Alumna Emily Scally Exhibited at Cape Ann Chamber

March 31, 2022

Emily Scally (‘21) has a selection of her recent work on exhibition at the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce. Scally’s artistic practices focuses on large scale abstract expressionist work. Her time working with Montserrat Galleries and her dual concentrations in Painting and Art History have also propelled her into exploratory research as a way to further develop her craft. Lately her inspiration has come from Joan Snyder, Joan Mitchell, Yayoi Kusama, and other abstract artists.

“Recently my work has taken to drawing from life struggle and maturity while incorporating the understanding of the human experience. Using color and form to express emotion and create a sense of depth are my favorite aspects about composing a new painting. I aim to work with spontaneous movement while laying down intentful color and placement decisions. The combination of color, form, and spontaneous mark making are key themes of my paintings. These themes allow me to continue to show a raw relationship between myself and my work.”

Scally’s work is viewable (and up for sale!) through April at the Cape Ann Chamber’s office at 24 Harbor Loop, Gloucester from 10am – 5pm.
