Anderson Ranch Editions: Allison Stewart
About the Artist
Trained as a biologist, Allison Stewart’s forty-year visual arts career has been steadfastly informed by our increasingly fragile environments and the ultimate interconnectedness of all living things. Using deep layers of color and texture to illustrate experiences of time and transformation, Stewart navigates the complex and often disturbing relationships between humans and nature. Activated in the liminal space between realism and abstraction, Stewart’s paintings are visual diaries upon which her responses to our threatened landscape are illuminated.
Stewart has exhibited extensively throughout the United States and is represented by the Arthur Roger Gallery in New Orleans, Gail Severn Gallery in Sun Valley, and Michael Warren Contemporary in Denver. Her work is included in many public, corporate and private collections, including the U.S. Department of State Art in Embassies, the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Historic New Orleans Collection, Ogden Museum of Southern Art, Freeport McMoRan, ARCO, American Express, Pan American Life, and the Pensacola Museum of Art. Awards include fellowships and grants from the Louisiana Division of the Arts, the Endowment for the Humanities, and the Mary Freeman Wisdom Foundation, and artist-in-residence with Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Colorado.
Stewart holds a BS in Biology from Spring Hill College, and an MFA from the University of New Orleans. She has served on the faculty of the New Orleans Academy of Fine Art, Loyola University, Delgado Community College, Aspen Museum of Art and Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Colorado. She maintains studios in New Orleans and Snowmass Village, CO.
