As a visual ode to the carefree and sultry days of summer, Stephanie Chefas Projects is turning up the heat in August with a group exhibit entitled HEATWAVEThe show will present works from eight artists who each convey a distinct voice and a brilliant adoration for sun, surf, and skin. 

Through the power of artistic expression, HEATWAVE celebrates a season that personifies escapism and outside culture. The sensation of sand between your toes, an idyllic romp in the green grass, a sweaty late night rendezvous--all this and more drips with newfound perspective via ceramic booty sculptures, vibrant paintings, paper cutouts and textiles.  

Featuring: Kelly Allen, Meegan Barnes, Laura Berger, Heather Day, Monica Kim Garza, Kate Klingbeil, Nathan McKee, and Kelly Ording

The opening reception for HEATWAVE will be held at Stephanie Chefas Projects on Friday, August 12th from 6-9pm. Stephanie Chefas Projects is located in Portland, Oregon at 305 SE 3rd Avenue on the second floor of the Urban Row building. The exhibition will be on view through September 3rd, 2016 and is free and open to the public.
