July Open Studios
Emily is interested in the balance between the artist’s gestures and the nature of the materials used working together to form something compelling. Their making embraces disorder, fixing surprises and movement to a surface, though the effect is controlled and meditative. Emily’s paintings are objects to be lived with.
2018 exhibitions include:
- Hot Numbers until 4 February 2018
- COS summer exhibition 21-22 July 2018
- Oxfam bookshop, Huntingdon 26 August – 22 September
- Cambridge Open Art Exhibition 12-14 October 2018
