Emerson's work on display at Art Circle Public Library

CROSSVILLE — Camilla Staton Emerson is the featured artist at the Art Circle Public Library for the months of November and December. Emerson works in mixed media, acrylic, hand painted silk and oil.

Viewing the world as a “creative spirit” has taken Emerson on various journeys of growth and expression. She began her journey at a very early age and was greatly influenced by her mother who was a dress designer and seamstress, especially in the areas of design and texture. She worked for an architect firm as a design consultant and owned an art supply, frame shop and gallery. She has taught classes and workshops in colleges, schools and for organizations throughout Florida, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee. She has received many awards for her works of art and has been featured in art related articles and reviews throughout the country. Emerson has been represented in many Art Galleries in California, Florida, Ohio, and Michigan and has been an adjudicator for Fine Art shows both in Florida and Michigan.

After many years and accomplishments in the art world she is still on this endless adventure.  As a hands-on person, she started a faux painting business which included fresco and plaster wall sculpture in Florida.  After experiencing Hurricane Charlie, she and her husband came to the mountains to make their home. This area of Tennessee has given the artist the kind of beauty she missed in Florida. After living in many parts of the country, the change of seasons only enhances her expressions in art.  Her hope is the viewer will find the joy and emotion in her work. She now resides in Fairfield Glade and is a member of the Fairfield Glade Art Guild.

Emerson is available to teach classes in mixed media, watercolor and acrylic as well as hand painted silk. For more information or to contact her about a painting on display, contact her at her studio at 484-8660.

  • Gypsy Rose to visit Fair Park

    The Cumberland County Playhouse is currently performing the award-winning Broadway play “Gypsy.” A great American story set during the 1920s fading vaudeville circuit, "Gypsy" portrays the rise of famed burlesque performer and stage mother Gypsy Rose Lee as she journeys across the country with her mother and sister during a time when Vaudeville was dying and burlesque was born. The complex character of Rose could be described as bold and brassy, as she steamrolls everyone in her way to turn her daughters June and Louise into child stars.
