Bison art

An example of Aman's work

POCATELLO — Linda Aman will give a free presentation about her experiences as Artist in Residence for Yellowstone National Park from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday in the Blackrock Commons of the Idaho State University Oboler Library.

A large group of Aman’s art, “Linda Aman’s Passion for Painting,” is on exhibition in the library’s first-floor art area through the end of September. It may be viewed whenever the library is open; check the hours at http://isu.libcal.com/hours/. The paintings in the exhibit include watercolors, acrylic, mixed media and more.

Aman is an award-winning artist and art instructor who teaches throughout Idaho, Oregon, Washington and beyond. Her goals include educating the general public through public speaking, studio interactions, videos, articles, teaching and mentoring. To this end, she has taught more than 3,000 adults in classes and workshops, many of whom are now professional, award-winning artists themselves. The member of a number of arts organizations, her work can be seen in regional and national shows, in corporate settings, galleries and private homes.

About her work, Aman writes: “I create because it is what I do, it is who I am. I create works that interpret a thought or image with emotion, telling a story of the beauty I see, capturing the essence of nature.” Her paintings include glowing, colorful watercolor florals and abstract landforms filled with texture and earthy hues.

The Oboler Library is located at 850 S. Ninth Ave., on the corner of South Ninth and Martin Luther King Jr. Way in Pocatello.
