North Gate Vineyard Artist-in-Residence Program

Anne Stine Newly Appointed as Artist-in-Residence Purcellville, Virginia

June 18, 2018

North Gate Vineyard is pleased to announce the appointment of Anne Stine as the program’s newest Artist-in-Residence. Anne will be hosting a public reception showing her work entitled ‘Living Water’ at North Gate Vineyard on Sunday, July 8th, from 3PM to 5PM. Her art will be on display through October 1st, 2018.

On exhibit will be a collection of Anne’s encaustic mixed media paintings centered around the theme of water and its ever-changing moods captured through movement, color and texture. Anne concentrates primarily on the ancient wax based medium of encaustic paint into which she incorporates oils, pigmented shellac, vintage papers, textiles and salvaged found objects. The manipulation of the fluidity of the wax allows her to evoke a realistic element as she captures the beauty of nature using vivid color, rich texture and multiple transparent layers of wax.

Here are a few examples of the work that will be included in the collection ranging from sizes 8″x8″ to 48″x48″ .


A native Virginian, Anne began painting at a young age and developed a love of working with a variety of media. After a career in Arts Marketing, her passion for painting led her to leave a conventional career and open her first creative business, Anne Stine Decorative Painting in 1999. For many years, she delighted residential and commercial clients with her murals until 2014, when she shifted her focus to original art work. In her inspirational blog, Anne encourages others to pursue their creative passions no matter their age or artistic abilities.

Anne’s work has been exhibited at: Sichuan Fine Arts Institute, Chongqing, China; Gross-Downing Cultural Arts Center, Newport News, VA; AiM Gallery, Middleburg, Va.; Tryst Gallery, Leesburg, Va.; The Gateway Gallery, Round Hill, Va; 8 Chains Winery, Purcellville, VA; Franklin Arts Center, Purcellville, VA; Harvest Ball Art Show, Salamander Resort, Middleburg, VA 2016; and several local boutiques. She lives in Purcellville, Virginia, with her husband and three children where she works and teaches from her home studio.

“My art focuses on the emotional essence of nature and allows the viewer to slow down, take in the view, and reconnect with their inner self and the natural world,” states Anne.

The North Gate Vineyard Artist-in-Residence program was created to support local artists by providing a venue to show their artwork in a public, formal setting. The program also provides a facility for the artists to conduct other art-related activities such as educational seminars, instructional classes, or in-depth lectures on their artwork or creative process. Displaying their work in such a way provides flexibility for the artist to work at and achieve certain goals they may have in their profession.

North Gate Vineyard hours are Thursday – Monday, 11 am – 6 pm.
