Visual Arts: Mixed, Painting, Photography
Anna Friesen


I recently moved to Sonoma County from Huntington Beach, California where I received recognition with funding for an Individual Artist Grant from Arts Orange County to produce and show large-scale banners of original manipulated photos; participate as artist participant and Installation group leader in Judy Chicago/Donald Sutherland-led artist project, “Imagining the Future,” Pomona, CA; photo work displayed at John Wayne Airport’s Community Showcase; invited to participate at Huntington Beach Art Center, “City Reimagine”.  March, 2017 I participate in a 2-person show at LA ArtCore’s Brewery Annex Gallery in Los Angeles.  My art experience and involvement includes teaching art history-based after school art, arts administration at regional and county arts councils, and serving on the City of Huntington Beach’s Allied Arts Board.  I am interested in exploring the life-giving force of the arts in my own life, as well in the life of others.
