Completed while Emily was a Beertender working at 612Brew in NE Minneapolis, this piece shows a beer sitting on the bar, with the reflection casting a multicolored shadow in front of it. In the reference photo Emily used there was a large glare from the sunlight- which is reflected in this original collage by stacking bright white paper to make a dimensional star shape next to the glass.

The slightly transparent reflection on this original collage is made with painted tissue paper, and the bar is made to look like the bar at 612Brew, (which is made out of a repurposed bowling alley lane). Hidden in the bar are hand drawn images of hops and wheat, as well as a bumble bee and other similar small items. In the background there are a few games- added to represent the games available for guests at the brewery. Through the windows in the background you can see a food truck and the amphitheater where many different bands play in the summer months. Look closely and you can also find the intersection of Broadway and Central ave. with street lights and the neighborhood signage.

This original collage hangs at 612Brew, so check it out while enjoying your next beer there! It occasionally is taken down to spend two weeks at the Great Minnesota Get Together- in the 10,000 Beers Exhibit at the Minnesota State Fair.

Completed originals are scanned by Terry at Artist's Resource Group in NE Minneapolis, where his ever-improving technology has paved the way for textured reproductions. Currently EmLavArt's work is available as an original, flat canvas reproductions on gallery wrapped hand-cut bars, or limited-edition archival reproductions.
