Join 45° for the First Friday ArtWalk on May 7 from 5-8 p.m. featuring mixed media artist and storyteller, Amelia Furman!
Amelia Furman loves telling stories with paper and paint. Her paintings are a combination of paper collage, text and thin layers of acrylic paint. Using a selection of documents, vintage images, handwritten text, and symbols associated with the painted image, Amelia reminds the viewer that places and objects have many layers of meaning, memory, and beauty.
Good Word Collection by Amelia Fuman. Here is a snippet, in Amelia’s words, about the collection. “It seemed that everywhere I looked, I was finding new words that reminded me of what I was actually after in this life. Joy, hope, peace. Care, faith, abide, and listen. All these words point to the good we so desperately seek after. We want to see these attributes in ourselves and in the people we love because we know, deep down, that THESE things are lasting things, while other things that often hold our attention like to-do lists, money, and toys will fade away. I believe that God made us to strive after valuable things like this.”
