In the Hal Gomer Gallery : Development without Displacement
Runs September 1-September 30, 2016
Reception Date: Friday, September 9, 2016 | 6:00pm-8:00pm
Closing Reception / Talk Thursday, September 29, 2016 | 6:00pm in Studio 194
How can economic development occur without displacing communities? How can artists respond to these issues? How can art shine a light on these stories, facilitate understanding about our relationship to place, and create a vision for a more equitable future? We invite artists to respond to questions surrounding the loss of connection to place and to envision the flipside-using arts to reveal and create spaces for restoration, trust, and justice.
Closing event on Thursday, Sept. 29 at 6pm: A VARIETY SHOW (!) of stories in the form of art, film, music, performance, poetry, music, and conversation as communities recover from the effects of deindustrialization, disinvestment, and displacement in South and West Baltimore. Free Admission!

Chesapeake Arts Center Presents:
Artist Jay Nauman at the Aloft BWI Hotel
Exhibit Runs June 2-August 3
Jay Nauman is a young contemporary artist based out of Washington D.C. with roots in Annapolis and Baltimore. While attending a 100 level design course at Towson University, he found his inspiration through a professor that introduced him to the world of vibrant Color-Aid Paper. This introduction to a new and specific medium of paper ignited what has now spawned into a growing variety of around 50 artworks. He invests countless hours into handcrafting each individual piece by mingling thousands of different paper colors with an Xacto knife and glueing them to a sheet of bristol pad paper. Some of the larger works have taken hundreds of hours to complete over a span of months to sometimes a year. It is difficult to explain the knife cutting precision and time commitments without taking a closer look at the original works themselves.
