About the Artist
Ann Chadwick Reid (Bow) received 2010 GAP Award funding to pay for framing of a series of five works of art for a two-person exhibition at Anchor Art Space in Anacortes, Washington in August 2010. Since retiring, Ann has created imagery that reflects on her experience of living on an island in the Pacific Northwest, allowing her direct access to nature, and in particular the variety of plants and birds that live close to and are dependent on the waters of Puget Sound. Within this environment she observes the tension and irony of the relationship between humans and the natural world which have become the basis for her work.

From the Artist
...I finally have time to pursue my work as a studio artist, something that was very difficult for me to do with a full-time job. The grant gives me support and confidence to continue my work. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
