Move, Maneuver. Track and Traipse / Diane Getty / Alice Gadzinski @ School 33 Art Center
Friday, April 3 from 6-9

School 33 Art Center
1427 Light St, Baltimore, Maryland 21230

School 33 Art Center is excited to open three new exhibitions! A free opening reception takes place Friday, April 3, 2015 from 6pm to 9pm. Light refreshments will be served. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Saturday from 11am to 4pm. Exhibitions will be on display from Friday, April 3 through Saturday, May 30, 2015.

“Move, Maneuver. Track and Traipse,” is a group exhibition curated by Karyn Miller. The showcase features artists Sonja Hinrichsen, Stephanie Imbeau, Hiroshi Jacobs and Alessandra Torres. In an increasingly mediated and virtual society, “Move, Maneuver. Track and Traipse” considers our bodies, the physical spaces we inhabit, and the way we move through those spaces.

“An Ordinary Life,” is a solo exhibition from textile artist Diane Getty. Getty has always treasured fabrics and random found objects. Within her work, items of little or no inherent value to others can mean a great deal. Every knick-knack and fabric swatch in her vast collection has its own significance and history. Combining and manipulating these mementos helps her to reflect upon past experiences and her reactions to them. As she experiments with materials and memories, Getty hopes to express all the joy, wonder, sadness, and confusion in an ordinary life.

“Don’t Laugh and Don’t Say ‘Oh My Gosh,’” a sculptural installation from Alice Gadzinski. Gadzinski’s previous experience as a dancer has evolved into a fascination and borderline obsession with performance aesthetics. She presents the human experience, both good and bad, and the idea of performing in a domestic sense from a delightfully sarcastic stance.

JUNE CULP at Freddy
Opens Saturday, April 4th from 7-9pm

April 4th – May 2nd, 2015

Freddy is happy to present a solo exhibition by Baltimore-based artist, June Culp.

There is a compelling psycho-sexual violence embedded in Culp’s paintings that is reinforced by the large scale and reductive imagery. The paintings are limited to mostly black-and-white depictions of what the artist describes as everyday preoccupations. These everyday preoccupations include fist-fights and strip clubs.

June Culp (b. 1991) received a BFA in Painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2013. Recent exhibitions include I Love You­Hoo (Current Space, Baltimore, MD), Black and Blue (Gallery 919, Wilmington, DE), and Sharper Image (Ethan Cohen Gallery, New York, NY). Culp lives and works in Baltimore, MD.
