Sunlight Ladies – Callee McCosby

MICA Photo is proud to announce that Calle McCosby (Class of 2019) is being featured in an online group exhibition entitled, “EARTH MOTHER / MOTHER EARTH“. The show is being hosted by Don’t Smile, a space devoted to showcasing photography by women artists. A statement by the curator follows:

“On this Earth Day, April, 22, 2020, Earth Mother/Mother Earth elevates images of women, animals, and the land during an era of ecological peril.

Our ancestral roles as healers, water-gatherers, creators, and givers of life, make us inherently tied to the Earth and her ecosystems. We also share in the oppression of our bodies, voices, and creations.

The images in Earth/Mother Mother Earth come from women artists of diverse backgrounds and varied artistic approaches. Grandmother, gardener, or goddess, these photographs celebrate women and our reverence for this planet we call home.” –Noelle McCleaf, curator

Please take a moment to visit the site, and enjoy the exhibition. Congratulations, Callee!

Kottie Gaydos to show at Current Space Gallery

OPENING RECEPTION: UNFIXED /// MATISSE IN BATH…

Current Space is proud to present Unfixed, a solo exhibition by Kottie Gaydos and Matisse in Bath, paintings by Se Jong Cho and sound by Marc Miller. Please join us for the opening reception.

Unfixed –
Kottie Gaydos

This work investigates the intrinsic role vulnerability plays in the healing process, and probes the instances in which the efforts of systems designed to protect and withstand harm, fail. Once stacked, ceramic vessels dipped in cyanotype, a light sensitive photographic emulsion, and left unfixed embody the liminal space between being and failure. These cairns function as counterpoints to archival pigment prints of unfixed cyanotype paper, framed and hung low on the walls. Coated with cyanotype emulsion, the frames are inherently photographic and bear witness to the environments in which they are hung, personifying the experience of the body as affected by internal and external forces. In concert, the cairns and photographic field of blue are a portal into a dialogue between the ideal and problematic body.

Kottie Gaydos holds an MFA from the Cranbrook Academy of Art and a BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). She serves as Curator and Editor-in-Chief of Special Publications at the Detroit Center for Contemporary Photography (DCCP) in addition to teaching at MICA and at Towson University. Her work has been exhibited across the U.S., China, and Japan and is in private and public collections, including the Cranbrook Museum of Art. Recent exhibitions include the 40th Annual Paper in Particular, Curated by Eric Lutz, Columbia College Sidney Larson Gallery, Columbia, MO, and Sentinels (III) : Organize, part of The Neon Heater’s Year Seven: The Temperature, curated by Ian Breidenbach, The Provincial, Kaleva, MI.

Opening Reception: March 30th, 7-10pm
Exhibition Duration: March 30th – April 20th
Gallery Hours: Fridays and Saturdays, noon – 4pm
