"Canvas Talk: A Forum of Dreams" debuts at Ridgefield Tusk & Cup Fine Coffee Saturday February 28th 5-8pm. Local artist Amy Oestreicher will be at an evening meet and greet on Saturday February 28th from 5pm to 8pm at Tusk & Cup Fine Coffee in Ridgefield, CT. Her work will be on display starting on January 26th. Amy Oestreicher is a twenty-seven year old artist, actress, musician, orator and writer residing in Westport, CT. The fulfillment of her dream to act was shockingly interrupted when, at the age of eighteen, she suffered a blood clot that left her in a coma for months and unable to eat or drink for over three years. Almost thirty surgeries later, Amy is still courageously fighting medical setbacks, and uses her painting and mixed media creations to transcend ten years of emotional and physical trauma. Her art demonstrates her journey into daylight and into a life of normalcy, which she is still traveling. Amy's work explores complicated themes of betrayal, leaping into the void, uncertainty, fate, flight, and rising up from ashes.
