Anne Kesler Shields is Winston-Salem’s most accomplished living, native-born artist. Having maintained an active art career since she was in her 20s, Shields turned 80 this year, and Salem College is one of three institutions that will honor her with retrospective exhibitions in the fall. The Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art will present a broad overview of her career to open in mid-September, and other examples of her work will go on view soon afterward at Wake Forest University’s Hanes Art Gallery. The Shields exhibition at Salem will include a selection of her portraits, large-scale collage installations and related works.
