Anne Spurgeon is an interdisciplinary artist working in Columbus, Ohio. Questions about transformation reoccur in her creative practice. Her involvement began through performance, from playing guitar on stage, to creating private video performances about identity and the sense of the public and private self. In the past few years her focus has moved away from the personal consciousness of the body, to the transformation of compositional process and 2D/3D materials.

Spurgeon has exhibited nationally and internationally, including work in exhibitions at ISE Cultural Foundation (New York, NY), Exit Art (New York, NY), Artist Space (New York, NY), Riffe Gallery, (Columbus, OH), and The Wexner Center for the Arts (Columbus, OH). She is a recipient of a professional artist individual grant from the Greater Columbus Arts Council, a collective artists grant from The Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, The Austrian Cultural Forum, and the Waskowmium. Her work has been reviewed in publications such as The New York Times, The New York Times blog, and Artnet News. She holds a BFA from The Ohio State University and a MFA from the School of Visual Arts.


Spurgeon’s passion for community and engagement includes over nineteen years of experience in classroom, museum, and non-profit settings with a wide range of participants. These include The Museum of Modern Art (New York, NY), The Noguchi Museum (Long Island City, NY), Socrates Sculpture Park (Long Island City, NY), Eckford Street Studio (Brooklyn, NY), Columbus Museum of Art (Columbus, OH), Columbus Jewish Day School (Columbus, OH), and Columbus City Schools (Columbus, OH).
