Angelina Coco
March Artist of the Month
Written by Nan Richmond



Recently I had the pleasure of visiting Ann at her home studio and reminiscing about her art.  I was impressed with the body of her work and with her recollection of the inspiration behind it.
 
Ann, a self- taught artist, became interested in painting after attending the outdoor art festivals at the Endicott Estate during the early 90’s. She joined the Dedham Art Association soon after and explored painting in various mediums. She attributes much of her influence to the workshops she attended by such notables as Nancy Howell, Peter Spataro and Ron Brake. Ann’s pastel color palette and gentle compositions describe much of her art. She was awarded The Committees Choice Award at the State House Arts Award Ceremony in 2008.
 
Her commitment to the association was strongly demonstrated by serving on the board for over a decade and holding the office of president for nine years. She was instrumental in coordinating exciting and educational programs for the organization during her tenure as president.
 
Ann’s painting style and steady devotion to her art is reflected in all her work. With the support of her husband Sal and her family, Ann continues to create soft and beautiful compositions. Reminiscent of her muse, Claude Monet, Ann has shared an original plein air piece entitled “Early Rock Garden.”
