Emily Leonard is one of our favorite local artists here in Nashville. From her site: “Emily Leonard’s paintings transcend any singular goal; they present themselves with an unusual clarity and apparent depth. They are at once landscapes and contemporary paintings.” Her work is featured in a new book called Speak for the Trees, where she wrote something we really identify with, “I am always looking for something to unfold, to know again what I have known forever. I am always looking for that which has always been, for salvation and to let it settle at my body.”You definitely have to see these works in person to appreciate their beauty and mystery. Her current exhibition is at The Rymer Gallery through Jan. 2nd 2010…so try to see it before it’s too late!
