4th Street Vine is pleased to present the work of Emily Maddigan, on exhibit from June 12 through September 14th, 2013, with a special Artist’s Reception on Saturday, July 13th. The evening will also feature live music, DJs, food & vinyl for sale!

About Emily Maddigan: Emily Maddigan builds shabby armies of, weathered, hobbling, endearing, shedding, patched, propped up, and visceral maquettes. Small in scale but mighty in spirit, these figures surprise with their uncanny juxtapositions of beach trash, found wood scraps and all manner of detritus. Maddigan seeks out deals on misbegotten taxidermy via Craigslist and yard sales. Maddigan’s rescued and bedraggled animals go through an enchantment, and a redemption process. Encrusted and bedazzled with colored beads, sequins and pins these creatures now bear a blinged-out armor. 4th Street Vine is delighted to present Maddigan in her first solo show with the gallery entitled Memorable Mounts

Maddigan was born in southeast Detroit Michigan. Emily spent many hours of her childhood in the basement, building elaborate living quarters for her extensive doll collection. Emily is not intimidated by the size or duration of any project. She received a BFA from Michigan State University and continued on to receive an MFA from California State University Long Beach. Emily has shown her work in many states including: California, Oregon, Michigan, Massachusetts and New York. She has also completed a residency at the Armory Center for the Arts.
