Anne Harkness

Mooresville, North Carolina

Anne HarknessAs a contemporary artist, Anne Harkness seeks to capture a distinct point of view, often finding some unexpected beauty in views others might dismiss as ordinary. She focuses on the importance of line and shape in her work as a means of giving her compositions a strong foundation to reveal the many layers within each piece. Anne credits her emphasis on these particular components to her love of drawing and a desire to retain the looser marks that fill each piece with motion, and the joy she felt while painting them. She also looks for the surprises that come from spending time in a painting. These discoveries are her treasures and assure that she is always learning and seeking the ‘new-fresh’ for her work.

Anne is an alumnus of the Atlanta College of Art and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design from The Maryland Institute, College of Art. Her work as an art director in NYC for 15 years has embodied her work with a graphic element that viewers can detect in her paintings. In the past few years, her pieces have been in national and international shows, galleries and museums. She has been featured in American Art Collector Magazine, Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine, as well as in International Artist Magazine, where she won 2nd place in their Abstract/Experimental Art competition. She resides with her husband in Mooresville, NC and is represented by Providence Gallery and Vision Gallery, in NC. She is a member of American Women Artists and various other groups.
