How does it feel to be showing your artwork in the Galleries at Moore? “Oh, it’s wonderful! There’s a lot of really good work here right now, so, it’s exciting to be in such a professional space. I was laughing because on Monday I had four people all helping me hang. I’m used to, you know, doing it all by myself.” Oh, yeah, DoN knows. “I’ve been dragging my boyfriend around, making him hold things for me. It’s really nice to have someone else with good opinions about how it should be hung. I’m hoping to really get my work out there and be in more exhibitions and that I’ll be able to spend more time making work instead of applying for exhibitions.” Holla!
DoN reminded Kay Healy about seeing her work at Art in City Hall. “This is great because it was in the Window on Broad at UArts and from that I was able to get into the Dysfunctional Furniture show at City Hall. And Leah Douglas from the Philadelphia International Airport saw it and she said, ‘Can I do a studio visit?’, I said, ‘Yeah!’, like, Oh Great!, real artists get studio visits! So, she dropped by and said, ‘OK, well, I have a forty foot case that I would like you to do for Summer 2012.’ That was about a year ago, so now, that’s my major project doing a forty foot version of this featuring a bathroom, a kitchen, dining room and a living room.”
The Center for Emerging Visual Artists (CFEVA), in cooperation with Moore College of Art & Design, presents an exhibition by the new Career Development Program Fellows. A highly selective fellowship with only a 2% acceptance rate, these six artists represent some of the most promising talent among emerging artists in the region: Leslie Friedman, Daniel Gerwin, Rebecca Gilbert, Kay Healy, Heechan Kim, and Johanna Inman.
