Demos at Macadam Flooring

This past weekend, Amato's artists' Christy Perrine and Brenda Boylan were invited to demonstrate their talents at Macadam Flooring and Design Center in Portland. Because interior decorators use fine are to enhance their clients environments, the pairing of Amato's art with Macadam's open house "Spring is Green" event was a great way to share what our artists can do and provide. Spearheaded by Amato's artist Donna Sanson with the owners of Macadam Flooring Jenny Ruth and Samir Dean. Thanks Donna!
