Amanda Dolan's "Precious Things" opening recap – Saturday, October 17th, 2009

AMP3 PREvent

Mixed-media artist and AMP3 client Amanda Dolan unveiled her latest collection of artwork, titled “Precious Things” on Saturday night, October 17th, 2009 at the Ward-Nasse Gallery on Prince Street in SoHo.

Unlike Amanda’s other shows, this collection was more cheerful in theme. Each of the pieces featured a vibrant mix of bright colors like pink, blue and purple – all mixed with hearts, flowers, rainbows and more – including Amanda’s beloved French bulldog, Pearl. About half of the works from “Precious Things” sold the night of the opening. In addition, Amanda unveiled her first venture into sculpting by creating a piece that featured the bottom half of a mannequin covered in mixed media turned into what Amanda calls a “post-modern flower pot.”

Amanda was dressed to match her works of art as well, donning Betsey Johnson from head-to-toe with a black vintage Betsey Johnson dress, black Betsey tights with pink roses, and leopard print Betsey pumps.

White and red wine were served to guests in attendance, along with an array of colorful mini-cupcakes, customized M&Ms, and hard candy shaped in hearts and gem rings to match the occasion.

Amanda’s exhibit is on display until October 31st, 2009. For more information about Amanda Dolan, her work, and her private commission portrait services, visit
