Artist blends abstraction and representation at McDaniel gallery

An article about 'Head Out'. Our first exhibit of the Spring semester. Up close, artist John Hampshire's paintings seem like abstractions of boldly colored lines sweeping as if blown upon the canvas by a tornado. With distance though, these abstractions slowly come together to form the image of a human face.

Darkening artistic view

Here's an article from the Albany Times Union about our second artist exhibiting in the Rice Gallery this spring. Walk into Brian Cirmo's studio to discuss his paintings and there's a good chance you'll end up talking about literature. Stacks of books rival the number of canvases lining his dining room/studio in his cramped Albany apartment. Dog-eared, full of inserted notes, Whitman's "Leaves of Grass" is a sk…

Art Students!!!! A show to enter:

[email protected]

American University’s Museum at the Katzen Arts Center is presenting “[email protected],” an exhibit celebrating the 100th anniversary of Marcel Duchamp’s readymade concept that will run Sept. 2 to Oct. 19, 2014. The exhibition will be curated by Maryland artist, art theorist and Corcoran College of Art and Design professor, Mark Cameron Boyd, and includes an “open call,” juried exhibit opportunity seeking submissions of “new” readymades from artists that significantly expand upon Duchamp’s idea. As the originary conceptual act, Duchamp’s choice of commercially available objects for art exhibition, such as “Bottle Rack” and his infamous “Fountain” urinal, secured his reputation in art history. It was Duchamp’s location of these objects within the “art context” that began a century of debate about the definitions of art and established Duchamp’s influence on contemporary art practices. “[email protected]” will both celebrate Duchamp’s vision and recognize the relevance of the readymade by exhibiting new work by emergent artists that continue a contemporary development of the concept.

Katzen Arts Center will publish a catalog of the exhibition with reproductions of selected artworks and a curatorial essay, and public talks and a lecture are planned during the exhibition. Submissions of artwork must be in high-resolution (300dpi) digital format and must be received by June 15, 2014. Artists interested in submitting work who require further information may contact Lucy Crowley at [email protected].
