Watercolor works by Amy Ackerman.  

Kingston Artist Collective, 63 Broadway Kingston, NY

Opening Reception:  March 2, 2019 5-7pm,

Show runs thru March 28, 2019

Amy Ackerman has lived her life surrounded by art. She has lived through and with her artwork, blending her paint and life together in her career. Amy’s paintings are a unique blend of emotion, passion, and mystery. There is magic in her paintings.

A natural painter, Amy understands the processes of paint. She lets the piece take her to wherever it goes, letting the piece decides its outcome. Ackerman looks to bring her talents to children’s book illustration to inspire imaginative growth. With her skill set, it’s more than possible.  The show will run through March 28, 2019.
