Born in Ohio (1983) Anneliis Beadnell began her love for art in her youth through attending art classes at the Cleveland Museum of Art.

Becoming an art enthusiast felt instinctual. Her growing fascination for the arts, innovation and culture led her to study art history at Kent State University.  There Anneliis worked in the School of Art Gallery installing MFA exhibitions and cataloging Kent’s collection of Nigerian Art and American prints. “I remember when I was working through photographing the flat files and coming upon Robert Smithson’s original sketches of Partially Burried Woodshed from 1970, which was when my parents were attending school at Kent. Then knowing what he was exploring with this work, the filling of mines and my grandfather was a coal miner, something hit full circle. Art has amazing capabilities.”

In 2008 she completed her MA at Sotheby’s Institute of Art where she wrote her thesis, Troubles and Triumphs of the Estonian Graafika Artist.  Anneliis worked as the interim director for Jack the Pelican Presents Gallery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, ’08-’09 and for  iCI (Independent Curators International) as grants manager, ’09.  She  was the co-founder and curator for Latatara.org, with artists Jaanika Peerna and Leevi Ernits.  Latatara, is an open online platform, where everyday spoken words become triggers for artistic interpretation of the Estonian language. The first exhibition of this collective was exhibited at the New York Estonian House, March 27th, 2010 and was covered on Estonian State TV and Free Estonian Word.

In 2010,  Anneliis has been asked by cultural Irish Producer Turlough McConnell and Quinnipiac Univeristy to manage the production an exhibition surrounding the University’s permanent collection An Gorta Mor dedicated to Ireland’s Potato Famine.  Ireland’s Great Hunger opened May 20th, 2010 at the Irish Consulate 345 Park Ave.

Currently working as the Associate Director of P.P.O.W gallery, she resides in Brooklyn where she has been active in the artist community, collaborating with various galleries and artist organizations through exhibitions and events. At P.P.O.W she works closely with co-owners Wendy Olsoff and Penny Pilkington to organize exhibitions and fairs with artists: Karen Arm, Dotty Attie, Sandow Birk, Melanie Bonajo, George Boorujy, Judy Fox, Ben Gocker, Julie Heffernan, Teun Hocks, Timothy Horn, Ellen Kooi, Portia Munson, Sarah Oppenheimer, Adam Putnam, Hunter Reynolds, Jessica Rohrer, Carolee Schneemann, Bill Smith, Jessica Stoller, Suzanne Treister, Martha Wilson, Thomas Woodruff and the estates of David Wojnarowicz and Martin Wong.

Most recently she co-curated the exhibition “EarthWORKS: Ten artists on land and industry” with Stuart Morrison at P.P.O.W in the summer of 2012 and “Presto Magic: Langdon Graves, Siamon Chow and Rob Fisher” at Project 308 at 156.
