Friday 09.04.2015 through Thursday 06.04.2015
Baltimore, Maryland based artist Gary Kachadourian creates intricate pencil drawings of everyday objects and landscapes that are designed to be copied, shown, and/or distributed as Xeroxed or laser printed booklets, prints, posters, or objects. Much of his work is available to purchase for under $10 and is xeroxed to life-size scale. His installations anchor the viewer in a familiar reality, proposing that one should consider the beauty within a banal landscape. His work will turn the walls of our main gallery into an urban alley way, complete with a Volvo station wagon and life-size trees. Recent exhibitions include the 12th National Drawing Invitational, Arkansas Art Center; Forest/City at FAM/Western Carolina University; Home Maker at Purchase College, SUNY, MICA Then/Now at the KuBe, Beacon, NY, Floorplan at PLUG Projects, Kansas City, MO; Troika at Lump Gallery, Raleigh, NC; Baker Artists Awards Exhibition at The Baltimore Museum of Art; One Every Day: A Printeresting Curatorial Project, EFA Project Space, NY; Super/Prime: Pavilion, Los Angeles, CA; and Liste and FAX at the Contemporary Museum, Baltimore. His books and posters have been carried by Atomic Books, Half Letter Press, Printed Matter, and Quimby’s Bookstore. He received a Mary Sawyers Baker Prize and a Joan Mitchell Painters and Sculptors Grant in 2011 and the Trawick Prize and a Maryland State Arts Council Individual Artist Grant both in 2013. He was the Visual Arts Coordinator for the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts, formerly the Mayor’s Advisory Committee on Art and Culture, from 1987 to 2009 where he coordinated grant programs, exhibitions for Artscape, the city’s mural program and numerous temporary public arts projects in the city of Baltimore. In 2012 he completed his MFA degree at the University of Maryland Baltimore County.  Artist Statement: For the past eight years I have been making scale drawings of objects, surfaces, and locations that exist in my public and personal space. These drawings are scanned and reproduced using black and white or color xerographic or ink jet printed processes to make books, prints, and large-scale installations. The selected objects and surfaces usually represent those things that are in plain sight, things that are central to the nfrastructure of a built environment but are also things that are visually ignored. While I am interested and cognitive of the poetics of what is and isn’t selected and how what is selected interacts with the other selections I do not feel that it is my place to codify this part of the process.  Organized by Jenny McGee Dougherty www.gary-kachadourian.squarespace.com

Friday 09.04.2015 through Friday 07.24.2015
For the past 10,000 years, humans have flourished on a pretty stable planet but scientists have been warning us that we are getting closer and closer to a much less-hospitable mother earth. Many believe we live in a new geological epoch called Anthropocene or the Age of Man. This stems from the belief that human activity has irrevocably changed the composition of the atmosphere, the oceans, and even the earth’s crust. Essential resources are being drained by the billions of people on the planet at an unprecedented rate. Humanity has become an accelerated geological force. This also means that the transformations and changes occurring can become something humans can feel, touch, and experience. In “Last Daze,” each artist explores the human impact on planet earth in this group show curated by Cinders Gallery from Brooklyn, NY.  The artists are made up of a loose-knit community that have been curated by Cinders into an on-going series of thematic exhibitions over the past 10 years. The dialogue continues to expand with each show and this is the latest iteration.    “Last Daze” - Artist info Jessie rose vala    http://www.jessierosevala.com http://www.ungrundcollective.com/JESSIE-ROSE-VALA - (potential bio + videos) http://cindersgallery.com/pa_artist/jessie-rose-vala/ - (potential bio + past work)                                    Suzy poling http://www.suzypoling.com - (personal website + past work + potential bio) https://instagram.com/siouxsiepod/ - (instagram account + past work)                                             Brian Chippendale http://blog.cindersgallery.com/2012/07/artist-of-the-month-interview-with-brian-chippendale/ - (artist of the month interview by Cinders Gallery + images of work) http://brianchippendale.storenvy.com (Closest thing to personal website that I could find - online store for Brian Chippendale prints + images of said prints) http://cindersgallery.com/pa_artist/brian-chippendale/ (past work via Cinders gallery) Kelie Bowman    http://www.keliebowman.com/about (Personal website) http://cindersgallery.com/pa_artist/kelie-bowman/ (Work + bio via Cinders) Kevin hooyman http://www.kevinhooyman.com (personal website + CV, no bio) http://cindersgallery.com/pa_artist/kevin-hooyman/ (work + bio via cinders)        http://cindersgallery.com/kevin-hooyman-is-artist-of-the-month/ (2014 artist of the month interview by Cinders Gallery)                          Maya hayuk http://www.mayahayuk.com (personal website + bio + CV) http://cindersgallery.com/pa_artist/maya-hayuk/ (past work via cinders gallery) https://instagram.com/mayahayuk/ (instagram account)                                            Michelle blade http://www.michelleblade.com (personal website + CV) http://cindersgallery.com/pa_artist/michelle-blade/ ( Potential bio + past work via Cinders Gallery) http://inthemake.com/michelle-blade/ (interview + images of work)                                     Nat Russell    http://nathanielrussell.com (personal website + cv) https://instagram.com/nathanielrussell/ (instagram account) http://cindersgallery.com/pa_artist/nathaniel-russell/ (Bio + work via Cinders Gallery)                                         Alex Lukas http://www.alexlukas.com (personal website) http://cindersgallery.com/pa_artist/alex-lukas/ (Bio + work via Cinders gallery) https://instagram.com/alexlukas/ (instagram)                                             Allyson mellberg http://allysonmellberg.tumblr.com (images of work - tumblr)    https://www.etsy.com/people/AllysonMellberg (etsy bio)                                 Jeremy taylor    http://jeremysethtaylor.tumblr.com (images of work - tumblr) http://cindersgallery.com/pa_artist/jeremy-taylor-2/ (bio + past work via Cinders Gallery) Sto Len               http://stoishere.com (personal website + bio)              http://cindersgallery.com/pa_artist/sto/ (work and info via Cinders Gallery)       Mike taylor http://cindersgallery.com/pa_artist/mike-taylor/ (bio + images of work via Cinders Gallery) http://miketaylorart.com (personal website) https://instagram.com/late_era_clash/ (instagram)                                          Serra Victoria bothwell fels http://www.svbf.info (personal website)+ CV https://instagram.com/serravictoria/    (instagram) http://cindersgallery.com/pa_artist/serra-victoria-bothwell-fels/ (bio + past work)    Chris Duncan   http://christopherrobinduncan.virb.com (personal website +bio cv) http://inthemake.com/chris-duncan/ (interview by In the Make + images) Marie Lorenz http://www.marielorenz.com (personal website) + cv Langdon graves     http://cargocollective.com/langdongraves (personal website) Niall McClelland    http://niall-mcclelland.com (personal website)
