The Kaneff Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)3 foundation established by the Kaneff family in 2013 to fund a variety of charities and organizations which are particularly resonant to their lives and to the life of their community.


Between Two Worlds: Annette Nancarrow in Mexico and America
The Kaneff Foundation was honored to underwrite this beautiful exhibit, which opened at the Taubman Museum in Roanoke, VA on September 13, 2014 and closed on January 17, 2015, and featured over 40 paintings and sculptures from this remarkably gifted artist. Nancarrow, who found a second home and family in Mexico, produced numerous works of art there, frequently in collaboration with such luminaries as Diego Rivera, Jose Clemente Orozco, and David Alfaro Siqueiros.

Nancarrow was the maternal grandmother of Mitchell Kaneff, so the sponsoring of this exceptional exhibition at the illustrious Taubman Museum was an especially proud undertaking for The Kaneff Foundation.
