ART + WINE
The gallery at Foundry Vineyards opened in 2010 and has been fortunate to exhibit artists such as Deborah Butterfield, Ai Weiwei, Chuck Close, Kiki Smith, Matthew Day Jackson, Rob Pruitt, James Lavadour, and more. In the gallery, we aim to exhibit a diverse group of established artists, mediums, and concepts predominantly in the vein of contemporary art.
The gallery hosts quarterly exhibits. Though the dates are subject to change, art openings typically occur in February, May, August, and November and are co-curated by owners Lisa & Jay Anderson. The Foundry Vineyards gallery is not open for artist inquiries, however the Andersons believe strongly in collaboration and are open to proposals from art and humanities focused organizations.
BEING, SENSING, DWELLING
Recent Works by Emily Somoskey
May 2021 - September, 2021
ABOUT THE SHOW
Foundry Vineyards is pleased to announce BEING, SENSING, DWELLING, an exhibition of paintings and works on paper by Emily Somoskey, visiting professor at Whitman College.
Opening reception will take place Thursday, May 27 from 5:00pm- 7:00pm.
This exhibition is centered around a series of six expansive paintings. These mixed media paintings use representational and abstract methods to explore the ways we simultaneously experience physical and mental space. On a material level, Emily's work is largely built through layering paint and various forms of photographic imagery. (https://emilysomoskey.com)
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Emily Somoskey is a 2 -D mixed media artist and painter from Northeast Ohio. She pursued a BA in Art Education / Painting at The University of Akron in Akron, OH (2013) and her MFA at Michigan State University, in East Lansing, MI (2020). Emily is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor in Painting at Whitman College, in Walla Walla, WA.
"My work gives form to the complexity, instability, and enigmatic nature of our lived experiences. Through these mixed media paintings, I explore the simultaneity between the actual and the psychological, the material and the immaterial, the visible and that which lies beyond sight. Domestic spaces are largely the carrier for this ambition, which offer multi-sensory and ever-changing material that the paintings build upon. Recognizable subject matter surfaces amidst an expanse of abstraction, alluding to both the banality and mystery of the day-to-day. Digital collage fragments and painted shards might reference a tiled floor, a stove-top burner, or the edge of a piece of furniture but they also point to readings that move beyond the domestic. The complex tension of their visual density calls for contemplation; asking the viewer to slow down in order to navigate, discover and dwell within them."
