Pressure/Heat/Time: Paintings by Evan Boggess

WESTMINSTER, Md. – A solo exhibition at McDaniel College showcases mixed media paintings by Evan Boggess that are drawn from his childhood in the West Virginia mountains. “Pressure/Heat/Time: Paintings by Evan Boggess” runs Tuesday, August 27 – Friday, September 20, in McDaniel’s Rice Gallery, Peterson Hall, at 2 College Hill, Westminster, Md. An opening reception takes place Thursday, August 29, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m., with an artist talk at 6 p.m.

A painter working primarily in mixed media, Evan Boggess says that his paintings behave like sculpture requiring the audience to physically move through the work.

“I grew up in the weirdness of the West Virginia mountains,” he said. “The strange, yet stoic people living in the harsh, yet beautiful landscape provided a rich pool of subject matter to draw from as a young artist. I have always painted, and the figure has been my most prevalent focus. Most recently, the figure has been evoked through the viewers themselves.”

According to Boggess, each painting in this exhibition begins as a representational study of a directly observed raw mineral and many of the minerals used also appear in the list of ingredients on tubes of paint.

“Pressure, heat, and time are the conditions that shape earth’s metamorphic minerals. They are also the conditions under which I have structured the paintings in this exhibition,” explains Boggess. “I excavate pressure, heat, and time out of the context of mineralogy and translate them into the language of painting.”

He received a Master of Fine Arts degree in 2011 from Maryland Institute College of Art. More information about Evan Boggess can be found at

The exhibition and reception are both free and open to the public. Rice Gallery hours are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday from noon – 4 p.m., Thursday, noon – 8 p.m., and Saturday, noon – 5 p.m. Call 410-857-2595 for more information. Visit for information about McDaniel College.

High Holy Day Services with Rabbi Greenspoon

Rabbi David Greenspoon Offers Independent Jewish High Holy Day Services in Reisterstown

Rabbi David Greenspoon is offering a new option for Jewish High Holy Day services at the Fellowship Hall, 109 Main Street in Reisterstown.  These services are designed to appeal to people looking for a contemporary approach to traditional services, and are not connected to a synagogue.  Services for Rosh Hashanah, Jewish New Year, begin at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday evening, Sept. 4th and continue at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday and Friday.  Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement starts on Friday evening, Sept. 13th with Kol Nidre services at 7:10.  Yom Kippur services resume Saturday morning at 9:00 a.m. with Yizkor memorial prayers recited around 11:00.

“I am excited to have Sara Cohen from Kibbutz Ketura join me as Cantorial Soloist and to offer these intimate services for heart, soul, mind, and spirit. This season is spiritually awe-filled and awe-inspiring, but too often other things get in the way like politics and fundraising.  I don’t have to do those other things. This is a great chance for people who don’t have a regular synagogue membership to connect to the High Holy Days in a warm, welcoming, and hopefully meaningful way.”

The Fellowship Hall is at Trinity Lutheran Church directly across the street from Franklin Middle School.  Pastor Tim Feasor explains the reasoning for this wonderful interfaith accommodation and support. “We believe that we make God happy when we share God’s house. We welcome Rabbi Greenspoon along with our Jewish brothers and sisters and look forward to wishing everyone a joyous New Year.”

More information can be found online, or by e-mailing Rabbi Greenspoon at
