September and October

Anne Kauff
“Inspired by Light”

Reception: Sunday, September 9, 1:00-4:00

Anne Kauff is known for paintings of the rural landscape that are
imbued with a quiet sense of place. Working in oils in a square or
almost square format, she uses a carefully calibrated palette and
a pared down sensibility to present a contemporary view of the
farms, barns and fields that are her subject matter.

The love she has for the landscape started young. Her childhood
was characterized by a lot of freedom to explore the natural
world; the ravines, creeks and fields around her Joliet home.
Kauff has spent many years painting en plein air. People often
comment on the quality of light in her work, and she attributes
this to the observational skills acquired painting outdoors under
all kinds of conditions.

Kauff’s work resides in numerous public and private collections.
Working out of her Arlington Heights studio, Kauff’s time is divided
between painting, accepting work on commission, and teaching.
She is represented by Danon Gallery in Evanston.
