Anne Finucane is constantly inspired by the beauty of Pennsylvania’s forests, orchards and fields. She conveys the passion she feels for the natural world in both abstract and realistic styles.
Anne grew up in Maine, the daughter of an artist. After earning her BA from Swarthmore College she moved to South Central Pennsylvania, and fell in love with the landscape.
Her colored pencil art was the subject of a feature article in American Artist Magazine in April of 2004, but since that time, she has been working with etchings, pastels,watercolors and linocuts.
Art has always been part of Anne’s life, in advocacy as well as practice. She works with both the Council for the Arts of Chambersburg and the Franklin County Art Alliance, and has served as guest curator and juror for art shows throughout the area, and as a panelist for the PA Council on the Arts.
On the final day of Anne’s exhibit, July 8th, she will be at GIB at 1:00 holding a gallery talk. She will discuss her techniques and take questions, followed by a live demonstration of how she makes her exciting linocuts, a printmaking technique in which a sheet of linoleum is used to create a relief surface.
We are very excited to have an artist of Anne’s caliber doing a meet and greet at our shop, above and beyond having her arresting artwork hanging on our walls. Don’t let this unique opportunity to meet a local celebrity pass you by.
