Collection Rotation: Anne Ray
Our regular feature, Collection Rotation. Each month someone special organizes a mini “exhibition” from our collection works online. Today, please welcome writer and editor Anne Ray.
For a variety of reasons — the holiday season, the state of the world, the recent arrival of my third child — I currently find myself drawn to works that amplify feelings of peace, calm, and joy. These are a few that do that for me.

Anne Ray is a San Francisco–based writer and editor. A native of Memphis, Tenn., she is a former member of the SFMOMA staff, and currently serves on the board of Southern Exposure. She lives in a 1906 earthquake shack with her husband, Michael, and their three little boys.
the clouds make me feel like being griped and torn violently apart by Jesuses’ finger nails, more so then the calm of one who merely as a philosopher of the last century said , siting undisturbed in a home occupying yourself with beautiful things, and so on, but in closing I see why nobody commented on this page. ALso, if Marden intended this reaction, he is more unexpected then I previously assumed. Thank you.
