By imagining obscure narratives that embrace paradoxes, Anne Buckwalter paintings delve into questions about the female body, intimacy, and gender roles.

Anne Buckwalter is an artist and local of Philadelphia. She explores female identity and the coexistence of contradictory elements. Inspired by the folk art traditions of her Pennsylvania Dutch heritage, her work arranges disparate objects in mysterious rooms and ambiguous spaces. 


Anne is the recipient of a 2020-2021 Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant, a 2020 Idea Fund Grant, and a 2016 Joan Mitchell Foundation Emerging Artist Grant. She has been an artist-in-residence at the Galveston Artist Residency, Vermont Studio Center, Hewnoaks Artist Colony, and Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity. Her exhibition history includes Rachel Uffner Gallery, New York, NY; Monya Rowe Gallery, New York, NY; Friends Indeed, San Francisco, CA; Portland Museum of Art, Portland, ME; Woodmere Art Museum, Philadelphia, PA; Boston University Gallery, Boston, MA; and others. Her writing has appeared in McSweeney’s Internet Tendency and Points In Case, and her paintings have been featured in New American Paintings, The Jealous Curator, and Artillery Magazine. She is represented by Pentimenti Gallery in Philadelphia, PA.
