Pierce Galleries of Nantucket is a 2013 gallery winner of Best of The Cape & Island, Reader's Choice Awards.

Pierce Galleries is proud to represent the extraordinary floral works by pleinaire painter Kathy Anderson.

Kathy Anderson’s paintings of fauna and flora are some of the finest representations of flowers in America. With a vast knowledge of how best to draw and design sumptuous subjects, this multi-award winner  agilely interweaves vibrant colors in a spontaneous exuberant manner, while at the same time delicate sensitive passages intermingle to bring her subjects to life.

 In 2001, Anderson joined a group of paintings and was taught by the renowned artist Richard Schmid. This opportunity renewed and revitalized her work and began a period of intense focus and rapid growth.  Painting with Schmid and his wife Nancy Guzik’s group known at the Putney Painters for over a decade has provided invaluable knowledge, support and inspiration.

Anderson has an intimate relationship with flowers, gardens and nature. She is an avid gardener and spends hours studying the growth, development and natural beauty of flowers in bloom.  Painting outdoors, she admits, “I view the world with a painter’s eye, finding paintings in all of my everyday experiences and travels.” 

Anderson is a member of the National Arts Club (NYC); the Salmagundi Club (NYC); Oil painters of America; Allied Artists of American (NYC), Connecticut Watercolor Society (CT); Putney Painters (VT) and the Rocky Mountain Plein Air Painters.     

Her numerous awards included the Impressionist Award of Excellence, Oil Painters of American National Juried Exhibition (2013); Art Renewal Center Salon Competition (2013); Western Art Collector Award of Excellence, Rocky Mountain Plein Air Painters (2012); President’s Award, Salmagundi Club, NY (2012); International Museum of Contemporary Masters of Fine Art, TX (2012) Salon Inter-national; National Arts Club Members Show, House of Hydenryk Award (2012); Salmagundi Club, Harmer Smith SCNY Award (2011);  National Arts Club, President’s Award (2011); American Art Invitational, Saks Galleries Southwest Art Magazine, Award of Excellence (2011); Alden Bryan Memorial First Place, Salmagundi Club (2010); Margery Soroka Memorial Award, Salmagundi Club, First Prize (2010) and many more awards.
