The Glen Echo Park Partnership is pleased to present Amanda Spaid: Natural Wonders. This exhibition features Spaid’s intricate drawings on wood, highlighting birds that can be found in the DC area--from spectacular and elusive migrants like the Baltimore Oriole and the Scarlet Tanager, birds of prey such as the Peregrine Falcon and Eastern Screech Owl, to backyard favorites such as the Cardinal and Ruby-Throated Hummingbird. She uses the wood grain in a creative way; whether it is the design of the background, or the deciding factor on which bird goes on that particular wood piece.
A Maryland native, Spaid attended the School of Art and Design at Montgomery College in Silver Spring (formerly the Maryland College of Art and Design), and later the Columbus College of Art and Design in Ohio, where she earned her Bachelor’s in Illustration. Spaid specializes in colored pencils and other dry media on wood panel as well as digital painting/illustration.
