This Weekend


Robert Guevara: Three voices @ The Creative Alliance

At first glance, Robert Guevara’s sculptural installations resemble abandoned sites of construction. Then you notice the 2x4’s are planed by hand, the fasteners individually stamped, and the materials possess an internal logic, even vitality. Playing off of The Patterson’s girders, conduits, and gallery walls, Guevara suggests architecture’s nature as a living system.
In the Amelie Rothschild Gallery September 10-26, 2009

High Zero @ Theater Project
High Zero is the premier festival of Improvised, Experimental music on the East Coast, being fully devoted to new collaborations between the most inspired improvisors from around the world.
Lasting two weeks in total, the festival brings together 28 core musicians each year, but also involves a much larger subculture of musicians in Baltimore and on the East Coast. Unlike many related festivals, High Zero is not narrow in terms of sensibility or subculture, but rather widely inclusive of all the different types of experimental music-making in the moment. The fact that half of the festival's core participants are from Baltimore speaks to the depth of Baltimore's experimental music subculture, which in recent years has grown to be one of the richest cities in the country for experimental art.
Concerts every night September 10-13, 2009 at Theater Project

Love Letters & Debriscapes @ Civilian Arts Project
Civilian Art Projects is pleased to present two solo exhibitions: Love Letters by Cara Ober and Debriscapes by Nikki Painter.
Love Letters is Baltimore-based artist Cara Ober’s first solo exhibition with Civilian Art Projects.

Ober layers drawing, painting, and printmaking into mixed media works that examine and reinterpret sentimental imagery. Intricate and funny, Love Letters explores the relationship of the artist to image, word, and personal meaning found in the exploration of secret fantasy and expressive interlude.

With Debriscapes, her first solo exhibition in Washington DC, Richmond VA-based Nikki Painter exhibits new drawings and a site-specific installation that explore -- in bright neon colors, pencil lines, and various materials -- the relationship and continuum between the built and natural worlds.

Visions From the End of the World @ Flashpoint

Bradley Chriss’ small, apocalyptic watercolors are situated at the unlikely interstice between the sentimental and the nightmarish. The intimate scale and seductive colors cajole and beguile the viewer into confronting the sinister reality that humanity is ultimately powerless within its own environment. Visions from the End of the World will open with a performance by Chriss’ performance art group, The Post-NeoAbsurdist Anti-Collective.

Barry Nemett: Paintings, Poems & Passages @ The Creative Alliance

Barry Nemett’s paintings reflect a busy mind, constantly feeling around for ideas, images, words and other voices, then piecing them back together like grand puzzles, bursting with information. The longtime professor and Chair of MICA’s Painting Department, Nemett is also a published writer and poet, and collaborated for years with Richard Kalter, MICA’s dearly missed philosopher/ poet/ theologian in residence. The spirit of that collaboration hovers over this exhibition, which celebrates the release of Nemett’s full-length retrospective catalog, and draws together work exploring the dynamic interplay between painting and poetry.
