Ann Sklar at Harvest Gold Gallery

Ann Sklar, local Maine artist has new work in Harvest Gold Gallery! This abstract painter has had her works shown in over fifteen exhibitions, has art in Galleries from Maine to Florida, and has experience in many different fields of the arts. After studying at Arcadia University, Temple University, and Pennsylvania State University, Ann went on to be completely involved in Galleries, as co-founder, co-owner, design and development, member and partner of over four Galleries.

Ann is newly becoming recognized in the larger Artist community. Doing consignment pieces, she finds inspiration from not only the world around her, but the pictures in her mind, she speaks of it, “After many years of painting close up, realistic images I now think that my best paintings are the unplanned ones.   They emerge by some kind of instinctive feeling and are often nonobjective.  I play with the colors and forms until they work together, often applying layer after layer of paint.  When completed they can be quiet landscapes, still lives, or simply shapes and forms.” 

Ann’s paintings give a subtly surreal atmosphere to any nook or cranny. Her imagery lights up purple horizons, and splits light and dark into shades and colors she can’t help but to lay on canvas. Please stop by Harvest Gold Gallery on Route 5 in Center Lovell, Maine. 
See her beautiful works and check out the rest of all that the Gallery has to offer!

Shortly after graduation she turned her attention to earth sciences, and studied at Moscow Geological Exploration Academy, where at she earned a Degree in Geological Studies.
While working as a geologist and having the opportunity to see some of Russia’s most spectacular wildlife, she returned to painting landscapes, and participated in many regional art exhibitions. She also had the honor of being the first artist to ever put on a solo exhibition at the Museum of V. E. Lenin in the city of Kazan, Russia.
In 2001 Varvara immigrated to the United States, to Maine. In Maine she found new inspiration for her landscapes and still life’s. “New England, especially Maine, is a place whose lands, inland waters, coast and people have inspired many of her recent paintings.”
The Majority of Harmon’s works are done in oil, however she also works with acrylic, watercolors, and pencil. Although landscapes are her favorite subject, she also does still life paintings, portraits, and accepts commissioned work.
