Jamie Sanin is a visual artist, educator, and organizer living in New York’s Hudson Valley. Raised in Orange County NY with B.S. in Visual Arts Education, her interest in teaching sprouted from her own experience with the arts; in addition to visual art, Jamie also studied dance, music, and theatre from a young age. Each experience provided them not only with a breadth of cultural knowledge but also the opportunity to consider the importance of community care via accessible arts, for which she is an advocate.
Through their artwork, Jamie aims to create cultural commentary using a visual language and explores themes of identity, perception, and representation within the arts. Jamie is also the founder of Celebrate845, whose mission is to organize, recognize, and celebrate marginalized creatives via pop-up events across the Hudson Valley. She is thrilled to serve on the ASK Board and be a part of the Kingston arts community.
