Art in the Atrium – Franklin Crossing Fine Art Exhibition Presents Artist
Art in the Atrium, Franklin Crossing, invites the public to an exhibition featuring the artwork of Emma Carpenter of Bend, among other local artists. The exhibition continues through November 30, 2020. The gallery business hours are seven days a week, 7am-7pm.
Artist Emma Carpenter, a high school sophomore, presents her first gallery exhibit with artwork created in the past two years. Working in her favorite digital medium as well as graphite, Carpenter has had only two formal art classes, both through the public school. With a high GPA, she now participates in Advanced Placement and honor classes and receives college credits.
When asked what inspires her art, she said: “Music is what inspires me when I’m drawing — it can all change tones, and it fits into unique artwork. Different moods to each song create different moods to each piece.” She notes, “Drawing takes me into my comfort zone, I feel I have the freedom to create my own world. After high school, I will be going to college to be a chemist, but my art will continue to be a large presence in my life. I will continue to escape into it.”
