First Friday in June: The Art of Amy Lind

We are so excited to be bringing you the work of Amy Lind for June's First Friday on Broughton - next week! She has some really stellar work and we are all a little jealous of her talent. Her paintings and drawings can be seen at The Paris Market On June 1st! So as your bopping down Broughton Street for some evening shopping, be sure to hop on in and check out her beautiful paintings.

A little bit about Amy Lind:
Amy Lind received a BFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design and additional instruction from the Florence Academy of Art and the Bay Area Classical Artist Atelier.  Her work has garnered many accolades, including honorable mentions in the prestigious Art Renewal Center's International Salon and the Portrait Society of America's Member's Only Competition.  In addition to being named Southwest Art magazine's “Artist to Watch: the Editor's Choice for Up-and-Coming Talent”, her paintings have graced the cover of top national publications American Art Collector and Art Calendar.  Lind's paintings can also be found published in the New York Times Bestselling children's book "Marcel the Shell With Shoes On: Things About Me". (This blows me away - I remember seeing the hiliarious Marcel on you-tube a few years ago so the fact that Amy illustrated of the book that followed and that she is lives in Savannah and showing at our store no less is doubly awesome) Here's a shot from the book: 
Amy's work is represented across the country by galleries in Charleston, SC, Santa Barbara, CA and Scottsdale, AZ.  On top of gallery work, she is sought out by many for her uncanny ability to capture the likeness and essence of those she paints while infusing each canvas with captivating qualities of light and color.  Her work hangs in both public and private collections around the world.
Here's a peek at some of what you will see next Friday:

White, 34" x 24", Oil on linen, $4,300


He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not..., 44" x 33"
Oil on linen, $6,800

Amy, we are gushing over this! And I am sensing an appreciation for Hopper somewhere.  Hope everyone can come on out next Friday, June 1st and see more of Amy's fabulous work! I'm really excited for this.
