New Faculty Exhibition at CFD


Melissa Furness – 131/208 constant acclivity (detail view 1) – painting: acrylic and oil on stretched canvas; dimensions: 60in (H) x 60in (L); date: 2012

The CFD will host a Fall 2014 Meet & Greet reception on Wednesday August 20, 12-1pm, featuring a new exhibition of creative work by Melissa Furness, Associate Professor, Painting /Drawing & Illustration Program in the College of Arts & Media.  Furness’ work has been most influenced by her experiences of travel, which have included artist residencies in the countries of Ireland, Hungary and Poland, and those in the U.S. in Berkeley, California and at Yaddo in New York. These experiences have inspired the strain of her current work, which is influenced by history and infused with personal narrative. Within the work, ruins are translated into dreamlike alternative worlds informed by overlapping histories of the artifact.  Furness is currently represented by Plus Gallery in Denver, Colorado and Archangel Gallery in Palm Springs, California, and is a member of A.I.R. Gallery in Brooklyn, New York.
