Current Exhibit

Day LiliesHoliday 17: Fiber and Paper will run November 17 through February 3, 2018 at Emporium Framing & Gallery. Please join us for our open house December 1 from 5:00 - 8:00 PM during Shop & Stroll Event in town down South Berwick, ME. This is a collection of tapestries and paintings of Suzanne Pretty, woodcuts of Holly Elkins, etchings of Patricia Giebutoski, woodcuts of Mark Phillip and etching and lithograph of Pat Hardy.

Suzanne Pretty states, “The thread of the environment and its fragmentation has run through my work as an obsession for a number of years.  The interweaving of technology and the natural world explodes into every aspect of our lives.  I work with this contrast between the hard edge modern world of glitz and glitter against the natural environment.

In this love/hate relationship lip service is given to the natural world while technology bulldozes through the environment both literally and figuratively. The struggle is a world of contrast and conflict. Although not the first environmental pieces, Day Lilies has the first image of heavy equipment inserted into the bucolic scene of day lilies growing in a stream bed.

Now more than ever I feel it is important to bring focus on our environment and the changes occurring before it is too late. "
