OUR 2018 BENEFIT HONOREES

Amy Amdur


Highland Park’s own Amy Amdur began painting at TAC (then called the Suburban Fine Arts Center) when she was just 5 years old. A past TAC Board Member, Amdur has worked passionately to give artists a variety of opportunities to show and sell their work, including the annual Festival of Fine Arts which benefits TAC. Celebrating the 35th anniversary of her company, Amdur Productions, she has produced well over 500 art festivals throughout the Chicagoland area, many of which have won national awards. She also serves on several local boards and commissions.

Amy Butts

Amy has been teaching at TAC for 15 years providing students with the know- how to take their visions from concept to reality. Amy grew up in South Bend, Indiana on a street named Jewel Avenue. Her father was a tool & die worker and her mother a life long seamstress. Amy is passionate about teaching and loves inspiring her students to find their own creative voices. She relishes the genuine connection she forges with her students at TAC and the Highland Park community.

Ana Spencer Reed


Raised on the banks of the Great Lakes State, Ana is a teaching artist, now based in Chicago. She graduated from Northern Michigan University in 2005, with a BFA in Ceramic Arts. In 2006, Ana began teaching clay and fiber arts with the motto “Art makes children powerful.” Although a celebrated artist herself, she takes more pride in her student’s accolades. From making their first pinch pot and throwing their first vase on the wheel, standing by her students being awarded on local and national levels, Ana is living out her passion: teaching.
