This Saturday: Asterism Opens @ Gallery Four

opens this Saturday, November 8th from 5-10pm @ Gallery Four. The exhibition will be on view from November 8th - January 10th. The show is open Saturdays 12pm-5pm and by appointment.

Gallery Four, an independent exhibition space in Downtown Baltimore, features work by five artists from Chicago, New York, Washington D.C., and Baltimore. This newly renovated 4,000 sq.ft. gallery features site specific painting and sculpture by recent Trawick Prize winner Maggie Michael, new sculpture and installation by Bryan Savitz, Jan Razauskas, Nikki Romanello, and photographs by Steve Nyktas.

Asterism, a term used in Astronomy, Gemology, and Typography, invokes concepts relating to luminance, change, and capricious relationships within the natural world. In particular the science of Astronomy describes Asterism as an arbitrary arrangement of seemingly unrelated stars that form a personal iconography or subjective constellation. This playful practice in observation suggests a child-like sense of awe for the complexity within the inexplicable and the abstract.

Gallery Four is located in the H&H building.
