This August Frame of Mind is happy to host Artists Amy Shekhter & Amber Adams in their cooperative exhibition debut: Eye Candy
Amy & Amber are local artists with an electrifying body of POP fine art. The artists are inspired by blending historic icons with contemporary art methods resulting in a colorful body of work that is both thought provoking and vibrant. Amy is a lifelong artist with roots in education, while Amber is heavily involved with local art painting murals and creating originals. Their worlds collide in this cooperative exhibition.
Amy Shekhter is an emerging American contemporary artist. She is inspired by historic iconic figures and her love of today’s fashion. She uses a creative mix of mediums, merging digital design with various layers of texture found from resin, glitter, paint, and crystals.

In the past five years, her love for teaching has transferred into a desire to focus more on her own work. Her admiration for influential females can be seen in her past and current works, as she creates a playful spin on contemporary culture using prominent branding and bold colors. Guided by her fascination with the differences in communities, values, and needs, she has seen in her move across the U.S., she expresses this contrast in culture through her work.
Amber Adams is an abstract artist “lured by the limitlessness and freedom of creating.” The artist describers her artist journey stating “Every piece is a passion project, allowing me to explore my emotions whole heartedly. No piece is started with a knowing of what the ending will be, and that’s what’s unique about them. Each piece has become what is was meant to…”
