July 30 – August 2, 2008
Featuring new works by Kristina Bilonick, Michael Matason, Jillian Pichocki, and Bryan Whitson, this year's Exercises program highlights experimental uses of photography.
E5: Rangefinder presents works created through a variety of photographic processes including screen printing, light painting, multiple exposure Polaroid's, and photographic renderings, which these artists developed over a several month process of peer critique and mentorship organized by Transformer and guest curator Lisa McCarty.
Launched in March 2004, The Exercises for Emerging Artists was created to support artists at critical points or crossroads in their professional growth and development. Consisting of a series of gatherings at Transformer, the program is designed to stimulate and encourage participating artists as they create new work.
In addition to several peer critique sessions, the artists receive mentorship and feedback from area gallerists, more established artists, professors, and curators. This year's mentors included visual artist Jason Zimmerman, photographer Frank Day, Transformer's Executive Artistic Director Victoria Reis, curator, art critic, and the Corcoran College of Art + Design's Administrative Chair of Photography Andy Grundberg, independent curator and gallerist Andrea Pollan of Curator's Office, and E5: Rangefinder guest curator Lisa McCarty.
EXHIBITION HOURS: Wednesday - Saturday, 1-7pm or by appointment.
