Artist Spotlight: Donna Bernstein

Jul 26, 19

Donna Bernstein is a long time represented artist here at ANFA Gallery, highlighting her simplistic, yet powerful portrayals of horses—her work demonstrates the essence of line and the understanding of form. From New York and currently living in Arizona, her work and fine art fashion can be seen all around! In her own words…

“I paint the classic form of the horse in modern colors and a signature style. In the process, I have learned it is not horses that I paint; I paint the way they make me feel.”

Artist Spotlight: Daniela Schweitzer

Jun 18, 19
Artist: Daniela Schweitzer, pictured with work.

Our current show Form Figure Gesture opened a couple weeks ago and features work by Gail Ragains, Lisa Moore, Bonnie Goldberg and Daniela Schweitzer—who we are highlighting in this artist spotlight!

Daniela Schweitzer was born in the countryside of Argentina and currently resides in Santa Monica, CA where she paints both in her studio as well as en plain air along the coast. Having been featured in UK Vogue and with several solo exhibitions on the horizon, we are honored to represent her and her assortment of works that call in all sorts of color and subjectivity. LA based art critic, Peter Frank wrote just last year, that “she has developed a distinctive style that yet bespeaks its roots, and extends a painterly tradition that in this day and age would hardly seem extendable. More importantly, she makes art not to admire its philosophical intricacy, but to share that intricacy with her viewers.” For full written critique, please click here!

Read on to get to know Daniela: her life, work and ideas + view all works by her available at our gallery—PLUS a sneak peek into her studio!

Artist Spotlight: Gail Ragains

Jun 5, 19

Gail Ragains is a remarkable person who has done so much, and is still doing so much! We’d all like to take a stroll in her back-yard and talk to her all about the crazy experience of participating in the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon! Amazing and driven, her painting style is relaxed and riddled with improvisation.

She allows the paint to just be what it is, and non-intentionally reacts to the paint as it’s applied with ease. The work speaks for itself as it portrays it’s raw form and seemingly exists to the viewer as an experience.

With 25 years of being a massage therapist under her belt, she depicts the human form with a hands-on outlook; and having been painting since the early 1900’s, she is represented in galleries in both the US and Canada— Where her figures induce a sense of overall relaxation.

Read on to learn more about Gail Ragains, see her life and love for coffee, and works available here at ANFA Gallery!
