About the Artist

Ann Hunt Currier was born in 1956 in Bayshore, NY and has been a fine art color photographer since she received her BFA from Purchase College in 1980. She earned an MFA in Creative Art from Hunter College in 1989. She has exhibited her work at a number of venues, most notably at the Neuberger Museum, at the Knitting Factory in conjunction with the music of Vito Ricci, at the Charles Bank Gallery in New York and most recently in Open(C)all at the BRIC House in Brooklyn. A solo show at Suffolk County Community College featured her Still Life Constructions and her April-Isolated series. In 2008 a photograph of hers was exhibited on the International Space Station in the first ever art exhibition in space.

 

A teacher of fine art and photography, Currier taught at LaGuardia High School of Music and Art for 28 years and established the photography program there. She continues to teach at James Baldwin HS and at LaGuardia assisting students afterschool in refining their art portfolios. She has taught at Brooklyn College and the Maine Photographic Workshops.

 

Currier is a 1995 Fellow in Photography of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation and a 2003 recipient of a SURDNA Arts Teachers Fellowship, which allowed her to travel and photograph in Peru. In 2002, she was awarded a commission for a public art project for Kings County Hospital Center for which she created photographic assemblages, combining her own images with vintage hospital photographs.

 

She lives with her husband, Douglas, in Brooklyn; they have two daughters, a granddaughter and a grandson: Joanna, Katherine, CC and Ryan.
