On Friday night, January 20th a terrible fire claimed the home and studio of Grand Isle Art Works (GIAW), artist, Anne Zolotas.  Anne has been with the gallery since we opened on July 10, 2010.  Anne is best known for her driftwood and wire sculptures.  She creates full size horses, herons, dogs, water birds and so much more.  She owns Good Hope Farm which is also the home for Champlain Adapted Mount Program (CHAMP) – a horse riding program for individuals with challenges.  Anne’s love of animals comes through with every piece she creates.  Just the right piece of driftwood to impart the liveliness of the animal being constructed.  Anne’s studio and home went up in flames.

On January 28, 2017, we honored Anne at our 6th Annual Meet the Artist, Groundhog Day Gala.  Her remaining art work is  displayed prominently in the gallery.  All proceeds from sales of her work will go to Anne.  In addition, we have added a donate button to our website, as well as a collection jar on the counter in the gallery.  

With each $5.00 donation, your name will be added to the drawing!  Send Anne a message with your donation.
