Anna Held Audette began her career as a printmaker and later evolved into a painter.  She taught at Southern Connecticut State University for many years.  Her works comment on the melancholy beauty found in relics of our industrial past.  "The relics remind us that, in our rapidly changing world, the triumphs of technology are just a moment away from obsolescence.  Yet these remains of collapsed power have a strength, grace and sadness that is both eloquent and impenetrable.  Transfigured by time and light, which render the ordinary extraordinary, they form a visual requiem for the industrial age."
