The seven artists in this show believe in images. Characters, abstraction, text—all are used in the pursuit of making pictures that strike the viewer both for their gestalt and for their love of refining a personal library of visuals for the most intense potential. Each artist pushes their image-making to the point where its creativity aches in front of us. Most of these artists work with characters, the face and body are used almost as a template—a solid structure to build wild expression upon.
Each artist in this show will present a selection of works on paper. This opening also serves as a kick-off party for Open Space’s Publications and Multiples Fair held March 9th and 10th at the D Center. To celebrate this, each artist will have an original, extremely low print run zine available at the show. The show will remain on view through April 15th.

Timothy Horjus: Solo Exhibition at Creative Alliance
Saturday, March 9 from 5:30 – 7:30
In his first large-scale, solo exhibition in Baltimore, Timothy Horjus presents work that evokes our current social and cultural reality by using the language of modernism in conjunction with traditional references to discuss our reliance on digitally-produced and transmitted information. He states, “I am attempting to evoke…the contemporary condition. This condition is one of awkwardness. We find our technology and culture increasingly pushing us away from ‘real’ experiences in lieu of digital ones, all the while we continue to utilize our digital devices to have more ‘human’ interactions.”
Timothy Horjus received his M.F.A. in May, 2010 from the University of Maryland College Park where he was a recipient of both the Ann Truitt Fellowship and the David C. Driskell Teaching Award. His work has been shown extensively in the Baltimore and Washington, DC area. He balances teaching at MICA with a studio practice, running his construction company, and reveling in his family.
