THE CHARMERS
Christopher Romer

“Although the Charmers are affixed to the wall, and therefore seemingly mysteriously held in suspension in the world, their rhythmic, self-conscious orientation and systematic worn paint effects very clearly keep us aware of their classic sculptural concerns of material, form, weight, and gravity.”  — Christopher Romer

MIND + BODY + METAPHOR
Shaunté Gates & Njena Surae Jarvis

Curated by Martha Jackson Jarvis

“The works of Shaunté Gates and Njena Surae Jarvis explores the body as metaphor, challenging the torpid qualities of painting and sculpture with a sense of didactic theater and enigmatic forms.  Their works command and redefine space with mysterious pairings of disparate forms and malign compositions.  There is a non-static reconfiguration, reconstruction and reinvention that occurs simultaneously that both disturbs and stimulates.  Viewers are made a part of this ever changing matrix that remains haunting, unknowable and in a state of flux.” — Martha Jackson Jarvis

“The two exhibits, NATURAL WORLD and ECOLOGY: Home and the Anacostia, share an intimacy between mankind and nature, with a personal exploration of life, death, loss and renewal.”  — John Paradiso, curator.

NATURAL WORLD
Eric Rhein

Rhein’s body of work includes photography, mixed media sculptural constructions, and works on paper.  His HIV status has significantly influenced his work, whose focus includes the expression of sexuality, vulnerability and resilience, mortality and transcendence, and gives a heightened image of the human experience.

"NATURAL WORLD" - Eric Rhein

ECOLOGY: Home and the Anacostia
Krista Schlyer

The exhibit pieces are meant to evoke consciousness of time and place as it is felt in the watershed: the seasons of life, from summer, winter, spring and fall, to the seasons of vitality, abuse, neglect, and recovery.

"ECOLOGY: Home and the Anacostia" -  Krista Schlyer


LATITUDE
featuring Kyle Bauer

http://www.KyleJBauer.com

“I compose my sculptures by the means of arranging, stacking, and piling – trusting the instincts of building.  In many cases, I let the objects dictate their own forms.  I recognize that this methodology more closely correlates to the formalist qualities within my sculptures, allowing me the ability to investigate a broader expression of ideas.  I derive pleasure from this act of construction and enjoy how this process provides multiple layers of meaning as well as investigation through the use of color, surface, pattern and form.” — Kyle Bauer
