My favorite portrait from the show with the clay mask.
Tuesday I took my IB Visual Art students to see local artist, Zanne Brunner's solo exhibit "Voyage" at I-Square Visions Art gallery. Zanne is a good friend of mine and agreed to meet us at the gallery after school to talk about herself and her "voyage" as an artist, teacher and now director of the I-square gallery.
Zanne entertained us with her adventures and journey as a child growing up in Detroit, which inspired her love for the color teal. She told us about her first painting teacher in collage who told her to limit her choice of colors...like that worked. She worked as a graphic artist in N.J. and later came to R.I.T for her teacher degree. She was a High School Art teacher in Webster until she retired a few years ago. She is now a full time artist who also works as the director for I-Square Visions Art gallery in Irondequoit.
