Emily Fleisher’s work plays with ideas of spirituality embedded within the home and daily routine. These objects use elements of the suburban landscape to evoke the monumental. Fleisher is originally from New York, and currently lives in San Antonio, TX. She received her MFA in Sculpture from Rhode Island School of Design, and her BFA in Sculpture from Syracuse University. Recent solo exhibitions include Lawndale Art Center, Houston, TX; Box 13 Artspace, Houston, TX; Blue Star Contemporary, San Antonio, TX; and Women and their Work, Austin, TX. Her work has also been included in group exhibitions at Rutgers University Paul Robeson Galleries, Newark, NJ; Everson Museum of Art, Syracuse, NY; and Stay Gold Gallery in Brooklyn, NY.
Presented in Artpace’s Main Avenue windows, Window Works features San Antonio-based artists whose projects activate the art-viewing experience from the street level, extending the dialogue about contemporary art beyond traditional gallery spaces. Support for Window Works is generously provided by the Texas Commission on the Arts and Artpace members.
