Anna Wallace spent her first eighteen years in Durham, North Carolina. There, she attended and participated in many local arts, music, literary, and cultural events and was specifically involved with the Durham Arts Guild, the Hillsborough Arts Council, the Scrap Exchange, and the Nasher Museum. In 2013 she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Ceramics at the Cleveland Institute of Art in Cleveland, Ohio. During her four years in Cleveland, Anna stayed active in the arts community at the Institute and in the city. Anna also supplemented her education with classes at the Penland School of Craft and a trip to Paris and London on a traveling scholarship awarded from the Cleveland Institute of Art. Post-graduation Anna returned to Durham and threw herself back into the community, exhibiting with the Carrack Modern Art, Claymakers, The Scrap Exchange, and the Durham Art Guild’s Room 100, while working from her own home studio. This fall she will continue her education as an MFA candidate at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
