Lauren Rice: Heirlooms
February 5 - March 12, 2011
@
Transformer
 OPEN HOUSE: Saturday, February 5; 1-7pm
Meet and greet throughout the day with artist Lauren Rice.

ARTIST TALK: Saturday, February 5; 2pm

Installation work of Detroit-based artist Lauren Rice in her first DC solo exhibition. Similar to set designs for theatrical events, the landscapes Rice creates in her sculptural work are fantastical - elements appear to collapse, levitate, burst and grow within the gallery space. With Heirlooms, Rice references gardens, flowers and vases, while simultaneously vulgarizing their traditional preconceptions as feminine and romantic.


1404 P Street NW Washington, DC 20010 / 202-483-1102

Latines / Latin hood
A collective of 13 DC-based artists share their vision of what it means to live, feel, grow and evolve as latinos ... coming into a new reality and a new life,  in a place where the language is different, the flavors different and everything takes shape differently. Here and there at once. Your self-identity and present reality in a state of conflict.

Participating, artists include: Elva Lovos, Lázaro Batista, Francisco Rosario, Mauricio López, Ronald Chacón, Iván Mendizábal, Luis Peralta, Wilfredo Valladares, Katya Miranda y Alberto Roblest.  Saturday reception poetry readings by Quique Avilés, Sami Miranda & Iván Mendizábal, with music by Pepe González.

Curated by Ronald Chacón

February 7-13th, 2011
Grand Celebration / Reading/ Music: Sat. Feb. 12th from 5-10pm. No RSVP necessary!

Project 4
Drive By

February 5 - March 5, 2011
Opening Reception: Saturday, February 5, 2011 - 6:30pm - 9:30pm


The show Drive By at Project 4 Gallery features six artists whose drawings, paintings, collages, and video art offer unexpected insight into the common scenes we observe while moving through the structures of an urban and suburban landscape. People play a periphery role in the artwork and are frequently absent altogether. The material objects that encapsulate our urban lifestyle take on subtle psychological, emotional, and spiritual characteristics. Mundane landscapes and ordinary object are transformed by the artist into quiet reflections of the intangible structures that form the individual experience in a Western culture.

The featured artists Kim Beck, Martyn Blundell, Zlatko Cosic, Sarah McKenzie, Michael A. Salter, and Gregory Thielker take different approaches to explore what we miss when driving by seemly unimportant landscapes, too trivial for our conscious recognition or attention.

Clouds InFormation: Helen Glazer
Exhibition Dates: Feb 4 - Feb 25, 2011
For the past five years, Glazer’s work has been heavily influenced by chaos and complexity theories’ perspectives on the unpredictability of natural phenomena. As her latest Clouds series (on view from February 4th 2011 to February 24th 2011 at Hillyer Art Space) demonstrates, the artistic process is analogous to the dynamical systems posited by chaos and complexity theories — that is, an artwork takes shape within particular conditions of time, place, medium and the artist's own hand, finally unfolding as these unpredictable forces interact.
Monstrous: Jessika Tarr
Exhibition Dates: Feb 4 - Feb 25, 2011
Emerging from the dark yet whimsical world of children’s literature, Jessika Tarr’s exhibition Monstrous features works that are both narrative and theatrical. Just as German story books combine dark and provocative themes with seemingly innocent illustrations, her works contain a tension between content and style.
Members' Gallery: Artists' Advisory Committee Show
