Spring Forecast

featuring: Chris Teasley, Jeff Konigsberg, Dread Scott, Nuno de Campos

February 7 – March 1, 2003 -- Artist reception on Friday , February 7th, 5.30 to 7.30 pm
CLIFFORD • SMITH GALLERY is pleased to announce its February exhibition previewing a portion of its Spring 2003 season:

March 4 – March 29, 2003

Chris Teasley – Main Gallery – Opening Reception, Friday, March 7th, 5:30 – 7:30 pm.

Chris Teasley's first exhibition focuses on his current series of paintings that he calls "hyper realist abstraction". The seeming oxymoron is a deft reworking of the trompe l'oeil tradition employing the visual language and precision of a digital age with the inherently organic process of gestural painting. Chris Teasley is currently studying at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts.

Jeff Konigsberg – Main Gallery – Opening Reception, Friday, April 4th, 5:30 - 7:30 pm

In conjunction with the 2003 Southern Graphics Print Conference, Jeff Konigsberg develops a new suite of prints that will be exhibited beside a site specific wall installation. In these new pieces, the artist creates a literal and metaphorical digital/architectural vernacular of scale, volume and time.
