  • Artist Tour: Amber Tutwiler

    Artist Amber Tutwiler is an emerging artist whose work focuses on the intersection between digital spaces, the body, and phenomenological encounters. Elaborating on the relationships between the body, interface, and locality, her work explores authenticity of experience (real vs. curated vs. imagined land/body scapes). In 2018, she founded H/OURS Collective in response to the lack of emerging contemporary art in Palm Beach County.

    Artist Tours feature local and emerging artists leading informal, 30-minute gallery conversations every third Friday of the month.
