Wed, March 10 – Tellus/Caelus: Seeing Earth and Sky
March 10 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us for an artist talk with our March exhibiting artist, Anne Marchand, as she talks about her current exhibition, Tellus/Caelus: Seeing Earth and Sky. Anne Marchand’s solo exhibition showcased in the historic Whittemore House features twenty recent paintings, marking a new level in the artist’s stylistic evolution over the last ten years. Now, at the beginning of 2021, the paintings selected for this exhibit are expressions of the artist’s heartfelt connection to her understanding of the unity of creation. Full of brilliant color and gesture, with dense surfaces layered with acrylic, ink, charcoal and other media, these paintings can provide the willing viewer with a sense of the way that having that “whole earth” perspective can be both individually and universally transformative, leading toward a more peaceful and just world for all. Learn more about the exhibit on our “Museum & Gallery” page.
Anne Marchand was born in New Orleans. She majored in art at Auburn University, graduating with a BA, and then earned an MFA from the University of Georgia. Her early artistic focus was the figure, and she was especially drawn to the work of Francis Bacon for his expressive paintings of the human body.
Marchand’s work is published in 100 Artists of the Mid Atlantic, Art Voices Magazine, Artists Homes and Studios, Studio Visit Magazine, and Object Lessons, Beauty and Meaning in Art. She is recipient of an Artist Fellowship 2020 from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.
