from the studio of Amy M. Ditto & Aperture Photography
Happy Holidays! We hope that this finds you happy, healthy, and full of joy. The year is nearly over and what an amazing year it has been! We’ve got lots of cool things coming in 2016 but this newsletter will be a relatively brief one aimed at letting you know about Amy’s holiday show schedule.
If you are new to the list, thank you for your interest in our endeavors, and welcome! We hope that you have a wonderful holiday season and to see you at a show or two sometime soon! -Amy & Stef
PS- Amy is no longer showing at The Albuquerque Photographers’ Gallery in Old Town. If you wish to purchase her work over the holidays please call her at 505.286.1127 or visit The Range in Bernalillo or Studio 14 in Madrid! It’s not too late to order prints for Christmas!
“Dia de los Moo-uertos” chosen as the poster & t-shirt art for the Rio Grande Balloon Fiesta show!
In case you missed it, “Dia de los Moo-uertos”, new in 2014 to the Flowers & Skulls series not only won first place in this year’s “Color it Red” competition from Red Dog News but was also chosen as the poster art for the 27th annual Rio Grande Fine Arts & Crafts show!
Additionally, there was an article in the Albuquerque Journal about Amy and her work. How cool is that? You can read it here.
Studio 14 in Madrid, NM invites you to attend our holiday opening on Friday December 11th from 6-9pm. Amy has been showing in this fabulous, fun, contemporary art gallery since its opening in the spring of 2014 and loves being a part of this community. Come out, meet the artists, and party Madrid style for an evening!
If you are not familiar with the quirky, artsy town of Madrid, New Mexico (pronounced mad-drid) on the Turquoise Trailyou can read a bit about it in these great articles in The Denver Food & Wine Scene & The Oregonian. (Watch the video at the bottom of The Oregonian article carefully at ~35 seconds in, they pan past Amy’s wall!)
Stef’s background is in Computer Science and Studio Art. In 2010, he decided to make a career change, and founded Aperture Photography with his wife, Amy. Stefan’s talents are many, ranging from portraiture to gorgeous commercial and food photography. He is a Google Certified Photographer providing virtual walk-through tours for New Mexico businesses.
Visit Aperture Photography for examples of his work and to contact him for all of your photographic needs. Or call: 505.286.1127!
Amy got her Ph.D. in Biology in ’06 but also had training in Fine Art photography and a strong desire to pursue her creative side in a more tangible fashion. When her husband Stefan mentioned starting up a business in photography, an old love was rekindled, and she supported him with vigor and enthusiasm. Amy is active in supporting and promoting the arts, and is currently the Vice President of CSA/New Mexico Artists’ Market.
You can find her work on display (and for sale) at the The Range Cafe in both ABQ & Bernalillo, NM, Studio 14 in Madrid, NM, and online at amyditto.com. Call her at 505.286.1127, or contact her online via her artist website with inquiries regarding purchase!
