"SOLOS 2020 Artists:
Tara Gupta, Kim Llerena, Rebecca Rivas-Rogers, Anne Clare Rogers, Constance Simon, and Heidi Zenisek
For SOLOS 2020, AAC presents exhibitions by six contemporary artists who work in a diverse range of media including photography, installation, sculpture, and painting. The exhibitions are part of AAC’s long-running SOLOS program, which presents solo exhibitions and projects by emerging and established artists based in the Mid-Atlantic, selected from an open call for proposals.
The six artists included in SOLOS 2020 were selected from an open call for proposals by two accomplished jurors: Terence Washington, formerly of the National Gallery of Art and currently Program Director of NXTHVN, a residency and gallery space in New Haven, Connecticut, and Michael Benevento, director of Current Space in Baltimore, Maryland."
Associate Professor of Art Patrick Craig's painting, "Bamboo Mambo" was selected by Sarah Tanguy for exhibition in 'Shift," an online exhibition at the McLean Project for the Arts
The works in this exhibition focus on the concept of shift, change or exchange, in paradigm, position, direction, tendency, viewpoint, atmosphere, needs, dreams, schedules, interactions, environment, perspective…
The two jurors, Sarah Tanguy, curator and arts writer, and Henry L. Thaggert, collector and art patron, created two separate exhibits, each drawing from the same pool of works. 259 artists applied, most submitting two works, creating a pool both large and diverse. This online exhibition, constructed during the time of COVID-19 when galleries and museums remain largely closed, offers a platform for artists to show works related to this immediate and timely concept. It also offers a window into the process of making an exhibition, and how jurors and curators respond to works of art, shaping a unique vision that comes to life through the choices they make.
