In conjunction with the Emile Norman Arts Foundation, COAST Big Sur is excited to host an exhibit with a unique selection of items and works from celebrated artist Emile Norman. Running through Memorial Day, each Norman piece on display at COAST will be carefully chosen from his personal collection of works in Big Sur and, usually, are not available for public viewing.
Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from 1 – 4pm, guests will have the opportunity to speak to a docent from the Emile Norman Arts Foundation to answer their questions about Norman’s life and work.
About Emile Norman
Emile Norman is best known for his intricate sculptures, mosaics, jewelry and panels using innovative techniques and a multitude of natural and man-made materials. In the 1950s, Norman developed his famous “endomosiac” technique using crushed glass, plastic, wood, epoxy and other materials suspended between acrylic sheets. This style was developed while was working on his commission for the Masonic Building in San Francisco, which would later become Norman’s largest and best known work.
