About

Emery has exhibited throughout the United States as well as in England, Japan, Australia, Germany and France. In 1996 Emery had an acclaimed comprehensive retrospective exhibition at the New Orleans Museum of Art. In 1997 she completed an immense abstract kinetic sculpture for placement in Osaka, Japan and was awarded the Grand Prize for Public Sculpture in Japan. Emery also installed a major sculpture in the Zen Garden of the Hohen-in Temple in Kyoto, Japan. In Louisiana, her public commissions can be seen throughout the state at sites including the Louisiana State Library in Baton Rouge, Knight Oil Tools and The Neurological Hospital in Lafayette, the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden, the Renaissance New Orleans Arts Hotel and the Inter-Continental Hotel in New Orleans. Emery is the 2012 Ogden Museum of Southern Art’s Opus Award honoree and a 2013 winner of the biennial Kinetic Art Exhibition and Symposium.
