2019 Artist: Emily Hartley

"Gears of Time," a lithography by Emily Hartley, a Waukee artist who has been a part of the festival every year.

"As a person, I’m pretty spontaneous but as an artist even more so. Ideas come to me without warning and usually I have the urge to begin on them right away. Since many of my pieces aren’t that thought out, I typically don’t know what a piece is about until I finish it. A lot of my work is inspired by music, dance, language, and culture, especially those of eastern Asia. Time and space also play a heavy roll in my work as I’ve always had an interest in history and the ways in which we perceive and interpret space."
