“I felt happy I painted.”

Amy Caliri was born in Melrose, MA and currently lives in Watertown, MA. She began working at Gateway Arts in 1995. As an artist, Caliri is very observant and interested in portraying life. Over the course of her tenure, she has developed a unique painting and drawing style that is heavily reliant upon line work. While her drawings are heavily worked and appear dense, her paintings are vast and display an honest sense of space and depth. Recently, Caliri has begun working on a larger scale by recreating small photographs of herds of animals into large scale acrylic paintings. Caliri brings her unique style to many mediums, particularly ceramics and fibers. She enjoys making art and excels at exploring new ideas and techniques; she takes the time to observe what she chooses to represent and reflect on her artwork.

Caliri’s work has been shown at the Gateway Gallery in Brookline, the Berenberg Gallery in Boston, the Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton, Drive-By Projects in Watertown and the Mall at Chestnut Hill in Chestnut Hill, MA.

Additionally, Caliri’s fiber work has been written about in the Boston Globe, by esteemed art critic Cate McQuaid.

Perkins School for the Blind recently included Amy as their featured alumna for their Perspectives Issue: Spring 2015.
