In keeping with our dedication to fostering relations among other art centers, schools and galleries, Howard Community College is pleased to show the work of two artists-in-residence from Baltimore Clayworks, one of the most known ceramics centers in the country.
Kyle J. Bauer, showing in The Rouse Company Foundation Gallery, creates mixed media sculptures with a formalist nature, looking at everything for its shape, space and volume. His current body of work is, "an exploration that combines a metaphorical reference to maritime navigation with sculptural forms that convey balance, tension and control."
Ben Freund, showing in the Art Department Gallery, describes his highly textured sculptures: "All of my work arises in the thrill of discovery, not only in the way an archeologist unearths an artifact, as many of my pieces appear to be, but also in the way a child discovers a sharks tooth or an arrow head. In many ways I’m not creating sculpture as much as I am discovering my own relics."
Both shows run August 15-September 29, with a reception that is free and open to the public on September 21, 5-7pm. Please join us!
