True Blue Goods & Gifts is honored to host Omaha artist, Amy Haney. Please join us for an opening reception Friday, March 31st, from 6-8pm.

Amy's show entitled "Birds & Bugs" welcomes us into spring with her unique ability to capture creatures both above and below. Birds & Bugs will feature black and white linocut prints and watercolor paintings, as well as notecard card sets.

From the artist:

"Printmaking has been my medium of choice since 1994. For me, it has always been about experimentation, meditation through process, and reflection. The process of creating an image on the plate’s surface, manipulating it, mixing color and pulling a print is so methodical that I find these steps captivating. I have found such a connection to printmaking that I returned to school to study the history of printmaking. I enjoy looking closely at traditional printmaking through the development of inventions, movements and artistic influences. Understanding and studying the evolution of printmaking has inspired me in the studio and as a lifelong learner."

Amy teaches studio art at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Continuously wanting to learn and know more, she has a BFA, MFA and just received her MA in Art History. She has a studio at Hot Shops and offers printmaking workshops throughout the year.
