Stop in to Trident between now and December 28th to view a selection of Emily Passman’s beautiful work.
Emily is an expressive painter with works that exude an immediacy and freshness in brushstroke. She works from observation, both in the studio and “en plein air,” and says this: “I am less inspired by a ‘pretty picture,’ and more with making a statement with paint, preferring a mundane or grungy scene as a vehicle to get paint onto a canvas.” Her work is in galleries in New England and in private collections internationally. After earning a fine arts degree and an M.ED, she had a successful career as a teacher and graphic designer. She teaches individuals and small groups in her barn-studio, and at various venues including Concord Art. Her memberships include Rockport Art Association as an artist member, and Lexington Council for the Arts, where she is working to create a vibrant arts community. Emily is also exhibiting reproductions of ink drawings from pages of her sketchbooks.
