Have you met our new-as-of-this-summer gallery director @amygraham711 ? Amy Graham studied painting, music and environmental design at the University of Pennsylvania. During her tenure at Penn, she studied visual art at R. I. S. D. and modern dance at Harvard University. After graduating from Penn, Amy worked in outdoor schools in Texas and California, and studied dance at Smith College and in Senegal, West Africa. Amy returned to the Boston area to teach and coach, traveling extensively during the summer months. While working on a sheep farm in New Zealand, Amy met her husband Mel, a Chicago native. They married, and Amy enrolled in the University of Chicago's M. F. A. Painting program, graduating in 2000. The Grahams moved back to the East Coast, where Amy continued to teach and make art while starting their family. In 2009, Amy, Mel and their three young children traveled overseas to live and teach in Seoul, Korea. Amy has served as a guest lecturer at three schools, and served as the Director of the R. Lehman Art Center in MA. She now serves as director of three galleries here at Endicott Center for the Arts. • • • #endicottarts #endicottcollege #thisisendicott #manninencenterforthearts #gallerydirector #artgallery #artist #collegeartgallery #mfa #visualart #painting #northshorema #northshoremagazine #risd #contemporaryart #pizzaboxart #collageart
