An active member of the Phoenix, Arizona art scene since 1982, Annie Lopez has consistently created new bodies of narrative work exploring a variety of subjects. Her art reflects her experiences through the use of family photographs, vintage “found” photos, personal letters and stories. She is most known for her use of cyanotype, an archival photographic printing process. Lopez engages the viewer with photographs, prints, storytelling and dresses made of paper which often make poignant statements with a sense of humor.

She has exhibited her work in numerous venues across the nation, including the Smithsonian, the National Museum of Mexican Art in Chicago, the Museum of Fine Arts in Santa Fe, Shelburne Museum in Vermont, and the Worcester Art Museum in Massachusetts. She was selected to represent Arizona in the exhibition, “Paper Routes-Women To Watch 2020” at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C. Her work is in the collection of the Phoenix Art Museum; Weatherspoon Art Museum in North Carolina; Arizona State University Museum; The Tucson Museum of Art; The National Hispanic Cultural Center in New Mexico; and the cities of Phoenix, Tempe and Glendale, Arizona. For seventeen years, Lopez was a member of the nationally recognized Chicano arts organization, Movimiento Artistico del Rio Salado (MARS). She has received a number of awards for her work, including a Governor’s Arts Award and Mayor’s Arts Award and in 2021, was honored with a Congressional Commendation.
