Level Up spotlights the work of early-career visual artists from across the Mid-Atlantic region by presenting the work of current and recent students. Eleven artists were selected through a competitive jurying process from four area institutions: American University (Marie Gauthiez, Lindsay Mueller, Jiazi Yin), Maryland Institute College of Art (Amelie Wang), Towson University (Claudia Cappelle, Sookkyoung Park, Tara Youngborg), and the University of Maryland, College Park (Jill McCarthy Stauffer, Elaine Qiu), along with the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (Bo Kim) and Columbia College Chicago (Kelsey Bogdan).
When viewing a collection of work, we search for common threads among the artists as part of the human instinct for categorization. The artists represented here are learning and creating in a specific time and place, which can incubate certain styles or ideas. Still, they come from different backgrounds and generations, and that common thread can prove elusive. At a glance, the quality overwhelmingly present among the painters in the exhibition is a sense of abstract architectural space, as exemplified by Every Today at Sundown, 2022, by Marie Gauthiez. Amelie Wang’s interior scenes suggest a conflict between external and internal stimuli. In Untitled, 2022, a pair of figures sit together while the room around them simultaneously overlaps and evaporates.
Upcoming Exhibition: Call for Entry
LIGHTS OUT: A Group Video Exhibition
June 26 - August 26, 2023
Entry Deadline: Sunday, May 28, 2023, 12:00 AM
The Brentwood Arts Exchange is seeking submissions from artists, 18 years of age or older, who work in video or digital animation for a group exhibition in the Main Gallery. Selected submissions will appear in the LIGHTS OUT exhibit, taking place from June 26- August 26, 2023. Concepts, themes, and video duration can vary. Due to the nature of installing a group video exhibition in an open gallery, we will strongly prefer videos that are silent or have only ambient sound. Selected videos will be displayed on projectors or television monitors in the Main Gallery and may be shared on digital platforms during the exhibition.
Submissions are due online at m-ncppc.submittable.com.
