About the Artist

Daniel Embree is an artist, writer, arts administrator, and educator in New York City. He graduated with a BFA in studio art from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, in 2009 and a MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University in Boston, Massachusetts, in 2013.

As an artist and writer, his work explores personal and community narratives, often growing out of his research on topics such as sexual orientation, ritual and religious identity, and, more recently, New England folk magic.

He has exhibited work in various venues across New England, including the Fitchburg Art Museum in Fitchburg and Fourth Wall Project in Boston. He has also shown work internationally in Strasbourg, France; Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic; and Montréal, Canada. He has been a resident at the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, VT and the Full Tilt Print Studio in Hyde Park, MA. In 2014-2015 he served as the president of the Monotype Guild of New England, a national nonprofit organization that promotes interest in unique prints. His art can be viewed online at dembree.com and at 13 Forest Gallery in Arlington, Massachusetts.

Embree is the Manager of National Programs at the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, the nonprofit organization that presents the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. He works with various program partners to provide recognition and support for 7-12 grade artists and writers.
