Ann Trusty
Joining the Garden This Week

About

Oil on canvas with black wood frame 5 x 7" ANN TRUSTY is an accomplished third generation artist whose work embodies the natural world and is created through direct observation and translation of her subjects into her paintings. She has found inspiration in the dancing light across the water of the Hudson River (where she had a studio for ten years), as well as the big sky and waving tall grasses of the open plains of the Midwest (her current home). She studied fine art at Hampshire College, Amherst, Massachusetts; the Kansas City Art Institute; and the University of Kansas. Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States, France and Turkey in both museum and gallery exhibitions, and has been reviewed favorably by the New York Times. Her current compositions in oil and watercolor are explorations of Nature through paintings of her gardens, designed specifically as subjects for her art. These paintings are not only emblematic of her consummate skill as a painter, but also as an artist who deeply understands the connection between ourselves and the natural world. The garden, for her, is a metaphor for the larger natural world, where universal themes can be explored through observation and expression in painting. ____________________________________________________________________ ANN TRUSTY Born: Kansas City, MO 1954 SELECTED EXHIBITIONS AND AWARDS 2016 CATHARINE LORILLARD WOLFE ART CLUB, National Juried Exhibition, National Arts Club, New York, New York. 2015 AMERICAN WOMEN ARTISTS, National Juried Exhibition, Bonner David Gallery, Scottsdale, Arizona.
