Anne Harris

"Who is this artist who haunts us with her own image?"   
--Alison Ferris, 2013 (Anne Harris: Phantasmatical Self Portraits, 2013)

Anne Harris is known for variations on self-portraiture. These have uncanny presence, but eschew likeness. She has exhibited her paintings and drawings at venues ranging from Alexandre Gallery (NYC), DC Moore Gallery (NYC), Nielsen Gallery (Boston) and Corbett vs. Dempsey (Chicago), to the National Portrait Gallery at the Smithsonian Institute, The Portland Museum of Art, the California Center for Contemporary Art and the North Dakota Museum of Art. Her work is in such public collections as The Fogg Museum at Harvard, The Yale University Art Gallery and The New York Public Library. Grants and awards received include a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship and an NEA Individual Artists Fellowship. 

Harris is also Chair of the Exhibition Committee for the Riverside Arts Center, and has curated numerous shows there. She is also the originator of The Mind’s I. This is   a traveling expanding drawing conversation--Harris draws with a broad range of artists to investigate the complexities of self-perception. The Mind's I Archive now holds nearly a thousand drawings made by hundreds of artists across the country.
