Anne Boysen - Celebrate Life!

Anne Boysen
returns to
Art & Jewelry
for a special event
Friday, October 10th
6 - 8pm
Open House and Wine Tasting

Philadelphia artist, Anne Boysen, returns to Spectrum Art & Jewelry for her first solo exhibition since her diagnosis with ovarian cancer more than two years ago. This show is meant as a celebration of her excellent progress in her recovery from this major challenge. Anne’s artwork has been described as “exuberant”, “vibrant”, and “outrageous”. It clearly reflects her love of life, nature and the world of vivid color. A singer and musician, as well as an artist, Anne has been known to dance with her paintings as she creates them in her spacious home studio, the movement and rhythm evident in her abstracted floral interpretations.

Spectrum Art & Jewelry has been proud to represent Anne for more than eight years. She was the feature artist at the grand re-opening of the gallery in its Forum location in 2000 and has been a regular contributor since then. This past March, Spectrum hosted a fund raiser for the artist and was delighted at the response from local artists and collectors alike. Through a party, art sale and auction they were able to raise $3,000 to help with Anne’s medical bills. At that time, she was not well enough to work.

Now, dramatically improved, Anne is recovered enough to be able to plan this trip to Wilmington to share her artworks once again with her devoted fans. Star Sosa, owner of Spectrum Art & Jewelry, is thrilled at the opportunity to celebrate the life and works of this talented painter and great friend.
