Amy's drawing on exhibit in Cambridge and Open Studios in Brookline

Hello all!

I'm super happy to have one of my drawings in the show "Personal Geographies" at Chandler Gallery/Maud Morgan Arts 20 Sacramento Street, Cambridge MA.

This piece is from Day 13 of my ongoing 2018 Drawing-a-Day project. Hoping you can stop by and check it out.  Gallery hours are 10-5:30 and this exhibit is is up until April 20th.

If you'd like to meet me at the gallery let me know. I'll also be showing more from this series during Brookline Open Studios on April 28th and 29th. Hours 1-5 in the AWA studio on 45 Harvard Street.

Cheers,
Amy

Thank you to the Art with Amy community near and far!

During the Fall we had a spontaneous month long art sale to benefit our fellow Americans in Puerto Rico. I was blown away by so much generosity both near and far! We raised $6,300 through art sales! Thank you to all the artists who contributed their art! Thank you to all of you who bought art! Most of the funds raised went to Chef Jose Andreas' amazing organization World Central Kitchen. We were also lucky to meet people traveling to Puerto Rico who hand delivered solar radios and first aid kits we purchased. Jose Ortiz- Luaces delivered the solar radios. Bianca Bonilla travelled home to Puerto Rico bringing the kits with her. Here are some pictures from her visit. 

Winter session begins Tuesday January 2nd!
