WHAT IS GREEN?
a new exhibit featuring artists exploring the color, the word, & the concept of green
Opening September 12th 7pm-Midnight
@ The Windup Space in Station North Arts district, 12 W North Ave Baltimore, MD 21201
through Friday October 24, 2008 (Hours are Tuesday through Saturday 4pm to 1am)
What is Green? is a group exhibition of photos, paintings and sculpture at The Windup Space. This exhibit features resident artists of Load of Fun, MICA Alumni, patrons of the Chesapeake center, and members of Baltimore art community at large. The opening reception will include live entertainment and probably some wrestling clowns.
This show aims to remind the viewer that while the color green remains relatively stable the concept of green is in flux and as it evolves we must challenge ourselves to react to both the tidal wave of scientific knowledge, hearsay and our own intuition and passion towards life to embrace and create a green world in a personally meaningful and poignant way.
J Gavin Heck, a former resident artist at Load of Fun, and winner of the "best art" award for Jazz Hand, his 2007 kinetic sculpture in the American Visionary Arts Museum Race, gathered artists including Carol Bold, Emily C-D, Reed Sayre, Daniel Stuelpnagel, Bart O'Reilly, Matt Muirhead and artists with developmental disabilities from the Providence Center and others to help examine the question What is Green?, a follow-up to his international show in the Spring, If Its Yellow.The Windup Space is a new venue in the Station North Arts district, more about it here:
