Amze Emmons is a Philadelphia-based, multi-disciplinary artist with a background in drawing and printmaking. His images evoke a sense of magical/minimal realism inspired by architectural illustration, comic books, cartoon language, information graphics, news footage, consumer packaging, and instruction manuals. An exhibition publication will accompany the show and serve as a catalogue raisonné of his oeuvre to date. The exhibition was conceived and curated by the Academy Art Museum and will travel to the Ross Art Museum, at Ohio Wesleyan University. Amze Emmons will serve as the Museum’s second Artist-in-Residence at the time of his exhibition. Details on educational and other special programming will be available on academyartmuseum.org.
Academy Art Museum exhibitions are sponsored by the Talbot County Arts Council, the Maryland State Arts Council, and the Star Democrat. Open daily, 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Free Wednesday Tours 11:00 a.m.
