Arlington, VA – In the Focus Gallery this month, Gallery Underground presents “How Are You Doing Today?” an exhibit of works by Anne Chandra. The artist is a painter of 20 years experience and art professor whose credentials include faculty posts at the Corcoran College of Art + Design and the Art Institute of Washington. Further details on the artist can be found at www.annechandra.com

The artist says, “When you ask someone, “How are you doing today?” no one ever says, “I’m
not fine.” Rarely does anyone speak the truth. Everyone is doing great. Yet each one of us has gone through a series of emotions during the day. Who hasn’t cried, laughed, screamed or longed secretly?

“To me, painting is about the expression of heartfelt emotions without reservation. As an artist, I feel the triumph of technology has rendered us into mechanical robots or what is called inhuman. Our existence would be meaningless without feelings and passion. I attempt to portray my emotions through the forces of color and nature.”
