Art by Jamie Hansen | Anderson Area YMCA | June 2019

Artist channels talent to become “Instrumental” in helping those in need
Anderson, SC – Watercolor artist Jamie Hansen will showcase her latest work at the Anderson Area YMCA June 7th through August.  For every piece that is purchased, Jamie will donate thirty percent of the sales back to the organization’s annual campaign.  The YMCA uses those funds toward scholarships for individuals and families to enroll in programs such as swim lessons, youth sports, summer camps and general memberships.  
“We are delighted to have Jamie’s work on display at the YMCA this summer.” says Anne Tedder, Fund Development Director for the Anderson Area YMCA. “As a YMCA member, Jamie recognizes the importance of making our programs and services available to those in need. Her support of the annual campaign through the art exhibit will provide extra dollars to fund financial assistance. I encourage everyone to come see her wonderful works of art!” 
Jamie will showcase nearly thirty new paintings of musical instruments.  Inspired in part by her husband’s career in music education, Jamie creates brightly colored pianos, woodwinds and other instruments.  She is working towards painting every instrument in a symphony.
While Jamie’s work is showcased around the world, she is dedicated to the Anderson community.  Jamie shares her collections at local events downtown, the Anderson Arts Center and the Anderson Mall.  You can also find her pieces displayed at Bay 3 Gallery located within the Anderson Arts Center.  

“Jamie is not only successful as an artist, but also an entrepreneur.” said Kimberly Spears, Economic Development Director for the City of Anderson. “She has participated in a variety of programming and educational opportunities through the city in order to grow as a businesswoman. It is always exciting to see an artist channel their talent to create a viable business model in our community.”

Be sure to experience a watercolor world of art beginning June 7th through August at the Anderson Area YMCA.  The exhibition is open to the public. Even if you are a not a member of the YMCA, stop by the front desk to inquire about Jamie’s exhibition.
