Bio:

Mrs. Amy d. Herzel has exhibited work for the past twenty years. Her drawings and prints have been shown in Texas, Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, California, Ohio, Pennsylvania and soon Korea. She trained as a painter and printmaker at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and went on to receive her M.Ed. in Art Education at the Tyler School of Art.

She is a multi-disciplinary visual artist, designer, educator and writer.  She identifies as a very American middle class, middle age, married mother of two. In addition, as a Korean American Adoptee raised in New York and now raising her sons in rural Southwest Virginia and with a husband in Afghanistan, she manages the American maelstrom with as much grace, humor and optimism as possible.  When all else fails, her Art is her maxim and the golden thread in this maze of absurdity called life. She currently lives and works in Blue Ridge, Virginia.

Reflections, Musings, Outrage, and Bits of Pseudo Pompous life.

Free online Creative Arts and Mediation workshops hosted by the Gide Foundation . Every Sunday at 4pm EST. Join through Zoom link found on ADHerzel's FB Event Page.
This exhibition is a joint effort between the Moss Center and the Blacksburg Regional Art Association in conjunction with the Fine Art Center of the New River Valley in Pulaski and the Floyd Center for the Arts. Every two years the show changes from one of these organizations to the next. This marks the first time the biennial has been hosted by the spectacular Moss Center and the first biennial in Blacksburg since 2013 at Perspective Gallery. Sixty-four artists from 21 different towns or cities will be exhibiting in the three galleries of the center. These artists were selected from among 389 entries forwarded to the juror.
"Entering Amy Herzel’s gallery I was transfixed. Her works are airy, or even aerie—a secluded and isolated place high up in the sky."
Please join us for the opening reception of “Gold & Desire – a Solo Exhibition of works by Amy D. Herzel” at the Cerulean Arts Gallery & Studio on April 7, 2018 from 2pm-5pm.
