The use of light has been a creative power wielded by artists for centuries. Through a contemporary lens artists Neville Barbour and Joe Gerlak utilize their skills in various mediums to delight the audience with their artistic vision. Barbour draws on ambient light within his charcoal and graphite drawings on a painted surface. His work explores hyperrealities that often leave audiences viewing the work as photographic. Gerlak explores plexiglass as a medium and a muted color palette to manipulate visible and perceived light.
Preview Party: Friday, November 17 at 6:30 – 8:30 pm
Lost Boys: Amos Badertscher’s Baltimore is the first career retrospective of artist Amos Badertscher in the United States. Between the 1960s and 2005, Badertscher documented hustlers, club kids, go-go dancers, drag queens, drug addicts, friends, and lovers who were part of LGBTQ+ life in Baltimore. A self-taught photographer, Badertscher (American, born 1936) worked on the fringes of the polite society into which he was born as an upper-middle class white Baltimorean.
Following an open call to artists based in Maryland and neighboring states, Nekisha Durrett of Washington, D.C. and Jackie Milad of Baltimore were selected by a jury to create new works in dialogue with Fred Wilson’s Artemis/Bast (1992). The sculpture joins the body of Artemis, Greek goddess of the hunt, and the head of Bast (also known as Bastet), the more ancient Egyptian cat goddess. The black feline head sits atop the white plaster body, asserting Africa as a vital source of knowledge across the ancient world.
Tiona Nekkia McClodden’s genre-defying work, Play Me Home (2021), is a four-channel video with sound and sculptural objects (two horns, a leather-bound script, and seeds) blending narrative fiction and nonfiction. This installation reflects the Philadelphia-based artist’s three-year journey of delving into her family history and funerary traditions in the South.
