“I’m so excited about this group!”, said Amie Potsic, Director of Career Development at CFEVA, to DoN at the V.I.P. reception 2/1/12 for Introduction 2012 in The Galleries at Moore. “I think they’re fantastic and they’re all really go getter, hard working artists. Which you have to be these days.”
“We are absolutely thrilled, we have six new artists who begin this month and they’re beginning the two year fellowship with us and we have a really talented group. A great variety of mediums, styles and backgrounds but everything really makes sense together. I think quality somehow makes everything hang beautifully together. That’s a defining quality of CFEVA artists is the level of craft is always really high, the level of intention in their work is really strong.”
“Johanna Inman has wonderful photographic work that she actually creates without a camera. These are all created from flatbed scanners. Her father has an antique book collection he’s had for years and years (which she scans) and that’s why you have this level of detail and why it’s so flat at the same time. It’s just incredible how much detail she gets out of the image, the same with the book on the other side with a full page spread, those are all made on a flatbed scanners. She has a number of bodies of work, where she takes real objects rather than photographing them she uses scanning technology.”
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.
