Towson University MFA Exhibition Opening Reception Artists: Amy Boone-McCreesh, Amy Klainer, & Michael Moore
Amy Boone-McCreesh: Fake Fancy http://www.amyboonemccreesh.com/ 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 http://www.miketmoore.com/ 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.
