Emily Brown (Maine) has created work inspired by the natural world for most of her life. She works both outdoors and in the studio, with a variety of dry and wet media on paper and other supports. Her style is beautifully expressed in her intaglio prints.
Brown received a BFA from the University of Pennsylvania after attending Middlebury College, Middlebury, VT; the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia and the Boston Museum School, Boston MA. She has had solo exhibitions in Manhattan, Maine and Philadelphia, and numerous group exhibitions along the east coast and in France. Selected awards include residencies at the MacDowell Foundation, La Napoule Art Foundation (Côte d’Azur, France) and Wave Hill in the Bronx, NY; a Purchase Award by the American Academy of Arts and Letters; a Pew Fellowship in Painting; a Leeway Foundation Award for Excellence in Works on Paper; and a Visual Arts grant from the Independence Foundation. Her work is included in many collections, including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Princeton University Art Museum, the James A. Michener Museum, the MacDowell Colony, PAFA, Alliance Bernstein in Tokyo and the US Embassy, Astana, Kazakhstan.
