Visual artist Emily de Araújo, known for her drawings, installation practices and use of unusual media, will give an artist talk on Saturday, Feb. 10, 6 to 7:30 p.m., at the South Pasadena Arts Council’s SPARC Gallery in South Pasadena. The event, open to the public, is being held in conjunction with Emily de Araújo—Works on Paper, currently on exhibit at the SPARC Gallery through Feb. 23.

de Araújo, whose new works are rooted in her own unfinished prints, stencils and collage remainders, describes her techniques as the natural outgrowth of her early training as a printmaker, reminiscent of the cut-outs of French modernist Henri Matisse. Her national and international solo exhibitions include The Age of Revolution at Side Street Projects, Pasadena, California; Negative Space at Gallery 825, Los Angeles, California; Drawings/Text at Stiftung Futur, Rapperswil, Switzerland; Holes and Shadows at the Urban Institute of Contemporary Art, Grand Rapids, Michigan; and Dirty Bombs e Outras Idéias at Casa do Brasil, Madrid, Spain.

Emily de Araújo–Works on Paper was organized by Claudia Bohn-Spector, founding partner at South Pasadena-based curatorial design firm MICRONAUT. The SPARC Gallery is located at 1121 Mission Street, South Pasadena, CA 91030. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Friday, 10am-5pm or by appointment. Admission is free, but visitors are asked to call ahead: (626) 441-2339.
