UE Peterson Gallery Exhibit to Feature Work of Artist Amy Musia
Posted: Monday, December 21, 2015
Evansville, Indiana, artist Amy Musia will be exhibiting her work in the University of Evansville’s Melvin Peterson Gallery from January 11 through January 30. Musia will also give a public lecture followed by a reception on January 14, at 6:30 p.m., in the gallery. The Melvin Peterson Gallery is located at 1935 Lincoln Avenue, on the corner of Lincoln and Weinbach Avenues in Evansville.
Musia’s exhibit is titled “The Art of Amy Musia: An Inspired Journey,” and will feature her sculptures and photography. Musia works as a sculptor, designer and photographer specializing in site specific works of art for healthcare, corporate, public and private spaces.
She earned her BFA degree from the University of North Texas and worked as an art director for production companies that produced magic tricks, body puppets, marionettes, as well as stage productions for amusement parks, including Six Flags, Ponchatrian, and King’s Island, as well as the Guiness Book of World Records. Currently she is a studio artist and teaches sculpture and painting at UE. She is a member of such area boards as the Public Arts Commission and Westside Improvement Association and is a member of UE Friends of Art.
“My overall approach for all works that I create is that of a naturalist,” says Musia. “Pieces are primarily organic yet architectural enveloped with symbolism.”
