"Second Saturday" Gallery Walk

November 11, 2000

5 - 7 p.m.

Anna Meyer Zachurski, originally from Boston, Massachusetts, learned a primitive form of etching on plexiglass at a small Quaker school in Poughkeepsie, New York. She attended Grinnell College and received a B.A. in Slavic Languages and Literature from Harvard University. She studied art theory and painting at Harvard with New York artist Paul Rotterdam. She traveled to Krakow, Poland, to pursue graduate studies in intaglio and painting with Polish masters at the Akademia Sztuk Pieknych (Academy of Fine Arts). After returning to the United States, Anna settled in New York City and taught English to Slavic residents of the East Village while working in the printmaking studios of Robert Black burn and Parsons School of Design. Anna has lived in the Washisngton, DC, area since 1988. An extremely prolific artist, Anna’s work is rich in color and texture, creating atmospheres of playful spontaneity.

Michael Turpenoffis a resident of Arlington, Virginia. Originally from Illinois, he received his B.A. in Psychology from Southern Illinois University, M. A. in Psychology from Washington University, Missouri, and a Master of Fine Arts, Studio, from Southern Illinois University. He displays regularly at the Torpedo Factory. Michael feels that the common thread across all art is that it conveys information about all aspects of life. It may be emotional, physical, spiritual, intellectual, sensory, sociological, religious, philosophical, or scientific aspects of experience. The use of intense and complimentary hues in his recent pastel landscapes conveys conflict inherent in these life experiences. His landscapes, while recognizable, are abstracted into vibrant areas of color and shape. Through the use of these primary colors his work vibrates with the intensity of emotion as seen in a Van Gogh.

Newman Gallery & Custom Frames will be closed from
