Anthony, Carol – American Artist

Carol Anthony

Born in 1943 in New York City, Carol Anthony studied at the BFA Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, Rhode Island where she received a BFA in 1966.

Anthony works primarily in craypas on gessoed masonite, rubbing and blending the colors with her fingers, images are drafted layer by layer to create an unearthly light and dreamlike quality. Carol Anthony’s paintings are the means through which she conveys her internal visions. solitary rooms with a tiny window allowing a bright shaft of light to warm a place of contemplation. They have an aura of expectation, of a place that has been prepared for a visitor who has not yet arrived, at once empty yet inviting. She also creates beautiful collages, using small boxes and found objects, birds nests and old letters.

Carol Anthony has been represented by the Maxwell Davidson Gallery since 1981 having ten exhibitions during that period. She lives and works in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She is in many collections including: the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington D.C. and the Wadsworth Athenaeum, Hartford, Connecticut. In 1996 she had a Retrospective at the Neuberger Museum, Purchase, New York. – Note courtesy of the Maxwell Davidson Gallery.
