under water

UPDATES by Amy Vidra

It’s been an exciting few weeks, a few openings, and new paintings in the studio.

Last night was the Magnum Opus 30 opening at Sacramento Fine Arts Center. It is a wonderful exhibit of many talented artists’ work. I’m honored to be part of this show. My piece, Transparency, won second place. This is one of my favorite pieces that i’ve done. It was the first painting I completed after my move to California last year, and for me, it was full of excitement, transition, and striving to be authentic in my new life.


Last week was the 7th Annual Open Fine Arts Competition at the Elk Grove Fine Arts Center. This show has a lot of variety and amazing art. My piece, Under Water, also took second place in the oil and acrylic category. This is also one of my favorite pieces, experimenting with layers and inks.
