Beyond an Artist Talk with Emily Hoisington
June 26, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Join The Drawing Project for Beyond the Artist Talk with Emily Hoisington at Gage Family Gallery at Augsburg College. The Beyond the Artist Talk series encourages public engagement with the artist and their processes in a gallery setting.
In “One Line” exhibition at Augsburg College, Emily Hoisington uses continuous lines to show encounters between a person and their environment. By using the same line to show, for example, both the contour of a finger and the texture it is touching, the subject and object become connected. Emily Hoisington’s exhibition of drawings and books from “One Line” are on view at the Gage Family Gallery at Augsburg College from May 12 to August 7, 2016.
Following an introductory presentation of the work in Gage Family Gallery by the artist we will move to the Augsburg Quad for an artist’s drawing demo and explanation and collaborative one-line drawings on sidewalks in the Quad and in meander books. All materials provided.
All ages and experience welcomed. Free and open to the public. Click here to sign up.
Outdoor sidewalk drawing will go on rain or shine unless weather is severe. Bring rain gear and umbrellas. If weather is severe we will move the activity inside.
Emily Hoisington (MFA/Minneapolis College of Art and Design) uses printmaking, painting, drawing, papermaking, and bookmaking in imaginative explorations of urban ecosystems. She’s interested in capturing the sensory experience of the elements and creatures of nature amid a built environment, as part of the larger question “What is it like to be human in this place and in this community?” She received the MCAD collegiate fellowship at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts and the Jerome Emerging Printmaker’s Residency at Highpoint Center for Printmaking in 2008, and was Artist in Residence at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts in 2016. Her work is included in public and private collections and she has exhibited both nationally and internationally. She teaches at Saint Paul College, the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, Augsburg College, and the Minnesota Center for Book Arts.
