Deep Falls is the story of a place, of old mills and a dirty river, a jogging path and a waterfall, a streetcar museum and a highway underpass. The project is about lower Falls Road, the thin strip of country between Hampden-Woodberry and Maryland Ave, a strange and secret spot. The story we tell is of a contrast between rural and urban, old and modern, a place where hipster artist bike co-op punk kids cross paths with salt miners and truck drivers, of the marriage between industry and wilderness. In the animations and paintings made by Christine Sajecki, the stories written by Joseph Young, we tell of a spot, Deep Falls, that is a mixture of history and experience, autobiography and fiction. We take a place, a couple of miles of river and road from the heart of Baltimore, and invest it with time, feeling, thought, paint, ink, paper, wax.

Like any place, Deep Falls isn’t just ours. It’s also the work of musicians and engineers, other artists, writers, designers, and gallery owners, people with technical and creative knowledge. Deep Falls is truly a collaborative venture; it’s a neighborhood.

The stories, paintings, drawings, animation, and bits of photography and transfer and will be on display at the Antreasian Gallery in Hampden from February 13 thru March 2, opening Friday February 15th from 6-10. There will be informal live music by Caleb Stine and Nick Sjostrom, Shodekeh, James Sarsgaard, and other friends.
