Cigar Box show

April 2nd – May 20th, 2021

K Space Contemporary is pleased to announce a new art exhibition: The Cigar Box Show. The exhibition features reimagined, reconstructed, and redesigned cigar boxes by 55 local and regional artists. 

Last year, hundreds of cigar boxes were donated to K Space Contemporary. They came in all shapes and sizes – large, small, most made of wood, some metal, some cardboard and some with small compartments, a few built for only one cigar. The gift was a treasure trove of creative possibilities! We put the word out and over sixty artists answered the call by painting, collaging, and drawing on them, breaking them apart, carving into the wood, adding found objects or ceramic components, or reforming them into sculpture.  

Participating artists include Cynthia Alvarez, Tiffany Anderson, Tony Armadillo, Jennifer Arnold, Mark Aubrey, Meg Aubrey, Elizabeth Bryson, Amy Burkart, Amanda Burns, Zeth Carrillo, Michael Casarez, Jalyn Casarez, Whitney Castillo, Taylor Cravey, A. Curran, Javier Esquivel, Irma Garcia, Nola Guajardo, Matthew Guillen, Bailee Hazelwood, Laura Jimenez, Louis Katz, Masha Keen, Payton Koranek, Andrea Labrador, Kathleen Mekailek, Catrina Mitchell, Cheryl Votzmeyer, Gerald Lopez, Philana Oliphant, James R. Pace, Matt Peterson, Shelly Porter, David Ramirez, Elise Reichenbacher, Patricia Reinhardt, Clay Reuter, Greg Reuter, Lars Roeder, Barry Rogers, Julie Rogers, Ricardo Ruiz, Marisa Sanchez, Kelly Schaub, Raychelle Schaudies, Becky Smith, Eugene Soliz, Jamie Speck, Amy Sullivan, Lyra Suttle, Nora Verdin, Day Wheeler, Debra Williams, Sarah Wright
