View Into the Craft – Artist Talk at Sparks Gallery

I recently heard someone explain that the difference between art and craft is that art is the finished work, and craft is the process. Even though we enjoy an artist’s finish product, rarely do we, as outsiders, get to see the craft and all an artist goes through to get to the piece we see displayed. That’s what is great about artist talks, having the privilege to hear the about process, struggles and successes.  Many times we learn something surprising,…

Anna has a beautiful classic style, creating environmental, portrait and still-life pieces that would be at home in a museum of classic art as they would in the homes of the discriminating collector. She…
