Riley, Jeremy Nichols, Jesse Hazelip, Ken Garduno, Marco Mazzoni, Max Kauffman, Meryl Pataky, Michael Alm, Paul Chatem, Peter Gronquist, Shawn Huckins, Souther Salazar, and Zoe Williams.
Stephanie Chefas Projects has been years in the making and is the result of a long road paved by dedication and passion. Chefas herself is a fervid art enthusiast as well as the founder of the online art publication Platinum Cheese. She has worked with some of the best and brightest names in today’s new contemporary art scene and her previous curatorial efforts have been featured in Juxtapoz and High Fructose Magazine.
“Fresh Brew” is not only a sly wink toward Chefas’ new surroundings (Portland aka the land of beer and coffee), but furthermore a bold new chapter in her ongoing adventures as a curator. Having previously organized notable group shows in partnership with galleries like Modern Eden out of San Francisco, Chefas intends to bring the same caliber of artists and quality of work to her namesake gallery here in Portland. She is absolutely thrilled to bookmark the end of one journey and the beginning of another with a new gallery that will feature fresh and cutting edge art on a monthly basis.
