Amanda Manheim

Arts Advocate, Fundraiser

Amanda Phillips Manheim is the Director of Fundraising and Advancement for FRESHFARM Markets, a Washington DC local food non profit, where some of her favorite partnerships involve the arts, with organizations such as The Phillips Collection, the Pink Line Project, Transformer DC and The Textile Museum.  Born in the UK, she grew up surrounded by sculpture, ceramics and prints, as her parents were avid collectors of emerging British artists.  Amanda began her career working in environmental health, became a food editor, a personal trainer and most importantly, a mother of three now-grown children, and has been fundraising for and promoting various non-profits for over 15 years.

In 2010, she took a Metalsmithing semester at Montgomery College, found Blair soon after and the rest is "personal- time history". Her favorite environments are her own metalsmithing studio, Silverworks, urban public art spaces or a secluded beach at the ocean, so working on Exnihilo is the most perfect fundraising project of all!
