Sum of the Parts - Wednesday at MAP

Maryland Art Place is pleased to announce Amy Boone-McCreesh as the selected curator for the 2012 Curators’ Incubator Program. Established in 2003, the program was designed to assist aspiring curators in developing and presenting an exhibition at MAP.

The Sum of the Parts is an exhibition of four east coast, contemporary artists that utilize repetitive processes as a means of building grander works. Sculpture, installation, and drawing are explored through processes such as knitting, cutting paper, and mold-making for this multi-media exhibition.

Artists: Emily Barletta, Lauren Clay, Jerry Kaba, and Nikki Painter

WEDNESDAY February 22, 6-8pm: Reception and Curator’s Talk
March 10, 12-3pm: Knitting & Crochet Workshop

Accompanying the exhibition will be a knitting and crocheting workshop. The workshop, sponsored by Lovelyarns, will serve beginners as an introduction to knitting and crochet while those with more experience are welcome to join in for a chance to meet the curator and work on existing projects in the MAP galleries.
