Williamson County Parks and Recreation (WCPR) invites the public to attend an Artist Reception for Emily Little on Friday, June 7 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Williamson County Enrichment Center, 110 Everbright Ave, in Franklin. The reception is being held in conjunction with the Franklin Art Scene, a free monthly event held the first Friday of each month.
Emily Little of Little E Studio is a self-taught mixed media artist based in Nashville, Tennessee, who uses layer upon layer of color and texture to create works of intentional joy. Needing a creative outlet after leaving her teaching career, Emily took a weekend abstract art class with some friends. The class helped Emily overcome her inhibitions because it emphasized expression over perfection. Armed with the knowledge that there are no mistakes, only layers, Emily began painting every day.
Her original work can now be found in fine art galleries and curated boutiques in Tennessee, Alabama and Florida as well as juried art shows. Her fresh palette and unique style have also been featured on home decor, gift and seasonal lines through Creative Co-op, a wholesale company that licenses select images for its products. This successful collaboration has allowed Emily’s bright and happy artwork to grace homes all over the world. The Enrichment Center exhibit will be on display in Franklin through August 12.
