Amy Kaufman (MFA Alum) Exhibition Opening Tonight, Saturday July 18

Amy Kaufman will be exhibiting recent work at the Left Bank Gallery in Wellfleet, MA.

"I keep coming back to pears and flowers in my art. I enjoy reinventing the brushstrokes and color in my work, expressing them in new ways each time I paint. Having that one pear surrounded by gestures, colors, textures and patterns, or having a grouping of pears all relating to each other, creates a complex and interesting composition. The flowers always bring me happiness as they give me an emotional feeling of life in its glory - whether it is a bouquet or a field of flowers. With the layering and mixed media in my art, you see more as you keep looking. Each work is one-of-a-kind original." - Amy Kaufman
