Art & Identity

OCA Mocha

The Gallery at OCA Mocha presents presents Art & Identity, an exhibition featuring works by area artists, opening on March 16 and continuing through April 16. We all have a reason for making art, This exhibition aims to expand on the reasons why artists choose to make art and explore the artists identity. Through this exhibit we want to offer artists the opportunity to present pieces that express what art means to them, art that tells their story, or pieces that reflect the identity of the artist.

End of the Road

Online

The Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery presents End of the Road, featuring photography by Brea Sounders and poetry by Lia Purpura, opening on April 1 and closing April 30. Souders began making the photographs that comprise End of the Road in March 2020 after relocating from Brooklyn to rural upstate New York. The black-and-white photographs capture candid glimpses of visitors walking to the cul-de-sac at the end of a gravel road viewed through the mesh of Souders’ screen door or through curtains of leaves and branches. Her subjects variously walk, rest, hold hands, kiss, and stop to reflect, completing a series of ordinary actions during an extraordinary year. The images are presented alongside writing by UMBC writer-in-residence Lia Purpura from her book It Shouldn’t Have Been Beautiful.
