Fernwey is pleased to present “Dogger, Fisher, German Bight”, an exhibition of new work by Peter Power. Please join us and the artist for an opening reception on Friday February 10th, from 6-9pm at 916 N Damen Avenue, Chicago.
Peter Power, born in Galway, Ireland, 1962, received a BFA from the National College of Art and Design, Dublin (1987) and an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (1993). He was also the recipient of a D.A.A.D scholarship and studied at the Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf, Germany. His sculptural and print based work has been described as “an awkward mix of exacting process, idiosyncratic mess and spiritual or aesthetic ambiguity and doubt”. He has exhibited in his native Ireland, continental Europe, China and through out the United States. Power lives and works in Chicago where he is an Associate Professor in the Department of Printmedia at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
