Amy Boone-McCreesh

Amy Boone-McCreesh creates multi-media artwork that addresses the clash between handmade and technical processes and challenges notions of visual taste. A decorative and maximal aesthetic often fuels her visual vocabulary. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Pennsylvania College of Art and Design (2007) and a Masters of Fine Arts from Towson University in Maryland (2010). Amy completed a two-year fellowship for emerging artists with Hamiltonian Gallery in Washington DC (2014), where she exhibited and was included in Scope, Miami and (e)merge DC art fairs (2012,2013). Her work has also been included in exhibitions across the country including a site-specific installation at Mixed Greens (NY, New York, 2015), Transmitter Gallery (Brooklyn, NY, 2015), Transformer Gallery (Washington DC, 2015), Dickinson College visiting artist and exhibition (Carlisle, PA 2015), and completed a collaborative site-specific public installation at School 33 in Baltimore, MD (2014) funded by the Rauschenberg Foundation Grant awarded to the non-profit. Recent collections include the Department of State, U.S. Consulate in Monterrey, Mexico (Art in Embassies, 2013). Recent publications and features include New American Paintings (issues 106 and 118) and Handmade Life, published by Thames and Hudson (2016). Amy was previously adjunct faculty at Maryland Institute College of Art and is currently a visiting assistant professor at Dickinson College.
