September 15 – October 15, 2021
Janice Anthony: Northern Lights
Opening Reception: Wednesday, September 15 from 5–7pm
Anthony’s mother was a naturalist who took her on wilderness camping expeditions. At an early age, Anthony learned about botany and geology, and developed a great affection for these wild mysterious places, which she has spent a lifetime exploring on canvas. For Anthony her painting has become a vehicle to explore the mysterious relationship between humanity and wilderness—parallel worlds where the natural world is clearly a world apart and self-sufficient.
Anthony holds a BFA from Boston University, and she was awarded a grant from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation. Her paintings have been included in numerous publications and in three books by Carl Little and Arnold Skolnik: Paintings of Maine, Paintings of Maine Islands, and Paintings of the Maine Winter, and the book “The Artist and the American Landscape” by John Driscoll. Her work has been exhibited in Maine and New York, and in national and international exhibitions, including “Masterworks from the International Guild of Realism.” In 2016, the International Guild of Realism selected Anthony’s work for an online international exhibition in The Guardian UK, and for their Winter Salon Online Exhibition in 2018. Anthony lives with her husband on a farm in Jackson, Maine, where she maintains a year-round studio.
