Montgomery College @ the King Street Gallery.
Reception: Thursday, September 24, 6–8 p.m
Silver Spring, MD – Montgomery College’s Department of Visual and Performing Arts presents Edge Effects: Christine Howard Sandoval and Leah Raintree at the King Street Gallery. The exhibit opens September 14th. A reception will follow on September 24th from 6–8 p.m. Edge Effects exhibits site-based projects focusing on Colorado wildfires and Hurricane Sandy.
Edge Effects explores the boundary between the human and wild. Sandoval and Raintree ground this in disaster-affected landscapes: southern Colorado after large-scale wildfires and New York City after Hurricane Sandy.
Christine Howard Sandoval’s work in southern Colorado focuses on the impact of forest fires. She records her experiences through photography, drawing, sound recording, and sculptures. Central to her piece is a large-scale wall drawing made with charred pieces of tree limbs from southern Colorado.
Leah Raintree’s work focuses on low-lying areas of New York City following Hurricane Sandy. Her photographs and drawings document the overlap of natural and manmade forces in densely populated coastal areas.
Edge Effects runs September 14–October 15, 2015 at the King Street Gallery. A reception will be held Thursday, September 24th from 6–8 p.m. The event is located at the Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation Arts Center.
