Emma Jennings is the 2023 winner of the Burrinja Climate Change Biennale exhibition, People’s Choice Award for her work titled ‘Future Fighters’. Emma created this piece in her studio at Emma Jennings Gallery Olinda. It is an immersive experience for visitors, who can talk to Emma about her work in progress, materials and ideas. She is currently working on her exhibition piece for the 20th Anniversary of the Dandenong Ranges Open Studios, and a series of portraits to document the impacts and community resilience after the 2021 storms.
The Gallery is designed to make viewing and purchasing artwork and gifts a warm and inspiring experience, featuring not only Emma’s original art, but many beautiful gift ideas. Her work is meticulously reproduced onto archival prints, cards and textiles. Other gift ideas complement and inspire the work: vintage Japanese ceramics and textiles, hand dyed indigo notebooks, origami paper, papermaking kits and a beautiful collection of inspiring art books.
Emma believes art should be accessible to everyone, and has made a space that is warm and inviting, an inspiring feast for the eyes. You can find her in the gallery working on new paintings, chat to her about her materials and process, and be inspired by the beautiful views of the forest through the large light filled windows.
