Think of the Happiest Things by Artist Emily Harper Beard

August 25, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Think of the Happiest Things

The title, or theme, of this small body of work by Emily Harper Beard, is pulled from the song in Peter Pan, You Can Fly.

“Think of the happiest things
it’s the same as having wings
Let’s all try it, just once more
Look! We’re rising off the floor”

When asked to be a part of this show at The A-Frame, Beard – a working mama with little spare time – instantly knew she wanted to use the opportunity to create art simply because she enjoys creating art, not because the pieces had to be prolific, critiqued, or to point out some of the obvious f’d-up-ness in the world.

Beard’s desire with Think of the Happiest Things is to use this small platform she has to expand on the good in the world; to remind us all that there is ample amount of beauty in our day to day…and if today is a day you happen to need to see a flower, then she’s taken a little bit of time to paint – or, actually, “batik” – you a flower.

What is batik?
Batik is a cloth that is traditionally made using a manual wax-resist dyeing technique.
