“Ambient Time” at McDonough Museum of Art

Elizabeth Emery

OPENING RECEPTION: April 1, 2015, 5-6pm

Elizabeth Emery, MFA | Alfred University, BA in Art History | University of Pennsylvania.
Emery’s tactile, colorful sculptures and prints search for narratives in everyday objects. Emery has exhibited nationally at visual arts organizations including Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA Cleveland), William Busta Gallery, The Sculpture Center, Zygote Press, Spaces, Burchfield-­‐Penney Art Center, The Clay Studio, and internationally in Slovakia, China, and Korea. She recently returned from a two-­‐month residency in Homer, Alaska where she spent a great deal of time looking at clouds and mountains.

Elizabeth Emery grew up in gritty Philadelphia and pastoral Lawrenceville, NJ. She lived in New York City from 1986 to 1999, where she designed textiles for clothing. In an unexpected and complete career change Elizabeth then raced bicycles professionally for ten years, traveling all over the world and throughout the United States. Athletics remains important, in part, because of the physicality of her sculptural process. Currently, Elizabeth splits her time between working at Zygote Press and in her studio.
