“We are very excited to be showing Amy Lyn’s first show, let alone a solo show.” Said Cathy Vincevic, Director of the Gordon-Nash Library and Nash Gallery, “This work is amazing!”

This collection reflects several years of inspiration and creativity for this eco-friendly artisan. Colors explode on recycled and salvaged canvases, paper, and fabric bleeding into the oil spill spreading across blacktop, swimming beneath the lily pads floating on a frog pond and spinning and twirling under party streamers. Emotion is the undercurrent that drives Amy Lyn’s brush interweaving words, names and phrases gnawing at the corners of her memory as she buries them beneath many layers of paint erasing the negative to create bright, bold, colorful paintings that exude happy, positive energy.

In her most recent work she has combined her love of painting and sewing. She painted on pieces of recycled and salvaged fabric, then turned those fabric pieces into on one of a kind, 3-dimensional, cartoon style, animal art. “They just make my heart happy looking at them,” said Amy Lyn “and I hope they bring a smile to the face of everyone who visit.”

Color Calamity will be on display through the end of July 2014 at The Gordon-Nash Library 69 Main Street in New Hampton pieces are located in both the gallery downstairs and the glass display cases on the first floor of the library. All the paintings and handmade items on display are available for purchase.
