Meet Ann Chaskalson: This Year’s Dania Beach Arts and Seafood Celebration’s Center Stage Artist

Dania Beach, FL- Ann Chaskalson has graciously contributed her time in creating the unique and vibrant art that is used for this year’s Third Annual Dania Beach Arts and Seafood Celebration (DBASC). Her 2015 Dania Beach poster will be unveiled tomorrow at the event‘s Kick Off party at Frost Park. Chaskalson creates original and commissioned paintings, drawings, sculptures and mixed media projects; including murals, portraits, and abstract schemes. Through a radically singular approach, Chaskalson uses ideas that are exceptionally integrated into the composition process of her work. “I constantly try to transfer my spirit and creative energy into each individual project to ensure that my one-of-a-kind piece is just as much my clients as it is my own,” states Chaskalson.

Chaskalson studied fine arts in New Orleans, earning her BFA at Tulane University. Since graduating, she has worked in hand engraving, jewelry design, bronze castings, large scale murals, faux finishes, and most recently, commissioned mixed media projects and event paintings, like the one for this year’s DBASC. Ann Chaskalson currently lives and works in Fort Lauderdale.
“A laborer creates with his hands. A craftsman creates with his hands and his head. And an artist creates with his hands, his head and his heart.’ Annie is an extremely talented artist. Her professionalism and creativity were evident in every aspect of the project for our office. We were immensely satisfied with
the outcome of the mural that was painted. Thank you for all of your beautiful and hard work.” States John S. Bush CPA PA & Staff, Plantation, FL.
