Collection: Ann Lofquist

Ann Lofquist is a painter whose landscapes resonate with a strong sense of place. Her intimate views capture transitory moments in time such as twilight, dusk, and dawn. Human yearnings and philosophical queries into our relationship with nature are all expressed through her exquisite rendition of form and light.

The notecards in this collection are taken from her sketchbooks of plein air subjects. These books are just packed with paintings and notes. Lofquist takes these ideas back to her studio, at The Mill in Shelburne Falls, for consideration as larger works that may take months to complete. These large studio paintings often deviate from the original scene considerable. The reproductions seen in this series of cards come from paintings that are quite small, accurate, and extremely local, in fact, from right here in Shelburne Falls.

Ann Lofquist received her master of fine arts degree from Indiana University in 1990. From 1990 to 1996, she was an assistant professor of art at Bowdoin College, Brunswick, Maine. She has had numerous solo exhibitions in New York and New England, and has shown at Hackett-Freedman, San Francisco; Spanierman Gallery, New York; Tatistcheff Gallery, New York; Winfield Gallery, Carmel, California; and Gross/McLeaf Gallery, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She has been the recipient of several fellowships and awards, and was included in The Artist and the American Landscape, by John Driscoll (1998). She currently resides in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts.
