Make a gift to help keep Atlanta Contemporary free, safe, and open to all.
Amanda Banks is a self-taught artist known for her tactile, contemporary fiber art which she began creating in 2017. Amanda was born in Elgin, Il, but relocated to rural North Georgia as a child where she currently lives and practices using the land as a source of peace and inspiration. Most of her materials are intentionally sourced second-hand, allowing the irregular availability to act as a catalyst for creativity and exploration. Amanda has taught workshops and exhibited in Atlanta, GA, Oakland, CA, East Tennessee State University Tipton and Slocumb Galleries, and Rome, GA, where she made her curatorial debut. Amanda is an upcoming resident at Stay Home Gallery in Paris, TN (March 2023) and Stove Works Gallery in Chattanooga, TN (August 2023). She is currently in exploration mode dreaming up large-scale fiber-based installations and planning collaborative community-based projects.
