About the art in this issue:

Born in New Jersey, Anne Silber studied at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, and has lived and worked in the Boston area since 1977. Her work has been

shown in numerous one-person and group exhibitions around the United States and Europe, and her prints are included in many corporate and museum collections.

These works are limited-edition serigraphs, or silkscreen prints, handprinted by the artist using hand-cut lacquer film stencils. The inks are mixed with a large

percentage of transparent base, allowing for the visual “blending” of overlaid tones, creating an effect like that of well-controlled watercolors.

Silber’s work emphasizes graphic qualities: form, line, and especially color relationships. She enjoys working with colors in an almost musical sense, creating

harmonies and occasional dissonance with the combination of tones. Many of her works also explore the possibilities of light and shadow, with shadows

becoming as much an interesting and integral part of the composition as the objects casting them. More information about her artwork is available at Telephone: (617) 232-8344, or e-mail:
