More about: ANN LEGGETT

Ann Leggett. Born in Manhattan and living in Queens since the 1970s, Leggett has

lived in cultures as diverse as Mexico, Europe, and Libya. She presently is

 studying the culture of Japan.


Reminiscent of Vermeer, her darkly rich paintings record how life looks today. Her

work glorifies what we see as mundane, capturing contemporary scenes that

appear encapsulated in Old World form. Her involvement with Japanese art

 influences her aesthetic with Eastern color and form.


In several new paintings we are drawn into anonymous faces in the United States

 and Japan lost in conversation on mobile phones. Many paintings borrow from

 traditional stories while adding modern twists. "Makibashira" is a painting based

 upon a 10th century Japanese novel, the Tale of Genji. Yet we see a present-day

 plain black plastic garbage bag in the background, painted in painstaking detail.

 Many of her portraits -are of local Long Island City people and capture the truth

 and realness of her subjects. Often their character leaps out with bravado over the

 most routine events. Her sensitivity to the nuances of the human condition can't

 help but grab our attention. Leggett is recording the present as a realist, but one

 who wants to insert a feeling and view that is uniquely her own.


Leggett has held solo exhibitions at the National Arts Club, New York; Avery Hall at

 Columbia University; the Edward Merrin Gallery, New York; Princeton University;

 C.G. Rein Gallery, Scottsdale Arizona; Alan-Mayhew Gallery, Martha's Vineyard;

 Stuart Brent, Chicago; Wabash College, Norfolk Academy; Onslow County, North

 Carolina, Arts Council; Block Island, Rhode Island, Historical Society; the Union

 League Club, New York, and others. Group shows include The Fitzgerald Gallery,

 New York; the National Arts Club; the Museum of the City of New York; Hermine

Merel Smith Fine Arts, West Tisbury, Massachusetts: the Grand Central Gallery

 and the Hammond Museum, North Salem, New York


 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ann Leggett was born in New York in 1941 and began a serious study of drawing and painting at an early age. Her first teacher was her mother, Barbara Vaughan Leggett, an accomplished illustrator. She attended Solebury School, Sarah Lawrence College and the Art Students League, where she studied with Robert Beverly Hale, and principally with Frank Mason, to whom she was apprenticed for several years.

She was fortunate to receive a strong foundation in the basic principles of drawing from the model, the use of light and shade, and the preparations of materials: disciplines seldom taught in that part of the 20th Century.

During the early 60’s, her projects included a series of portraits of poets. In 1967 she moved to Chiapas, Mexico, where she lived and painted for more than 8 years in a Tzotzil-speaking community. There she studied her neighbors’ language and culture, and learned many things from them.

Since the late 70’s, she has lived in Long Island City, NY, where she is slowly renovating an old house and tending a small garden. Her travels have taken her to several countries in Europe and North Africa. Major commissions include a portrait of retiring Fire Chief Arnold Fischer for the West Tisbury, MA. town hall, and a large painting of seven horsemen for the Permanent Mission of Libya to the UN. She now spends part of the year in Kyoto, Japan.

Solo shows: National Arts Club, New York (three times); Avery Hall at Columbia University; Edward Merrin Gallery, New York; Princeton University, New Jersey (twice); C.G. Rein Gallery, Scottsdale, AZ; Alan-Mayhew Gallery, Martha’s Vineyard, MA (three times); Stuart Brent Gallery, Chicago, IL (twice); Wabash College, Indianapolis, IN; Norfolk Academy, Norfolk, VA (twice); Onslow County, NC Arts Council; Block Island, RI Historical Society; the Union League Club, NY; C. G. Lucas Gallery, Indianapolis, IN; and the Art-o-Mat Gallery, Long Island City, NY.

Group shows include: The Fitzgerald Gallery, New York; The Art Students League, New York; The National Arts Club, New York; The Museum of the City of New York; the Field Gallery, Martha’s Vineyard, MA; the Grand Central Gallery, NY; Hermine Merel Smith Fine Arts, Martha’s Vineyard, MA; and The Hammond Museum, North Salem, NY.

Her awards include: Five first prizes at the Martha’s Vineyard Agricultural Society Cattle Show and Fair; The Montague Award for Pastel; and the Bruce Stevenson Award for Portrait.

Ann Leggett is currently represented by Fielder and Fielder, Chilmark, MA; and C. G. Lucas Gallery, Indianapolis, IN

Some quotations from critics:

Cue Magazine reviewing the show “Seven American Realists” at Grand Central Gallery: “The work of Ann Leggett is most promising. She has a sensitive and compassionate eye.”

New York Magazine commenting on the show “Painting New York” at the Museum of the City of New York: “Ann Leggett has wreathed the habitués of Chick’s Bar in the robust umber shades of Franz Hals and the Dutch genre painters.” 

Southwest Art Magazine: “The keen eye of Ann Leggett surveys the human landscape. The individual and universal are so engagingly intermingled that the paintings can be read on a myriad of levels.”

The Grapevine: “Art it is, high art with a flair and skill rarely seen.”

The Vineyard Gazette: “The still-lifes she is famous for- lovely small pictures of fruits, vegetables, eggs, flowers, fish and kitchen utensils.”

Norfolk (Virginia) Pilot and Ledger-Star: “Leggett is a people painter. Her studies combined with subtle single-source lighting lend a dramatic air to the most routine events. The dynamism she injects into each work add a life measure that is as contemporary as tomorrow.”

Procession with Conch Shell Horns, 2006 Oil by Ann Leggett
Many of her portraits -are of local Long Island City people

 leaps out with bravado over the most routine events. Her sensitivity to the

 nuances of the human condition can't help but grab our attention. Leggett is
