A Life List in Silkscreen: The Art of Anne S. Faust
Anne Faust’s vibrant silkscreens display her deep knowledge of birds and their habitats as well as her mastery of this compelling medium. Although she majored in painting when she graduated from Boston University School of the Arts in 1968, for more than 30 years her preferred medium has been silkscreen printmaking. She was named Master Wildlife Artist by the Woodson Art Museum in 1999, the first woman, and the first printmaker, to receive this prestigious award. She lives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and continues to do hand-pulled prints of birds to this day.
The exhibition A Life List in Silkscreen: The Art of Anne S. Faust opens on Sunday, January 26 and will be on view at the Museum of American Bird Art through May 18, 2014. Hours, fees, and directions.
