NEW TO NEWPORT ARTIST DEBUTS AT JESSICA HAGEN FINE ART’s EXHIBIT ‘FLOWER POWER IV’

Newport, RI: Newly transplanted, mixed-media artist Emily M Randolph debuts artwork at Jessica Hagen Fine Art gallery’s exhibition, Flower Power IV, Saturday, April 10 - Sunday, May 9, 2021 In Newport, Rhode Island. Emily will be exhibiting from her newest collection, ‘Garden under the Sea.’

In October 2020 Emily drove across country from Scottsdale, AZ with her husband Dan and three cavalier King Charles Spaniels to settle in Newport, RI to be close to grandchildren and for a change of scenery from desert sand to sandy beaches. Her home studio was soon up and running and she drew inspiration from her new surroundings, as well as from insightful conversations with local gallery owner Jessica Hagen of Jessica Hagen Fine Art whom she first ‘met’ long distance via Instagram. “The colors of the Southwest are much different than those of the Atlantic coastline,” says Emily. “And while this may seem obvious, it does take time to absorb the new palette and bring it to life with your own voice. Moving can make seismic shifts in an artist’s work. For me, I have transitioned to mixed-media mainly incorporating 3D photography applications and resin to adding abstract painting on panels with alcohol inks and resins. On the surface, this is a huge leap, but every artist works from a different approach. Mine is that I am fascinated with conveying the likeness of water in all its forms. I am driven by the subject and then, how to use materials to convey it. 

 “My new and growing body of work, ‘Garden under the Sea,’ expresses my love of water and botanicals. So many living creations remain unseen under the sea but my hope is that through my imagination and art, you can peer through the waters and be enlivened by all the colors and life I know exist below the surface. Works are on cradled wood or acrylic panels with alcohol inks and finished with a glossy and textured film representing the movement of water.”

ABOUT ADC & Art Comes Alive! - The nation’s largest award show and exhibit for artists

September 24, 2019 – Cincinnati, OH – The countdown is on for the biggest, fine-art event of the year—Art Comes Alive (ACA), hosted and produced by ADC, Art Design Consultants. Known as the “Academy Awards for Art”, ACA’s 10th annual award ceremony and exhibition opening will take place on Saturday, October 5, 2019. For the past 10 years, ACA has supported over 1,500 artists with $1,800,000 in purchase awards, gallery contracts, publishing contracts, publicity, and cash. Other prestigious awards include Emerging Artist of the Year, Summit Artist of the Year and Lifetime Achievement Award for both male and female artists. ACA accelerates artists’ careers by getting artwork in front of art-industry insiders such as interior designers, art galleries, and art collectors, and to date, over 350 pieces of art have been sold. Artwork is also being sold to prestigious corporate and private collectors locally and nationally. Litsa Spanos, president of ADC and founder of ACA says the initial idea for ACA came to her when she was at a business award event. She thought, “Why shouldn’t artists also be acknowledged for what they do? Fast forward ten years, and ADC has given artists over $1.8 million in awards!” This year will be the ninth year exhibiting in ACA for local artist, Tom Owen, who has received purchase awards, gallery contracts, and publishing contracts through ACA. He says, “I love the fact that ACA is a competitive process; having my work evaluated and discussed by the slate of jurors only makes us artists better.” He adds that he loves having the opportunity to be exhibited alongside so many amazing artists. ACA’s award show will be followed with a two-month long exhibition at ADC’s gallery from Monday, October 7th through Friday, December 6th. The exhibition is free and open to the general public on weekdays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. ADC is located at 310 Culvert Street, 5th Floor, Cincinnati, OH 45202. Complimentary guest parking is available in an adjacent lot. For more information, contact Tanya Bartlett at (513) 723-1222 or tanya@adcfineart.com.

Artist Chooses Dibond For Cascading Mixed Media Wall Art In California

Emily Randolph Cascade Wall Installation

“I used my own original photography to capture a sample of ginkgo leaves. Though ginkgo leaves are instantly recognizable, they actually are all unique in shape, so I had a challenge to pick my favorite ones. I chose to use Dibond for this installation, and continue to use it for many of my artworks, because to me it’s actually a very sexy material! This may seem like an odd description for hard metal, but combined with my fabricator Artisan Colour’s superior UV-cured inks, the effect is velvety smooth. I love it, especially as a contrast with my glossy resin techniques.”
