Anne Vaccaro, M.F.A.
Anne Vaccaro was born in New York in 1947 and grew up in Philadelphia. She has her BFA in Painting and Printmaking from Acadia University and MFA in Painting from Tyler School of Art. Vaccaro studied with W. Dean Gillette, David Pease, Daniel Dallman and Romas Viesulas.
She has produced artwork in a variety of media including acrylic and mixed media on canvas and paper, mixed media sculpture, clay, embossing, and beaded and mixed media jewelry.
"Having Dean Gillette, who studied with Josef Albers, as an instructor, it is no wonder that I consider myself to be a colorist. Romas Viesulas gave me a feel for texture, Daniel Dallman, layering and experimentation and David Pease, attention to detail. I use spraying, throwing, and staining, as well as heavy impasto and attachments. Originally the iconography was inspired by the space walks I watched on TV during the 1960s, but rapidly developed a biological component. Now, both of these elements dissect each picture plane as they meet, merge and float through each other."
She has enjoyed one-person shows in Pennsylvania,Georgia, Louisiana, Florida, Texas, New York and Ohio.
