Cairo will be hosting an exhibition of works on paper by Seattle musician and visual artist (and Cairo associate!) Emily Ann Pothast during the month of April. An opening reception will be held on Thursday, April 9 from 7 to 9 pm during the Capitol Hill Artwalk.
Before she became known as the frontwoman of the band Midday Veil, half of the installation-performance duo Hair and Space Museum and co-founder of the record label Translinguistic Other, Emily received an MFA in printmaking from the University of Washington.
Incorporating painting, drawing and collage into finely textured surfaces, Emily's works on paper reveal an interest in sacred geometry, metaphysics, and a host of visionary artists throughout history whose work encodes attempts to render elusive ideas like time, transcendence and eternity in two dimensions.
Emily has exhibited and performed at a number of local and national venues including Vignettes, Seattle University's Hedreen Gallery, Bumbershoot, and Family Business Gallery in New York.
