Art: American Idols at Fabricate

On Saturday the hip gallery/shop Fabricate in Northside opens a new exhibition of work by SCPA visual-art students entitled 'American Idols.' The students used iconic contemporary art figures like Chuck Close as a springboard for solutions in digital art

Young artists in Cincinnati can be educated through the renowned art and design programs at a number of our local colleges. But before that, some of our art students are getting a head start at the School for the Creative and Performing Arts.

On Saturday, the hip gallery/shop Fabricate in Northside opens a new exhibition of work by SCPA visual-art students entitled American Idols. With teachers like local installation artist Alice Pixley Young guiding these young minds, the students are being introduced to sophisticated art techniques and conceptual underpinnings at a young age. The students used iconic contemporary art figures like Chuck Close as a springboard for solutions in digital art and painting that delve into the sources of personal and celebrity identities.

Stop by this weekend to see the next generation of visual artists in Cincinnati. Meet and greet with the students 5-7 p.m. on Saturday, with DJing by PROJECTMILL from 7-11 p.m.
