Pougialis Fine Art Award Exhibition: Opening Reception

Saturday, September 16, 2017 at 4:00pm to 8:00pm

The Arcade 618 S Michigan Ave, 2nd Floor, Chicago, IL 60605

Please join us for the opening reception of the 2016 Pougialis Fine Art Award Exhibition. DEPS is pleased to feature the work of 2016 winners Abena Motaboli and Ty Wubbenhorst. The Pougialis Fine Art award is a yearly competition that offers promising fine art students at Columbia College Chicago an opportunity to study as an apprentice with an established artist of national and international standing for one semester, a cash award, and a two-person exhibition.

The exhibition weaves explorations of presence, place, and memory through process-based material investigations. Sharing an interest in residual artifacts of the ephemeral, the artists situate their work as sites of poetic meaning making. Throughout the duration of the show, open collaboration, discussion, and experimentation will take place, blurring the contexts of gallery and studio.
