Emily Peck

Join us for our May Art Gallery Opening Reception. This month we are pleased to be featuring the artwork of Emily Peck!

The artist will be on hand to talk about her work and process, light snacks will be served and, as always, our bar will be open.

▶︎ About the Artist ◀︎

“Emily Peck was born in Roehampton, England; she immigrated to the US with her mother. Emily has lived and worked in Santa Fe for the past five years pursuing her Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Studio Arts at The Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA), with an emphasis in silversmithing and photography. Her background includes a multitude of multidisciplinary elements including sculpture, woodwork, mixed-media, and film. In the summer of 2018, Emily completed a three-month internship with the Walt Disney Company as a Walt Disney Imagineering intern in Glendale, California. Emily currently applies her skills of stone setting and fabricating decorative pieces with award-winning precious metals artist, Gregory Segura. After graduation, Emily plans to publish a photography book based on the aesthetics of metal signage from the 1940s-1990s.”

This exhibit will feature photography, capturing the timeless atmosphere of hand-fabricated and painted neon signs from the 1930s through to the late 1990s, as well as jewelry demonstrating the artist’s influences as a silversmith.

The show will remain up for the month of May; we feature a different art show monthly, with an opening reception on the first Thursday of the month!

    I was surprised last night when Air New Zealand went to the internet to invite me down for a visit… to help me finish my book. I cannot say I was not tempted.  New Zealand is a beautiful place.   As it happens, I have already visited there a number of times.   I’ve been to Auckland […]

  • An Ending

    The last night, the last show.   After eight epic seasons, HBO’s GAME OF THRONES series has come to an end. It is hard to believe it is over, if truth be told.   The years have gone past in the blink of an eye.  Can it really have been more than a decade since my manager […]

    Aside from the idiocy on the internet, what else has been going on of late? Well, I went to LA to moderate the Q&A at the premiere of the new TOLKIEN biopic in Westwood.  The picture is lovely, by the way, and I had a great time.   Got to meet Nicholas Hoult and the lovely […]
