Emmett’s desire is to ensure that anyone who has not collected his work will be afforded an opportunity to purchase some of his work. Emmett has entrusted a large body of his work to the Skyblue Gallery. He has discounted a number of original pieces to support this effort and to raise funds for The Fulton Art Fair. The fair is near and dear to his heart he has exhibited at the fair since 1958.
