LIVE from the NYPL: OPENING NIGHT! Introducing SHEA HEMBREY
Shea Hembrey's spellbinding biennial, Seek, showcases 100 artists from around the world, all of whom were imagined by Hembrey himself.
SHEA HEMBREY grew up in rural Hickory Grove, Arkansas in a family of farmers, factory workers, hunters, trappers, musicians, and cockfighters. Though he has developed the majority of his craftmanship skills on his own, he has a varied formal art education, including an MFA from Cornell University and a year studying Maori art in New Zealand. His studio is now based in a sleepy town in New Jersey.
