Rosanne Colvard
Featured Artist for November

Rosanne Colvard is a printmaker, painter, photographer, and textile designer.  This multitalented artist is a native born Floridian and the featured artist at the P.A.St.A. Art Gallery for the month of November.  She began studying art at Stetson University and later at Bowie Sate University, receiving her Master of Art degree from the University of Maryland.  Her introduction to printmaking began with Alan Kaneshiro at the National Collection of Fine Arts (now the National Portrait Gallery).  She was a founding member of the Washington Women's Printmaking group in D. C.  Additional studies were done at Anne Arundel Community College.

Colvard taught art at Annapolis Senior High School.  She was also instrumental in developing the graphics curriculum for Anne Arundel Countuy, MD.

Her award-winning art has been shown at the Baltimore Museum of Art, the Salmagundi Print Club in New York City, and numerous galleries in Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Massachusetts.  She is a member of the St. Augustine Art Association and the P.A.St.A. Art Gallery in St. Augustine.

Colors and shapes, flora and fauna are fascinating to her as she continues to explore the visual sentiments of life as well as the symbiosis of both nature, ancient and contemporary forms.  Colvard believes there is always something "new to learn" in creating, whether it is in techniques, surfaces, mediums, or subjects.

Her show's opening coincides with the First Friday Art Walk on November 2, 2018, from 5 to 9 p.m. at the P.A.St.A. Art Gallery, 214 Charlotte Street.  Refreshments served.  Always free.
