Anne Gaines: Mixed Media Muralist is
GAL’s Demo Artist on March 5th
Anne Gaines is a versatile artist who has worked in a variety of media, yet her ‘signature work’ is her complex mixed-media folding screens, shaped wall pieces, and murals.
Several of Anne’s murals in recent years have become collaborative, one being a 72’x26’ mural produced on the north side of a women’s shelter, San Jose Obrero Mission, in Chicago’s Little Village neighborhood. By the conclusion of the project, over 100 volunteers participated with Gaines, who had received a Neighborhood Arts Program Grant in 2012 for the project. Anne enjoys sharing her skills with others, a quality that led to her appointment as Visiting Faculty at her Alma Mater, Principia College, in 2014 where she taught a class in public art. The end result of the course was a multi-sectioned mural on the side of a building in the Hunterstown neighborhood in Alton, IL, in the Upper Mississippi region.
