Anne Harney

“Spending a lifetime of summers on Martha's Vineyard my work has evolved into natural forms of coastal scenes. My connection to the island developed a deep concern with natural forms life-plants, shells, hills, trees, stones and water. My paintings create a path of self-discovery. Reassembling pieces together from memory and imagination using textures, patterns and transparent layers make the viewer question how far reality can be pushed before it will yield the powerful essence of what is seen.” Anne Harney is a Boston-based painter who received her BFA with Honors in painting from Mass College of Art and Design in 2011. Awards include George Nick Award, Marcia Lloyd Award, Book Award, Vermont Studio Center Artist Grant and Residency 2016, 2019. Anne is a member of the National Association of Women Artist, NYC and MA. Sowa Artist Guild, Fenway Artist Studios, and Provincetown Art Association and Museum.
