Emily Amy Gallery presents new works by emerging Atlanta-based artist, Meta Gary. Painting on untreated, exposed wood, Gary incorporates a contact paper/stencil technique to create a strong visual contrast and to accentuate her whimsical and seemingly simple imagery. Gary’s dreams about animals inform her work. Human and animal interaction, specifically the intimacy between the two, serves as the catalyst for the imagined scenarios that occupy her exposed wood panels. The distinct parallels that can be drawn between animals and humans serves as a significant theme the can be found throughout Gary’s work.
Animal Instinct marks the first solo exhibition for Meta Gary at the gallery. The show continues through April 30th. Please join us in welcoming the artist to Emily Amy Gallery to celebrate the opening of her show. Cocktails and hors d’ oeuvres will be served and the artists will be present to answer questions.
