This Month in the Gallery:

Gallery Exhibit: February 2024
Paintings by Amanda Hulbert

Artist Statement: Abstract paint pouring, with its planned spontaneity, mirrors life’s unpredictable dance, where carefully orchestrated moments flow seamlessly into the unexpected to create a beautiful tapestry. I use acrylic paint and additives applied directly to the canvas to provide a mindful escape from the busyness of life. Each piece is meant to be interpreted by the viewer to find the feeling they need in the shapes that playfully emerge and flow from one another. 

Artist Bio: Amanda Hulbert is an acrylic abstract artist based in Olean, New York. Since 2022, she has been primarily creating paint pours, and experimenting with oils and mixed media. Amanda has participated in juried shows, won first place at the Colden Art Festival in 2023, and had her first solo exhibition at the Olean Public Library in February 2024.
