February Gallery Opening: Sara Barnes’ Foundation

A new month, a new gallery opening!

Local artist (and one fine lady) Sara Barnes is opening her latest exhibition Foundation at EMP this Friday, February 10 at 7PM.

Foundation will feature collage, embroidery, and site-specific work.

This Friday, EMP is joining forces with upstairs neighbor in/flux! The two will be hosting a multiple-level gallery opening party featuring Foundation and non sense, a multimedia group show showcasing the works of Michael Koliner, Ryan Hammond, Phil Hessler, and Harrison Tyler.

Opening Party at EMP: 7 – 9PM
Music at in/flux: 9 – 10PM

Foundation Runs: February 10 – March 4
Gallery Hours: Wed – Fri, 12PM – 6PM

Sara Barnes is currently a MFA Illustration Practices candidate at MICA. Barnes’ bold yet intricate collage work explores folk elements and narrative threads with embroidery and layered cut paper. Sara is also the founder and curator of Brown Paper Bag, a blog focused on showcasing artistic works on paper and beyond. Barnes previously exhibited her artwork at EMP’s (…and you’re just not good enough) in Washington, DC last February. The works can’t be done justice in 2-D form so EMP is thrilled to have Miss Barnes in for an up-close-and-personal session with her beautiful collection again!
