Emily Glass

Hello! To the people reading this, my name is Emily Glass and I’m 16 years old from Long Island, New York. I’m also the granddaughter of your fabulous and wonderful Librarian, Karen Glass. I’m so grateful she asked me to be apart of this art show. During these crazy quarantine times, I’ve been trying to do things I normally wouldn’t have the time to do and one of them being painting. The inspiration for all my paintings you’re seeing are things that make me happy and have also challenged me to try out. For example, I never tried painting a butterfly let alone an ombré butterfly. I really enjoy painting those now. I hope to continue painting using this precious time we have. I hope you enjoy my art!

The first painting is 12"x24", acrylic, oil, stain and Flora on wood panel. "9939"

The second is a 24"x24" piece (again on wood panel) Acrylic, stain, magic marker and wax pencil. "5742"

About me:

"I have had no formal university training in studio art.  I, however, have found myself influenced by many unique individuals, admiring and studying their “work”over the decades .  Through the many personal and professional phases of my life and through many experiences in the mountains, on rivers, in art, writing, politics or cooking, I came to be (and continue to be) inspired by these people.  As I work today, their actions, words, visions or creations aid me.  I continue to find new ideas and new people to learn from. I hope this process never recedes."

About these works:

"These two pieces are a sampling of the work I created at the beginning of and during our continued bout with COVID-19. While they don't represent a specific message (my work sometimes, but rarely does) I think they might simply speak to an over-arcing idea that you just can't suppress Art. It's everywhere. It will always persist. World Wars, Pandemics and Dictators have done their collective best to silence Art...but it is and will always be bigger than all of us."

STANDING BIRCHES

Watercolor on Arches

Hdkline@gmail.com

Keene Valley, NY

Summer 2020

$100 unframed

 

This stand of birches has intrigued me for many years. You can see them on Route 73, where the culverts were waiting patiently to be planted. For many years, this little stand looked strong and healthy, and that’s how I want to remember them. As you will see, however, their strength seems to have sapped and some of them have died. Why? I don’t know. Maybe COVID-19 got to them as well.
