Amy Tingle has been an artist and a writer since she can remember. Her work has been shown in galleries across the country, including a a piece that won honorable mention at the 2016 Newark Arts Council Open Doors Exhibit.
From Tingle about this piece: “My favorite four words from Martin Luther King’s speech delivered in 1963 at the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom are not his most famous “I have a dream,” but instead the words “We cannot walk alone.” His long-ago dream is still my dream, that if we soften our gaze, listen, walk with each other, and work hard to truly see each other, one day we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. It is a dream, not a delusion, I hope.”
