Reynolds Fine Art
is pleased to present
View of the Past: Anna Held Audette  

Reynolds Fine Art is pleased to present Anna Held Audette in her first solo exhibition at the gallery.  This collection will showcase a selection of Audette's paintings, prints and drawings that came out of her illustrious career as an artist, writer, and teacher, spanning over fifty years.
In addition to Audette's paintings, Reynolds Fine Art will be showing a selection of works on paper by the artist. Where Audette's canvases tend to convey auras of resilience and power, despite their subjects declining condition, her prints and drawings possess the softer quality of a delicate, personal narrative. These works create an intimacy with the artist and reveal more of her internal conflicts; lighthearted and simple thoughts are juxtaposed with images that elicit a darker, more contorted, emotional response.

In 2008 Anna Held Audette was diagnosed with Fronto-Temporal Degeneration, an extremely rare form of Alzheimer's. Since her diagnosis, Audette's cognitive functions have declined, but with the assistance of a former student she has carried on with painting and drawing.
