NVA member :: Ann Gorbett

There are many talented members of the Neponset Valley Artists. At a recent painting class I took some photos of those in attendance in action to do a series of blog posts showcasing them. Ann Gorbett is the first!

Ann has a very specific procedure when she paints. She dons her painting shirt. She places her palette and paints just so. Her box of tissues is placed at a perfect angle a predetermined constant distance from her left hand. She also folds her brown paper trash bag a certain way. We love her for these wonderful peculiarities.

She and her husband, Polo Barrera, are permanent artist members of the Art Gallery at Patriot Place.

Ann Gorbett is a talented artist and her work is striking particularly because she works in palette knife solely. At a gallery9 opening reception last night she brought in this cake:

A real Ann Gogh! It was delicious and gorgeously beautiful!!!
