Things are getting heavy
I have been informed over the course of the last month or so that I have been nominated as a Semi-Finalist in multiple artist competitions around Maryland. First, is the Sondheim Prize in Baltimore, and secondly, the Bethesda Painting Awards as well. Be on the lookout for things to come in April and beyond. This is going to be a great spring.

Unlikely Places
Towson University Summer Artscape Exhibition
July 6—August 7th, 2010

Reception: Saturday, July 17, 2010 · 1:30—4 pm The Holtzman MFA Gallery, Center for the Arts, Towson University Free and Open to the Public.

Gallery Hours: Tuesday—Saturday, 11 am – 4 pm

Artists: Timothy Horjus, Gary Kachadourian, Cyle Metzger, Juan Rodas, Chloe Watson, and Adam Weir

Unlikely Places features artists who deal with place as a focus of interest. Whether it is an impossible imaginary place as in Juan Rodas’ underwater cityscape or a seemingly ordinary space as in Gary Kachadorian’s life-size photo-copied wall prints, the places these artists portray are filled with ambiguity, mystery, and wonder, and they often defy logic. The meaning of place is constantly changing, depending on the viewer, and is always being filtered through each individual’s previous experiences and history. A place is a location, real or imagined, with definite or indefinite borders. Casual expressions such as “being in place,” “out of place,” and “took place” point to the importance we give to a particular space. An ongoing question for visual artists has been how to portray a three-dimensional world on a two- dimensional surface. The artists in this exhibition find their own solutions to this age-old quest. The exhibition includes art in a variety of media, including a site-specific wall drawing.
