Jonathan Hopson is thrilled to announce representation of Houston artist Emily Peacock.
Emily is the first artist to join the gallery program as it enters its second year as Jonathan Hopson. We look forward to working with Emily to advance her practice and support her in what has already been a illustrious career.
"Emily is an artist I have long admired. We met and became friends while she was still in grad school finishing her masters at U of H," remarked Director, Jonathan Hopson. "She was the first artist I asked to have a solo exhibition at Hello Project and she was the first artist I asked when we bought our new space. I think we both know each other well enough to know we can definitely count on each other that is what I want gallery representation to mean at Jonathan Hopson."
