Raised on a family farm in southeast Ohio, Amelia Schroeder grew with knowledge of life and death and the ways of nature woven into her. Having traveled the far reaches of the states, climbed mountains, kayaked open waters and seen the majestic sights, she is still moved by the small details, everyday things, the often overlooked. Schroeder is a Marietta College graduate with a BA in Studio Art and has attended workshops including the New York Studio School. In spite of frequent moves, she has participated in national and international competitions and has continued to show work in the Mid-Ohio Valley.
Both shows open at ArtWalk on March 17th from 5pm -8pm with live music by Tofujitsu.
