Amy Glasser, an American multi-media artist, practices a wide range of disciplines including painting, drawing, sculpture, jewelry-making and documentary film. Amy believes that art is a form of human consciousness - that art can be found not only in painting, but in mundane daily tasks such as cooking or day-to-day human interaction. A recent graduate of Pitzer College where she received a Bachelor’s Degree in Studio Art, Amy is committed to using art as means for artistic expression for herself and sharing her skills with others, and is a firm believer that art is a mode of social empowerment.
Amy recently volunteered with the Pomona Day Laborers, teaching and creating art with immigrant men who work as day laborers. Painting portraits of these men who are often invisible in American culture, Amy more fully understood the importance of cultural expression, political resistance and how a portrait creates a personal connection between the viewer and the subject.

“I believe that art is a form of human consciousness and a way to interact infinitely with the universe. I utilize my art-making as a voice to connect with the outside world: to tell the stories of the unheard and to raise awareness of the unnoticed beauty of nature.”
