Phoenix, AZ (APRIL 24, 2008) -- Bragg's Pie Factory, 1301 Grand Avenue, will be hosting several local artists (Fausto Fernandez, Promise Tangeman, Chris Miller, Tawni Shuler) who work in a range of mediums including collage, photo transfers and painting during the May 2nd First Friday artwalk, from 6 - 10 PM. The exhibit is part of a series of exhibits in which Bragg's Pie Factory co-owner Beatrice Moore has invited a local artist (in this case Fausto Fernandez) to display their work alongside other artists of their choosing. So instead of being removed from the final curatorial outcome, the invited artist-curator becomes part of the final exhibit as well as the catalyst for the context in which their work is exhibited.

"Universal Data Box" 2008 19.5x8.5x8.5


This year for the 2008 Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (SMOCA) Benefit, artists, designers and architects were asked to think outside the box and to create a one-of-a-kind box for their silent auction. The unique boxes will be on display for guests to view and purchase on Saturday, April 26, 2008 at the Mondrian Hotel.

Installation at the ASU Art Museum.

Throughout josh six-week residency, josh green worked closely with the museum installation staff where I work. This project includes out crew Stephen Johnson, Chris Miller and Fausto Fernandez. Ordinarily displaying our work at the museum would be against museum policy as it represents a "Conflict of Interest," but in this particular case it was Ok'd to have it displayed as our work within the space is considered Josh Green Project.
