Anna Patalano is a visual artist, master teacher, curator, and managing director of a 105-year old, artist-member organization in Greenwich, CT, the Greenwich Art Society. The founding members of the Greenwich Art Society consisted of significant artists in the Cos Cob Colony of Artists, an important arm of the American Impressionist movement. Through both her teaching career and working with a non-profit art center, Anna has advocated for practicing artists and students. Her knowledge and experience has helped her produce innovative programming, exhibition, and career opportunities for hundreds of artists, students, and teachers. Several of the programs that she has created over the last 14 years have been possible through her fundraising efforts in both the public and private sectors, including state funding through CT Arts and private grants through the Ford Foundation and the Rudin Family Foundation. She has worked with private banks and investment funds such as Bessemer Trust and Northern Trust in support of community art exhibitions as well as with local hospitals. She has also worked with curators from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney, MOMA, the Guggenheim, and the Jewish Museum when they served as jurors for competitive exhibition opportunities for artists. Anna resides in Bronxville, NY and continues to nurture her own studio practice while supporting other artists as they evolve in their development.
