Landings, mixed media work by Amy E. Bartell
The artistic journey of Amy Bartell began some 30 years ago as a student on the shores of Lake Ontario. It was on the campus of SUNY Oswego that she was introduced to all things “art” and the mixed media approach to her art that she employs today. Eventually Amy would return to the Oswego campus where she currently teaches graphic design and illustration.
It's with this backdrop that Gallery 54, here, has invited Amy to be only its fifth Featured Guest Artist of the 2015 season. Her show “Landings”, open Friday, September 4 from 5 – 8 pm and runs through September 29. Amy will showcase her series of “intimate and introspective bird portraits”. Her mixed media paintings employ the use of gouache, a thick, opaque watercolor medium, as well as pencil and more traditional watercolors.
Amy, who owns AE Originals, is also Assistant Gallery Director at SUNY Oswego. Her month-long exhibit at Gallery 54 will include original images as well as prints and notecards, all of which will be available for purchase.
