Margery Amdur has created over 60 Mixed Media installations. She is known for her innovative use of everyday materials as well as her unconventional studio practice. Many times it involves students, outside Community Members. It has been said that part of her practice is akin to a Quilting Bee or Barn Raising.
Originally from Pittsburgh, Margery Amdur received her B.F.A. from Carnegie-Mellon University and her M.F.A. from the University of Wisconsin in Madison. Margery has had over 60 solo and two-person exhibitions. Her international exhibitions include Turkey, Hungary, Poland, England, Iceland, Latvia, and Suriname.
She has been reviewed in national and international publications that include Sculpture Magazine, New American Paintings, and Manifest International Publications. Her work was on the cover and featured in the fall 2014 issue of Art Voices.
For over twenty years, Margery has been actively creating site-specific, temporary, and permanent art installations. In 2012, she completed Walking on Sunshine, a permanent public art project, in Septa’s Spring Garden underground-subway station, Philadelphia, PA. In the fall of 2015, as part of the Art in Airport Program, Margery created My Nature, a mixed-media, site-specific installation in Terminal B, at the Philadelphia International Airport. As part of her six week residency at Central European University, Budapest, Hungary, Margery and a group of graduate students created Inside Out, an installation inside of an elevator on the main campus. In 2016 and 2017 The US Embassy selected Amass #16 to be installed at the US Ambassador’s Residence, in Riga, Latvia, and Amass #17 to be permanently installed in their newly completed US Embassy Headquarters in Paramaribo, Suriname.
