The Arts & Business Council of Greater Nashville, Blackbird Media, and F&M Bank have teamed up to present the Artist of the Week on The Nashville Sign. This week, 2018 Periscope alum Amanda Downs is featured!
Based in Nashville, TN, Amanda Downs is a self taught visual artist who began her artistic journey in March of 2017. She is inspired by women, nature, music and literature. She hopes to provide a diverse representation of black women while capturing the common traits among them such as strength, beauty, and confidence. Her goal is to create positive images that are uplifting and inspiring. She uses acrylic, and water color paint mediums. She started her practice to become more involved in her community and to express her passion for art and people. Her work has been exhibited in Jefferson Street Art Crawl at One Drop Ink, Tennessee Discovery Center, and Abrasive Media Gallery. Creative Legacy Art is Amanda’s online gallery and studio where you can purchase and view some of her work.
