Emily Hall
My Companion
featuring Emily Hall
March 4, 2016 – March 31, 2016

The Dana Gallery of Missoula, MT welcomes local artist Emily Hall for an exhibition of some of her newest creations, hanging through the month of March. Emily is a self-taught artist, originally from a small town in Idaho. She is now a custom picture framer and creates her autobiographical artwork. Hall gives credit of the creation of these works to a series of notebooks she’s kept since she was young.

Emily’s mixed media artwork is rooted in the strong lines of her illustrative style, contrasting subject matter and integration of found objects/materials. “The threads are clear,” Hall states, “a love of texture and nature, a delight in cartoon, and a place for emotional release.” Hall’s compelling characters interact with the viewer in carefully constructed scenes, often with the company of animal parallels. Her creation of playful yet emotive vignettes use irony and dark humor to create relatable scenes.

As an artist, Emily implores her audience to let down their guard, be introspective, be inquisitive of reality and find humor in the darker side of life. Come visit Emily Hall and her artwork at the opening reception during First Friday on March 4th, 5PM-8PM or throughout the month.

Opening Reception:
