Anne Mulvihill has been a fulltime ceramicist since the mid-90s; she specializes in functional items made from porcelain. Anne began her career in Washington, D.C. where she studied at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, and was a studio potter and instructor at Hinkley Pottery. In 1999, she joined Kansas City’s Red Star Studios and began teaching at the K.C. Clay Guild. Anne is a member of the Clay Guild board and leads the Events & Workshops committee. During NCECA 2002, Anne had a solo exhibition at EGG Gallery in Kansas City’s Crossroads Arts District.
Currently, Anne's studio is based at Barbershop Gallery in Midtown Kansas City. Barbershop Gallery was established by Anne & John Mulvihill in June 2005. From 1955 through 2004, the property was utilized as a one room, one chair barbershop. In recognition of the property's unique history, the owners kept the Barbershop moniker for the artistic space. For several years, the gallery featured one-person exhibitions, showcasing emerging local artists — including numerous artists affiliated with the Kansas City Art Institute.
