Anne Siems | Works on Paper | February 5 – April 30, 2014
Gail Severn Gallery is excited to exhibit the artwork of German-born artist Anne Siems once again in the Wood River Valley. Siems garnered a large following of her youthful cast of animal and human characters, who celebrate the joys and mysteries of life.
She has drawn inspiration from wildlife in Europe, featuring unforgettable animal portraits. Distinct identities emerge in each portrait with fable-like stories becoming the narrative. Ritual elements from Native American medicine and culture, rabbits, deer, owls and mythological animals, their pelts and feathers, are prominent subjects in Siems’ menagerie. The muse of the artist is both real and imaginary.
Siems, a Fulbright Scholar, has exhibited in Canada, Europe and throughout the United States.
Anne Siems’ work has been coveted by museums and collections throughout the United States and world. Museums include but are not limited to the Arkansas Art Center, Little Rock, AK, Boise Art Museum, Boise, ID, and the Tacoma Art Museum, Tacoma, WA.
