February 1-24, 2019 Artist Reception: February 1 6-8PM
Recently completing her first museum Solo exhibit at Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, Anne Schreivogl of Anacortes, WA. joins Roby King Gallery.
Born and raised in Seattle, Washington, Schreivogl received her formal education at Western Washington University and the Seattle Academy of Fine Art (now GAGE) where she attended as an arts grant recipient of the Anacortes Arts Foundation. She has always carried a pen and sketchpad – whether she has studied in France, taught English in Japan, or during her travels by bicycle across the U.S. She is currently writing a book on Creativity. She resides in her home and studio on Fidalgo Island, in Anacortes, WA.
“With my art I seek to transmit the joy I see and feel in everyday moments onto canvas. Birds perched on wires, chicks with sticks knitting away, and jazz musicians are common motifs. My last name ‘Schreivogl’ means ‘screeching bird’ and birds often find their way into my art”.
She was selected “Best of the West” by Southwest Art Magazine and her work can be found in the collections of the Seattle Aquarium, Island Hospital, Anacortes Public Library, Lambiel Museum among others. She has been a featured poster artist for the Port Townsend Film Festival (2014), Anacortes Jazz Festivals (2005, 2004), and Anacortes Arts Festival (2006).
She actively juries and judges Northwest art shows, including most recently the Women Painters of Washington summer show (2015).
