RandallScottProjects is pleased to announce our next exhibition, Untitled no. 5, a group exhibition of Baltimore based visual artists opening February 20th and continuing through March 21st. RandallScottProjects continues an ongoing series of “Untitled” group exhibitions, where an intimate group of artists are selected to exhibit together to stimulate a visual discussion.

While the gallery asserts it’s aesthetic by selecting the artists and works, there is no specific theme besides the intrinsic merits of each and the relationships that evolve through proximity. Each of the six artists selected creates mature and complex work. All are equal players in making Baltimore a stronger artistic community.

Each of the six artists selected creates strong work and are important players in making Baltimore a stronger artistic community. Lauren Adams' interdisciplinary artworks visualize social and political hierarchies to reveal unexpected associations and collusions. Drawing on period research, historical decorative forms and topical propaganda images are subverted with a tinge of humor.

Group Exhibit: Bawlmer
A group exhibition of Baltimore based artists, curated by Dwayne Butcher
at Crosstown Arts in Memphis, TE

August 19 - September 20, 2014
Gallery Talk: September 6 at 2 pm

Excerpt from a Review of Bawlmer in Number: 80 by J. Stokes-Casey: "In the midst of this triangle of gluttony, three small, well-crafted ink on paper works from Cara Ober’s Tchotchkes Series combine black and white still life paintings of knick-knacks with clean cursive text on a stark background and speak of a more subtle indulgence. The works ironically address décor produced for the consumption and delight of every day people through the medium of high art which is typically aimed toward more elite and highbrow consumers."

Baynard Woods at the Baltimore City Paper reviewed the Sondheim Semifinalists, in "Profusion, Not Confusion" on July 23, 2014 and mentioned my "lush, oxidized, and deeply layered reflections on decoration" here.
