She Sweeps with Many-Colored Brooms: Paintings and Prints by Emily Mason Opens

November 22 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

She Sweeps with Many-Colored Brooms’: Paintings and Prints by Emily Mason (November 22, 2020-March 21, 2021) takes its title from the opening line of a beloved poem by one of her favorite writers—Emily Dickinson. Characterized by brilliant hues laid down in thin layers of varying transparency, often superimposed in surprising color combinations, Mason’s work is the result of a rare alliance between spontaneity and premeditation. The Bruce Museum exhibition showcases her earliest experiments in oil on paper and in printmaking. In the decade from 1958 to 1968, she searched for ways to manipulate oil paint in order to produce a variety of effects and gain mastery of her medium, while searching for her unique artistic voice.
