Gregory Euclide, "It took something local to support the fiction," mixed media, 18 x 24 x 9.5 in., 2011

Jerome Foundation Fellowship for Emerging Artists for 2011-2012.

Since 1981, the Jerome Foundation has generously funded this fellowship program to significantly advance, artistically and critically, emerging visual artists in Minnesota. This past month the members of the Jerome selection panel–Bruce Charlesworth, assistant professor of film, video, and new genres at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee; Miki Garcia, executive director of Contemporary Arts Forum Santa Barbara; and Cherise Smith, associate professor of art history and African and African diaspora studies at the University of Texas, Austin–reviewed a total of 236 applications.

The two works that Euclide presented to the selection panel will be available at the PULSE Contemporary Art Fair in Miami, December 1 – 4, 2011.  David B. Smith Gallery will be in booth A-103.  Please visit us at the fair or contact the gallery for further information and availability.

We are also proud to share that Gregory Euclide is currently featured on MN Original.  You may visit their site to view a short video with the artist.

Ricky Allman, Nerman Museum

Overland Park, KS – The Charlotte Street Foundation Fellows – 2011 exhibition opens in the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art at Johnson County Community College, Friday, September 9th from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. Lectures by the three featured artists begin at 7:00 p.m. in the museum’s Hudson Auditorium. Both the reception and lectures are free and open to the public.

Artist Ricky Allman was born and raised in Utah, and his paintings reflect the geographical environment, mountainous landscapes and Mormon architecture of his upbringing. His most recent paintings incorporate Modernist architectural structures, as well as areas of gestural painting and exuberant color.

“For the Charlotte Street Foundation exhibition I am continuing my exploration of the natural and built environment. Looking through the lens of my personal religious disaffection, I am making work about the hope I have for the future of humanity via the new explosion of knowledge, science and technology we are now entering. We live in a rapidly changing and increasingly complex society which I once believed was destined for an apocalyptic demise. Coming to understand the enormous amount of innovation now occurring in human thought and progress, I am much more optimistic,” said Allman….

Kim Keever’s large-scale photographs are created by meticulously constructing miniature topographies in a 200-gallon tank, which is then filled with water. These dioramas of fictitious environments are brought to life with colored lights and the dispersal of pigment, producing ephemeral atmospheres that he must quickly capture with his large-format camera. A combination of the real and the imaginary, they document places that somehow we know, but never were.
