Featuring new works by: Emily Braswell and Jenna Rees
Presented and Curated by: Joe Dreher AKA JOEKINGATL

DAYTONA is a collaborative show by Emily Braswell @strawberriemilk_ and Jenna Rees @warmmilkwithsugar. This body of work is an abstracted narrative of an impromptu road trip with a destination determined by digital chance (asking Siri, “heads or tails?”). The show explores themes of currency and sexuality with a relatable touch on today’s idiocies.

The Real Milk Studios

The Real Milk Studios is a collaboration between two Atlanta based artists, Emily Braswell and Jenna Rees, under the art aliases of strawberriemilk_ and warmmilkwithsugar. The shared brand acts as a platform for all of their creative collaborations. It is also the informal title of their common studio space in the Historic Fourth Ward neighborhood.

 OPENING ANNOUNCMENT

OPENING ANNOUNCMENT

Braswell and Rees have been a duo since 2010 when they met at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts (UNCSA). It was there that they began their artistic dialogue. Rees then received a BFA degree from Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), while Braswell attended University of North Carolina Charlotte (UNCC) obtaining a BA. After pursuing their work independently, Rees in New York and Braswell in Charlotte, the duo felt compelled to reconnect and focus on pursuing their art and collaborative endeavors in Atlanta.
