Empowering Women Paintings, Works by Amanda Mazur
Gallery Opening on First Friday, May 5, 5-8 PM
Exhibiting in the Blackfoot Communications Gallery through end of May
The ZACC is proud to present ‘Empowering Women Paintings’, works by Amanda Mazur, in our Blackfoot Communications Gallery for the month of May, opening First Friday, May 5 from 5 to 8 PM.
This is a collection of my first acrylic paintings. Earlier paintings capture my love of the world's beauty through the landscape while more recent paintings focus on women. Throughout my art, I try to speak to the resilience & strength present in times of struggle with a theme of strong women. I aim to share emotions of joy, pain, and fear in my art while showing the growth that comes with experiencing these feelings that many of us share. During this time, I hope that these paintings serve as a reminder that no one is alone in what they are feeling. Many of these paintings are inspired by the strong women in my life that surround me and continuously support me.
Amanda Mazur has been painting since she was nine, first with watercolors and then exploring acrylics. She is currently a senior at Sentinel High School and will pursue a B.F.A. in Studio art as well as a B.A. in Business in the fall. Mazur enjoys volunteering with young art students in Lolo and at the ZACC. Their constant optimism and creativity increase her appreciation for art every week. Further in the future, Mazur hopes to work as an Art Director for small businesses or become an art teacher, while continuing to create her own art and painting style.
