Terra Incognita: Forty Years of Anne Slaughter, 1966-2006 March 3 - April 29, 2006 (Main and Dové Galleries, Les Yeux du Monde) Few artists can say that they have made work for 40 years and experienced first hand World War II. Anne Slaughter claims both, and Second Street is thrilled to present a 40 year retrospective of her compelling art and biography. Her work is familiar to Charlottesville, the place she has called home since 1957, and yet no major show has ever been mounted to document her art. This two-site exhibition seeks to establish the breadth and evolution of this unique artist, presenting mixed media paintings, sculpture, works on paper, and prints made since 1966. Born in Brussels in 1934, Slaughter was six when the Germans marched into Belgium. Her life and travels around the world find expression in her landscapes, abstractions, and later installation and word pieces. Each body of work in her development will be represented, including brand new pieces, all touching upon themes constant in her art: the passage of time, the love of the natural world, and the desire to evoke profound feelings through surface materiality. The walls of bombed out buildings, seascapes of Belgium and landscapes of pastoral Virginia, and the earth in all its connotations-all these experiences inform Slaughter, whose tactile expressionism seeks to communicate "our need for silence and a sense of the infinite mystery that is still part of the human condition."
