Cover Art & Artist

“Lunch at the Art Museum” is a painting by Silverton artist, Ann Altman. In this painting, she makes a statement about the place of art in our lives. Two women eat a sophisticated lunch while ignoring a painting representing life and death—a heart-felt rendering from an artists soul—on the wall behind them.

By stripping images of detail, Ann attempts to portray the essence of the object/idea as she perceives it. Intense color and boldly defined shapes are hallmarks of her style.

Ann Altman’s work has been shown throughout the northwest, and has been published on cards, calendars, bookcovers and t-shirts. In her hometown of Silverton, she is a member of Lunaria Gallery. Her husband is a violin bowmaker and they have a 13 year old son.
