Her approach translates the essence of the subject into a language of color with diverse brush and palette strokes. Typically, the canvases are large scale to more vividly draw the viewer into the subject. As her commitment to animals, Anne donates 10% of her sales to animal rescue groups, including the Dixie Animal Alliance, Old Friends Equine Rescue, and Zion Animal Lovers.

Central Utah Art Center
UP: Public Property
by Sean Slemon September 7 October 10. Opening Reception Friday September 7th 6-9pm. A video installation, the title piece of the show, will be presented, alongside drawing, photography and site-specific installation. The new work leaves off from his previous exhibition-NonExclusive
, in May of this year and deals with the interaction of man and nature, their ambivalent relationship and how nature is co-opted by man. More specifically, the installation examines how elements of nature such as light and trees have been turned into commodity, while at the same time they are natural resources that are supposedly available to all. Public Property
continues with this idea of what natural infrastructure is-as something that can be owned and at the same time, be available to all. It is this ambiguity that drives the imagery and installation.
