Featured Exhibition Series

CFEVA and POST are pleased to feature several noteworthy exhibitions and events in all corners of the city, springing from ongoing collaborations with commercial galleries, local businesses, fellow arts organizations, educational institutions, and non-traditional studio spaces. Of the many corollary programs taking place throughout October, POST is proud to announce its 2016 Featured Exhibitions:

Nick Cassway merges a fine arts practice with commercial design, iconography, and illustration to create vibrant works with bold and impactful imagery. Coinciding with POST, “Above the Sounds of Ideologies Clashing” will transform CFEVA’s gallery into an immersive room-sized installation. Inspired by the story of Johannes Kelpius, the Hermit of the Wissahickon, Cassway’s custom designed wall coverings explore systems of belief through an evolving scene of an encounter between a believer and a skeptic.

 ArtBox at Shirt Corner

An exhibition of work by Kristin Schattenfield-Rein

August 1st – October 14th, 2016, Open during POST West

ArtBox @ Shirt Corner, 259 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106

Kristin Schattenfield-Rein’s paintings utilize various mediums (epoxy resin, glass, sand, graphite flake and silvered tar) to produce a layered, reticulative effect. Rein’s current work adheres, just barely, to the convention of wall hangings—they creep past their edges to become sculptural and suggestive of something beyond the obvious. Kristin’s work is on view in the Art Box street level window gallery located in Old City on the north side of Market Street just east of 3rd Street.

Ben Volta (Certificate ‘02) creates intricate public murals and sculptures, working at the intersection of education, restorative justice, and urban planning. His practice stands on the belief that art can be a catalyst for change, within individuals as well as the institutional structures that surround them.

His exhibition in the Alumni Gallery at PAFA will draw from multiple projects created with students and recently incarcerated youth throughout the city. These projects use a collaborative drawing process to generate complex wholes that are more than the sum of their parts.

“Philadelphia artists like me are thriving in their careers by using a creative approaches to marketing their artwork and funding their projects. I am leveraging the popularity of the well-established Philadelphia Open Studio Tours program to bring new audiences to Twenty-Two Gallery. I have designed special POST weekend events, all free and open to the public. Your audience will want to know!

I used Kickstarter for two successful fundraising and client-base-building campaigns in 2013 and 2014. The woodcut that I am offering at the business card drawing is one of my 2014 Kickstarter “rewards”. Most artists cannot depend on just gallery sales to make a sustainable living as an artist.   Most artists need to think outside-the-box to create opportunities for themselves.   I think it would make a great segment. Thanks for your consideration!” – Andrea Krupp

“Visit during POST Weekend, October 11 and 12, and and receive special discounts on every piece in Andrea Krupp‘s exhibition. Take $50 off framed artwork over $300, $20 off framed artwork under $300.

Out of Hand

Out of Hand, Gina Michaels at iMPeRFeCT Gallery

Blue Fingers, bronze, 22 x 17 x 14″, Rushen (detail), bronze, 20 x 13 x 10″

Out of HandGina Michaels’ solo show at iMPeRFeCT Gallery

October 12 – November 2, 2013, Artist’s Reception Saturday, Oct. 12, 2013 5:00-8:00pm

From the beginning, Gina Michaels sculpture is Out of Hand. Her sculpture practice starts in a sandbox. She presses her hands (and feet) into casting sand, sculpting directly in the mold. She then ladles molten bronze directly into the hollows created by the body. The resulting forms are welded into “Hand Plants,” at once animal, vegetable and mineral. They can be read as lovingly cultivated hybrids, or as random and disturbing mutations. The work is full of visual puns and double entendres, with a dose of slapstick. Sometimes modeled figures perch in trees that grow out of the palm of a hand, adding a narrative, mythic dimension. The work can be as small as a few inches high, or eight feet tall. In addition to creating sculpture, Michaels makes nature prints, which will also be on view.

Gina Michaels work will be at iMPeRFeCT Gallery in Germantown from October 12 – November 2. There will be an artist’s reception on Saturday October 12, 5:00 – 8:00 P.M. iMPeRFeCT Gallery is a not-for-profit alternative art space that is both international and community based. Founders Renny Molenaar and Rocio Cabello bring their experience running alternative spaces in New York, contributing a new voice to the Philadelphia art community.

Gina Michaels artwork has been featured in solo and group exhibitions throughout the United States, including Paula Barr Chelsea Gallery, Ceres Gallery, and the Prince Street Gallery in New York City; Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, New Jersey; the Woodmere Art Museum, City Hall, Fairmount Park and Projects Gallery in Philadelphia; and the El Paso in Palm Desert, California. Additional information about the artist and her work can be found at www.ginamichaels.com.

iMPeRFeCT Gallery info: 5601 Greene Street, Philadelphia PA 19144. Gallery hours: Wednesday – Saturday 1:00 – 6:00pm. The gallery will also be open 1:00 – 6:00 on Sunday October 20 for POST 2013,  Philadelphia Open Studio Tours
