Artist Spotlight: Sally Veach

Oct 20, 18

We are so excited to be representing Sally Veach, a new artist to Anne Neilson Fine Art Gallery! She is a fellow mountain dweller from the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, and has truly been a joy to get to know.

She’s a passionate, innovative artist who expresses herself, her thoughts, ideas and inspirations not only in her words written here, but also in her expressionistic paintings. Her work is especially meaningful as her Barns of Shenandoah series depicts “the tragedy of historic barns and the fact that they are slowly returning to nature”.

The preservation that occurs by making these paintings is the essence of the artists surroundings; the beauty, color and energy that occurs within nature. Her depictions thrill the viewer with the way air and earth come together to move nature, and also allow it to reclaim. Barns come from trees that belong to the soil, and in turn barns rest upon that soil, that ultimately takes back what is theirs.

In Tandem: Ellen Levine Dodd

Oct 3, 18

Ellen Levine Dodd is one of the artists ANFA is featuring in our currently hung show, In Tandem, alongside Joyce Howell—visit previous post to learn more about her!

Dodd is a bright and fabulous woman who’s life-long love of art has generated both large-scale, encapsulating, tactful paintings—as well as simple, yet complex smaller works that demonstrate the components and departed layers of her gestural attributions. Framed together or individually, these works on paper are so satisfying and claim intrigue.

Read on to learn more about the Ellen Levine Dodd, her artwork and her remarkably adventurous life thus far! (more…)
