Welcome new member!

Greg Amanti was born in New York’s Hudson River Valley in 1971. He attended the Art Institute of Seattle with a focus in commercial photography. He has been included in two group shows at Mussi Artworks gallery in Berkeley Ca. and the Fort Collins Museum of Contemporary Art. His work has been featured in Photographers Forum and won “Photographers Forum Award of Excellence”. He currently works and resides in Denver Co. with one wife, two cats and loads of string.

Greg Amanti is a master mold maker, stone carver, and critically acclaimed artist and artisan. He has worked and trained at the two largest foundries on both coasts, and assisted some of the most well-known contemporary artists, including Kiki Smith. His own work has garnered much attention, as well, including an exhibition at the Fort Collins Museum of Contemporary Art, the Hinterland Art Space, The Miami Photo Salon during Art Basel, The Workhouse and The Redline Art Center “Between the Medium Seeing Photographically” during the Month of Photography curated by Mark Sink. Greg was also awarded the “Photographers Forum Award of
Excellence”.

Additionally Greg has collaborated with the BND DSGN Conference 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 creating and installing exhibits in the LibertyTheater and was one of four judges for the fire pit sculpture contest at Oregon Winterfest 2018. Most recently, Greg won Grand Prize for the NYC for Photographic Art show “Water”, juried by curator and photographer Mark Sink. “Water” was scheduled to debut in NYC in March, but was cancelled due to Covid-19. In October 2021 Greg exhibited “Sentinels” (an art installation) at the Pinckney Art Gallery in Bend, Or. Greg Amanti’s work often begins with a misinterpretation of sights and sounds. His series encompass many different materials, the majority of his work is built on a foundation of string and plaster. Greg starts with a sketch and then builds the illustration into a three dimensional representation.

His hope is to create a visceral landscape that reveals itself a little at a time, in which the viewer is immersed. Presenting not only a photograph of the familiar, but a collection of visual experiences and memory.
