group exhibition :: new art: 2015 south florida cultural consortium visual and media artists fellowship exhibition

aleister eaves artist talk :: thursday . september 17 . 12 pm

opening night :: friday . september 19 . 6:30 pm

Each year a consortium of Florida’s five county cultural councils awards 10 to 12 grants to visual and media artists residing in the five counties. In an era of shrinking support for individual artists these $7,500 and $15,000 grants are among America’s highest annual awards provided through a public competitive grant process. The exhibition presents recent works by these artists and also allows some of them to make new works on-site often with the assistance of FAU students. The 2015 edition of the exhibition marks the fifth time since 2001 that the exhibition has been presented by University Galleries. An illustrated catalogue published by the University Galleries will document the exhibition.

The works in the exhibition were selected by Mariela Acuna and Rod Faulds.

Artists: Loriel Beltran, Reed Van Brunschot, Aleister Eaves, Dara Friedman, Gonzalo Fuenmayor, Brookhart Jonquil, Sarah Knouse, Lucinda Linderman, Silvia Lizama, Janet Onofrey, Kerry Phillips, Sofia Valiente

The Schmidt Center Gallery is located at 777 Glades Road in Boca Raton, Florida.

april 7 - may 26, 2016 :: the studios of key west :: key west

multichannel video installation :: Le Soleil

reception :: thursday . april 7 . 6 - 8 pm

Through controlled exposure and poetic transformation, trauma can be reimagined and performed as a way of validating one’s experience and helping to heal psychological wounds. 

Further empowerment is reached upon completion of the abstract act and in seeing the memory presented within the physical world as a newly formed, artistic creation.

This multichannel video piece represents a specific traumatic event from the artist's past and their efforts to reshape its personal affect through performance.

The Studios of Key West is located at 533 Eaton Street in Key West, Florida.
