Small Domestic Miracles: Works by Emily R. Shepardson

Emily Shepardson Monotype - Crossing into AutumnEmily R. Shepardson will be having a solo exhibition entitled Small Domestic Miracles in the Fisher Gallery of prints and paintings starting January 20, 2018 and running through March 5, 2018. There will be a artist reception on Saturday afternoon, February 10, 2018 2-4PM.

Emily is a printmaker and painter who describes her process has collage-like. For a print she will begin with a series of different plates and stencils layers and combined until the final image is achieved.

She describes small domestic miracles as household magic like soaking white napkins in bleach to remove food stains, or perfectly gluing a broken cup back together again. It could also be catching sight of a tangle of birds circling over the house or having a crow follow me to work. In my art, it’s a glimpse of a swan in the creek, or the shadow touch of a hand on your back.
