MICA Photo faculty member shows in Germany

Lynn Silverman exhibits in Hamburg, Germany…

MICA Photo faculty, Lynn Silverman, is currently exhibiting work in a group exhibition in Hamburg, Germany. The exhibition is entitled, “Outlook-Insight: Windows in the Arts”. Lynn’s recent work has centered around windows and light as visual metaphor. 

Poster announcement for exhibition, “Outlook-Insight: Windows in the Arts”, in Hamburg, Germany.

Here is a statement from the curators:  “The window has played an important role in the visual perception of the world. As a mediating threshold, as a frame, the window reveals details of the surroundings, while at the same time providing insights into intimacy and privacy. As a point of contact with the outside world, the window is crucially involved in our relationship with landscape and nature.  Contemporary art explores this opening from inside and outside, exploring boundaries and permeability. The mutual views, which can be interrupted and disturbed by window glass through reflections, are as much in focus as the light itself, which is able to cross the glass barrier. The reality of nature on “the other side” is also questioned. The window becomes an artistic experimental field in which the relationships between inside and outside, reality and deception are explored. On the occasion of its reopening, the Museum Sinclair-Haus shows contemporary films, photographs, installations, paintings, drawings and silhouettes around the window.”

Lynn Silverman’s work installed in Hamburg gallery.

Congratulations, Lynn!

Summer Teaching Opportunity

Putney School in Vermont seeks Summer instructors…

We seek individuals who are passionate about learning, eager to work with this age group, and who are willing to explore something new in their teaching practice. This is an amazing opportunity for teachers who are enthusiastic about engaging in dialogue about teaching and learning with a dynamic group of summertime colleagues on our 500-acre campus in Vermont.

Come to Putney this summer and do what you love to do – whether it’s something you wish you could do all the time – like filmmaking, theater, or drawing, or something you’ve never tried before and are curious to learn about – like glass arts, weaving, or metal jewelry.

“At Putney, students focus on their individual creative process, not final products. Whatever you choose to do, you’ll find yourself in a community of students, teachers, and artists who are interested in who you are, how you see the world, and what your work means to you.” – Statement for students

We look forward to hearing from you. Here’s information about the program and a link to the summer employment application

Jim Burger presents his work at recent gallery reception

Jim Burger (MICA Photo alum) speaks at his gallery reception at Creative Alliance…

“BCFD Firefighter Jimmie Hayes 1981,” by Jim Burger

Jim Burger, MICA Photo alum, has been photographing in Baltimore for over 35 years, and just finished a huge retrospective exhibition featured at the Creative Alliance in Baltimore. Jim gave a gallery talk just before the show ended, and we wanted to share the talk with you. Jim is a funny, sharp-witted speaker with a gift for telling a good story. Here is Jim’s invitation to view his talk:

“This is my gallery talk from my retrospective. It’s about an hour. I tell the stories behind some of the photos, and at the end take questions from the audience. If you’d like to see it, go to WWW.BURGERPHOTO.COM  All the photos from the show are on the site, along with the price list – some framed photos are still available. Christmas is coming up, and Jim Burger photos make great stocking stuffers.”

Congratulations, Jim, on a lifetime of great photographs!
