Anne Buckwalter (b. 1987, Lancaster, PA) is an artist exploring female identity and the coexistence of contradictory elements. Inspired by the folk art traditions of her Pennsylvania Dutch heritage, her work arranges disparate objects in mysterious rooms and ambiguous spaces. By imagining obscure narratives that embrace paradoxes, her paintings delve into questions about the female body, intimacy, and gender roles.
Buckwalter received her BFA from Tyler School of Art, and her MFA from Maine College of Art. Recent solo exhibitions include Rachel Uffner Gallery, NY; Pentimenti Gallery, PA; and Freedman Gallery at Albright College, PA. Recent group exhibitions include Monya Rowe Gallery, NY; New Discretions, NY; and the Center for Maine Contemporary Art, ME. Buckwalter received a Joan Mitchell Foundation Emerging Artist Grant in 2016 and a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant in 2021. She has been an artist-in-residence at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity; Hewnoaks Artist Colony; Galveston Artist Residency; and the Vermont Studio Center. In summer of 2022, Buckwalter will be an artist-in-resident at MassMoCA, MA. Forthcoming exhibitions include Friends Indeed Gallery, SF; Andrea Festa Fine Art, Rome, Italy; and Monya Rowe Gallery, NY. Buckwalter lives and works in Philadelphia, PA.
