"Sometimes a Great Notion"

School 33 Art Center is excited to welcome “Sometimes a Great Notion,” a mixed media exhibition curated by Randall Scott.  The group exhibition includes work from Atsuko Chirikjian, Neil Feather, Hannah Hiaasen, Scott Hazard, and Kung Chee Keong.  “Sometimes a Great Notion” is on display in the Main Gallery from Friday, January 16 through Saturday, March 21, 2015.  A free opening reception takes place Friday, January 16, 2015 from 6pm to 9pm.  The reception features a live performance from artist Neil Feather. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Friday from 9am to 5pm and Saturday from 11am to 4pm.

“Sometimes a Great Notion,” curated by Randall Scott of Randall Scott Projects Gallery in Baltimore, contains the work of six artists working in a wide variety of mediums.  Abstract electronics and modernist elements are dangerous pairings, making Neil Feather’s sound sculptures a wondrous marriage of the contraption.  Acrylic on canvas paintings by Kung Chee-Keong initiate a frantic, yet ordered chaos where diverse elements become explosive or implosive.  Hannah Hiaasen’s work discusses text, action, and binary thought through her action of typing on un-dyed silk, creating a sort of visual poetry.  Atsuko Chirikjian re-imagines the canvas by wholly re-inventing it- utilizing traditional and non-traditional materials to construct what would be substrate, but emerge as surface.  Scott Hazard utilizes carefully torn paper and text within a picture box diorama to call attention to the overlooked elements that make up the beauty of life surrounding us-a place where material creates relationships.
