anne brown assemblages from beaches, woods & fields artist open house thursday, may 7th from 6 to 8pm may 7th through may 31, 2015 Anne Brown has been involved for many years in different media with work suggested by the discovery of found objects from land and sea. She grew up in Marblehead, MA, where as a child she collected everything imaginable from the beach, woods and fields. Her childhood attraction to the natural world resurfaced as a adult in the form of creating art from what is at hand. Having rescued a cat from a Boston wharf, she was forced to boil fish to suit its appetite. Consequently, her art career began at the local fish markets through an education in the lore of fish bones. Because of their sculptural beauty, the bones were used in combination with other natural objects to make unique jewelry. As time went on, she developed techniques to combine unusual materials collected from the environment with metals and resin and worked on a large scale in conceptual collage, assemblage and sculpture. Her work has been exhibited nationally and illustrated in numerous publications. At a Cooper Hewitt NYC seminar for collectors, she was recommended as a major contemporary artist who had made a contribution through the use of materials and design. She is most recently referenced in NEW ART INTERNATIONAL AND DESIGN SOURCEBOOK. A member of the Copley Society, Boston, MA, she also maintains a number of gallery affiliations.
