    • But first they must catch you by Ryan Lytle
      But first they must catch you by Ryan Lytle Time: 11:00am - 7:00pm Locations: School of Design - Owings Mills Campus - North Details:

      But First They Must Catch You is a series of needle-felted, wool drawings on industrial felt. Lytle explores line weight, quality, and overlapping. The scale of the felt sheets allows the figures to be larger than life. The title of the series comes from Richard Adam’s novel Watership Down. In the beginning of the book, the narrator describes how rabbits have innumerable predators but will be equipped with the reflexes and abilities to combat them. Lytle’s wool drawings highlight the rabbit’s agility, reminding us that even the most vulnerable people will survive through tenacity, community, and instinct.

    • It's Kind of Pretty... by Nicole Dyer
      It's Kind of Pretty... by Nicole Dyer Time: 11:00am - 7:00pm Locations: St. Paul Companies Pavilion - Greenspring Campus Details:

      Nicole Dyer’s artwork examines the human need for the presence of others and the contradictions of our daily lives. Her paintings and sculptures capture everyday objects and activities, imbuing them with nostalgia’s sense of significance but keeping them grounded in their mundane nature. Fleeting experiences can be over in an instant but preserved forever on social media. Emotions can be transferred from a crush to the memory of their cluttered living space. Food can bring us together or create an obsessive pursuit for physical perfection. By foregrounding the evidence of our lived experience, Dyer illustrates the interrelation of our socialization and our social media.

      Exhibition: July 23–November 25, 2018
      Reception: Wednesday, September 5, 2018, 4–6 PM
      Artist's Talk: Thursday, October 18, 2018, 5:30–6:30 PM

       
       
    • OVERLOOKED by Inna Alesina
      OVERLOOKED by Inna Alesina Time: 11:00am - 7:00pm Locations: Art Gallery - Greenspring Campus Details:

      Humans now recognize more brands than plants. In order to combat this trend, OVERLOOKED employs biomimicry in reverse. Instead of following the human adaptation of nature’s problem-solving abilities, the surreal nature of OVERLOOKED adopts human methods of promotion to make us care for its well-being. Branding can transform something, making it visible, valuable, and desirable. In this exhibition, Inna Alesina reclaims promotional techniques to make our environments better, healthier, and less artificial.
