Dear friends and colleagues,

I would like to encourage all Baltimore “Creative Minds” to apply for a new and exciting program I am producing in partnership with Maryland Art Place (MAP) called THIRTY: 30 Creative Minds Under 30. 

THIRTY: 30 Creative Minds Under 30 is a year long series of monthly talks featuring thirty emerging Baltimore artists under the age of thirty. All of the participants use a diverse range of creative practices, from visual art to performance, curatorial, community art, design, film, photography and technology to create visual experiences. Every month 2‐3 creative minds will convene to present their perspectives on current cultural trends and how that plays into their practice, use of media and outcomes. Members of the Program Advisory Committee (PAC); Michelle Gomez, Briony Hynson and Joe Letourneau will be thematically grouping artists from different fields. PAC members and the Maryland Art Place staff will mentor selected artists on the development of their presentation to ensure a professional, clear and accessible presentation. This program will premiere on March 6th, 2013 at 6pm at MAP.

MAP is currently seeking applications from young creative minds who are interested in participating in this program. To apply, please answer the questions in the attached call for entry and e-mail your information to Sofia Rutka at sofia@mdartplace.org by January 2, 2013.

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”

I am so freaking excited about this! Don’t forget, BLOWOUT: A Performance Art Festival this Saturday at the Hillyer Art Space! I will be performing at 7pm!

"Viewers will be invited to watch a silent and awkward interaction between a couple eating at the dinner table. This performance is titled after the first photograph in her latest series, Conversations with my therapist. This performance will allow viewers to reflect on their own heartbreaking experiences and nerve-wracking dinners to promote betterself-understanding and self-acceptance. This is Michelle’s second performance featured at the Hillyer Art Space as part of their Soapbox performance art series. Soapbox is a monthly performance art series at Hillyer Art Space, which seeks to increase exposure to this underrepresented form in DC.” For more info and photos coming soon, read here.”

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

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.
