OUT of BOUNDS (show runs July 5- July 28, 2018) (Hours Friday 3-7, Sat 1-5 & by appointment) This show represents artists who, like sculptors, explore their medium as though it were a structure independent of a frame.
The lack of four sides and edges allows a certain freedom of expression without regard to convention. The idea is to let the brushwork, ideas, materials, and media be free-flowing. Renee Tantillo is a sculptor and welder living in Baltimore. She was born in Houston, where she first learned metal-working with a group of women, collaborating, making their own tools, and fabricating objects with whatever materials were available. She finds inspiration in car and motorcycle remnants, as well as any discarded objects that find their way to her. But it is her earlier experiences that fuel her passion for the craft and her exploration into art and the human condition. Lyndie Vantine creates landscapes that exist somewhere between the illustrative and the sculptural. Her current body of work pushes further into the realm of abstract organic forms, to consider an idea of visual and actual movement within the organic terrain. Her work has been widely exhibited throughout the region, in places like the Delaplaine Arts Center (Frederick), the Harrisburg Art Museum, and the Columbia Arts Center. www.lvantine.com For Maxine Taylor, painting is a key to understanding inner feelings, a way of releasing the experiences each of us holds inside. She seeks to transfer these feelings into a visual canvas in order to share them. Her live-work space in Butchers Hill houses her studio and her gallery, MAXgallery. Her work has been exhibited in places like the Maryland Federation of Art, The Creative Alliance and the Ratner Museum in Bethesda. Her work is in numerous public and private collections, including the Baltimore Concert Opera. maxinetaylorfinearts.com Greg Stanley is a ferocious observer of art and art history, and allows this to guide his work as a committed abstractionist. He has been making art for over 40 years, working in a variety of media, including painting, print-making and sculpting. His work has been exhibited at venues like C. Grimaldis Gallery, The Maryland Federation of Art, The Delaware Center for Contemporary Arts and Towson University. His work is part of the collection of T.Rowe Price. Schroeder Cherry’s artworks are mixed media assemblages on wood, often incorporating found objects. The people depicted are both real and imagined. Keys and locks represent tools of access. Watermelon images reference the African diaspora (in a positive way). Although the works tend to have narratives, there is no one story. Viewers are invited to bring their own experiences to each piece. L. Nef’fahtiti Partlow-Myrick is an illustrator, book artist, poet and writer. Her mixed media compositions and autobiographical art journals are inspired by her African American heritage, womanhood, nature, and the
marriage of images and words. Partlow- Myrick currently teaches literature and writing at Howard Community College and Johns Hopkins University’s Osher Institute. www.partlowart.com Please note:
