Ink Paintings by Emily Rapport
Down-at-the-heel homes, corner stores, vacant lots, and construction sites are part of our changing urban landscape. The built environment is designed for use; paint peels, foundations shift, lives are lived. These familiar neighborhood scenes share a strong sense of locality but also belong to a larger picture of American landscape and culture. 23 ink paintings by Emily Rapport will be on view at Eat Paint Studio through August 14.
