OPENING RECEPTION SATURDAY, MAY 3, 4:00 – 6:00 PM.
CREATIVE ALLIANCE AT THE PATTERSON
3134 EASTERN AVENUE, BALTIMORE

The Minstallation Gallery at the Creative Alliance is pleased to present View from a Vista-Dome: Dazzle Cities, a new miniature installation by New York artist James Reeder.

NYC’s James Reeder is known for his small, atmospheric photographs of delicately constructed model environments. Though related in concept to photographers like Thomas Demand, whose images of constructed spaces are mistaken for the real thing, Reeder’s images are distorted and the models clearly handmade. Depicting blurry cityscapes or the aftermath of epic natural events, they feel simultaneously archaic and timeless, reducing colossal and long-enduring structures to fragile and transitory symbols of utopia.

More information is available at the Minstallation Gallery blog or at the Creative Alliance website.

Presented by artist/impresario R.L. Tillman, the newest addition to Baltimore’s cultural landscape has already staked its position as the region’s most vibrant miniature installation space. Emerging and established artists are encouraged to spread their wings in this intimate yet ambitious gallery, with 225 square inches of floor space and generous 14 inch ceilings.
