Bunnell Street Arts Center has received a grant from The Rasmuson Foundation to support a two-month residency at Bunnell from mid September to mid November this year with Cleveland artist Elizabeth Emery.
“I really look forward to getting to know the arts community in Homer and to create friendships that will last. A career in the arts is strengthened by relationships with other artists. These friends could become future collaborators, curators, advocates, exhibition partners, workshop leaders, and also people who understand the lifestyle of art making. Exploring an area of the country I’ve never been to and have been intrigued by for years is also extremely important.”
Emery earned a BA in Art History from the University of Pennsylvania. She shows regularly in Cleveland at William Busta Gallery and nationally at visual arts organizations and public events including the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA Cleveland), The Sculpture Center, Spaces, Burchfield-Penney Art Center, Oberlin College, IngenuityFest, and internationally in Slovakia, China, and Korea. Emery explores collaborative social practices through diverse media including sculpture, printmaking, and performance. The main project Emery will work on while on this residency is a community print project using a variety of print methods including a small press donated to Bunnell by the estate of Gaye Wolfe.
