Corning Fine Arts Features Amy Haney
Corning Fine Arts is proud to present the work of Amy Haney in the exhibition Maritime.
The exhibition continues through Thursday September 30, 2010
Making artworks based on sea life over the past year has been educational and continuously inspiring. I find a delicacy and strength in fragile earth collectibles. Like any Midwesterner, I have collected and marveled over the varieties of shells found at visited beaches. There is a duality of power and weakness in these creatures. Like a portrait of the sea, I’m researching, collecting and documenting its existence.
Amy Haney received her BFA from the Ringling School of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida and her MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. Both of her degrees are specifically in printmaking. She teaches Watercolor and Drawing at the University of Nebraska at Omaha and Drawing and Printmaking at the Metropolitan Community College. She also works out of her studio at Hot Shops Art Center in downtown Omaha and is the Assistant Director at the Omaha Printmakers Guild in the same building.
