Emily.

Emily's works, both written and visual, reflect her constant striving towards full authenticity in her works and her daily interactions, releasing the biases placed on us by society both conscious and unconscious, eliminating the fears and anxieties each situation creates, letting go of the tendency to please others, and bearing the beautiful and the ugly, the mundane and the profound, and every other concept of duality found in this reality. She specializes in creating mixed-media contemporary statement pieces depicting the paradoxical concepts of the human experience, and feels most inspired when interacting with other creatives and discussing how to improve the world and community.

The story, so far...

Emily Little is an eclectic visual artist, writer, and organizer of community events with over four years of experience in the Charlotte arts community. She is an active exhibiting artist in Charlotte, most recently recognized by her second project for Charlotte’s annual BOOM Festival, titled “Harmonize In Real Time”, a live painting collaboration between 10 local artists curated by Little. Little is also recognized by her 2023 “Tiny Doors to Nowhere…(or Somewhere)” installations featured in the Charlotte International Arts Festival’s 100 Tiny Things exhibit. There she displayed seven uniquely charming doors constructed of balsa wood and clay only five inches tall, found intertwined with nature in Ballantyne’s Backyard and viewed by thousands of CIAF attendants. In 2023 Little also directed her first collaborative piece with her original concept “A Sunday Afternoon in Charlotte” installation for CLT BOOM, displaying the works of 23 individual local artists to create one large 10’ x 6’ recreation of Georges Seurat’s “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte.” The collaboration was installed at Camp North End for the duration of the BOOM festival and viewed by hundreds of attendees. Little has also had her quote displayed on the front steps of the Mint Museum from 2021 to 2022 reading “There is no rhyme or reason, your purpose is only to experience” taken from her submission to Charlotte’s 2021 “Of Earth and Sky” exhibit and also featured in her published poetry book entitled “Distorted Unity.” Little’s works, both written and visual, reflect her constant striving towards full authenticity in her works and her daily interactions, releasing the biases placed on us by society both conscious and unconscious, eliminating the fears and anxieties each situation creates, letting go of the tendency to please others, and bearing the beautiful and the ugly, the mundane and the profound, and every other concept of duality found in this reality. She specializes in creating mixed-media contemporary statement pieces depicting the paradoxical concepts of the human experience, and feels most inspired when interacting with other creatives and discussing how to improve the world and community. Little is passionate about her community, as well as sustainability, motivated to maintain a clean and healthy community through her regular volunteer work. She hosts monthly community trash cleanups through her community organization CLT Growth, incorporates reusing and recycling of materials into her artworks, and hopes to do so on a larger scale, generating as little waste as possible.
