Visual Artist – Anne Hanley, batik artist
December Jazz!!! Rendezvous wants to help you relax and take a break from the rush of the holiday season while enjoying music by the Matt Ulery/Matt Shevitz Quartet!  Their music will be perfectly paired with the unique Batik art of Anne Hanley – her pieces perfectly reflect the colors and shifts that take place during the perfect jazz solo! This is a pairing not to be missed!
 Anne F Hanley is a professional Batik artist and painter from Wheaton, Illinois. Working from her Chicago based studio, Anne has mastered the art of Batik in her own way. Her colorful blend of watercolors and hot wax on a ricepaper surface is a unique alteration of the centuries old art form. Anne has been displaying and selling her work for several years in juried art fairs and exhibitions throughout the country. Anne was raised in a family of musicians where education in the classics and the discipline of practicing was the basis for improving her skills.
Her passion for community has led her to fundraisers and several public art projects over the years. Anne worked on collaborative projects and donations for The Center for Independent Learning’s annual fundraiser for Cerebral Palsy.  Her first public art project in 2004, Kars For Kids, benefited the Children’s Assistance Foundation, (ECAF), in Elmhurst, Illinois, this was followed by the completion of three different projects in 2006 for United Way of Naperville, Illinois. In 2011 her project for HCS Family Services, was displayed at the Oakbrook Shopping Center, Oakbrook, Illinois. Completed a project for the DuPage Children’s Museum’s 2013 Celebrity MASK Fundraiser, Naperville, Illinois. Recently completed a project for The Chicago Lighthouse Center for the Blind, 2018 Mag Mile Project.
A permanent collection of thirteen of Anne’s original paintings can be seen at Edward Hospital’s Plainfield Cancer Center in Plainfield, Illinois, and at Edward Hospital’s Cancer Center in Naperville, Illinois.  Several of Anne’s Prints were purchased by The College Of DuPage, Glen Ellyn, Illinois, and hang at College of DuPage Center for Health and Science.

Rendezvous Arts is a chamber music and visual arts series started by several of the musicians of the Lake Forest Symphony. When the orchestra sadly folded, they wanted to find a way to continue to play for the friends that they had made from the Symphony’s audience – and so the plan to continue the orchestra’s Salon Series chamber music program was born.
