Anne Gunthner graduated from the Univ. of North Texas with a major in Clothing and Textiles and a minor in Art. While serving as a retail advertising art director in New York City, she continued to pursue her fine arts passion through additional class studies at The Art Students League, The School of Visual Arts, and FIT.
Upon retiring from advertising to raise a family, she began painting and teaching art classes privately. It was during this time that she discovered immense gratification in passing on what she had learned to others. For the past 15 years, Anne has been teaching classes and workshops to children, teens, and adults. She works in a variety of mediums including pastel, watercolor, and oils. Regardless of the medium used, Anne aims to capture the soul and essence of her subject while keeping the compositions fresh and alive to the very last stroke.
Anne has exhibited her art at galleries in Connecticut, New York, and Long Island. She is currently an associate member of Oil Painters of America, The Pastel Society of America, and The American Watercolor Society. Anne teaches at The Village Artist in Huntington, NY as well as being an art instructor for a variety of library and school district Continuing Ed programs on a regular basis.
