Artscape 2009- In Place

In Place, an exhibit of photographic work that interprets, alters and responds to place, will be shown in Gormley Gallery at College of Notre Dame of Maryland starting Saturday, July 11, and running through Friday, July 31. The exhibit is part of the Artscape visual arts programming.

Jennifer Dorsey’s color photographs explore the interior architecture of ordinary, contemporary spaces. Her most recent project focuses on the high school as a place where contemporary life intersects with multiple histories and traditions.

The photographic collages and installations of Jennie Fleming depict fleeting moments caught for examination, which are then and then sliced, shuffled, repeated and reordered. Her work scrutinizes unseen or neglected facets of a location— its mood, level of intimacy, the intricacy of pattern and texture, and the effect of light and time on a place. She has exhibited at School 33 Art Center and Arlington Arts Center.

Using photography to document ephemeral site-specific sculptures Leslie Furlong’s Survey Series re-contextualizes some of the tools that we use to alter our landscape. The result is imagery that can be seen as incongruous and playful. Furlong has exhibited nationally at the Corcoran Museum of Art, Bradbury Gallery, and locally at C. Grimaldis Gallery, Maryland Art Place, Contemporary Museum, and the Sondheim Artscape Prize: 2009 Finalists Exhibition at the Baltimore Museum of Art.

The panoramic photographs of Sofia Silva survey the places of the suburban American landscape on the premise that much can be learned about our culture by examining the environments that we have created and tolerate. Her work has been exhibited in both Argentina and the United States in solo and group exhibitions, including C. Grimaldis Gallery, Baltimore Museum of Art, Maryland Art Place, and Anthropic Deserts at VVVgallery, Buenos Aires.

The photographs in Edward Winter’s series The Living Box depict domestic spaces with an uncanny placement of everyday objects. Moments of light and manifestations of the outdoors complicate the viewers’ relationship to his subject matter. Winter has exhibited at Goucher College and Maryland Institute College of Art, Curator’s Office in DC, and is a recipient of a Maryland State Arts Council Individual Artist Award.
