Barewolf Brewing presents the work of multidisciplinary artist Emily Manning-Mingle. Spanning the past six years, this show brings together intimate and optimistic fabric collages, paper quilts and textile paintings.
Opening Reception: Sunday, April 28th from 2-4pm
Wednesday & Thursday 4-9pm
This weekend I rented a car and drove up to Amesbury, MA to install my work at BareWolf Brewing. This show includes work I created over the past six years. It is so exciting to see all the work together and has been making me think a lot about which parts of my practice have remained constant over the past several years and which parts of my work have changed.
This show feels like a celebration and a pivotal next step. I am excited to revisit and reflect on this show over the next few months.
Seven of my Paper Quilts have been hanging on the bright orange walls at Darwin's for the past year. It's unreal what a whirlwind the past year has been. I installed the work last June, so it's been up for almost a year. I am grateful for the opportunity I've had to show my work at Darwin's and have enjoyed meeting up with friends at their third Thursday wine nights, for delicious sandwiches, to buy picnic supplies or for a cup of coffee late at night. I've also enjoyed receiving surprised texts from friends who have stumbled on my work when visiting the cafe.
The night that I went to the cafe to take down my work, one of the baristas that was working there said, "Wow. It's the end of an era" and smiled. While I'm also a bit melancholy that the work is coming down, I am focused on the fact that endings create space. Sometimes the space creates new opportunities immediately and sometimes the space is slower, providing time to sit quietly and reflect. I am excited to bring the work back home, to look at it with fresh eyes and to submit pieces to new shows; giving them the freedom to live in other places.

Opening Reception: Friday, February 6 | 6-9pm
Located on the fifth floor of the College of Fine Arts, Gallery 5 enhances the quality of life of the undergraduate students in the School of Visual Arts by offering them a professional exhibition space near their studios where they are able to plan, propose, and install their own exhibitions. Students consult with the Visual Arts Faculty and administrative office, but are responsible for all aspects of their exhibition’s curation, including selection, display, and advertising. These exhibitions rotate on a biweekly basis during the regular academic year.
bioGraphical is a solo show that I proposed this semester. The show includes work I created over the past year while studying abroad in Venice, Italy, WOOFING on a farm in San Polo in Chanti, Italy and while working in my undergraduate studio in Boston, MA. The show includes line drawings and photographic "sketches," paintings and mixed-media drawings.
