DIVISION OF LABOR
March 23 – April 15
Opening Reception Friday, March 23, 7-10 p.m.
curated by Christian Donnelly, Skye Gilkerson, and Jason Meyer
featuring: Jordan Bernier, Christian Donnelly, Mike Ellyson, Skye Gilkerson, JK Keller and Keetra Dean Dixon, Marian April Glebes, Jason Meyer, David Prince, Michael Rea, Mary Smull, 
and Renee van der Stelt
In this time of mass manufacturing and outsourcing, making by hand can be a potent and rebellious act. What is the allure of the handmade, the laboriously crafted, in a time of digital saturation? Division of Labor presents twelve artists from Baltimore, Philadelphia, Chicago and Los Angeles, and asks what meticulous processes and time consuming approaches can bring to an idea. Featuring works that employ a spectrum of methods from extreme force to remarkable delicacy, this exhibition will explore the role of old craft traditions and new craft inventions in contemporary art practices.
Artist Renee van der Stelt will do a drawing-based performance the night of the opening.
