Cityscapes Show

Donna and Roberta, the co-owners of Art On Broadway Gallery,  have encouraged me to have my first show since my stroke.They, and everybody else in the gallery is being so supportive of me! 
I am honored and a little apprehensive to do it. Maybe because my paintings are with my off hand? (my left hand)

Oh well!

The show is called “Cityscapes” and the opening in Saturday, August 11, from 6-9, and goes until September 1.

“Cityscapes” – Featured Show
“Remarkable!” – that’s what everyone says who sees the latest paintings by Annie Salness, artist and recent stroke survivor.

Salness, an accomplished artist for many years, has tackled landscapes, interiors, and urban scenes with aplomb; her use of lights and darks and her confident brushwork have always been evident in her work. She made painting with her dominant right hand look easy. Now, almost 21 months after suffering a major stroke that paralyzed her entire right side, Salness is back on top of her game creating “remarkable”paintings with her left hand. Her journey back to health and art hasn’t been easy, but it is remarkable, amazing, and inspirational.

“Midday” byAnnie Salness
