AEIVA Inside the Arts featuring Emily Eveleth
Join us on Tuesday, September 15 at 6p CT // 7p ET for our next AEIVA: Inside the Arts featuring artist, Emily Eveleth!
Hear from Emily as she discusses her artistic practice and works in our current exhibition, “a la carte: A Visual Exploration of Our Relationship with Food.” (September 8 – December 12, 2020)
About the Artist // Emily Eveleth was born in Connecticut in 1960. She currently lives and works in Massachusetts. She received an undergraduate degree from Smith College and pursued graduate studies at the Massachusetts College of Art. For nearly two decades, Emily Eveleth has insistently pursued the ironic and expressive potential of her signature image, the ordinary and ubiquitous doughnut. The new paintings amplify and extend Eveleth’s technical achievements and formal concerns while adding drama to her pictorial range.
Her work is included in prominent museums, corporate and private collections. In 2010 the artist had a solo exhibition at Smith College Museum of Art in Northampton, MA. Among other awards, she was the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship for Painting, and a French Government Grant for the Artist-in-Residency Program in Rochefort-en-Terre. She was a visiting artist at the American Academy in Rome.
