Visual mysteries of an American era
As a product of the 60”s, artist Annette Rawlings associated with many of the actors, rock stars, writers and innovators who changed the course of American culture David Crosby, Patti Smith, Tennessee Williams and Timothy Leary, just to name a few. Through experiences with these and other prominent people, Annette became caught up in a creative wave that was greatly influenced by the colors and cultural atmosphere of Miami. The culmination of this creativity is seen in her art and elucidated in her book. Her art reflects such experiences as spending a year in the jungles of Central America and living a year at the Plaza Hotel in New York City. Readers will share the anguish and joys as well as the simplicity and complexity that are portrayed in her art, which has been displayed in such places as the Miami Art Museum, Art Basel, Virginia Miller Galleries and the Louvre in Paris.
