Stop in to see new work by Amanda Jorgenson during September 2018 Ballard Night Out.
Amanda M Jorgenson is a Natural Science Illustrator, whose art focuses both on the familiar and elusive flora and fauna found in the Pacific Northwest.
Amanda's earliest art education took place in an Inupiaq village called Brevig Mission in Northwest Alaska. There she was educated by Inupiaq carvers, painters and drawers who told her the stories behind every element of our natural world – and their influence on the Inupiaq culture - which would find their way into the artistic renderings. Close proximity to creatures and nature provided Amanda with background knowledge in the natural sciences, knowing Native artists provided an example on storytelling through visual art, which she has followed over the years.
Amanda's art will be on display September 20th - October 16th.
