Anne Shreve

Anne Shreve’s joyful canvases are celebrations of color, light and the relationships of her subject to their environment. A native of West Virginia, she now lives in Naples, Florida where she continues to paint in her unique, vibrant approach to realism – the result of a lifetime of observing.

Shreve attended the NYC Art Students League; studied with Nell Blaine; has had over twenty solo shows; was awarded an honorary Doctor of Fine Arts degree by the University of Charleston and was one of seventeen artists whose work represented the United States at the 1992 World Expo in Seville.

Her work can be found in public and private collections including the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, D.C.; the Clay Center, Charleston, WV; the University of Charleston; the Naples Museum of Art; the Von Liebig Center for the Arts, Naples, Florida; Sweet Briar College; the WV Governor’s Mansion and the collection of Senator and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller IV.
