About the Exhibit
Obscurities features the work of 17 artists nominated for the 2011 Baker Artist Awards in Baltimore, MD: Christopher Attenborough, Lauren Brick, Karl Connolly, Eric Dyer, Mark Eisendrath, Michael Farley, Kyle Freeman, Leslie Furlong, Alexander Heilner, Justin Kelly, Joanna Kopczyk, Nate Larson, Andrew Laumann, Michael Northrup, Kelly Shaw, Marni Shindelman, and Stewart Watson. As we were selecting artists for this group show, we were struck by the reoccurring themes of abstraction and distance. Each piece describes a departure from form, place, communication, or identity; captures the mystery and anxiety therein; and invites the viewer to peer closely and discover the obscure.
Curators: Savanna Leigh, Travis Levasseur, and Sage Dever
