Annie Stegg Gerard, “Voices of Spring”

Haven Gallery

Northport, NY– Haven Gallery is honored to present “Voices of Spring”, a solo exhibition of new paintings by Georgia based artist Annie Stegg Gerard. “Voices of Spring” is Stegg Gerard’s second solo show with the gallery and will include a collection of paintings than span the artists traditional lush forested realms and enchanting oceanscapes. Each masterfully rendered oil painting will teem with mythological undertones and couple Stegg Gerard’s timeless female portraits with animal familiars. Each canvas is skillfully painted with influences and traditions stemming from classically trained and revered artists of the past commingled with the artists own enchanting tales of nostalgia and natural harmony.

A bygone era of nature-centric compositions and attention to detail is found and further expressed through these echoes of historic old masters, specifically of the Rococo and Pre-Raphaelite period. Classical poses coupled with lush landscapes and dreamy compositions create magical tableaus reminding us of the beauty that still exists all around us and the harmony of the natural world. Further, a welcoming narrative harking to the Golden Age of fantasy illustration can also be found in each story brought to life by Stegg Gerard’s hand.

ABOUT ANNIE STEGG GERARD
Annie has a special love for the 18th century Rococo painters who have had a large influence on her own method. Inspired by nature, folklore and mythology, her work evokes emotion and imagination in the viewer. She finds inspiration in their imagination, and the dreamlike palette and lively brushwork that combine to create a wonderful atmosphere of enchantment. She believes that they sought to transport us to different worlds and fantastic places though their works. In her own work, known for it’s beautiful, enigmatic figures and lively creatures, Annie strives to depict this same transportive effect to the viewer.

Annie has been exhibiting her work for seven years and has done notable publishing work for clients such as Disney, Hasbro, Wizards of the Coast, Easton press, Ballistic Publishing and more. Her work is found in private collections all over the world.

Olga Esther “Once upon a time: a world where many worlds fit”

Haven Gallery

“ We live in societies based on relations of domination and on the exclusion of the different, the other, the vulnerable. These attitudes of domination take place at all levels and lead us not only to the destruction of nature and the mistreatment of nonhuman animals, but also to the oppression and discrimination of some human beings over others, whether by gender, ethnicity, sexual option or different abilities.

I believe in a more just world, and that world we can not achieve through denial and hatred of the vulnerable “other”.
I believe in a diverse world based on inclusion, compassion, empathy and caring for others. A world in which non-human animals are respected as individuals capable of suffering physically and emotionally and in which we all care for the Earth, as our home and the home of future generations.

In the world that I want, we all fit. “Once upon a time: A World where many worlds fit.”” – Olga Esther
