Amy Amdur, CEO

Amy amdur

For Amy Amdur, art is an enduring passion. A Chicago area native, Amdur cultivated her love of art from childhood, starting painting classes at the tender age of 5. That summer she exhibited her early paintings at an art show in her hometown, where she was offered $25 for a painting, a payment she graciously turned away. To Amdur, exhibiting at a show was enough of an award and the excitement it brought has fueled her passion to bring artists, communities and collectors together for more than 30 years and counting.

Amdur Productions has a staff of more than 30 employees. Today, Amdur Productions has received national acclaim for having organized and directed many of the country’s most prestigious juried art festivals, presenting more than 40 festivals this year. Amy is excited to bring a new online art commerce site, ArtZipper.comTM, to life.

When she’s not coordinating an upcoming festival or volunteering, Amy enjoys playing golf, traveling, cooking and spending time with her children.
