July 2012 Brings New Members

Welcome Matt Ziemke, Christina Day, and Alexis Nutini to NAPOLEON.

While we are sad to see three of our original members go on to greener pastures, we wish them well and ready ourselves for a phenomenal second year and the addition of three fabulous new artist members.

Matt Ziemke has an MFA from the Tyler School of Art in ceramics and is currently a resident at the Clay Studio.  His work “reflects the forms, structures, and processes that surround the location, extraction, and consumption of resources.”  Using clay, wood, vinyl, and a lot of ingenuity, Ziemke makes installations that seem to teeter on the brink of disaster. www.mattziemke.com

Christina P. Day has an MFA from Cranbrook in fibers and is faculty at MICA and the University of the Arts.  Her work pulls from the vernacular of everyday objects and interior spaces creating small and large sculptures with intense polish and high craft.  www.chrissyday.com

Alexis Nutini received an MFA from the Tyler School of Art in printmaking in 2005 and has been working in Philadelphia since.  Outside of editions on paper, Nutini works big panels of wood with painting, stencil, and more traditional printmaking techniques.  Nutini has talked about taking his skills as a theater and film set scenic painter into the NAPOLEON gallery for his upcoming show.  His work tends to deal with culture, identity, and his experience traveling. www.alexisnutini.com

In August, we will have a three-person show of our new members to introduce these artist to our audience.
