Art Enables is thrilled to announce that The Library of Congress has acquired 6 works by resident artist and Studio Assistant Toni Lane! Toni’s works were among the very first of what will be a collection of COVID-19-related artwork acquisitions by the Library. The Art Enables community was very excited to see Toni and her COVID-19-themed works highlighted on NBC4 News, and in a thoughtful article on the Library of Congress blog.
"To my eyes, Toni Lane’s COVID-19 drawings exemplify the superpower artists have to witness, envision, and tell vital stories that can invite us to care and reflect." - curator Katherine Blood of the Library of Congress.
Jacqueline Coleman is naturally a quiet and reserved person, but her artwork speaks volumes. She paints with very precise brush strokes and her use of color is bold, beautiful, and amazing. As an artist, she does so many things well and seeks to constantly challenge herself – painting landscapes, structures and buildings, animals, and abstracts. Jacqueline enjoys working with a variety of materials and mediums.
