Wednesday, February 7 :: 2pm
@ Montgomery College

Galerie Myrtis is pleased to announce the forthcoming debut of the documentary “Black Printmakers of Washington, DC: Percy B. Martin & Michael B. Platt.” The film is produced and directed by Susan Goldman, Director of the Printmaking Legacy Project and Lily Press.

Following the screening, there will be a discussion with Goldman and members of the D.C. printmaking community who have worked together from the late 1960s to the present day. The panelists will talk about Percy Martin and Michael Platt, their history, training, involvement in significant political movements, and how they developed print departments, studios, and their art. Esteemed speakers, including Carol Beane, Percy Martin, Dwight Tyler, Claude Elliott, Lynn Sylvester, and Francine Haskins will be present at the event.

JJC Talks: Hope & Faith
Thursday, February 8 :: 6:30-7:30pm
@ Baltimore Museum of Art

Join the Joshua Johnson Council’s February meeting featuring twin artists Eleisha Faith McCorkle and Tonisha Hope McCorkle.

This virtual conversation will stream live on the BMA’s Facebookand YouTubepages.

About the Artists:

D.C. born, Hyattsville, Md. raised twins Eleisha Faith & Tonisha Hope McCorkle (known collectively as “Hope & Faith”) hold BFAs from NYU in studio art. Formerly enrolled in the Visual and Performing Arts program at the Jim Henson School of Arts, Media, and Communication, the two have been cooking, curating, studying, and creating art since they were seven years old. At 17, the twins lost their mother to the rare lung condition of sarcoidosis. Since then, the two have used their art as a space of healing, creating immersive experiences that engage with loss, grief, and identity, coming together to form an interdisciplinary collaborative.

Sourced from their own lives, the pair began to see their worlds collide as they grew into a new state of consciousness as one. Their work serves as a spiritual process towards completion, utilizing 2D, 3D, and 4D elements as puzzle pieces to form the bigger picture. Deconstructing materials in their practice, the dynamic duo reconstructs narratives through veracious and symbolic imagery to communicate stories of Black life, food, rituals, healing, spirituality, magic, hope, and faith.

PGCTV News, VoyageBaltimore, Visionary Art Collective, and the DC Public Library have recognized the pair’s work. They have been the recipients of a DC CAH Art Bank Grant, a Martin Luther King Jr. Scholarship, an MSAC Creativity Grant, and a 2024 Andy Warhol Foundation’s Grit Fund Grant, and have work permanently installed at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library in D.C. They are currently expanding their practices individually and collectively as artists-in-residence at Creative Alliance in Baltimore.

Collective Celebrations of the Body: VisArts’ 2023 Bresler Resident Megan Koeppel | Opening Reception
Friday, February 9 :: 7-9pm
@ VisArts Rockville

Collective Celebrations of the Body is an exhibition of works made by Megan Koeppel and local artists M Aragon, Sarah Bowman, Hannah Brancato, Eliza Clifford, Maggie Gourlay, and Camila Tapia.

The exhibition is rooted in a workshop led by Koeppel and Brancato in which artists were invited to explore natural dyes and the relationship of textile work to the artist’s body as a tool for making, symbol in art history, and role within the craft of textile. The workshop resulted in discussions, celebrations of the body, a community quilt, and individual quilt blocks created by each participant, which are dispersed throughout the show.

The majority of the pieces in this exhibition come from Koeppel’s studio. These works combine playful explorations of natural dye with a reclamation of the figure that is in direct response to the depiction of the nude muse in art history.

The works in Collective Celebrations of the Body reflect the way contemporary textile is used to shed light on a history of under-recognized labor. Quilts and other textile works have a direct relationship to the human body, but the creators of these objects are not typically seen. These works celebrate the time, skills, and labor that are part of crafting textiles, as well as the people who create them.

About the Artist

Megan Koeppel is a textile artist from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She earned her B.F.A. from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2018, where she studied fine art and curatorial practices. Her work was recently exhibited at The Museum of Quilts and Fiber Arts (Cedarburg Wis.), Material Gallery + Studio (Milwaukee Wis.), VisArts (Rockville, Md.), Monochrome Art Fair (Washington, D.C.), and Creative Alliance and the Walters Art Museum (Baltimore, Md.). She was a 2022 Janet and Walter Sondheim Artscape Prize Finalist and a 2022-2023 artist-in-residence at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts.

Roman J. Witt Residency
deadline February 15
posted by University of Michigan

The mission of the Roman J. Witt Residency Program is to support the production of new work at the University of Michigan. The program awards one residency per academic year for a visiting artist/​designer to develop a new work in collaboration with the Stamps School and University of Michigan community. To make visible the creative process through the creation of a defined work from concept to completion, is a central tenet of the residency. The residency is expected to culminate in the realization of the proposed work, as well as its presentation.

The 2024 – 2025 Witt Residency is organized in partnership with the Stamps Gallery, a public center for contemporary art and design in downtown Ann Arbor, part of the Stamps School of Art & Design, at the University of Michigan. The Stamps Gallery opened in 2017 after years of being located in three disparate campus spaces. Building on the school’s strong tradition of excellence, thought leadership, and community engagement, our goal is to develop innovative and scholarly exhibitions, publications, and public programs that foster inclusive platforms for presentation, discussion, and inquiry into the urgent questions and concerns of our time. The Gallery is an incubator and lab for contemporary artists and designers to explore ideas and projects that catalyze positive social change. A commitment to social justice informs the work of developing exhibitions, programs, and publications with a goal to inspire new ways of looking, making, and thinking. Stamps Gallery also partners with faculty and students to develop and present exhibitions and programs that examine the potential role of art & design to create a more just and equitable community.

The residency will consist of a making period of up to 12 weeks in residence during the 2024 – 2025 academic year, followed by an exhibition period. The culminating exhibition will open early in the fall of 2025 and will occupy the Stamps Gallery— with possibilities for additional programming to extend beyond the gallery space. Plans should show consistency conceptually regarding the inherent overall structure of the project, have a strong visual impact and potential for engagement. This, along with the proposed work, will strongly determine selection of the artist/​designer.

It is expected that a significant portion of time during the residency will be spent in direct interaction with students. Ideas for student interactions include but are not limited to: allowing students to work with the artist/​designer; be in dialogue with the artist/​designer; provide critiques on

student work; engage in student-led interviews; or allow for student observation of artist/designer’s process. Creative methods of engagement to animate the gallery space as a focal point of campus activity are highly encouraged.

The 2024 – 2025 resident will conduct planning sessions remotely during the fall 2024 academic semester; they will be on-site in Ann Arbor during the winter 2025 semester, with student participation unfolding January 6‑April 20, 2025, with the exhibition opening in summer/​fall 2025. Curatorial and installation support will also be provided. The work created is the property of the artist. Please see gallery plan and protocols.

Applications from practitioners of studio disciplines, as well as criticism, are welcome.

Selected artists are required to visit for a 4–6-week period between February 1–May 1, 2023.

The Artist-in-Residence will be selected based on the merits of their professional careers, their dedication to being part of an academic environment, and their proposal to develop and expand on their creative process utilizing the facilities, unique collections, and research centers available at Indiana University. Selected applicants will be featured as part of the McKinney Visiting Artist Lecture Series and must remain in residence for the full period of the residency.
