ABOUT THE CURATOR:
Amber Marie has been a creative all her life and an arts management professional for over 20 years. Garnering her own solo exhibitions and installations, she often turns her eye to opportunities for other artists, helping them achieve their goals to exhibit, sell, and connect with the community.
The opportunity to organize LGBTQIA+ exhibitions are particularly special to Amber Marie, since she sees them as opportunities to be “graceful disruptions” in conservative communities, such as Wyoming, they are the chance to challenge deeply-held beliefs about queer and peculiar people. She sees them as a true way to help those that fear or outright hostility to this group of people that they can see their humanity, connect through shared visual experiences, and realize the joy it is to have the people in their life.
