[12.15.17] BEHIND THE SCENES
Greetings everyone! I just wanted to take the time to share with you that all is well and active at Amy Archambault Studio. I have been missing in action lately merely due to some fantastic changes happening behind the scenes. I recently moved to Connecticut which has allowed my family and I to acquire more space and land, thus a fabulously large home studio! I am really excited about the build-out (which is nearing completion) and future work to be generated in this space. I look forward to sharing new small sculptural works next month in a group show at Boston Sculptors Gallery. In addition to the new space, I am navigating the newest shared role of artist and mother. I have purposefully slowed down to a pace that will allow me to focus on my solo exhibition at Boston Sculptors Gallery next September, 2018. I want this new work (made in a new space) to transform my practice. I am itching to take risks, learn new processes and embrace the experiences around me. More to come as I hit the ground running this month! Thank you for your continued support.

The Boston Globe on the Isles Arts Initiative. Thank you Cate McQuaid: "Amy Archambault's delightful sculpture "Traverse", located in a dark corner near a window overlooking the harbor, looks like a catamaran Rube Goldberg might have designed - function pivoting toward absurdity. It could be a nutty, patched-together escape vessel for a prisoner."
