Christopher Amend's Biography:
Chris Amend is an artist and teacher. Born in Superior, Wyoming, in 1950, he was raised and educated in Worland. After earning a BFA and an MFA in Art from the University of Wyoming, he taught briefly at Bowling Green State University in Ohio. Since 1978 he has made his home in Gillette, where he taught at Stocktrail Elementary, Recluse School, and Campbell County High School. He retired from full-time teaching in 2007, but continues to serve on the Wyoming Arts Council Artist Roster as a teaching artist.
Since discovering, at the age of six, his innate ability to draw, Chris has devoted his life to the quest for visual expression. Rooted in classical drawing, his work seeks to find universal truths by delving deeply into the idiosyncratically personal realms of his own inner vision.
Chris will speak about his art and perform excerpts of his book at 6:15 pm. This exhibit will be installed in the Heritage Center Gallery from
Monday, October 14, 2013, through Friday, November 15, 2013.
