Press: Carroll County Times Ober's Exhibit Translates Decoration into Art
From the CC Times: Cara Ober is an artist, professor, curator and writer well known for her local arts blog at Bmoreart.com
. In her new exhibit Translation, now open at McDaniel College, she tackles the way people assign value to decorative objects.
Certain things go into museums and others go into the trash, said Ober. Why does this happen?
Her new works are mixed media with India ink on paper and oil and acrylic on canvas. The pieces are monochromatic, done primarily in black and white with some metallic. The pieces are a collection of series.
Press: Baltimore City Paper Fall Arts Guide
from October 9, 2013.
From CP: "One of Baltimores great wearers-of-many-hats, artist/writer/instructor (and CP contributor) Cara Ober presents new paintings based on patterns she has accumulated over several years. With a limited palette of black, white, and metallic colors, these patterns transcend the realm of simple decor, demanding a presence as icons of power and emblems of ancestry."
