First Friday: February 2019
5:00 pm–7:00 pm
118 E. College Street, Iowa City
Join us for Happy Hour + Art at the next Stanley Museum of Art First Friday reception at FilmScene! Stanley First Fridays provide an ideal chance to usher in your weekend, enjoy the work of local artists, and mingle with other art-enthusiasts.
Our February First Friday features Emily Jalinsky, Program Coordinator and instructor at IC Press Co-op, housed at Public Space One, Iowa City, IA.
Addressing the state of mind in which art is made and how art affects a viewer’s mental state is one of Emily Jalinsky’s main objectives with her delicate works on paper, assemblages, and "printstallations." She engages with mindfulness as a meditative act in the studio as well as visually depicting mindfulness in the body and surrounding spaces through organic forms and repetitive patterns. Emily received a BFA in printmaking in 2012 with an emphasis in intaglio etching and expanded media from the University of Kansas. She now lives and works in Iowa City as an artist and arts organizer. She was selected for the Iowa Women’s Art Exhibit at the State Capital in 2017 and has had numerous solo exhibitions, most recently at CSPS Hall, Cedar Rapids, IA.
First Fridays are free and open to the public with complimentary popcorn and a cash bar.
