She explores ideas of connection, disruption, fragility and tension in various forms and materials.

Her work is in the permanent collections of the Walker Art Center and Minneapolis Institute of Art. She currently resides in Winona.
This exhibition explores how materials, form and image can speak of vulnerability and strength. Incorporating found objects and diverse materials, paper is explored as subject and object for its skin-like physicality and its ability to be an active repository of place, time and touch. The resulting assemblages are part original and part ready-made.
This activity is made possible through a grant from the Southern Minnesota Arts Council in cooperation with a private foundation.
Anne George is a fiscal year 2021 recipient of a Creative Support for Individuals grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage board.
The ROOTED program at Rochester Art Center is open to artists living and working in the eleven counties surrounding Rochester and showcases the most innovative and talented artists from the region. For artists who have received artist grants from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council (SEMAC), Rochester Art Center provides gallery space to showcase the art by the grantee. Art Center curatorial staff provides grant application support, studio visits and exhibition space, but do not select the artists, who are chosen by SEMAC jury. ROOTED exemplifies the commitment of RAC to be a central hub for art made in Southeastern Minnesota.
