The Anza Civic Improvement League raffled off two fine pieces of Susan Eyer-Anderson original art as a fundraiser for the nonprofit organization, Wednesday, Dec. 20.
The two handsaw blades were illustrated with acrylic paints; the first, called “Cahuilla Rocks,” portrayed the boulders that can be seen at the Mountain Sky gas station on the Cahuilla Indian Reservation. The second saw, “Running Horses,” featured a band of wild mustangs racing across the prairie. The images were painted in Eyer-Anderson’s famously realistic and detailed style seen all over Anza.
“Cahuilla Rocks” was won by Vicki Cloud, and “Running Horses” was awarded to Alison Jordan. The winners were notified by phone of their prizes.
“ACIL would like to give a big thank you to Susan Eyer-Anderson for her beautiful artwork on two handsaws that she donated,” ACIL president Ken Ogren said. “We would like to congratulate the winners and thank everyone who bought raffle tickets for their support of the Little Red Schoolhouse and Minor Park. This is one way we are able to keep the park and our historical building in shape for all to use.”
Eyer-Anderson is well-known as the “Anza Phantom Artist” that created and secretly installed beautiful signs all over Anza earlier in 2017. The signs featured the town and street names, complete with equine, sunset and patriotic images. Her easy, detailed and colorful likenesses are familiar sights around town. Now a member of the Anza Valley Artists guild, she shows her fine acrylic Western-themed canvases and signed prints of those works at shows all over Southern California and beyond.
