About

Amanda Millet-Sorsa is an artist and arts worker, born in Washington D.C. and currently is based in New York City. Amanda recently completed a collaborative project with natural dye artist Maki Teshima: “Up in the Air” (2020). This cross-disciplinary work focused on painting, sculpture, sound and video using biodegradable materials and colors evoking the four seasons and a Japanese-Finnish cultural exchange. It was exhibited at Far Rockaway Beach, Queens, NY and presented through SHIM Art Network on Artsy, the Finlandia Foundation NY Chapter and NY Textile Month with support from the Queens Council on the Arts New Work Grant. A selection of 10 out of 78 handmade tarot cards, 6 digital photo prints, an edition card deck, and postcards will be displayed in the window of "The Unoppressive Non-Imperialist Bargain Bookstore”, an independent bookstore standing on Carmine Street in the West Village for the past 30 years. The exhibition will be up through summer 2021 and accompanied by three public events. Amanda has exhibited in New York at The Socrates Sculpture Park (2016), Governor’s Island, NY (2016), The Flux Factory (2016), [x] Brooklyn Brush Gallery (2016), Art-In-Buildings Time Equities Inc.

She holds an M.F.A from the New York Studio School (2013) and B.A. from Brandeis University (2009). In 2013, she completed a printmaking residency at Proyecto Ace in Buenos Aires, Argentina exploring the relationships between street art, cave paintings, and murals. Recently, she has become a contributor to The Brooklyn Rail and participates actively in the NY arts community by writing exhibition reviews. Since 2011, Amanda works as a consultant on projects focused on the preservation of an artist’s legacy through collections and archives management, exhibitions, research, and catalogue raisonné.
