The yin and yang of the artists Vincent Carney and Matt Klos's works reflect not only the interior versus the exterior, but the pristine versus the derelict-- yet their work is so cohesive (as is visible by the hues used by both artists), you may think they shared the same palette.

The artists in this year’s Towson University Artscape exhibition define home through different approaches to discomfort. For David Page, home can be threatening and torturous; for Ben Marcin, it is abandoned memory; for Katherine Sifers, it is postmodern vanitas; for Margaret Rogers, it is fantasy; for Avi Gupta, it is familiar but alienated; and for Mary Beth Muscara, it is fusion.
Cheryl Harper, this year’s Towson University curator of the summer Artscape exhibition, is an independent curator working in the mid-Atlantic region. She has curated over 50 exhibitions. Harper has an MFA in printmaking from the University of Delaware, and an MA in Art History in Modern and Contemporary Art from Temple University. She is a practicing artist as well as a curator.

“GUTSY: Taking the Fear Factor Out of Feminism,” seeks to highlight the work of female artists and artists dealing with feminist issues, themes, and aesthetics. The show is presented by The Feminist Art Project – Baltimore, which recognizes the aesthetic, intellectual and political impact of women on visual arts and culture. As part of TFAP-B’s mission to support female artists and local organizations working to support women, 20% of each work of art that is sold will go to Power Inside, a human rights and harm reduction organization that serves women and girls who are survivors of gender-based violence and oppression.

Without light, art does not exist. The visible spectrum of light through the human eye is what allows us to perceive beauty, thus making it an appropriate medium for these artists to express themselves. Similar to the process artists like Itten, Rothko or even Newton used to explain color theory. The artwork in this show uses light not as a mere consideration for their work, but as a medium in and of itself. Their individual sculptures combine to create one environment where the visible spectrum of light and its role in the spaces they create is the main focus.
7200 Sollers Point Road
Delving into the abstract fantasy world of imaginary friends, this collection embraces the subtle and strange. With tiny worlds existing in each palette, patrons can fill in their own blanks, recalling their own imaginary friends and placing them in each abstract environment. With colorful fantasy, nostalgic innocence is conjured in these delightful works.
Artists: Pam Rogers, SiJae Byun, Allen Linder and Pam Rogers

Artists seek out visual order when describing the world around them. The repetition and considered placement of elements and forms depict relationships experienced visually and emotionally. Artists communicate using familiar visual vocabulary to suggest meaning to be potentially decoded and experienced by the individual viewer. The exhibition “Structural by Nature” features work by Amy Klainer, Karen Klinedinst, Maxine Taylor and Bridget Z. Sullivan and the exhibiting artist members of Hamilton Gallery. The work in this exhibition is inspired by the structural forms found in nature and made by human hands.
126 North Madeira Street
Creation arises from the dissolving of forms and concepts. The artwork in this exhibition represents the dissolving of contemporary beliefs through a diverse array of subject matter. Dissolution of belief establishes the foundation for Transformation. This exhibit establishes the strong correlation of end to its counterpart, beginning. This forges an alternative way of seeing for the viewer.
Artists: Kini Collins, Jessica Damen, Megin Diamond, Michelle Dickson, Annie Farrar, Cianne Fragione, Pat Dennis Giroux, Artemis Herber, Daniel Herman, LaToya Hobbs, Ruth Pettus, Maxine Taylor, Sandra Wasko-Flood

In “On the Brink,” Joyce Yu-Jean Lee takes a look at various states of precariousness: environmental, economic, and mortal. Her projected video in this exhibition teeters at the edge of opposing forces and cyclical phenomena. A circular screen suspended from the ceiling serves as a projection surface for an animated storm tossing around the residue of everyday urban life. Cell phones, laptops, pets, jewelry, cars, and water bottles float and swirl around and above viewers. “On the Brink” illustrates precarious fragility, establishing loose narratives and vignettes abstracted from familiar banal environments that warn about falling out of balance.
Artist: Joyce Yu-Jean Lee
“I would like everything I’m entitled to,” is a solo-exhibition of new work by Margaret Rogers. Referencing themes of home, domestic spaces, and household labor, Rogers uses lightweight, fragile and degradable materials for her work that do not function as the objects they represent. These materials are accessible and come with a sense of urgency and immediacy, referencing issues of childhood and class. Rogers’ exhibit focuses on DIY culture and interior design media, both celebrating and laughing at the objects and ideas these outlets present. Images are made by first hand drawing patterns and objects, often appropriating the vacant iconography frequently found in design objects. These drawings are then cheaply reproduced and collaged onto the pillow-like surfaces. The resulting objects are sincere parodies, displayed in the crowded style of an over-decorated interior.
World Trade Center, 27th floor
D. Emerson Myers’s work is guided compositionally by the city’s infrastructure and thematically by the city itself. It’s people and it’s culture. Taking a mapped grid work and turning it into a patchwork of colorful neighborhoods and districts. Doug Moulden's “Brunswick Landing” is where you want to end up. His empty landscape devoid of humans encourages the viewer to place themselves metaphorically into the painting.
Artists: Doug Moulden, D. Emerson Myers
The Windup Space is pleased to present “Logical Magic,” featuring new paintings by Se Cho. The subjects of Cho's work are based on geomorphology, engineering, modeling, and general scientific concepts like accuracy vs. precision, optical illusion, etc. Cho says of her work: "My paintings are a representation of what I learn and experience in my life, most importantly subjects of my scientific research."
Artist: Se Jong Cho
