Artist Profile of Ann Sklar: Modern Landscapes and Abstract Paintings

We are thrilled to have Ann Sklar's work for another summer season at The Kelpie! Ann's calming yet vibrant abstracted skylines and horizons draw the eye of everyone who walks through our door.

"Painting is an expression of my connection to both the visual world and my own inner world. The environment and our reaction to it help to shape us, to define who we are. I like to think that a painting has the ability to help a person respond to everyday experiences.

My modern landscapes are meant to evoke a mood of contemplation of a quiet time and place. They are meditations on what we see every day. I like to create a feeling of limitlessness and mystery; and a sense that the horizon is infinite. I hope that the viewer will have an emotional response and reaction to each painting."

We invite you to join us in appreciation of Ann Sklar's work this summer season at The Kelpie.
