Emily Amy Gallery presents Ashley Anderson: Shinobi Marilyn

Ashley Anderson, Shinobi Marilyn, 30" x 30", Gold acrylic on paper
July 28 - September 1, 2012
EMILY AMY GALLERY is pleased to present our summer buy local feature for 2012, Ashley Anderson’s newly completed series, Shinobi Marilyn. The exciting new series consists of works in a variety of media including painting, drawing, digital collage, and animated gifs. The body of work was initially inspired by an online discovery of imagery embedded in a classic sega video game from 1987, entitled “Shinobi.” Convinced the appearance of Marilyn Monroe in the classic game was a posthumous tribute to Andy Warhol created by the game designer in 1980's Japan, Anderson sought to explore the subject further.

Banana Nutella Tartine on Farm Bread, chicken sausage and latte
My new favorite spot to grab a light breakfast, a lunchtime sandwich or a spot of tea while I write. Świt (break of dawn in Polish) just landed on the Westside a couple of months ago and is already garnering a loyal following among the residents as well as Westside businesses. Unlike the popular Octane across the street, Świt is quiet, bright and inviting. This European bakery and cafe serves up fresh baked breads, pastries, coffees, teas and sandwiches from the old country.  They take pride in the craftsmanship of their breads and baked goods which is evident upon first bite into any of their tasty treats.
Make sure to try this little gem the next time you’re in the Westside district.  Bring a good book and sip a cup of tea with cookies on the couch, plug in your computer and blog away (free wifi) at the community table or enjoy a sandwich or a pastry on the patio while you soak in the sun.  Świt Bakery and Cafe, a little bit of Europe in the heart of the South.
