Art Exhibit: Now to Jan 5

Anda Styler

New England Landscapes

 

                    

 

         


The Sherman Library is honored to present the artwork of Sherman resident Anda Styler. Anda began painting in acrylics when she was 16 and pusued her studies at the Parson School of Design. Anda has had many accomplishments in the art world, including, interviews with both local and national publications, such as American Art Collector, Who’s Who in America, Country Garden Magazine, Victoria Magazine, Art Speak Magazine NY, numerous awards and recognition for work as a painter. Her paintings and techniques are published in two books by North Light Publications. Her works are currently in permanent collections and galleries in and around New England and to her credit she has had many one woman shows with great success. She is also one of 25 artists to be chosen this year to participate in the Chroma Paint Trial - testing their new line of paintsand in 2014 she was chosen from over 2,100 entrants in the Excellence Competition in Southwest Art magazine as the top 75 painters. 

Ms. Styler paints both in and out of the studio. She continues to explore subject matter, but is especially drawn to the magic of the landscape, places she travels to as well as the hidden places that are not often seen. Open space and old weathered buildings are fast disappearing and there is a special magic in the landscape where the old barns are, and the fields that are full of wild flowers and grasses. Ms. Styler is also an avid gardener and many of the flowers that appear in her work come from her own garden. Working with shadow, light, vibrant color, mood and sky she brings excitement to her work that reflects the world around her and captures the unique and lasting beauty that only nature reflects.
