Each year the David Trophia invites a guest curator to bring a group of artists together around a specific theme. This year each artist has been asked to design 5 cups inspired by Natural Disasters.
Opening shortly after ‘Superstorm Sandy’ impacted 24 states along the east coast, last years cup show; Source-Material: Water, included the option to donate to the Craft Emergency Relief Fund (CERF). This direct option made it easy for craft to make a difference. Springing from the upcoming anniversary of the storm, and hoping to make a greater difference in raising money for CERF, each artist has the option of donating the proceeds from one cup for CERF .
A solo exhibition, opening reception from 6-8 pm August 2. The Giving Chair will explore forms decorated with images of chairs. A relationship is formed between the chairs, their environment, and what a chair means to the viewer. What is the relationship amidst a person and a place of rest?
