Specimens of Infrastructure @ Metro Gallery
Metro Gallery presents the work of Creative Alliance Resident Michelle Hagewood. For the past year, Michelle has been photographing, collecting, and considering modes of urban infrastructure and its interactions with the “natural” landscape. Simultaneously concerned with the invisible and psychological structures of communication, play, desire, and control, Michelle has been working to materialize and question these systems through drawing and compositing. The hand continually disrupts a fractal and digitally inspired process, and each evolution diverges from its source indeterminately; moving from familiar to foreign, retaining or suppressing traces of its parent, and often walking a fine line between finding and losing itself completely.
Exhibition Dates: March 4 - April 30, 2010
Opening Reception: Thursday, March 11, 2010 7-10pm

Shallow Spaces @ The Hexagon
The Hexagon presents Shallow Spaces, new work by Adam Beaver, Joe Delano, John Calvin Jones, and D'Metrius Rice. Shallow Spaces features mixed media paintings and works on paper by four Baltimore artists who find content at the boundary of abstraction and representation. Using fine line work, distorted portraiture, and a vivid palette that is prevalent in contemporary Baltimore art, these artists distill spatial relationships and psychological layering. The works in Shallow Spaces pair flat imagery with intricate color work, inviting viewers to explore a dialogue between concrete experience and metaphysical tension.
Opening Reception: Saturday, March 13, 2010 6-8:30pm
