I have known Amie Potsic for some eight years as a curator, advisor, appraiser, and artist. Curatorial decisions come naturally to Ms. Potsic; her collecting advice is concise and delivered gently; she has no equal in the accuracy and thoroughness of her appraisals; her fabric installations for large spaces are stunning. Ms. Potsic’s connoisseurship has often had a salutary effect on my knowledge base.

Amie worked with me in the early days. She is an insightful and caring mentor. She helped me take the presentation of my photography to a new level by showing me how to clarify my vision for doing the hard work of editing my portfolio images. On top of that, Amie is a warm and wonderful human being and I can’t recommend her enough.
