Philly meets BMore

Last Saturday, I attended the opening reception for "Philadelphia meets Baltimore: Conceptions and Perceptions" at Towson University's Center for the Arts Gallery, with Alice Oh and Charles Burwell, who also have work in the show. It was curated by J. Susan Issacs of the Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts (DCCA).

The show looks great, was very well hung, and a really strong grouping of works. Hats off to Susan Isaacs and her crew for a job well done.

I took a few photos before it was brought to my attention that no photography was allowed. I missed the sign they had posted in my excitement to document my work at the show and started clicking away. I didn't realize the gallery-sitter was even talking to me until she was about a few feet away.

Here are a few to give a sense of the show:

This no-photography thing has got to change. How terrible that you, not only AN artist but one of THE artists in the show, were not allowed to shoot the installation.

Your work, as always, looks great.

Joanne: I don't get it, either. I don't know what the reasoning is for such a rule. You'd think that they'd be more concerned about people possibly damaging or stealing works, not someone taking photos of their work for documentation purposes.
