    Amy Hutto

    Amy Hutto is an award-winning acrylic artist best known for her colorful imagery of the world around her. A native Texan, Hutto’s vivid paintings are influenced by her life there as well as her time spent living in Colorado and now the Finger Lakes of New York. Her subjects; animals, landscapes, plant life, and abstracts among others, are rendered in acrylics, oils or mixed media and are brought to life with her distinctive personal style of using unique color palettes, multiple layers of texture and intriguing compositions. Of her art Hutto says, “Bold colors feel good to me, they have a vibrant spirit that speaks to me of the otherness of the world…a way it is felt, not seen.” Hutto’s work has been exhibited at such venues as the Yellowstone Art Museum, the Washington DC offices of both Colorado Senators, the Brownsville Museum of Fine Art, AnnMarie Sculpture Garden-a Smithsonian Affiliate, and is a part of the permanent collection of the Platte River Power Authority in Fort Collins, CO, and Rhino Marketing in Houston, TX among others. Hutto was recently interviewed for Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine on behalf of the National Association of Women Artists, a prestigious organization celebrating 132 years of honoring, promoting, and supporting women artists. She is also a member of the National Oil & Acrylic Painters Society, and the Arts Council of the Southern Finger Lakes. Amy Hutto holds a Bachelor of Science from Tarleton State University, as well as Elementary Education K-8 and All-Level K-12 Art Certification.

    When the choice had to be made which career path to set out on, the toss-up was between nursing school and art school. Nursing won out, but I kept drawing and painting throughout the years. I fell in love with water color a long time ago, and although I enjoy other mediums too, watercolor is still my medium of choice. I paint mostly landscapes, and through these try to express the love I have for nature.

    Color and negative space are probably the strongest forces driving Barbara's artwork.  Always experimenting and incorporating new media and techniques, her works are diverse yet there is a consistency in her use of color. "Transience intrigues me, and that is what I try to capture in my works with color and negative space: a sense of looking through or beyond time, another dimension or even an unknown." Overall, Barbara's works are small but filled with color and passion. There is a sense of controlled abandon, allowing things to happen yet with direction. "Chance.  And by chance I mean looking for the opening or opportunities in a work as it changes. That, for me, is when art becomes electric."

    There is beauty everywhere and I try to be open to see that.  A rusty truck or bones whitened on the ground can demonstrate the relationship of objects and colors, and can be beautiful.  I use many different media and methods to make my work including photography, acrylic fluid painting, drawing, and scratchboards.

    I am a glass flameworking professional with diverse experience in glass flameworking, teaching, and presenting. I have degrees in mechanical engineering and computer science, and have always loved glass. My major life change came when I had the great opportunity to work in Corning, NY and was "smitten" by glass. My first date with my husband was a hands-on open house at The Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, NY.  I left the "engineering-faith" so to speak to use the artistic side of my brain full time in 2006. I have taught over 10 years at The Corning Museum of Glass and local studios.  I have been a teaching assistant for world class glass artists such as Paul Stankard, Emilio Santini, Debbie Tarsitano, Loren Stump, etc. I have participated in juried shows and exhibits at the Glass Art Society Conference, West End Gallery, Clothesline, Arts in the Gardens, etc.  My work has been published in magazines such as: The Flow Magazine, LAMMAGA, The GlassBead Magazine, and the Canandaigua Magazine. I now have my own studio in Honeoye, NY (the lovely Finger Lakes region).
