Community Culture Night

Anna Arnold introduced:
Anna Arnold joins Art House Virtually to speak about her art, work, and life.
Cleveland born and bred, Arnold grew up with aunts and uncles living next door. At age seven, she wandered into her uncle’s attic and came upon a Dutch Masters cigar box full of paints and started painting by herself for hours on the porch. She knew almost instantly that she wanted to be an artist.
Her parents recognized her gift early and supported her as she made vibrant portraits, mixed media collages, and ceramics.
As a student at the CIA, where she focused hard on painting and making videos, the faculty encouraged her to pursue her art even when the road became bumpy. “It’s that belief in yourself that they instill in you, that when you come out of there, you will have some greatness,” she said.
Last year, Arnold’s painting “The Storyteller” was selected for exhibit at the Ohio Governor’s Residence in Columbus.
She has made murals as part of the Cleveland Museum of Art Community Arts Projects and was selected as one of the St. Clair Superior Development Corp.’s Year of the Rabbit project artists. Her work is in private and public collections that include the AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland, the Cleveland International Film Festival, TRW Inc., and Jones, Day, Reavis, and Pogue.
These days, though, Arnold focuses most of her creative energy on Wasmer. She sees her role as a facilitator, supporter, and promoter of the artists and provides them with the best possible experience to allow their work to shine.
