Public radio station Florida’s 89.1 WUFT-FM is celebrating its 31st broadcast anniversary with a limited edition poster featuring work by critically acclaimed artist photographer Anna Tomczak. Tomczak is dedicated to using different techniques to alter photos through Polaroid transfer and integrate photographs into various materials. The featured work, Blue Door, Cadaqués, originally a 20” x 24” Polaroid, is now a 24” x 30“ poster available for a pledge of $100 during the October membership campaign from Oct. 8 – 19. Pledges can be made online at wuft.org or by calling 1-800-338-9838.

Anna’s large format dye-infusion transfer photographs are widely exhibited and are in museum, university, private and corporate collections including: The Florida Gulf Coast Museum of Art, The Norton Museum of Art, The Polk Museum of Art, City of Orlando Public Art Collection, Deland Museum of Art, The Brooklyn Museum of Art, The Harn Museum of Art, UNCC Charlotte – The Cone Foundation, Sony Latin-America, McGraw-Hill, NYC and the Polaroid Corporate Art Collection, Waltham, Mass.

Currently her large-format photographic prints of antiques and plants are on display at the Appleton Museum of Art in Ocala. The show “FLORAda and Flowing Waters: the Art of Mark Messersmith,” Margaret Ross Tolbert and Anna Tomczak, features lush and beautiful portraits of natural Florida as interpreted by these three artists. The show continues through Nov. 4.

Tomczak hosts workshops throughout Florida in various museums, universities and studio classrooms. She also travels to Italy and Spain to present her work in alternative processes and to teach. Tomczak has received various honors including the Florida Individual Artist Fellowship and Career Enhancement Grant; Polaroid Artist Support Program Grant; and the Loft Nota Bene Artists Residency, Spain.
