Yocum Institute for Arts Education and the Board of Directors are pleased to announce the 2021 recipient of the Coggins Award, Amanda Lee Condict.
Established in 2006, the Coggins Award recognizes artists who embrace the values Jack Coggins exhibited: creativity, innovation, and service to the Yocum Institute and the community. The recipient is chosen from nominations submitted by members of the artistic community.
Amanda Lee Condict has studied at Kutztown University, Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and Empire State College. An illustrator and designer, she has always worked in graphic arts and publishing, first as an illustrator for a department store, then as art director of a monthly magazine and finally as the owner of a graphic design and illustration studio. She has illustrated for books, magazines and catalogs, created t-shirt and textile designs and done commissioned portraits. Amanda teaches in the fashion department at Albright College; operates Vincent van BYO, a painting party studio; and paints murals, mostly as community projects with area schools. She was a forensic sketch artist on an episode of “The Dead Files,” and serves on several area arts committees including Berks Art Alliance, Clay on Main, Berks Arts Council’s Roundtable, and as an administrator of the Sketching Workshop, an international organization of artists. She has shown her work at various local galleries, and has also curated and had artwork in “The Female Gaze,” which has shown in various galleries in Pennsylvania.
A ceremony honoring Amanda Lee Condict and her work will be held on Friday, December 3rd from 5:00-7:00 PM at the Yocum Institute for Arts Education located at 3000 Penn Ave, West Lawn, PA 19609. This event is free to attend. Light hors d’oeuvres and wine will be served.
