Artist Talk: Amy Wynne
Creative Resilience: Strategies for Hope & Flow
April 29, 7:00-8:00PM
The ritual of making things on a daily basis can deepen the creative process and cultivate strength and momentum in challenging times. Artist Amy Wynne will speak about her evolution as a maker and the bravery she has built in the face of the unknown through her commitment to daily practice. Wynne will speak about her search for authentic expression while witnessing and interpreting the bittersweet beauty of everyday life. Her dance with ambition, distraction, risk taking and gentleness will resonate with so many of us as we search for ways to express truth through our work.

About Amy’s work… “I am curious about the liminal space between clearly perceived moments. The speed of our existence leaves us with fleeting glimpses of nature. Working from life deepens my sensory connection to the physical world. Working from memory allows details to fall away while the most essential elements arise, revealing the truth of a place…transcending physical appearance, communicating the unity of nature and human spirit.”Amy Wynne 2021 For more information please visit: www.amywynne.com
