Emerson Dorsch is proud to take part in the inaugural Seattle Art Fair, July 30 – August 2, 2015. Featuring works by Jenny Brillhart, Robert Thiele, and Frances Trombly.

Jenny Brillhart was born 1972 in Keene, New Hampshire. She receive a BFA from Smith College – Northhampton, MA. Then she went on to study painting and drawing at The Art Students League, NY. In 2003 she graduated from the The New York Academy of Art with an MFA in painting. She lives and works in Stonington, Maine.

Robert Thiele’s calm intensity emanates equally from his person and his works. An established figure in the South Florida art scene for more than forty years, Thiele sustains a remarkable studio practice that, first and foremost, builds on itself. In paintings that he calls wall constructions, he embeds found objects from the environment. He creates apertures through which we can see a hint of an object. The shape and translucency of the window is essential. The construction is about 5 inches deep, and if the sides are straight, then he wraps them in canvas, painted white.

Frances Trombly (b. 1976 Miami, FL, USA) is based in Miami, FL, United States. She received a Bachelors of Fine Arts from Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore, MD. She has exhibited nationally and internationally, including a solo project Frances Trombly: Over and Under at Locust Projects, Miami; Americana: Formalizing Craft at the Perez Art Museum Miami and united states at the The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Ridgefield, CT.

Her work has been featured in various publications including The New York Times, Art Papers, Sculpture Magazine, Surface Design Journal, and The Los Angeles Times. Trombly’s work is in the permanent collection of the Perez Art Museum, Miami and NSU Art Museum, Ft. Lauderdale, among others.
