About the Event
Opening reception at the Deines Cultural Center on Friday, November 19th from 5-7pm, Joey Embers; Roaming House, A journey Home. In 2001 Joey Embers, a Kansas native from McPherson County, received a BA in Studio Art from Bethany College. It’s during this time that Joey found passion for learning and a strong sense of identity with a paint brush in hand and usually a charcoal smeared face. The paintings in this show come from a larger body of work called A Roaming House, a journey home that was started in 2014. The series depicts a house suspended in an endless shifting landscape of time and emotions. Using bold vibrant colors and a wide range of marks Joey leads the viewer on a journey through a surreal mindscape. The composition of each painting starts to reveal a dialogue between each of them. If you change the order and the relationships of the paintings, they will tell a different story. Joey’s exhibition of paintings will be in the Deines gallery from November 19th to January 5th.
