The Art Of



Anne B. Gunthner graduated from the University of North Texas with a major in Clothing and Textiles and a minor in Art. She then went on to study fashion and general illustration at the Fashion Institute of Technology, the Art Students League and the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Anne worked for many years in retail advertising as both a layout artist and art director for newspaper and catalog.

After retiring from advertising, Anne continued to pursue her fine arts passion through teaching, workshops and class studies. She finds great pleasure in working with a variety of mediums including pastel, watercolor and oil.

Anne’s pastel and watercolor paintings portray the vibrancy of color, texture and light captured by both European and American Impressionist painters of the 19th and 20th centuries. She enjoys the more refined, detailed still life studies of such artists such as Chardin, Delacroix and William Harnett for her work in oils. Regardless of the medium used, Anne aims to capture the soul and essence of her subject while keeping the composition fresh and alive to the very last stroke.

Anne has exhibited her work both in New York and Dallas art galleries. Ms. Gunthner teaches children’s and adult art classes & workshops at The Dallas Arboretum, The Craft Guild of Dallas, The Center for Creative Arts of Dallas, Brookhaven and SMU colleges and at local libraries. She also teaches privately as well as Plein Air painting workshops overseas in Italy and England.

Anne currently resides in Dallas, Texas.
