OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, January 11, 5:00 - 8:00 PM
Emily Herr is a Richmond native who creates custom hand-painted murals at home and on the road under the name HerrSuite. She specializes in careful context-based design with bright and playful imagery. Painting murals is an excuse to explore new settings for visual art, work closely with an ever-changing variety of people, and push her physical and creative limits.
"'Who Is She?' is a collection of the process work and finished pieces that make up the 'Girls! Girls! Girls!' Mural Series. This series is a celebration of strip club signage taken at face value. Designed to sell the idea of women as a product, the leering words become jubilant when reframed by the people they describe. These drawings became monuments to the everyday array of all female-identifying people.
