A special exhibition at Saint Anselm College’s Dana Center for the Humanities presents the paintings and sculpture of New York City artist, Emily Noelle Lambert with an opening reception on Wed., Nov. 10, 4:30 – 6 p.m. Lambert’s work will be on display in the Dana Center Alcove Galleries Nov. 10, 2021 – Jan. 9, 2022.

Fine Arts Professor Kimberly Kersey-Asbury curated the show while the Saint Anselm College Exhibition Team comprised of fine art students assisted in the layout and installation.

“I think Emily's work is very exciting. It has a lot of energy and so much joy,” says Professor Kersey-Asbury.  “Her work is grounded in painting. Even her sculptures are painterly, and paintings in turn sculptural. I think visitors to the show will be delighted by the range, a sense of play, and an element of surprise, from work to work.”

Speaking of her work, Lambert says, “I love swimming in a kind of visual mystery of things between abstraction, landscape and figuration. My work moves between large paintings, assemblages, and painterly sculptures. In my paintings play and experimentation propel my process. I am collaging pieces of experience, impression, memory sometimes literally with found objects other times recapturing a sense of place and space. I search for interactions between materials, colors and forms and often switch things up to keep my curiosity fresh.”
