Artists and Collectors Speak about Anne Hughes' Art

Anne Hughes is a master composer. Her works are symphonies, bold yet infinitely nuanced, elegant, succulent with delicious color, and resonating with the myriad intimate rhythms of life itself. - Melissa Jay Craig, Artist, IL

Anne Hughes’ richly chromatic artworks combine science and nature into exciting, dreamlike environments, both imaginary and real. - Jonathan Ricci, Artist, NJ

The art of Anne Hughes is intuitive in both form and color, with imagery that is at once recognizable, while at the same time seeming to emerge solely from her imagination. She creates a world on paper in which the viewer is compelled to explore. - Kreg Yingst, Artist, FL

Anne’s work beautifully co-mingles abstract and figurative worlds.  Formal design elements can seamlessly morph into colorful images that evoke a magical sense of place. It’s a pleasure to see her imagery create a colorful life, cradled among the formally dynamic aspects of her art making. - Mary Burke, Artist, MI

I watched this piece (Canopy, pages40/41) at the gallery as it followed me across the room, changing again and again. That golden river of light splashed down the hillside, displacing / releasing? - just a few of the creatures that dwell inside your creative mind. Is that the hand of G-d that I see? - Jan McReynolds, Collector and Admirer, IL

Looking at Anne Hughes’s art is a wondrous journey into the unknown that expands the mind. Each painting sparks curiosity as the viewer discovers multiple pathways that unfold and flourish into thoughtful, playful worlds. It’s like discovering a new gem that glints and draws you into a world of wonder. The imagery is beautiful, rich and profound. - Beverly Zawitkoski, Artist, QC
