Anna Rac: Art in a Key of Life Exhibition

When:  January 19 – March 2, 2019​
Where:  The Naples Art Association, 585 Park Street in Naples

Anna Rac is an abstract expressionist painter who explores the connection between music and painting. Having started playing the piano at the age of four-years-old, she graduated with a degree in music from the University of Illinois, and now uses classical music to inspire her artwork. She describes her painting process as a totally immersive and emotional experience. From music to canvas, her approach is spontaneous and is often met with new and unexpected results. As a result, her works are lyrical, dynamic, and multilayered—much like the music from which she draws inspiration. Rac uses a variety of media and tools to create her compositions.

Born in Poland, she now lives in Naples. She is an active member of the Naples Art Association, Florida Artists Group and Naples Art District.  Rac’s paintings can be found in galleries in Florida, as well as many private collections in the United States and abroad.
