Abhidnya Ghuge (Texas)

Our Lives Are Green

Abhidnya "Abhi" Ghuge is a multidisciplinary installation artist who hand carves large-scale woodblocks, printing on thousands of paper plates. She creates site-responsive installations, encouraging viewer interaction to enhance experience. The paper plates, no longer disposable, are now transformed and imprinted with life.

"There is a feeling of inner comfort and peace in the repetitive process of printing, sealing, painting, folding and installing - a feeling every person should have in our struggle to belong and grow amidst an effervescing global culture." -Abhidnya “Abhi” Ghuge

Heather Harvey (Maryland)

ENCAMPMENT

Encampment is an elegaic celebration and defensive stance for all that is marginal, invisible, undervalued and under threat.  Working off of the fragile, provisional, absurdist, and dangerous climate of our current national movement, it recalls itinerancy and life on the periphery in all its forms.  This makeshift, transient constructions are both welcoming refuge and aggressively defended bulwarks that straddle the line between elegance and the grotesque using primarily collected trash from daily walk.

Heather Harvey creates site-specific installations and objects that straddle traditional boundaries between painting, drawing and sculpture. Harvey exploits materials’ inherent qualities to yield philosophical and mechanical insights into how the physical world operates and what it means to inhabit a body.

Young Blood 2016

Opening Reception: Thursday July, 14 from 6-9pm

Exibition Dates: July 14 - August 20, 2016

Every year MAP's Program Advisory Committee (PAC) curates Young Blood, an annual exhibition of works by recent Baltimore-area Masters of Fine Art graduates. The exhibition includes emerging artists from area colleges such as Maryland Institute College of Art, Towson and The University of Maryland College Park.  The 2016 Young Blood Artists include:

 Tom Boram (UMBC), Elena Debold (UMBC), Sarah Eargle (Towson), Taha Heydari (MICA), Kei Ito (MICA), Andrew Paul Keiper (MICA), Dane Winkler (UMCP), Jowita Wyszomirska (UMCP)

To date, Young Blood has provided an important post-graduate artistic platform for 72 transitioning Masters of Fine Arts students. Since 2008 this program has continually brought recent graduates together to make new connections and present special selections from their thesis exhibitions.

According to MAP's former Program Advisory Chair, Cara Ober, “After achieving their Masters the next most important step for young artists is their professional debut in a reputable professional gallery". Many Young Blood artists continue on to be nominated and/or are offered either the prestigious Baker or Sondheim awards, if not elected a finalist. We hope to see you there!
