Hours: Wednesday – Sunday 12 – 6 pm

Utilizing the grand scale and unique feel of the Icebox Project space, CFEVA’s Career Development Program Fellows exhibit large scale site-specific installations, sculpture, printmaking, painting, drawing, photography, video, and performance. Fellows exhibiting are: Noah Addis, Arden Bendler Browning, Lewis Colburn, Don Edler, Laureen Griffin, Jordan Griska, Ana B. Hernandez, Mami Kato, Allison Kaufman, Daniel Kornrumpf, Maggie Mills, Tim Portlock, Alison Stigora, Jennifer Williams, Kimberly Witham, and Bohyun Yoon.

These artists address a diverse range of issues and ideologies through a variety of materials and presentation strategies. Issues surrounding public space, urban development and decay, repurposing materials, and life and death are explored in surprising ways. Additionally, artists push the boundaries of artistic tradition through unusual and unexpected approaches to traditional genres such as still-life and portraiture. For example, Lewis Colburn will be seated atop a 15-foot wooden tower where he will be typing War and Peace by Tolstoy during a performance at the opening reception. Tim Portlock exhibits large scale prints of decaying urban cityscapes created using 3D gaming software. Alison Stigora presents a looming sculpture made from burnt wood swirling 13 feet into the air. And, Kimberly Witham shows photographs of still life’s she has created with dead creatures and décor.
