An Annegarn Work as a Christmas Present – an other people's art posting

Dec 26, 2021

We went to our local RiverView Gallery looking for a Christmas present for out oldest girl – they were in need for some art to hang on their walls. After almost an hour of considering a number of pieces, Nan noticed this set of 3.25x5 inch ceramic and wood pieces on a table, not yet hung. Bingo. Didn’t know they were Maria Annegarn’s work until we looked at the tags. She’s one of about a half dozen local artists that we’ve wound up, without trying, collecting. We have a number of her wonderful, small human figures.

If it wasn’t Christmas, we’d be looking for a place to hang them – but it does feel good to give something you would want for yourself. Then you know it’s a good one. Caron took this picture for us after she hung them. OK, I moved them a little closer together in Photoshop so I could squeeze the image in here. Darn I like these… And the one we get out just for Christmas – her Christmas Lady. That’s a lump of coal in the bag

Maria doesn’t seem to have a web site any longer, but her work can be found in RiverView Gallery in town – she does have a following…
