We’ve fallen in love with the muted work of Bmore artist Emily Hines. Her show, Up from Here, opens tonight at the Light Gallery on St. Paul. The show features her painting, installation and delicate collage work, which will be on view until February 15.

“The artwork you’re being presented with emerges from an ongoing spiritual dialog rooted in a sense of personal losses,” Hines said about her work. ” Making it has enabled me to function, to grieve and to feel complicity for future work…They ratify for me and consequently, for others, the validity of a person’s spiritual and emotional experience.  They say, ‘here I simply am.’ “
