One of my prints will be featured in this great fundraising exhibition put together by curator, Ginevra Shay! Current Space in Baltimore, MD is trying to raise $ for their new darkroom and photo programs/classes/lectures. I am so excited to see an emerging platform in Baltimore to help photographers. Now all we need is a gallery space dedicated to contemporary photography, right?! Please join and enjoy the show!
"Current Space is excited to announce plans to build a black and white community darkroom and will be having a one night only slide show and exhibition of Baltimore photographers titled, “Good Light” on November 16th, 2012. The exhibition intends to raise awareness for the darkroom and launch a kickstarter to raise the remaining funds needed for build out. In 2013 Current will start a photography programming initiative that will include classes, workshops, lectures and a critique group.
Alex Heilner, the Associate Dean for Design and Media at MICA and winner of this year’s Baker Artist Award will start off the evening by giving a forty-minute lecture about his photography. Prior to MICA he was the Director of Photography at JCC in Brooklyn, NY, which included overseeing a black and white darkroom.
Current Space is an artist-run gallery, studio, and a headquarters for cultural production. Current Space is committed to showcasing, developing, and broadening the reach of artists locally and internationally.”

I am proud to be a part of a group exhibition called “Call Collect” at one of my favorite galleries in DC: Hamiltonian Gallery! I donated the print you see above to help them raise funds. If you are in the area, please stop by! Check out the exhibition catalog here. A huge thank you to artist and Hamiltonian Fello, Milana Braslavsky for nominating me to be a part of this wonderful exhibition. What an honor!
"Hamiltonian is proud to present Call Collect, a three week long exhibition featuring original works of art by 100 emerging and established contemporary artists from the greater DC metro area. For Call Collect, Hamiltonian asked its growing network of fellows, mentor-artists, and friends to nominate their artist peers to participate in the exhibition and a special collector’s night . Call Collect is a unique opportunity for Hamiltonian to highlight artistic talent outside of its fellowship program and honor the careers of other artists from DC’s vibrant contemporary art scene.
Call Collect will run from October 20th through November 9th with a closing reception on Friday, November 9th from 7-9pm. On October 18th, Hamiltonian Artists hosted a special benefit during which 100 guests had the opportunity to preview the exhibit and choose one of the works of art in Call Collect for their private collection.
Participating artists include current members and alumni of the Hamiltonian Fellowship program, the WPA’s Artist Directory, 52 O Street Studios, Flux Studios, Red Dirt Studios, the DCCAH Art Bank, Mid City Artists, MICA and Corcoran alumni as well as established artists represented by CONNERSMITH., G Fine Art, Hemphill Fine Arts, Addison/Ripley Fine Arts and Project 4 Gallery.

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

A collaboration between Michelle Gomez and Jonathan Wille, The First Supper is both an installation and three performances that deals with cultural and identity issues by looking at the idea of a traditional family. During the performances, viewers witness the artists enacting dysfunction at a family dinner, exploring the notion of roles and performance particular to each family member. The father figure, transformed into a character through generalized stereotypes acts as the main character of the narrative. As three hour performances, viewers are invited to come and go as they please, offering an alternative to a more common audience-performer dynamic. Like a theater set, between performances the vibrant and chaotic dining room installation echoes of the absence of the performers, emphasizing the physical presence of the viewer and their own performative roles as they enter the space. Support for The First Supper is provided in part by the Flo McGarrell Collaborative Projects Fund at the Maryland Institute College of Art.

This little gem sold this week at the Sagamore Hotel for the 80” of Art auction in celebration of New World’s 25th anniversary. All proceeds benefited the VIsual Art Department at New World School of the Arts. The opening was a success! Check out how it turned out here. Check out photos from the reception!
This painting was done in 2010 during my Junior year at MICA. Although it is different from what I am making now (Photographs mostly), it explored the theme of broken relationships which is an idea I have been interested in for a long time and have recently discovered as a reoccurring narrative in my thesis.
Happy to give back to my high school in any way I can. If it weren’t for that little family…I wouldn’t be where I am today.
