Cycles

On View April 10- April 16, 2012 

Organized by Michelle Gomez and Joseph Parra

Cycles is a group exhibition featuring works by Ellen Burchenal’s Senior Thesis class. All of the artists were commissioned to create small artworks in response to the word, “Cycles”. This exhibition explores repetition in a variety of occurrences. The conscious effort of producing the art itself becomes a tool to examine why cycles repeat themselves. Whether these artists find inspiration from repetitive patterns in nature,families, relationships or physical processes; they all share the universal longing to examine their own relationships to objects in order to promote better self-understanding.


Check out more photos on my Facebook! Thanks for coming!

Double Consciousness
Ten International and American Artists Exploring Issues of Cultural Identity
Thursday, May 5th, 2011 through Saturday, June 18th, 2011 Opening Reception: Thursday, May 5th, 2011 from 6pm to 8pm
(Laurel, MD) C Street Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of it’s fourth exhibition, Double Consciousness, opening on Thursday, May 5th, 2011. The exhibition explores issues of cultural identity, featuring works by emerging artists Roman Arevalo, Melis Bürsin, Morel Doucet, Adam Golfer, Pao Houa Her, Paolo Morales, Mario Mutis, Ruth Pettus, Nora America Pinell-Hernandez, and Manjari Sharma. The exhibition was co-curated by Michelle Gomez and Elle Perez.
The artists presented in Double Consciousness use a wide variety of mediums including photography, painting, sculpture and video in order to investigate their personal experiences of transnational identity, cultural assimilation, and ideas of “home.” Each of the artists is influenced by their own personal history; these range from recently immigrating to the United States to being a second generation American. Through direct or suggested use of the human figure in relation to various environments, narratives of vulnerability and strength emerge. While the work often speaks of isolation or alienation, there are underlying themes of connection. The resulting artworks are explorations of the self, inspired by past family history and present experiences.
The exhibition will be on view to the public from May 5 through June 18, 2011. The opening reception will be from 6 pm-8 pm. Public programming for the exhibit will include community workshops for children as well as a panel discussion with the artists and curators. Information about these events will be available on the C Street Gallery Website.
