Solo Exhibition 
July 20-September 16, 2016

Yesterday was a 9:30am-8:15pm installing day for my solo exhibition at the Fermilab Art Gallery, and I very pleased with the outcome. The main building at Fermilab (Wilson Hall) is a truly magnificent space; I feel like my work just seems to be floating in the air there.

Many thanks go out to amazing the crew: Georgia Schwender, Anne Mary Teichert, Margie Nagaitsev, Rose Moore, Bonnie King and Valerie Higgins  - for rolling up their sleeves and working hard putting all the work up on the walls!

Now that the exhibit is installed, I can sit, relax and enjoy the opening on Friday...

The two pieces below from my new "Impromptu" series are just being installed this week at the Gallery 19 for the opening reception and artist talk of the "Women We Love" exhibition on Friday, June 3rd 6-9pm. The exhibit will feature work by eight artists, and here is what the gallery wrote in their announcement of the show:

Impromptu I and II, watercolor on panel, 30"x30"

"We love these women because whatever their chosen medium--paint, print, photography, collage--the intent of their messaging is unavoidable.  Through their work, we are reminded of the constant fluctuations in our socio/political landscape."
I also loved what gallery owner Dietrich Klevorn wrote about my own work:
"Ana Zanic’s watercolors belie the rigor required to create the notions of amoebic flows, abandoned landscapes, ancient scribblings, aquatic dynamism. Only through such pure abstraction are we so readily lost and found."
"Women We Love" participating artists are Corinna Button, Linda Adele Goodine, Kathleen Hawkes, Sally Ko, Kathy Weaver, Brittney Leeanne Williams, Brigitte Wolf, Ana Zanic.

And these four new pieces below just arrived to Kathryn Markel Fine Arts last week. 

the four pieces above - all from the series "Flow", watercolor on paper, 22"x30"

    I feel the spring coming...

Every spring, I find myself excited about the awakened grass, sprouting plants and budding leaves, as those bright greens just overtake the subdued winter palette. I feel I have been somewhat dormant working in my studio over these past winter months, and now that the bright days are in store, even in the midst of this still pretty cold and rainy weather here in Chicagoland, I am moved by the potential of renewed nature.

Last year was a big one for me, both in my personal life of becoming a parent once again, and in my professional life, as I joined two more galleries; Walker Fine Art in Denver, and Gallery 19 in Chicago. Now being represented by five galleries across the United States I feel honored to have a chance to have my work seen, and hopefully enjoyed, by a large audience.

Gallery 19 will be featuring my work in their group exhibition opening in early June. Walker Fine Art will be showing my work in a four artists exhibit opening in November. I will write more about these event as they approach.

Until then, here are a few watercolors from my current "Flow" series.

This is one of Albert's recent drawings; here he was intrigued by the dry wildflowers we collected a few days ago while strolling along the Fox River bank. Today Albert turns six, and I continue to be inspired by his view of the world!
