Alumna Hannah Frick ’11 has curated Post-Apocalyptic Blues: Mayan Tales from the Fiscal Cliff an exhibition at The Gallery at Fox Tax in Minneapolis. The exhibition features several CVA alumni including DC Ice ’03, Kyrie Kotlowski ’12, Joshua Mercil ’12, Katie Parr ’11, Jon Reischl ’98, and Jeremy Szopinski ’97.
As the exhibition is described, "At this point, various theories and beliefs that December 2012 will bring about an apocalypse of sorts are well known and pervasive. Talk of spiritual transformations, a new era, fiscal cliffs, pre-smartphone calendars and the ever-nearing end of the world dominates news, culture and conversation. Artists in this exhibition encompass these ideas by exploring themes of survival, new realities, other worlds, and the afterlife. Approaches vary from seriousness to lightheartedness, from sadness to humor. Painting, photography, sculpture, and mixed media are all represented in this eclectic group of work. Will this be the end or only just the beginning?"
The opening reception is Saturday, December 15, 2012 and not only will the eight participating artists be presenting their end-of-the-worldly views via photo, sculpture, painting and other mediums, but they will also be donating small works that will be wrapped as gifts and sold sight unseen for $100. Proceeds from these gift sales will be given to the American Brain Tumor Association. The exhibition runs through April 15, 3012.
