  • Second Thursday receptions: June 11 and July 9, 6-9pm

InLiquid presents Point of Reference, featuring the work of InLiquid artist member Eric Fausnacht and guest artist Woodley White, at The Hall at Crane Arts from June 11 – August 7, 2015. The works of both artists are based around themed studies, each using careful observation and documentation to uniquely capture the familiar.

Eric Fausnacht paints portraits of domestic fowl in a contemporary/pop/baroque style. His paintings of roosters and chickens are depicted in a photo-realistic style brought together with an ornate baroque background, illuminating the regal portraiture of the subject matter. Fausnacht is a Philadelphia artist based out of Bucks County Pennsylvania, whose work is in private collections throughout the United States, Europe, Canada, and Asia. After receiving a BSE in Art Education from Millersville University of Pennsylvania, Fausnacht continued his education at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and The Art Institute of Philadelphia. He has exhibited throughout the region, including Muse Gallery, Hicks Gallery, Bucks County Community College/Temple University and a numerous juried exhibitions. He is also a member of the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen and the Designer Craftsmen of Philadelphia.

Woodley White’s history with bottles began with purchasing colognes from vendors in the markets of Philadelphia. The experience of selecting and purchasing the fragrances in each bottle inspired Woodley to begin drawing these vessels dozens at a time. Over the years Woodley’s love for bottles has grown and developed artistically from pencil drawings on notebook paper to acrylic paintings on large canvases. Woodley continues to find new ways to express his passion for bottles and replications of other objects he values. Woodley is a member of CIS’s Outside the Frame (OTF) Studios and has exhibited work at the Philadelphia Brighter Futures Awards, Dick Blick, Fringe Salon, Swarthmore Library, and 40th St. Artists in Residence, Philadelphia. Woodley’s paintings were also featured in a solo exhibit at Halycon Floats in 2014.

KALI YUGA ZOO BRIGADE

zoo
  • August 3rd-23rd, 2015
  • Reception: Thursday, August 13th / Special Performance: August 22nd
  • The Icebox
  • Wednesday-Saturday 12-6pm
  • Free & Open The The Public

From August 3rd through the 23rd, the Icebox Project Space will be hosting the contemporary artist group Kali Yuga Zoo Brigade, a self-described band of artists, musicians, and culture saboteurs – a most serious collective of pranksters-cum-activists. Formed in late 2011, the Brigade is a small organization dedicated to the direct action of untrammeled creative expression. Hailing from a variety of backgrounds, individual members pursue independent enterprises but come together when opportunity arises to manifest beguiling circumstances at the confluence of art and performance in the public sphere. Having co-opted the structure of a military unit and transformed it into a vehicle of artistic action, we seek to draw even the most casual observers into our web of limitless freedom of thought and the thrilling psychic terrain it makes accessible to all. While dominant trends in contemporary art practice have skewed heavily into critical theory and practice, they engage the world and its occupants outside of hyper-intellectualized frameworks. The show will continue through much of August but be sure to join us on August 13th for Second Thursday, and on August 22nd for a special performance.

THE FOOL by JESUS BENAVENTE

ohhey
  • AUGUST 28th (Time TBA)
  • The Icebox
  • Free & Open To The Public

The Icebox Project Space is excited to present Jesus Benavente: The Fool, a new performance piece. Jesus Benavente is a Brooklyn-based artist who, in his own words, “isn’t afraid to dream big and look stupid”, and believes that sneaky jokes and false bravado help create a network of works that test and challenge our institutions and forms. The Fool features brash performances, funny videos and physical works that build on each other to create a night of live performances that will climax into a farewell dance party for an old friend.
