YADKINVILLE, N.C. – The Yadkin Arts Council will host Emily Clare’s “Where have All the Flowers Gone?” in the Welborn Gallery March 2 – April 21, 2023. This exhibition will call attention to native plants that are essential in our ecosystem, and under extraordinary pressure. The series will include abstract works of native, non native, and exotic invasive species.
Emily’s process includes transferring elements of plant life onto paper, and showing aspects of those elements that are easily missed when viewed in their natural habitats. Her monoprints are often enriched by drawing into them with ink, gouache or watercolor, and by adding cutouts and overlays. She chooses colors after intimate observation, and with respect for the natural world. The finished artwork is a monoprint, a collage, and/or mixed-media with sizes ranging from 5” x 7” to 24” X 30”.
Her intention is to cause people to protect native plant diversity, because our natural world faces existential threats from invasive plants, invasive animals, climate change, and pollution.
Join us for an opening reception on March 2, 2023 from 5-7 p.m. to celebrate this exhibit. FREE Admission, all are welcome to attend..
