PRESS RELEASE

BrickHaus Art Space Organizes Exhibition of Artworks by Recent MICA Graduates

Induction is on view from July 7 – 28 at BrickHaus Art Space, 2602 Greenmount Ave., Baltimore, Maryland

BrickHaus Art Space presents Induction, a juried exhibition of works by 15 recent graduates of Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). Jurors Adam Farkas, Kyle Freeman, and Ben Graham-Putter selected the works from the 2012 Commencement Exhibition at MICA. To be eligible, artists had to register for jurying the week before MICA’s Artwalk, an event where art-lovers, and collectors come together to meet artists and view incredible artwork by nearly 400 graduating seniors.

 The idea came naturally to us. Here we have 400 of the nation’s freshest and most talented artists all in one place. Selecting works during ArtWalk presented us (the jurors) with the unique opportunity not only to view works in person, but also to talk with the artists about their techniques and processes,” says juror Kyle Freeman, Gallery Manager at Maryland Federation of Art.

 “Our idea for this show was to Induct young artists from MICA into the art world and help them continue their momentum as they transition into life after school.” Says Ben Graham-Putter, Co-Founder of BrickHaus

Artists Include:

Roman Arevalo, Raj Bunnag, Cori Burton, Rafael Corzo, Lilli Fisher, Michelle Gomez, Kat Hicks, Hannah Hill, Yerin Kim, Amy Leggin, Xavier McNellage, Shelby Seu, Nick Simko, Andy Vible, Gabrielle Vitollo”

Photos from the opening of, “More than Minaj: Black Bodies & the Necked Truth” at the Femme Noir home gallery of curator, “Michelle Imagine Ifill” on June 15, 2012. What a lovely evening full of amazing discussions about art, gender, self image, society, religion and hip hop. I met so many great artists, poets and musicians. It is so satisfying to share my most personal and honest artwork and to have people appreciate that. It sparks conversation and allows me to engage with others in a way that I have never felt before. I am thrilled to hear that my work inspires you to love yourself and be true to yourself. Thank you for coming to the opening and sharing your personal stories with me! 


Much love,
Michelle

My first solo exhibition opens Friday, March 9th

Dear friends, family and colleagues,

I am so excited to share my new digital photographs with you in my first solo exhibition. I hope to see you at the opening this Friday, March 9, 2012, 5-7 pm in the Gateway Gallery at the Maryland Institute College of Art. For those of you who are not in the area, please visit my website to see the series, Everyone In The Family Feels It. RSVP on Facebook here.

Statement Excerpt
Anthropologist Walter Goldschmidt states, “That with war, as with all matters cultural, the society shapes natural human capacities and potentialities to its accepted purposes, reinforcing some and suppressing others…by systematically rewarding and punishing, by indoctrinating youth, creating role models to be emulated, and honoring those who perform well.” Everyone in the Family Feels It is a series of photographs that explore the missing father figure within the military lifestyle of my sister‘s family. The father’s absence affects the whole family.

Reception: Friday, March 9, 5-7pm
