Small Victories

07/01/2016 - 08/27/2016
Small Victories School 33 Art Center presents "Small Victories,” School 33’s Summer 2016 Juried Group Exhibition curated by José Ruiz featuring the works of thirteen artists from the Mid-Atlantic region. “Small Victories” is on display in the Main Gallery from Friday, July 1 through Saturday, August 27, 2016. A free opening reception with light refreshments takes place Friday, July 1, 2016 from 6 to 9pm. School 33 Art Center is managed by the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts and is located at 1427 Light Street. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Saturday from 11am to 4pm.

Featuring the work of Zimra Beiner, Frid Branham, Francisca Carvalho, Brian Davis, Brian Dunn, Mark Joshua Epstein, Erinn Hagerty and Adam Savje, Kyle Kogut, Matthew Moore, Seon Young Park, Mary Claire Ramirez and Amy Yee, “Small Victories” upends everyday moments and overlooked vestiges of society as a means to prompt intimate experiences, associating iconic gestures and symbolism through a group of artists working with castoffs, repurposed materials, and nostalgic ephemera. This relationship between experience and meaning causally constructs humble yet sincere artworks that run perpendicularly away from the narrow parallels of abstraction and figuration.

This exhibition brings forward a series of studio actions and interventions in painting, photography, sculpture, new media, and installation. Installed as a series of constellations or nodes creating new systems, the individual works in the exhibit ultimately find new meaning through an associative context. “Small Victories” is part of the 2016 Artscape Gallery Network.

School 33 Art Center is dedicated to providing opportunities for visual and performing artists through solo and group exhibitions, art classes, hands-on workshops, a Studio Artist Program and special events. A program of the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts, School 33 Art Center is supported in part by the Maryland State Arts Council and through private contributions. School 33 Art Center is the proud recipient of a grant from the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, which supports fearless and innovative collaborations in the spirit of Robert Rauschenberg.
