1. Anne Lindberg makes meticulous drawings using an architect’s parallel bar and 17 different lead pencils. She creates lines with very little space between them in varying levels of darkness and density to create optical effects.

2. Her grants and awards include: Painters & Sculptors award, Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant, a Charlotte Street Foundation Fellowship, two ArtsKC Fund Inspiration Grants, and a Lighton International Artists Exchange grant. She was also Visiting Artist-in-Residence/Head of Department at Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2005.

3. Art Critic Ann Landi said of the artist in ArtNews, “With the most modest of means, pencil on cotton mat board, Anne Lindberg makes drawing that appear to ripple, shimmer, catch the light, and respond to the viewer’s changing position. As wide as ten feet, they call to mind curtains in a soft breeze—as well as a venerable ancestry of Minimalist masters, from Sol LeWitt to Richard Serra.”

Find Lindberg’s work in the TWO x TWO for AIDS and Art auction, 2013.
