5 x 5 Submission 48 - Amber Ray Anderson

Amber Ray Anderson
Amber Ray Anderson grew up in Longview, Washington, a small city on the Columbia river & Oregon boarder. The forestry & fishing industry destruction surrounding her would thematically inspire her creative output for years to come. Believing creative education to be a priority, Anderson was accepted and enrolled into undergraduate studies at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, Washington in 1998.
Amber Anderson was bestowed the Nellie Cornish Scholarship as a freshmen student, as well as the President’s Art Scholarship for the following three consecutive years given for academic achievement. Graduating from Cornish College of the Arts in 2002, Anderson currently holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a double major in sculpture and painting. During her undergraduate studies, Anderson apprenticed as a work study student performing fine art restoration at Eastlake Galleries in Seattle, Washington. Anderson was employed by Eastlake Galleries for nine years as head Objects Conservator. The combined background of art & art conservation led Anderson to complete a two year program in General & Organic Chemistry at North Seattle Community College, for which she holds a Certificate of Completion in Chemistry Sequence. Eastlake Galleries closed in February of 2009, & Amber Anderson immediately began her own private art conservation practice -Array Art Conservation, LLC.
During her time in Seattle Amber Anderson has been actively involved with the art community, having had several art exhibitions & commissions for private collectors. Anderson's recent exhibitions include “Fire in the Del” at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, & “P.Y.T.” at the now defunct Observatory Gallery. Anderson continually focuses upon her commitment for creating art, with her recently renewed endeavor in lithography print-making at Print Zero Studios in the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle, Washington.
