Shop on the Square Artist Spotlight: Ann Chahbandour

Ann is a Philadelphia sculptor that has exhibited extensively in the US and abroad. Her latest exhibitions include a show at the Michener Art Museum reviewed by Inquirer critic, Edward Sozanski: “Chahbandour does transform her sources imaginatively and with puckish spirit. Her facile command of diverse materials creates rich environments that effectually enhance the narratives and give the works a satisfying wholeness.”

She is currently transitioning to paint and has created some vibrant, exciting pieces; one of which will be up for auction at Shop on the Square’s Preview Party on Monday, December 3rd.   Join us for an exclusive evening of great design, delicious food, and a little friendly competition at the auction. Preview and Cocktail Reception: 5:30pm, Silent Auction: 5:30 to7:45pm, Live Auction: 7pm.

This archival digital print is made from one of a series of 13 paintings she created in gauche. The paintings in this series are inspired by Audubon prints of birds and quadrupeds. The original compositions have been retained but each painting has been reinterpreted with contemporary colors and designs in order to provide the individual creatures with more illustrative narratives.
