Multiplicity: The many facets of Artist Amanda Dunbar

. . .a FLASH of BRILLIANT ENERGY sears across the canvas. . .


. . .emotion and intellect IGNITE THE SENSES. . .

Welcome to the UNIQUE world of AMANDA DUNBAR!

SpaceOnSpurgeon invites you to meet Amanda Dunbar at a special reception on Sunday, November 9, from noon to 3pm.

You may have seen Amanda as a Person of the Week on ABC World News finger painting with kids.

You may have seen her art splashed across riffing guitars at the Grammy awards for the MusiCares Foundation for Artists.

Amanda Dunbar is all these multiple facets: artist—teacher—humanitarian.

Amanda's art is exhibited in galleries and private collections across the country.

Amanda explores an idea that penetrates the heart of her canvas and creates a positive force. She is fearless in her aesthetic attack as brush and paint and texture swirl into sensuality and eventuality.

SpaceonSpurgeon reveals Amanda's adventurous works from provocative, raven-dark Brazilian Ringlets cascading down a young girl’s sinewy, muscular shape to geometric abstractions that zap across the canvas in Contain Your Enthusiasm.

Sexy and powerful, embrace the richness of genuine Swarovski Austrian crystals embedded in Amanda’s rock n roll art guitars. Cognac Leopard will attack and release your wild roots!

Amanda's art is grounded in the person and the person is original in mind and spirit—endearing and enduring. . .come and join us and you will see and feel it, too. . .

SpaceOnSpurgeon is located at 210 N. Spurgeon Street off of First Street, and is open by appointment. Visit the first Saturday from 6-9 pm of any month to coincide with the Artists Village Open House.
