Abstract Artist Anne Steinhauer to Speak at May Brown Bag

Mesquite Local News – May 01, 2013

Special to the MLN

Anne Steinhauer, who has taken the professional name A. Stein, will be speaking at the May Brown Bag at the Virgin Valley Art Gallery. Now residing in Las Vegas, she is an accomplished abstract artist.

Although Stein first became interested in art at an early age, it wasn’t her only interest. She also studied classical ballet while growing up. There she learned about discipline and determination. She says it “helped when I went ‘back to school.’”… Read article

New residents find ways to make mark, contribute to community


7922499-0-4Las Vegas has always been a place for outsiders, for those looking to strike it big, make a name for themselves or simply start a new life…

Anne Stein said every artist, including her, is influenced by the place they live, and when she made Las Vegas home in January, she said it had an effect on her art.

Formerly of El Paso, Texas, Stein said she would paint images of the Virgin of Guadalupe or the sun-soaked Mount Cristo Rey and its cross-bearing peak.

“I traded in my Mount Cristo for the Stratosphere,” she said as she pointed out a recent work titled “Fire ‘N Dice.”

When her husband, an administrator at Del Sol Hospital in El Paso, told her he had an opportunity to take the same job at Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center in Las Vegas, she said she was all for it.

The couple visited the downtown area on a recruiting trip and fell in love with the area, Stein said. “We’re real urban dwellers,” she said. “A person has to have a certain joie de vivre to live downtown.”

After the two made the move, Stein said, it took a while for her to settle in – that is, until she found The Arts Factory in the heart of Las Vegas’ 18b Arts District… Read article

Anne Steinhauer loves many things about her historic home in Sunset Heights.
She can sip tea outside her covered patio and enjoy the views of the neighborhood and Downtown. During holidays, she and her husband, Mark, feel as if they have front-row seats to fireworks shows in the area.
Or she can admire how the cantilever stairs in the entryway look as if they have no support but then lead visitors upstairs to a wraparound balcony area.
And of course, there are numerous details — like the beveled glass doors and the original bronzed lighting fixtures — that always draw compliments… Read article

A. Stein’s new show this month at the International Museum of Art will be one of her biggest.

And her last. In El Paso, anyway.

She’s moving to Las Vegas at the end of the year, so today’s reception from 2 to 4 p.m. at the International Museum of Art will be a little different and probably a little more emotional.

“It’ll be kind of like a going-away party,” she said.

The show, “Concerning Abstract Art, Part 2,” opened Thursday and will be up through Aug. 28. It’s her reward for winning Best of Show in the “Best of the Border” exhibit there in February.

It runs concurrently with “Best of the Border, Part 2, 2011,” which features new works by local artists Bob Adams, Holly Cox, Marge Gianelli, Pat Olchefski-Winston and Krystyna Robbins.

When Stein — whose real name is Anne Steinhauer — isn’t creating one of her vividly colorful paintings, the Williamsburg, Va., native is the business manager for her husband, Mark Steinhauer. He’ll leave his position as medical director of rehabilitation for Del Sol Medical Center to take a similar post with Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center in Las Vegas… Read article
