LeMieux Galleries are featuring a series of smaller Prospect.1.5 showcase exhibitions that focus on the works of artists originally from New Orleans and Louisiana who live in New York and California. Emily Sartor is the third and final artist in this series.

Emily Sartor was born in Monroe, Louisiana in 1975. She now lives and works in New York.

“These works are both freewheeling and sentimental. Each work tells a different story, but all describe the feeling of being both a part of,and at odds with, ones environment.  I approach painting as a collector, using found words and images to uncover shared sentiment. Though the works often tell stories of failure or longing they are triumphant. Triumphant because these are stories about creativity- messy,beautiful and full of uncertainty.” 
-Emily Sartor
