Without Boundary at School 33 Art Center is a group exhibition featuring Kyle Bauer, Joan Belmar, Ben Boothby, Ruth Hiller, Andrea Joki, Alison Stigora and Jay Walker. The exhibition is on display in the Main Gallery from Friday, March 21 through Saturday, May 31, 2014.
Curated by Christine Pfister, director and founder of Pentimenti Gallery in Philadelphia, PA, the works included in “Without Boundary” maintain a relationship between abstract and figurative aesthetics. Each of the seven artists depict elaborate craftsmanship by creating innovative works from unconventional materials including, but not limited to, duct tape, cardboard and glass. “Without Boundary” sparks critical dialogue concerning the categories of contemporary art practice and challenges audiences to rethink the limitations of such categories.
In the Member’s Gallery upstairs, Lauren Boilini’s ‘Sticky Fingers
Sticky Fingers at School 33 Art Center is a site-specific installation by Baltimore-based artist Lauren Boilini. The work is on display in the Project Space from Friday, March 21 through Saturday, May 31, 2014.
Boilini finds inspiration in physical action, indulging in pleasure and pain, searching for her limit. “Sticky Fingers” features mural sized paintings dealing with ideas of excess and gluttony. Viewers of the installation are completely surrounded by the floor to ceiling paintings which also cover the floor. Through her work, Boilini posits that “We are a hedonistic society, always looking for more until the more we are looking for loses its meaning.”
In the main upstairs gallery, David Brown’s ‘Roaming Around the Quadrangle’
Roaming Around the Quadrangle at School 33 Art Center is a solo exhibition of recent works by David Brown. The exhibition is on display in the Members’ Gallery from Friday, March 21 through Saturday, May 31, 2014.
In creating his art, Brown is influenced by the immediate force of the shape and color, the “push” of the image. After the initial impact of the image or shape, he draws the viewer in to see the work up close. Unlike traditional minimalism, Brown’s work tries to create a more personal and organic, yet minimalist image. The audience is encouraged to join Brown in the same personal meditation he feels during the creation of each piece.
