Artists Reception: Amy Kollar Anderson

Please join us at Gem City Catfe for a FREE artist reception event on Wednesday February 28th from 6-8pm. We will be celebrating the works of our first gallery resident, Amy Kollar Anderson. Light snacks will be available upstairs, and our full espresso bar will open downstairs for all of your coffee and tea needs. 

Amy Kollar Anderson creates surreal narrative paintings inspired by natural forms, decorative arts and her love of animals. Her work has been shown internationally and featured in the publication, Imagine the Imagination: New Visions of Surrealism. Anderson was awarded three of the ReImagining Works commissions for the Dayton Metro Library in 2014-17 and the Montgomery County Artist Fellowship Grant in 2007. 

She received her B.F.A. from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and a Master of Humanities, with a focus in Fine Arts, from Wright State University.

Amy Kollar Anderson lives with her husband and their three cats in the birthplace of aviation, Dayton, Ohio. Until recently, she was the Gallery Coordinator for the Rosewood Gallery, but left that position to pursue her art career full-time.
