Inspired by her Family, Jeweler Amy Ambroult Brings Her Life into her Art: Young Mother's New Work Offered by the Brookline Arts Center in December
(Brookline November 1, 2010) Amy Ambroult studied painting and graphic design when she was in college, but after a few years of being a new mother, she felt that her hands were forgetting what it felt like to do her own creative work. She turned to metals to define her vision while creating art that is wearable.
The artist says, "My pieces serve as personal decoration, but each one stands alone as a work of art." Ambroult's metal jewelry will be exhibited and available for purchase at the Brookline Arts Center's Crafts Showcase 2010 from December 2 through December 19, 2010. Admission to the Crafts Showcase is free.
"Amy Ambroult draws her inspiration from the natural beauty in New England. In fact, she's a rock climber, and likes to create works with the power and size that she associates with the region's granite boulders," says Crafts Showcase organizer Isabella Frost. "Her work is elegant, but rugged, it feels authentic and timeless in its quality."
Ambroult is based in Holbrook, Massachusetts and is representative of the nearly 100 artists whose work has been chosen by a jury for inclusion in the Crafts Showcase. More information on her work may be found at her website, http://www.agambroult.com or by calling the Brookline Arts Center at 617-566-5715.
The Crafts Showcase runs through December 2nd through December 19, 2010, at the Brookline Arts Center, located at 86 Monmouth Street, at the corner of St. Mary's Street, Brookline. The Crafts Showcase is open Thursdays from 12:00 noon to 8:00pm and Fridays through Sundays from 12:00 noon to 6:00pm.
