ALFA Gallery Set up


Well it’s official! I am all set up at the Fort Saskatchewan ALFA Gallery.

It feels like it’s been a long time coming but it’s here.

Here’s a sneak peak of the set up.

So if you’re in the area please check it out and sign the guestbook.

Also, all works on exhibit are available for sale.

I’ll be posting more pictures and video and my interview with the local radio station I did yesterday are coming so stay tune!

Cheers,

Amanda

Block Print Bonanza 


As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve been working away on a new series of Block Prints inspired by themes and imagery in the Bible. I’ve been focusing primarily on animals and plants of significance. 

So far I have done the classic Lion and Lamb, Eden tree Pomegrantes, Soul Mates, Sparrow and a Honey Bee. 

Here’s a peak at these new blocks and two test print and reveals.

You can see lots more of these by following me on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/milke.amanda/

I haven’t decided what to do next so it will be a surprise for both of us ūüėČ

Once the print run is done I’ll be listing the prints for sale in my etsy shop and by direct message. What’s your favorite so far?

Cheers!

90 second lime light- Art in the community of Fort Saskatchewan 


A while back I got a random call one afternoon from Diane Yanch, the Culture & Historic Precinct Supervisor of the city telling me that Shaw was going to be doing a piece on our city, Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta and asked if I’d mind being interviewed to discuss Art and community.

At the time I remember thinking “sure no prob” I’ve been interviewed on radio and in print before…no biggie…it wasn’t until I told my husband that it dawned on me Shaw is a TV station Haha.

Needless to say being a newbie to TV I had a few butterflies floating about but I made out ok. I loaded up 3 paintings for  my background including my latest Tree of Knowledge piece that I discussed last post, Despair an Acrylic 24″ x 36″ painting and a untitled poured abstract 2′ x 4′ and made my way down to set up.

Once we figured out how to attach a mic to a shrug and conceal wires we were golden. Though not shown I did start off the interview joking that “I paint so I don’t have to talk much” lol with much chopping and cropping later below is my 90 second contribution to this piece on Art in the community.
