A graduate of the University of North Texas, with a major in Fashion Design, and retired advertising professional, Anne B. Gunthner now pursues her love of fine art full time. She works in pastel, watercolor and oil, immerses herself in a disciplined study of fine art, and teaches. This exhibit shares subjects near and dear to her heart–the beauty and grandeur of local historic Gold Coast mansion, Coindre Hall, and the four-legged visitors who frequent the scenic grounds of this mansion on any given day. Inspired by both American and European artists, Gunthner’s pastel paintings reflect the vibrancy of color, texture and light captured by Impressionist painters of the 19th and 20th centuries. She captures the soul of her subjects in compositions that are fresh and alive to the very last stroke. Gunthner teaches workshops and art classes at The Village Artist in Huntington, NY. She is an associate member of thePastel Society of America as well as a member of the Huntington Arts Council. More of her work may be viewed at annebgunthner.com.
