The Art Gallery at United Zion Retirement Community, Lititz, is pleased to feature Amber Martin as February’s Artist of the Month.
Amber Martin, Pennsylvania native, attended the PA College of Art & Design (PCA&D) in downtown Lancaster where she received a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts Degree in May of 2013.
During the course of her undergraduate studies, Martin took a semester hiatus from PCA&D in 2009 to study art history and sculpture at Studio Art Centers International in Florence, Italy. Inspired by her initial trip overseas, Martin traveled back to Italy four more times through the Rome Art Program (RAP), twice to study ‘plein aire’ painting and drawing and twice as a member of the RAP faculty. In October of 2016, she accepted a position with RAP as the Program Manager. During the following summer while working abroad for RAP, Martin spent 99 days traveling throughout Italy, England and Iceland.
Recently, she has begun focusing on creating pet and animal portraits, which has been a passion of hers since a very young age. Her most recent pet commissions can be viewed at her website: www.ambermartinfineart.com. Martin currently lives and works in Central Pennsylvania. She will be visiting Rome once again during the summer.
Martin’s artwork will be on display and available for purchase throughout the month of February. For more information on the Art Gallery, please contact Alyssa Wojcik at firstname.lastname@example.org.
