Radio Sebastian: You, Me, and the Void
Now thru September 1

Target Gallery
Torpedo Factory Art Center
105 N. Union Street
A solo exhibition by Radio Sebastian, a collaborative between Corwin Levi and Yumiko Blackwell. The exhibition will include a site-specific installation, a series of mixed-media collages, and an interactive video piece. Each year the Target Gallery hosts “Open Exhibition,” an open call for proposals for a solo exhibition. Three arts experts from the DC-area made up this year’s jury panel; Samantha May, Director of Hillyer Art Space, Foon Sham, noted sculptor and professor, and Morgan Hungerford West, founder and writer of the arts and lifestyle blog Pandahead. They reviewed close to 50 proposals individually, and then gathered for a group review of their top ten selections before naming Radio Sebastian the 2013 winners. Radio Sebastian is a husband and wife collaborative between artists Corwin Levi and Yumi Blackwell. The title for the exhibition, You, Me, and the Void, comes from the artists’ examination of “the void,” which they state in their proposal, has always existed. Yves Klein famously leapt into it. Anish Kapoor noted “the void is not silent” and described it as “that very first moment of creativity where everything is possible and nothing has actually happened.” Free!

Longing to Eavesdrop on the Conversation
August 30 thru October 6
Adah Rose Gallery
3766 Howard Avenue
Kensington, MD
Randall Lear’s paintings, sculptures, and installations blur the lines
between all three disciplines. His playful palettes and compositions provide
a glimpse into a whimsical space where graphic forms mix and mingle.
Behind the whimsy, these works are grounded in deliberate processes that
create architectural space and forms. Ellyn Weiss’s encaustic sculptures evoke a sense of immediacy with their bright, bold palettes shaped into primordial forms. Upon intimate
examination, however, these pieces offer a world of intricate details;reminding us that the most basic forms of life, while simple and self-contained,are the origins of infinite complexity. Through the processes of layering, folding, and excavating, Ellyn manipulates the encaustic to form
sculptures that are reminiscent of biological structures.
