Emily O’Leary

Sat May 2, 2020 - Thu Jun 11, 2020

Emily O’Leary is an Austin-based artist working primarily in fibers. Like a painstakingly slow form of drawing, her embroidered samplers depict scenarios that are modestly strange and catalog circumstances just on the edge of recognition or familiarity. O’Leary grew up in Massachusetts and received a BFA in Sculpture from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston before moving to New York for several years. She received an MFA in Drawing & Painting from The University of Texas at Austin.
