Participating artists were given identical postcards and asked to create a unique piece for the show inspired by the theme “wanderlust”. Travel via boat, plane, foot, and yes, even jellyfish to your favorite destination in this eclectic and imaginative exhibition!

  • Amy Minchew currently resides in Atlanta Georgia where she has been diligently working on creating her own brand of beautifully painted images. Using all different types of media, she adds in elements and influential symbols of her past and present to each piece. Beyond the aesthetics of her artwork, Amy brings an overwhelming sense of passion to her paintings. Touching on themes of love, death, conflict and duality, Amy’s art tells stories of strength and hope through emotion and sentiment with her sensual beauties and signature doe-eyed women.

    Born in August, 1986, from childhood to adulthood, Atlanta-based artist Amy Katherine Minchew was rarely ever spotted without a sketchbook in hand. Her early homeschool experience with its flexibility and versatility allowed her the freedom to explore her creativity under no confines or limitations. Amy is best known for her portrayal of the variation in eye color known as Heterochromia Iridum which she was drawn to from an early age due to her father and sister both having partial Heterochromia. Her work is also often recognized by her signature, abstract mandala designs, melancholic expressions, and her distinctive curvaceous, soft women.
