The Prizm Art Fair is a collaborative effort between Mikhaile Solomon, a designer and arts advocate, and Marie Vickles, an independent curator and arts educator. Solomon created Prizm to expand the spectrum of international artists from the African Diaspora and promote the work of artists of color.

Amber Robles-Gordon's work in Prizm is from a project entitled "Heal Thyself", and was motivated by a painful back injury she incurred while in graduate school. While recovering from her injury, she often reflected upon the spiritual, emotional and physical layers that make up every human being. Both pieces represent those layers by using a variety of recyclable materials (glass, fabric, tiles, etc.).

Robles-Gordon is a Howard University alumnus with over fifteen years of exhibiting and art educational experience. She has been commissioned by the Smithsonian Anacostia Museum and WETA Television to teach, give commentary and present about her artwork. She has also served as President, Vice President and exhibitions coordinator of the Black Artists of DC organization.

Closer to home, Robles-Gordon's artwork is currently on display as part of the Against The Bias exhibition at the Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery (1632 U Street, NW) until December 21, 2013.
