The sound of one’s own voice is rarely heard in isolation. While people talk to themselves from time to time, they are rarely listening with a reverent ear. Murmuration exists as a call to reconnect with the self on a deeper level. To give the inner voice the sacred space it deserves and the isolated attention required to feed the spiritual that resides in all of us.


Amanda Gentry (b.1973, Long Beach, California) is a Chicago-based sculptor working in clay. Her work is the result of dedication to form, material, and process, driven by a determination to reveal what is essential at the exclusion of the non-essential. She is a DCASE and IACA grant recipient and exhibits work nationwide, most recently exhibiting at the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts (San Angelo, Texas). Gentry received a BFA in Design with a minor in Sculpture from Boston University.

This exhibition is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency
