Motivation by Inspiration: A Black History Month ExplorationMonday, January 14 – Saturday, March 9, 2019
Join us for this year’s Black History Month Exhibition entitled, Motivation by Inspiration: A Black History Month Exploration. This year’s collection features African American visual artists from Maryland, Washington D.C., Virginia, and Kentucky. A diverse group of themes is explored as we travel through conflict, migration, identity, and expression. As we move through themes of pain, we push towards triumph. Each artist finds inspiration through their own exploration of the African American perspective.
Contemplating Our Waters: Nicole SalimbeneMonday, April 8-Saturday, May 25, 2019
Public Reception: Saturday, April 13, 2019, 3–5 pm
Nicole Salimbene is an interdisciplinary artist working at the intersection of poetics, psychology, environmentalism, and contemplative practice. Her work strives to glean elegance and monumentality out of the ordinary and ephemeral. Through form and idea, she searches for the poetics of materiality and relationship and the transformation that arises from wrestling with internal and external worlds. From this, Salimbene seeks to provide interactive engagements as a way for viewers to embody the metaphors presented for reflection.
