Julia Blaukopf is a social artist and photographer who focuses on the work of creatives and innovators in Germany to craft visual narratives that speak to the story behind each subject.  She fuses the images with various materials including wallpaper, glass disks, shells, and fabric to create installations that speak to documentary and design.

Elizabeth Crisman’s work contemplates man’s evolution, both in reference to the human body and the tools used.  In response to her experience volunteering at the Kfar HaHoresh excavation site in Israel, she addresses these ideas through the use of ceramic pieces made from plaster molds and photo based mediums.

This exhibition is curated by Amie Potsic.

Center for Emerging Visual Artists [CFEVA]’s Alumni Travel Grant Program helps its alumni take advantage of opportunities involving travel that could have a significant, positive impact on their work.  Examples include apprenticeships, use of a particular facility such as a world-class foundry or print shop, residencies and international workshops, and other specific projects involving travel. This exhibition will feature photographs and installations inspired by the experiences each artist had while traveling in Germany and Israel.
