The blog and meself has been overly dull of late due to the old proverb being true: all work and no play make Jack a dull boy. Since coming back from my peru trip in late January, I’ve been busy making selects, scans, toning, exhibition prints, and sequencing, and a small fruit of my labor gestates fully this Thursday at a fabulous group show of 12 DC/Baltimore artists opening at the Art Museum of the Americas in the name of Corridor, as in I-95, that concrete umbilical cord that connects charm city to , um, DC. I’ve got 13 pieces in the show, half of which are new and never to be seen before, thanks to the fact that I haven’t updated my website since c. 1999. (Had to rush the materiel to the copyright office, don’t ya know, before Richard Prince absconds with it).
I previewed a small bit of the show and couldn’t be more delighted. The other fantastic artists are: D.C. artists Martha Jackson Jarvis, Brandon Morse, Phil Nesmith, Michael Platt, and Jeff Spaulding; and Baltimore artists Oletha DeVane, Bernhard Hildebrandt, John Ruppert, Soledad Salamé, Joyce J. Scott, and Sofia Silva. The selected artists’ work represents a wide range of media and approaches, from sculpture, installation, printmaking and photography to video. The resulting exhibition showcases exceptional examples of some recent trends in art from the region. (OK that is from the press release, no brain juice left right now).
If you are in the fair District and can direct yourself towards 18th and Constitution Aves NW, please do stop by and introduce. I’ll be in residence on the 2nd floor. There is a curator talk from 5.30-6.30 and then the opening proper at 6.30 – 8 pm.
Twill be up till June 24 so plenty of time to peruse if you can’t make it Thursday. Here’s the exact address:
