ABOUT ANNE REICHARDT
Anne was born and grew up in Ft. Smith, Arkansas where she began to study art at age eight with St. Scholastica's Sr. Roberta who passed on much, including how art can be a connection to spirituality.
As a young adult working in interior design in New York City, Anne became interested in psychoanalytic theory, desiring to know something of the psyche or soul. She completed MD training at Chicago Medical School & psychiatric residency at Stanford University in 1983.
She lived for 10 years in Palo Alto & for 16 years in Monterey County, California, practicing psychiatry with an emphasis on depth therapy. As psychiatry became more medicine-oriented, Anne joyfully began to make art again. She retired to half-time psychiatry in 1997 and retired fully in 2004, devoting her time to making art.
She studied fine art & fine-art photography with William Giles and Eric Bosler, who were both important mentors. Will Giles and Anne had a formal, regular, private instruction arrangement for six years wherein Anne learned much about art's depth and breadth (as well as techniques) passed from Alfred Steiglitz to Minor White to William Giles to Anne. Eric Bosler and Anne worked together on a formal, regular basis for four years honing qualities and techniques of fine art and fine art photography.
Her various projects have received recognition & awards in many juried competitions over the years.
In 2006, Anne returned to Arkansas where her family's lived since 1838. Her great grandfather was General Bonneville, who opened up the great Northwest Territories, leading expeditions commissioned by four U. S. Presidents. Her grandfather, Chris Reichardt, was one of the first architects from the University of Arkansas which presently houses his beautiful, original architectural drawings in their Special Collections. Anne restored a farmhouse just outside of Fayetteville when she returned in 2006, and, in honor of the beautiful Ozark environment, created a two acre stroll garden with earth art & sculptural elements to enhance & preserve the rustic, Ozark aesthetic.
Stanislavskyâ€™s Method is an important part of her artistic process. Her most enduring aesthetic interests are the various, ever-changing, ephemeral energies surrounding figure and objects, or, the relation between humans and Earth-space. Anne lives outside the 'box' & makes art relatively free from irony and from the status quo, and in the hope that art makes for change.
