"Reverberations" Opening This Saturday, Feb 28

Form+Content, Traffic Zone, and CVA Action are happy to announce the opening of "Reverberations" - the first juried show of former students from the College of Visual Arts. The opening reception is this Saturday, February 28th, from 6-9 pm in the warehouse district of downtown Minneapolis.

I'm the vice president of the CVA Action board, and we've done a lot of work to make this happen. (We're working to keep alive the community of artists who came out of CVA after it closed 2 years ago.) Lynda Monick-Isenberg (former Chair of the Foundation Department at CVA) has worked so hard on this show as well. We were honored to have the show juried by Kristin Makholm, the Executive Director at the Minnesota Museum of American Art. She narrowed down almost 350 pieces to the 40-some you can see in the show. I was happy to have been picked as one in the show, along with a few of the other CVA Action board members.

The show was hung in the 2 galleries on Sunday and Monday night, and I was there to help on Monday.

Wrapping up install at TZ: (l to r) Lynda, Sonja Olson (CVA Action board), Vesna from TZ, John Marshall
(former head of Photo at CVA for 12 years), and Ed Charbonneau (CVA Alumni and former faculty).

CVA Action Instagrammed this next photo, saying "Recognize these former CVA professors hanging the Reveberations show?"

Ed, John, Lynda, and Ellen (head of Photo at CVA for the final 2 years).

This isn't all the work in the TZ Gallery, but here are 2 overall shots:

I hung all of these except for the right one. (The lighting still needs to be adjusted.)

John and Ed hung all of these in record time.

Then I headed over to the F+C Gallery to see the rest of the show. There's a lot of work in this space, and it looks great! Here are 2 overall shots that only really show about half the art:

So stop by Form+Content (210 N 2nd Street, Mpls, 55401) and Traffic Zone this Saturday from 6-9 for the opening. There will be food and wine. And there will be an after party hosted by CVA Action at Bev's Wine Bar which is right next to TZ:

(with the arrow pointing to them) for Traffic Zone just to the left.

Hope to see you there! (Here's the official event page on Facebook if you'd like to join.)
