Bliss Point, Brett Freund Solo Exhibition at Baltimore Clayworks

Baltimore Clayworks is proud to host Bliss Point, Brett Freund Solo Exhibition.This exhibition features Freund’s work from his past year as the Lormina Salter Fellowship Artist. The show runs June 22- August 10, 2013.

Bliss Point- the amount of an ingredient such as salt, sugar, or fat which optimizes palatability.

This exhibition is the culmination of Freund’s year in the Baltimore Clayworks’ studio as our Lormina Salter Fellowship Artist. Featuring slip-cast forms intuitively rearranged into functional and
sculptural objects. The origins of Freund’s work starts conceptually as a product that communicates preciousness but is manipulated with a chaotic integrity that confuses intention and understanding of value.His work investigates patterns of aesthetics and symbols in order to produce a mash-up of form and imagery by exploring the decorative nature of the highbrow and the surplus of culture.

Gizmos, Gadgets and Gears

Baltimore’s Inner Harbor will become an epicenter for Do-It-Yourself invention beginning July 1, as all three floors of the Maryland Science Center transform into a hotbed of contraptions, challenges and creative inspiration for Gizmos, Gadgets & Gears—a special summer experience all day, every day, through Labor Day.

 

Visitors can build it, break it, test it or take it home in dozens of Gizmos, Gadgets & Gears activities and workshops engineered for an imagination-fueled summer of tinkering. Among the 50+ experiences that turn visitors into inventors are mousetrap-built racecar races, rubber band-powered helicopter flight tests, recycled CD art design and pinhole camera construction.

CRAIG CLIFFORD’s RECLAMATION at Baltimore Clayworks

JUNE 22–AUGUST 10, 2013

Clifford’s pieces are made by the assemblage of hundreds of press molded, kitsch forms to create texture that at first glance seems to be a mere surface, but then draws the viewer in with slices of recognizable imagery. He transforms these hollow, trite sentimentalized images that come from commercial molds of ‘art’ to create the work. The forms themselves are cast from found objects like refined teacups and serving pieces from cast off china sets, images of refinement and wealth and act as a contrast to the surface.

Everyman Theatre’s High School Summer Acting Intensive to Present Scenes from A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Students from Everyman Theatre’s High School Summer Acting Intensive will wrap up their month-long program at the theatre with a performance of scenes from William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.  The final performance will take place on Friday, August 2nd at 1:00pm in the theatre’s second-floor rehearsal hall.

The High School Summer Acting Intensive is a four-week course designed for actors of high school age seeking to build their acting skills in a challenging and supportive environment.  Students work with professionals on vocal and physical strengthening for the stage, building a character, scene analysis, dramatic structure, and ensemble composition.

Guest artists, such as Everyman’s Resident Fight Choreographer Lewis Shaw, worked with students throughout the Intensive in specialized skills like stage combat.

“We make it clear from the start that this will be a lot of hard work,” said Everyman’s Education Director Marcus Kyd.  “The students go through training similar to what you would experience in college or at a conservatory so they come out with a solid understanding of monologue and scene work.  It’s always exciting for us to see just how far everyone has come in four weeks of work!”

The Summer Intensive, which has been running every summer since 2006, culminates in a final performance of a classical work.  This year, the students will be presenting scenes from A Midsummer Night’s Dream.  Students will play various roles throughout the performance.

For more information on the Summer Intensive or upcoming classes at Everyman, visit www.everymantheatre.org/education.
