This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Emma Amos, born in 1938 in Atlanta, Georgia, reflects her African-American heritage through paintings, prints and weavings that explore political and social issues of Black life. Amos received a B.A. degree in 1958 from Antioch College, Yellow Springs, Ohio; a B.F.A. degree in 1959 in England at the London Central School; and an M.A. degree in 1966 from New York University on New York City.

In her own teaching career, Amos has taught at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, since 1980. Since 1987, she has also held a leadership position at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, in Maine.

Emma Amos's work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York City; Newark Museum, New Jersey; Minnesota Museum of Art, Minneapolis; Dade County Museum of Art, Miami, Florida; United States Embassy, London; and Skandinaviska Enskilda Bankn, Stockholm, Sweden.

Amos received a grant in 1983 from the National Endowment of the Arts, and one from the New York Foundation for the Arts in 1989.

The artist's one-person and group exhibitions include the Minneapolis Institute of Art, Minnesota, 1968. Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C., 1984; National Urban League, New York City, 1980; Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, New York City, 1984; Galleri Oscar, Stockholm, Sweden, 1986; Museum of Modern Art, New York City, 1988-1991; Bronx Museum, New York City, 1991; National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, D.C., 1991-1993; and Fukui Fine Arts Museum, Japan, 1993.
