We are delighted to share that this year’s Incrementum III, 9th Annual Art Auction Benefitting alley’s house is featuring two live artist paintings. Anne Royer and Jim Rizzi will be painting two live art pieces at the auction.
Anne Royer has lived in McKinney for over 15 years. She is an artist, art teacher, lecturer and writer on art history. Anne holds a fine arts degree from Austin College and three Master’s Degrees from Yale University in Religion and Visual Arts, East Asian Studies and the History of Art. She currently teaches art history at the Heard-Craig Center for the Arts, Collin College in the Seniors Active in Learning program, and fine art in her studio and at the McKinney Art House. Her work is shown at the Galleries at Midtown (Dallas) and at Orisons Fine Art Gallery (McKinney), where she also works as a liaison between the artists and the gallery.
Anne’s art focuses on color and composition, and encompasses a broad range of subject matter. To that end, she began the Arts and Music Guild, a non-profit designed to mentor young artists and musicians, and bring the creative process to the community in meaningful ways.
Jim Rizzi, or better known as JMR, has adapted a unique mixture of neo-abstract expressionism with hints of contemporary pop to create a style all its own. Originally hailing from Brooklyn, New York, JMR has grown up with the influences of street art and the established art world constantly around him. Through his own individual, hybrid street style, he has dedicated himself to helping art fit into the outside world.
