It’s been a whirl wind couple of months.
In October we had a preview opening at Scarlet Begonias in Flourtown to introduce The AnA Project and promote our upcoming events. A few weeks later we presented The AnA Project through POST, Philadelphia Open Studio Tours. Anthe had a retrospective of work on display . Starting with her journey's throughout France, Greece, Maine, the Southwestern states, and Canada where she began her current work on movement. Joining her in her pop-up studio for POST was Amy Margaret Unks, the principle dancer for the AnA Project.
Amy Margaret and Anthe, artist and instructor gave their first performance. Amy danced on the hour while Anthe drew her movements. Anthe’s drawings were projected and unfolded as they occurred before the audiences eyes. Amy and Anthe were accompanied by live music of Angelo Reid on percussion.
The works created during this live performance have been made into digital collages which were later auctioned off during the first Annual Silent Auction and Exhibition in November.
Joe Borelli and Suzanne Sheeder of Chestnut Hill Gallery graciously provided the space for our first Annual Silent Auction and Exhibition. We had a wonderful turnout. Lots of items were generously donated, bid upon and taken home. (Full List of Donors Click Here) It was a joyous occasion with great food, drink, and live music.
We were fortunate enough to have Cheri France of the Pennsylvania Flute Choir, who played classical and jazz music. Later in the evening Kitty Kelly and Mike Albrecht played Irish tunes on the guitar and violin. During the evening’s activities a live auction ensued. Several artworks by Anthe were actively sought, bid in and have found new homes. One such item is the “ Three Graces –trio” which was a digital collage made from the live performance during POST two weeks before. This piece is pictured to the right above. The piece pictured to the left is titled " Pretty in Pink. It too was created during POST. Both can be purchased in 8 x 10" 8.5 x 11" sizes for $35 & $45 unframed.
