Work by Emily Leonard 

When: Thu., June 23, 6-8 p.m. 2011
We don’t always get to enjoy the work that our hardest working artists are creating. In addition to their local ties, many Nashville artists also find representation in other cities, developing far-flung reputations through their diligence and prolificity. Emily Leonard is well-known for her large-scale landscapes of brooding wooded scenes, but what you might not know is that Leonard often travels her work to out-of-town exhibitions like her upcoming show in Asheville, N.C. This time local aficionados will have a (sneak) peek opportunity to see Leonard’s latest before it heads east. The artist’s new collection will be familiar to Leonard’s fans, but there is also an admirable abstraction of images taking place in these paintings that likely traces its roots to Leonard’s recent painting-a-day experiment Pasture Project. Stop by Leonard’s studio tonight and see for yourself.
