Featured Member Artist at Rehoboth Beach City Hall
September 12, 2023 - October 31, 2023
The Rehoboth Art League is pleased to announce Anne Barney as our featured artist at Rehoboth Beach City Hall.
Anne Barney is a pastel and woodcut artist and poet living in Rehoboth Beach. She is the author of four poetry chapbooks: “After the Barn Door Opened,” “Nosegay,” and “Pinned to the Corkboard” from Pudding House Publications, and “Stolen Joy” from Icarus Books. With over 100 publishing credits for her poems and articles, she teaches poetry and journaling classes in the Delmarva region, including Rehoboth Beach, Milford, and Chestertown, MD.
Anne took art lessons with Robert Howard in Great Cacapon, WV before moving to Rehoboth Beach in 2017. Since then, she has studied with Nick Serratore in Milton and Jill Glassman in Berlin, MD. Anne exhibits in annual Members’ Exhibitions at the Academy Art Museum in Easton, MD and in Members’ Fine Art Exhibitions at the Rehoboth Art League (RAL). David Brinley, judge for the 2022 RAL exhibit, awarded her painting “Approaching Storm” the Faucett Okie Award for an emerging Delaware artist working in oil or pastel.
Anne’s work is in private collections in Sussex County and the Baltimore-Washington area. Currently, a collection of her paintings “Scene on the Trail” is in the RAL Members’ Gallery on the second floor of the Rehoboth Beach City Hall. Beginning October 3, some of her white-line woodcuts will be in the Delaware White-Line Woodcut Guild’s exhibit “Making the Cut” at the Lewes Public Library.
Anne’s paintings are primarily of landscapes she photographs while hiking in National, regional, and state parks. She particularly likes landscapes that can only be seen on foot.
Anne is a member of the Rehoboth Art League, the Mispillion Art League, the Art League of Ocean City, the Academy Art Museum of Easton, MD, the Maryland Pastel Society, the Delaware White-Line Woodcut Guild, and the Rehoboth Beach Writers’ Guild.
