“Despite It All, The Sun Still Does Shine” by Amy Herrmann
Amy Herrmann’s new exhibition stems from her obsession of the ever-changing sky and light found in Kansas. She’s drawn to the dilapidation of both man made objects and the natural world, exploring what hides beneath layers of rust, bark and weeds. The pieces selected for this exhibition center around a childlike curiosity of the unknown and what lies beneath these surfaces. Amy received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Kansas State University.
