Walking down Baker Street has become more interesting

Cranbrook Arts’ feature artist is making the window display full of colour and style. Local artist Anne Aitken Anderson is the highlight for the month of February.

Aitken Anderson is a long time Elk Valley resident and emergent artist, who loves to experiment with different mediums and loosely capture the emotion of the beautiful surrounding landscape.

Aitken Anderson grew up on the East Coast of Canada in a home surrounded by artists and eccentrics. She is strongly influenced by the wackiness of her childhood home where her mother painted a giant colourful mural of “Noah’s Ark” and all the animals across the front of the family home.

Aitken Anderson has been involved with the Cranbrook and District Arts Council for many years. She is a volunteer and an ongoing contributing artist to the Gift Shop.

Bill McColl, one of the Cranbrook and District Art Councils board members, has watched Aitken Anderson grow as an artist over the years. Each time a new piece of hers comes in the store, he states how extremely impressed he is with her increased proficiency in such a diverse spectrum of mediums.

Her exhibit is in the window for the month of February at Cranbrook Arts Gallery Gift Shop at 1013 Baker Street.

You can also see many of her pieces on Cranbrook Arts social media platforms and @artscranbrook on Instagram.
