Displacement and A Change of Plan: Pyramid Atlantic: 8230 Georgia Ave.
DISPLACEMENT is an exhibition of multi-media works curated by Symmes Gardner, the director of the Center
for Art and Visual Culture at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. DISPLACEMENT features three artists,
Nino Leselidze, Hadieh Shafie, and Jennie Thwing, whose installations challenge the inherent structure and
subtleties of our common visual/aural experiences, and question the homogeneity of our time. The three artists
create process-orientated art that draws on the tactics of repetition and multiplication in order to cast doubt on
conventional reality, to displace our relation to it, and to knock off balance our perceptual need for a linear progression.
“Identity in crisis”, “cultural alienation”, and the dichotomy between “reality versus illusion” are recurrent
themes in the works presented in this exhibit.
A CHANGE OF PLANS is concerned with presenting a range of human emotions in tandem with one another and
their place in defining our overall condition. Courage, wonder, fear, violence, and love are used to describe our
experience in the world as well as to ask what if anything might lie beyond. Symmes Gardner writes that his “video installations concentrate on the disconnection between the world we live in and constructed media environments from contemporary culture (films, television, music)...Time-based images taken from the world in real-time are intentionally juxtaposed with highly stylized cinematic imagery to allow the viewer to examine ideas and nuances relating to time and the sense of how events and emotions are constructed/fabricated.

Overall, the goal of these installations is to make tactile the idea of how we navigate the creation of a personal psychological/emotional space amidst the pressures of history and culture.”

Kari Minnick Art Glass Studio: 8230 Georgia Ave.
Come visit a working glass studio. The studio offers architectural commissions, fine art glass, and internationally recognized courses in kiln formed glass. The studio is also known for exceptional art glass jewelry and will be offering a SPECIAL SALE! on the 9th.

Community Spirit: featuring artist Hussein Saidi - Gateway’s Heliport Gallery : 8001 Kennett St., Suite 3
In Community Spirit, contemporary African artist, Hussein Saidi, reflects on the evolving community in Silver Spring. Hussein, like many of our community’s current residents, grew up elsewhere but has called Silver Spring home for the last 5 years. Hussein grew up in Tanzania, where community and family were a major part of his upbringing. So much so, that he named his art studio Ujama’ Art. In his native language of Kiswahili, ujamaa means unity in family and in community. In this exhibition, his collages depict and highlight images of places in Silver Spring that illustrate how the community has made and is continuing to make positive changes. The places are familiar, but in Hussein’s signature style of acrylic painted backgrounds with natural material collages, the scenes take on new meanings and evoke a full range of emotions. A must see exhibit for any Silver Spring fan.

Stephen Hanks Gallery: 7981 Eastern Ave., unit C-11
Mr. Hanks does watercolors and drawings that range from realistic wildlife to abstract expressionism. He has shown professionally on the wildlife show circuit, exhibiting at the prestigious Easton Waterfowl Festival among other such shows on the east coast. He also does watercolor landscapes and cityscapes. Many of his abstracts are fantastic anatomical figure metaphors and cityscapes with additional drawn details that call for closer inspection. He has exhibited in a variety of major museum art shows including San Francisco, Palo Alto, Denver, London, New York, and Woodstock (NY). He has done commercial drafting and technical graphics design work for large corporations and commercial publications. He currently teaches art at a private school in downtown DC. This summer he is offering private drawing and watercolor painting classes in his studio. Mr. Hanks has his BFA and his Masters degrees in art from the Univ. of Colorado and SUNY New Paltz. Mr. Hanks recently moved to Silver Spring and opened this new gallery to the public for the ArtWalk in 2006. His gallery is also open by appointment by calling 301-588-2326.

Open studio - Brian Hewitt : 7981 Eastern Ave., unit C-8
Artist Brian Hewitt bridges the worlds of art and science in his expressive abstract paintings. As an undergraduate Brian studied physics at American University. In addition to art, his professional career has included work as a science and environmental journalist, and as a webmaster at NASA's Laboratory for High Energy Astrophysics. He incorporates similar themes in his work, exploring the beauty in the energies of existence and motion, in order and chaos, in abstract concepts, and in incomprehensible scales. Brian is a new resident of the South Point district of Silver Spring.

"Subdivisions"- curated by Matthew Best

"unit 8" by Andrew Prayzner

Featuring work by: Sandra Jeknavorian, Andrew Prayzner, Matthew Clay- Robison + Joseph Segal

Images of suburbia are prevalent in contemporary visual culture. At their best, the suburbs are portrayed as a safe and peaceful utopia, full of happy and healthy families, and free of crime; at worst, conformist and lacking in diversity and individual expression. The suburbs have come to represent an ideal, the fulfillment of the American dream of land ownership, a house, two cars, and 2.5 children. This American ideal has been the subject of constant scrutiny. This exhibition seeks to explore suburbia as both the birthplace of, and an inspiration to, artists, portraying the love/hate relationship that those who grew up in the suburbs often share. - Matthew Best

Upcoming: DCAC's famous (infamous) 1460 wall mountables is coming up!
Installation dates July 26, 27 and 28 with the opening reception on 7/28

Russian Reflections

On June 8, 2006 Russian Cultural Centre in Washington hosted the opening ceremony for the exhibition of a famous Russian artist Katia Margolis 'Venice : Russian Reflections'. The paintings that were presented to the public ' watercolors with Indian ink, as well as etchings ' resemble more the antique European style rather than modern Venice commonly seen by tourists. Looking through the magnificent works, through the play of nuances of white and grey paper we sort of submerge into the famous mist of Venice and we see the city as it is. Katia Margolis visited Venice as an art student many years ago. She was deeply impressed by the enigma beauty of the city and still keeps those memories close in her heart which kept her working on those painting for many years after. Katia's creative work dedicated to Venice is genuinely versatile. At the reception in the Russian Cultural Centre Katia's book 'Venice exercise-books ' Iosif Brodsky and others' was also presented to the public. In this book Katia Margolis combined all verses and texts written by Brodsky about Venice as well as Venice works of Brodsky's friends.

Statement from MOCA DC Gallery Director

I've heard a few comments ostensibly attributed to artists who are respected within the art community; yet the comments I've heard are hardly correct, but what is more disturbing is that the people who said them haven't set foot in the gallery at all, or at least not in the recent past. The "buzz" is that MOCA DC is a Vanity Gallery and that people shouldn't bother going there.

This kind of talk reminds me of the time when Blake Gopnik chastised Artomatic because it didn't have the kind of art - or the work of "respected" artists - that should be seen in DC. Well, the art community got huffy about that - and I'm pretty disturbed myself when people speak from someplace besides their mouth.

The truth is that DC desperately needs the kind of gallery that MOCA DC is - one where artists of all stripes can show their work. The so-called emerging artist, emerging art form - - - - - - but especially the hundreds of good artists throughout the greater DC area who produce good work, but don't have a place to show it. Doubting Thomases should come see the current exhibit - East meets West. It is a spectacular exhibit, and not unlike the vast majority of our exhibits since I took over curating shows in January of last year.

So, it's a bit long already, but here is our current Mission Statement:

Oh, before you go further - check out the article about MOCA DC in the July issue of New York Arts magazine.

MOCA DC has a long-standing tradition of being open to emerging artists and emerging art forms, a philosophy established by Clark when he founded the gallery some 15 years ago. As Executive Director since January 2005, Dave has not only embraced this philosophy; he has expanded it to include a greater emphasis on the nude figure, an art form often neglected by Western cultures. That said, however, more than half of our exhibits feature other art forms, although figurative art may also be in some exhibits.

In the past year we have had the pleasure of hosting from 4 to 8 or 9 artists each month who are exhibiting in an established gallery for the first time. We are perhaps the only gallery in the area that can make this claim; we will continue this practice in the future.

There have been many improvements in the physical space in the past year and a half, leading to many opportunities to rent the space for a variety of events and activities to the extent that it covers roughly half our basic rent. Now, it is time to begin to implement new and innovative ways to be more than a venue for exhibitions for our growing list of artists and other clients.

Box at Firehouse Grill

BOX is better than ever and at The Firehouse Grill, Sat, June 10
Don't miss your chance to get a piece!

Alexandria, VA- May 30, 2006 BOX is back on Saturday, June 10, 2006, 9 p.m. at The Firehouse Grill with openers, Jen & The Belmont Boys. The Firehouse Grill is located at 3988 University Drive in Old Town Fairfax City, 703.383.1030, $5 cover, 21+.

Let me tell you about BOX: They can’t keep it clean but they’ll still give you a thrill.

The past year was a time of change and growth for the Alexandria-based original rock band. Beloved bass player, Kate Coffie, moved on to complete her masters. Who else to fill the hole in the BOX but New York’s own Ed Morrissey, formerly of Rubin Kincaid? They thought it would be fun to have more boys in their BOX, so they convinced Lee Cain to come off the Olympic Mountains in western Washington and pick some politically, and socially, sideways tunes with them.

Loyal BOX-ers need not worry: they still don’t take themselves too seriously, they don’t take any caca and they don’t take American Express. Catch BOX live and they’ll pitch a crowd pleasing, fist pumping sideshow circus of songs to blow your brain, tickle your tatas, and smack that ass. They charge extra for anything else.

Things about BOX your mother didn't teach you
BOX was born in 2004 when Tammy Hooper, former drummer and songwriter for DC’s punk band, The Sirens, hooked up with singer, guitarist and songwriter, Michelle Burleson. Michelle played as a solo act and in a variety of bands in Athens, Georgia, and DC. During the hiatus in the fall of 2005, Michelle wrote a slew of guitar-drenched, lyrically driven tunes, including Stack of Fiction available on the band’s web site.
