Cathedral by Alexa Brooks

Graphite on Paper
Curated by René Treviño
November 12-December 31, 2010
Main Gallery

Opening reception, November 12, 2010, 6 to 9pm

A group exhibition of artists who employ graphite on paper in their practice, this exhibit will be a celebration of drawing. Since this show is using Graphite on Paper as it’s thematic current, preliminary drawings, sketchbooks, doodles as well as refined and “finished” works will be included. Matted and framed work under glass will hang beside sculptural work, video pieces and drawings that are thumb tacked to the walls. Graphite and paper are merely the starting point. The goal is an exhibit that has a wide breadth of approaches to the materials…humble materials that everyone has a basic understanding of, but materials that hold infinite possibilities.

Participating artists:

Alexa Brooks
Amanda Burnham
Todd Frye-Matte
Gary Kachadourian
Michelle La Perriere
Jan Razauskas
Juan Rodas
Matthew Shelly
Molly Springfield
Justin Storms
Elena Volkova
Tanya Ziniewicz
Lu Zhang

Towson University MFA Exhibition
Opening Reception
Artists: Amy Boone-McCreesh, Amy Klainer, & Michael Moore

Amy Boone-McCreesh: Fake Fancy
Boone-McCreesh explores the cultural lines between functional items and decoration. Utilizing found objects, second-hand fabrics, celebratory ephemera and other assorted materials, the artist creates two-dimensional and three-dimensional works that reference decoration, reitual and the artificial nature and purpose of art itself.

Amy Klainer: Tag
Klainer's work originates from an interest in urban decay, as well as, graffiti-covered architectural surfaces. Klainer first creates a series of drawings which reference the twisted metal of broken down subway cars, a common site for graffiti. She combines these drawings with mechanical elements into jewlery format.

Michael Moore: Serious Plans
Moore begins all of his projects as drawings, whether they end as digital interactions, animations, prints, collage or sculpture. These environments, their inhabitants and relations, serve as a psychic mirror and a virtual space where the viewer observes a distant world.

The gallery is located on the second floor of the Center for the Arts. Admission is free and open to the public.
