Linda Aman is an award-winning artist and art instructor who teaches throughout Idaho, Oregon, Washington, and beyond. Her goals include educating the general public through public speaking, studio interactions, videos, articles, teaching, and mentoring. To this end, she has taught over 3000 adults in classes and workshops, many of whom are now professional, award-winning artists themselves. The member of a number of arts organizations, her work can be seen in regional and national shows, in corporate settings, galleries, and private homes.
About her work, Ms Aman writes, “I create because it is what I do, it is who I am. I create works that interpret a thought or image with emotion, telling a story of the beauty I see, capturing the essence of nature.” Her paintings include glowing, colorful watercolor florals and abstract landforms filled with texture and earthy hues. Some of the paintings in this exhibit relate directly to Ms. Aman’s time as Artist in Residence for Yellowstone National Park in 2018.
She will be giving a free presentation about that experience, titled “The Yellowstone Story: The Essence of Yellowstone through an Artist’s View; Color, Composition and Conversations of Yellowstone” in the Blackrock Commons of the Oboler Library on Wednesday, September18, from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m.
The Oboler Library is located at 850 South 9th Avenue, on the corner of South 9th and Martin Luther King Jr. Way in Pocatello. For more information about art in the library, please contact Kristi at firstname.lastname@example.org or (208) 282-4073.
