CulturalDC Announces
2014-15 Line-up at FLASHPOINT GALLERY

Washington, DC – CulturalDC is excited to announce Flashpoint Gallery’s 2014-15 exhibition season. CulturalDC will present nine exhibitions in the Gallery this year, kicking off the season on September 12 with a show by mixed media artist Emily Francisco. The eight other exhibitions selected will feature: Leslie Berns + Shelley Warren, Martine Workman, Tai Hwa Goh, Ben Tolman, Molly Springfield, Rachel Schmidt, Erik Thor Sandberg + Megan Van Wagoner and Anthony Cervino. All of the artists in the program receive professional development support and are mentored by members of the Gallery’s Advisory Panel.

___________________________________

Emily Francisco (Small)EMILY FRANCISCO: Something Slightly Familiar
September 12 – October 11, 2014
Opening reception Friday, September 12, 6-8pm

To create a large interactive soundscape, Francisco will establish an atmosphere of looping videos and overlapping soundtracks. Viewers will encounter a series of works involving motion-activated sound, a playable musical instrument that doubles as a twelve-channel video mixer, and a piano keyboard wired to play a series of tuned radios.

 

 

 

berns warrenLESLIE BERNS + SHELLEY WARREN: Embodying the Ephemeral
October 17 – November 15, 2014
Opening reception Friday, October 17, 6-8pm

In this exhibition of moving images and multi-media installation, artists Leslie Berns and Shelley Warren explore relationships between art and ritual, identity and the environment, and Eastern philosophical and spiritual traditions. Where Berns documents a ritualistic performance on an island in the ‘stream of time’, Warren uses the element of water to describe the ethereal nature of the mind/consciousness.  Both artists use the body to metaphorically convey peeling away the transient, human form.

 

 Martine Workman (Small)MARTINE WORKMAN: Dusk Woods
 November 21 – December 20, 2014
Opening reception Friday, November 21, 6-8pm

In Dusk Woods, Flashpoint will be transformed into an imagined forest with fantasy, playfulness  and humor through different approaches to drawing. Workman presents small mixed media  sculpture, a series of artist books/zines, and animation pieces including a video game. Also  presented is a mix of drawings inspired by old master landscape drawings and etchings, in an  unexpected aesthetic.

 

 

 

 

 

Tai Hwa Goh (Small)TAI HWA GOH: Lull-Print Installation
January 16 – February 21, 2015
Opening reception Friday, January 16, 6-8pm

Created by traditional printmaking techniques and imbued with unique luminosity through hand waxing, Tai Hwa Goh’s installations gradually transform and grow into a space. The image becomes obstructed and buried under layers of delicately waxed papers, transmitting an echo of itself. This process of layering intends to reflect the accumulation of memories and experiences, representing the vulnerability of the human body, and at the same time, the recoverability and power of selfness.

 

 

 

 

 

Ben Tolman (Small)BEN TOLMAN: Civilized
February 27 – March 28, 2015
Opening reception Friday, February 27, 6-8pm

Through drawings, sculpture and video, Ben Tolman explores the relationship between people and their constructed environment and to each other within that environment. Human behavior and daily patterns – particularly along social, economic, and public/private lines – are examined through detailed depictions of commonplace rituals. In taking a step back from this intimate lens onto individual subjects and small networks, the viewer becomes immersed in a wider view of the extraordinary systems that shape our society.

 

 

 

 

Molly Springfield (Small)MOLLY SPRINGFIELD: The Marginalia Archive
May 1 – 30, 2015
Opening reception Friday, May 1, 6-8pm

The Marginalia Archive is an interactive installation that explores the relationships between readers and texts. The source material—contemporary examples of marginalia — is repurposed into a functioning archive viewers can contribute to during the course of the exhibition. A photocopier or scanner is made available in the space to facilitate participation. The marginalia is also used as source material for drawings that blur boundaries between writing and drawing and reading and seeing.

 

 

 

 

 

Rachel Schmidt (Small)RACHEL SCHMIDT: Meandering Cities
June 5 – July 3, 2015
Opening reception Friday, June 5, 6-8pm

Meandering Cities is a mixed media sculptural installation starring a growing, living, urbanized landscape. Schmidt’s two-dimensional drawings and photo collages are inspired by the concept of future urban wildernesses. She builds a world that extends into the viewer’s three-dimensional experience to explore how this fictitious city will shape the creatures that live in it.

 

 

 

 

 

sandberg van wagoner ERIK THOR SANDBERG + MEGAN VAN WAGONER:  Saturated with Subconscious
 July 10 – August 8, 2015
Opening reception Friday, July 10, 6-8pm

This collaborative installation, which merges Megan Van Wagoner’s narrative objects with the  imagery of Erik Thor Sandberg’s paintings and drawings, invites viewers to be witnesses to the  subconscious. A grid of white porcelain pillows spans the walls, with select pieces veiling  intimate scenes. The audience will be provoked to peer into the recesses of the pillows as  voyeurs peer through the slit in a curtain. The images within will present glimpses into  subconscious reflections, dreams and nightmares.

 

 

Anthony Cervino (Small)ANTHONY CERVINO: Ejecta
August 14 – September 5, 2015
Opening reception Friday, August 14, 6-8pm

Ejecta is a reflection on aging expressed through critique of personal and professional successes and failures. The center of this multi-part installation is a single 25+ foot long sculpture constructed from various works made by Cervino over the past 15 years. The exhibition, curated by Shannon Egan, includes supporting and related displays of video, books, and sculpture.

CULTURALDC ANNOUNCES 2014-15 MEAD THEATRE LAB PROGRAM SEASON

CULTURALDC ANNOUNCES
2014-15 MEAD THEATRE LAB PROGRAM SEASON

Washington, DC – CulturalDC is pleased to announce the 2014-15 Mead Theatre Lab Program season. CulturalDC will present five new works for the stage representing some of the city’s most exciting emerging artists. The season kicks-off with Rachel Hynes’ HALF-LIFE followed by Otis Ramsey-Zoe + banished? Productions’ TYGER, Rob Jansen’s THE TRAMP’S NEW WORLD, and work in progress performances of Goldie Deane’s SURRENDER and Annalisa Dias’ CROOKED FIGURE.

______________________________ 

Rachel Hynes (Small)Rachel Hynes: HALF-LIFE
January 29 – February 22, 2015

HALF LIFE is a zombie-themed, devised physical theatre piece for two performers. It is a rarely told story about the shift from girlhood to adulthood that unfolds around age 30. The main character, Regina, is a survivor of a car accident trying to “get back into her life.” Bloody and looking “undead,” no one will let her. Using the zombie metaphor and dark humor, we see a period in a young woman’s life where she is stripped of everything she knows and thrust into a half-state of living and    grieving what’s been lost.

 

 

Otis Ramsey-Zoe + banished? Productions: TYGER
April 16 – 26, 2015 

Otis Ramsey-Zoe (Small)

TYGER explores the holes in our lives: the holes that we are born with, those we acquire through living, and the ones created by memory and the transformation of experiences over time. The performance interrogates ritual as a means to remedy those holes and resolve loss while grappling with the plural and evasive nature of truth. Development of the piece began in June 2013, but shifted unexpectedly when collaborators experienced a sudden loss. As creators found themselves negotiating the very issues that were central to TYGER, the project was reworked to encompass this experience.

Rob Jansen: THE TRAMP’S NEW WORLDRob Jansen (Small)
May 7 – May 24, 2015

THE TRAMP’S NEW WORLD is a new multidisciplinary theatrical work combining projection, physical comedy, music, cinema, and silent film technique. This one-man show adapts Pulitzer Prize winner James Agee’s lost tragicomic screenplay treatment involving Charlie Chaplin’s “Tramp” character as the lone survivor of a super-atomic blast to the stage for the first time.

Goldie Dean (Small)SURRENDER By Goldie Deane
Sunday, October 5, 2014 @ 7:30pm

SURRENDER is a lyrical ritual performance tracking the journey of a young woman, Goldie as she comes into age of maturity, sensuality, and spirituality. Subsequent to a series of mental and emotional health challenges, Goldie is forced to answer her life-long dreaded question of, “what have

 

 

 

Crooked FigureCROOKED FIGURE By Annalisa Dias
Monday, February 2, 2015 @ 7:30pm 

Using heightened visual storytelling, this production combines physical theatre, mask work, as well as original music and text. A young woman begins her journey as an artist and gets lost along the way. What does it mean to be a creator? Where does inspiration come from? What is an artist’s power? Using mask work and physical theatre, CROOKED FIGURE examines the origin of inspiration and the power behind the creative process.

PRESS RELEASE

202.315.1322 | john@culturaldc.org

Arts-based Community Development Investment for Washington, DC
CulturalDC’s Storefronts DC one of 66 National Endowment for the Arts Our Town projects selected nationwide

WASHINGTON, DC – National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Chairman Jane Chu announced plans to award 66 Our Town grants totaling $5.073 million and reaching 38 states in the Our Town program’s fourth year of funding.  CulturalDC is pleased to announce that Washington, DC has been selected to host one of these projects with funding recommended to Northeast DC for a total of $73,000.

This year’s Our Town projects demonstrate again that art is as fundamental to a community’s success as land-use, transportation, education, housing, infrastructure, and public safety, helping build stronger communities that are diverse in geography and character. Since Our Town’s inception in 2011 and including these projects, the NEA will have awarded 256 Our Town grants totaling more than $21 million in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

The NEA grant will support Storefronts DC, to be implemented as Arts Connect Northeast, a series of art installations and creative pop-up projects to activate vacant spaces and connect adjacent neighborhoods.  As partnerships are a strategic priority for CulturalDC, we are delighted to partner with Atlas Performing Arts Center and the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (DCCAH) as well as local business owners, residents, and institutions, such as nearby Gallaudet University, to implement the project.  Local area artists will have the opportunity to create work for public display.  As many as eight vacant or public sites will be activated by artists, to serve the 200,000 residents living in the northeast D.C. neighborhoods of H Street, Benning Road, NoMa, and Union Market.

“Through Our Town funding, arts organizations continue to spark vitality that support neighborhoods and public spaces, enhancing a sense of place for residents and visitors alike,” said Chairman Chu.

“CultualDC is thrilled to be selected among the recipients of the NEA Our Town Grant. We applaud NEA’s for its efforts,” added CulturalDC Executive Director Juanita Hardy. “We know that art has the ability to transform communities, as we have experienced many times over our 16 years of working to “make space for art” in communities throughout the City.”

“The Atlas is pleased to join with Cultural DC to implement Arts Connect Northeast,” shares Atlas Executive Director Douglas Yeuell. “By leveraging Cultural DC’s visual arts experience and our network of dynamic performance artists we’ll reach beyond our doors to engage our neighbors and community with electric performances and arts experiences.”

“The Our Town grant from the NEA will allow us and our partners to showcase the vibrancy of our community through the arts,” said Lionell Thomas, Executive Director of the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.

The NEA received 275 applications for Our Town this year. Recommended grant amounts ranged from $25,000 to $200,000.

For a complete listing of projects recommended for Our Town grant support, please visit the NEA web site at www.arts.gov . Project descriptions, grants listed by state and by project type, and resources are available as well.

ADAM HAGER: BETWEEN FACT AND FICTION
August 8 – September 6 at Flashpoint Gallery
OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, August 8, 6-8PM

WASHINGTON, DCBetween Fact and Fiction, a solo exhibition of interactive sculpture by DC-based artist Adam Robert Hager, will be on display at Flashpoint Gallery from August 8 – September 6, 2014.  As an object maker, Hager creates inventions about the strangeness of everyday items as they relate to function and non-function.  He develops a relationship with mechanical objects through the process of taking them apart and transforms the history within them to make fictitious, strangely integrated, yet well-crafted combinations.

In Between Fact and Fiction, Hager offers a glimpse into his “mad scientist” approach to art making through a hands-on experience with his inventions.  Among the work in the gallery, viewers are invited to operate music boxes built into a spinal cord, throw a fastball with a drill motor, engage with a giant “cast-man” made from erector sets and body braces, and hand-crank clunky industrial gears that spin a graceful carousel of airplanes overhead.  Hager explains, “My new body of work feels both eerily dangerous as well as enticingly playful.”

By flirting between risky and lighthearted interaction, Hager intensifies the viewers’ impulse to operate objects for their intended purposes. However, by opposing natural functions, he challenges the associations people have with everyday items. While still referencing their origins, familiar objects develop new personalities, and interwoven relationships are established between unrelated items.

ABOUT THE ARTIST Adam Hager is an interdisciplinary artist who works in sculpture, drawing, and installation.  Originally from the Chicago area, he moved to Washington in 2010 following an artist residency at the Chautauqua Institution in western New York.  He received his MFA in 2012 from American University in Washington DC, where he currently lives and works. Hager has exhibited in the Chicago area and throughout the east coast. His work is a part of numerous collections including the District of Columbia’s Commission for the Arts and Humanities Art Bank, and he was recently honored to be one of this year’s Trawick Prize winners.

CulturalDC and George Mason University Announce Partnership at Flashpoint Gallery

Untitled

PRESS RELEASE
CONTACT: CARA POMPONIO
cara@culturaldc.org | 202.315.1330

WASHINGTON, DC – CulturalDC and George Mason University’s School of Art and Arts Management program are pleased to announce a mutually enriching collaboration that will bring more academic rigor to CulturalDC’s Visual Arts Program and provide real world experience in arts management for GMU Fellows (selected GMU Master degree Candidates).

CulturalDC’s Visual Arts Program, designed to bolster the careers of emerging contemporary artists by providing presenting, mentoring and other professional development opportunities, will be the platform for this artistic exchange. The combination of deep arts management experience informed by academic prowess offers exciting new possibilities for participating artists, GMU Fellows and associated art professionals. The collaboration encompasses CulturalDC’s Flashpoint Exhibition Program (six exhibitions from January – September 6, 2014) and its 2014-2015 Artist Exhibition Selection Process.

CulturalDC Executive Director Juanita Hardy and GMU School of Arts Director Peter Winant conceived of this partnership, which offers promising benefits to both organizations. “Partnerships and collaborations are a strategic priority for us and we are very excited to partner with the GMU School of Art,” said Hardy. “In addition to participating visual artists and CulturalDC’s artistic team, the collaboration combines distinguished curators and collectors from our Visual Art Advisory Panel and GMU graduate students, professors and researchers into a delicious creative stew.” Hardy envisions innovative new approaches to exhibition curation, programming and audience engagement.

GMU Fellows will work closely with the CulturalDC artistic team to execute six exhibitions at Flashpoint Gallery in the 2014 Season. GMU Fellows will also engage with CulturalDC’s Visual Art Advisory Panel to select exhibitions for the 2014-15 Flashpoint Season, enabling exchange with some of the most dynamic visual art leaders in the nation’s capital including panelists: Hasan Elahi, Artist and Associate Professor of Art, University of Maryland; Melissa Ho, Assistant Curator, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden; Laura Roulet, Independent Curator; Schwanda Rountree, Independent Curator and Collector, Rountree Art Consulting; Luis Silva, Artist and Associate Professor, American University; and Vesela Sretenovic, Senior Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, The Phillips Collection.

“Students will get to practice at CulturalDC what we preach in the classroom,” said Winant. “Our Fellows will be able to apply best practices in arts management and groundbreaking research while gaining new skills and experience that will better prepare them as art leaders of the future. They will also explore their creative sensibilities in ways that we expect will enrich and expand CulturalDC’s Visual Arts Program. It’s a win-win.”

The program leadership team includes CulturalDC’s Director of Artistic Programs Jenny McConnell Frederick and GMU Professors Nikki Brugnoli-Whipkey, Helen Frederick, Claire Huschle and Donald Russell. The 2014 collaboration will serve as a pilot program for what both organizations hope to be a deeper partnership in coming seasons.

CulturalDC purchased Flashpoint in June 2013, allowing the organization to secure a permanent foothold. The purchase ensures that emerging contemporary artists and small art organizations will have access to affordable space in Downtown Washington and that audiences will continue to be served there with affordable high quality theatre, art exhibitions, and other cultural programs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is CulturalDC undertaking a partnership with George Mason University?
Partnerships and collaborations that build on the collective strengths of the respective organizations is a strategic priority for CulturalDC. In June 2013, the CulturalDC board approved a strategic plan, which included partnerships and collaborations as a core value of the organization.

Flashpoint Gallery exhibits cutting-edge and experimental contemporary art and provides a springboard for emerging visual artists. Since opening in 2003, Flashpoint has exhibited the work of over 100 visual artists. Flashpoint Gallery encourages artists to take creative risks and explore new ideas in an environment free from commercial expectations.

Jenny McConnell Frederick, formerly CulturalDC’s Director of Performing Arts, has assumed the role of Director of Artistic Programs. Frederick is a theatre director and producer with more than 17 years experience working with professional artists in a variety of disciplines. Combining CulturalDC’s Visual and Performing Arts Departments under one leader provides a unique opportunity for artists to cross traditional barriers between disciplines and to benefit from a variety of partnerships and perspectives they might not otherwise encounter. Frederick’s team will consist of a mix of professionals with backgrounds in the visual and performing arts.

GMU’s School of Art and Arts Management program have excellent academic and personnel resources that align well with the attributes we seek in a University Partner: a highly skilled academic team of practicing artists and experienced arts administrators and researchers; Navigation Press, a state-of-the-art laboratory enabling innovation in printmaking, and Provisions Library, a resource for catalyzing art projects about social change. This partnership supports our commitment to create opportunities for artistic innovation by combining GMUs deep academic resources with CulturalDC’s 15-year history and extensive experience nurturing and enabling emerging contemporary artists both locally and nationally.

What does each respective organization expect to gain from this partnership?
CulturalDC and GMU are excited for the opportunity to work together to provide exciting hands-on professional development opportunities to the next generation of arts leaders . GMU Fellows will have the chance to learn the inner workings of a nonprofit gallery – from issuing a call to artists to exhibition installation, and from marketing an exhibition to closing a sale. Fellows will shadow Flashpoint Gallery’s Advisory Panel of prestigious visual arts leaders and observe the exhibition selection process, as well as support CulturalDC’s professional staff to implement the visual arts program.

Will CulturalDC continue its Visual Arts Program (exhibition and selection of emerging contemporary artists) in the future?
CulturalDC will continue its role as a leader in supporting emerging contemporary artists. An open call for artists and a distinguished advisory panel will continue to be the foundation of CulturalDC’s selection process. The panel, comprised of a rotating group of some of Washington’s most dynamic visual arts leaders, will continue to provide guidance and perspective during the selection process and later by serving as mentors to individual artists. The panelists for the current season are: Hasan Elahi, Artist and Associate Professor of Art, University of Maryland; Melissa Ho, Assistant Curator, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden; Laura Roulet, Independent Curator; Schwanda Rountree, Independent Curator and Collector, Rountree Art Consulting; Luis Silva, Artist and Associate Professor, American University; and Vesela Sretenovic, Senior Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, The Phillips Collection.

How or will CulturalDC’s Visual Arts Program change as a result of this announcement?
It is our hope that a partnership with GMU will yield a fresh new perspective for CulturalDC’s Flashpoint Gallery. GMU’s visual art and arts management graduate students will have the opportunity to gain real world experience and explore their ideas, while networking with industry leaders. CulturalDC’s reputation as the source of groundbreaking innovations will continue and expand.

What are the plans of the partnership after this exhibition season?
We see this as the beginning of a long and satisfying marriage. As we envision this long-term strategic partnership, our signature Flashpoint Gallery Program will continue and be bolstered by our partnership with GMU. At the same time, we will make space for fresh innovations in visual arts via exhibitions and programs that we will conceive and deliver together with GMU. The details of this long-term partnership will be shaped by our work together during this first phase, the current Flashpoint exhibition season, which continues through August 2014. We look forward to sharing exciting details over the coming months.

Is CulturalDC planning other partnerships?
Absolutely. CulturalDC is exploring strategic partnerships with other arts organizations whose work complements our mission and enables us to make even more space for art and serve even more artists and art organizations, as well as audience members in the DC region. CulturalDC purchased Flashpoint in June 2013, and will launch a campaign to renovate the space in order to maximize arts uses and cultivate sustainable strategic partnerships. Look for more details as our expanding partnerships unfold!

Lindsay Pichaske: Everything That Rises

PRESS RELEASE

January 17 – February 15, 2014 at FLASHPOINT GALLERY
OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, January 17, 6-8pm

WASHINGTON, DC – CulturalDC is pleased to announce Everything That Rises, a solo exhibition of installation and drawings at Flashpoint Gallery by DC-based sculptor Lindsay Pichaske. As a ceramic and mixed-media sculptor, Pichaske investigates the space between seemingly dualistic states of existence. Her installations, drawings and sculptures present creatures that are at once human and animal, familiar and alien, beautiful and grotesque, alive and dead.

In Everything That Rises, Pichaske will explore these overlapping worlds through two- and three-dimensional drawings made with hair. In her hair embroidery drawings, the artist uses human hair tied to muslin fabric to act as contour lines that depict various animals. The result is a grotesque yet elegant interplay of human and animal worlds. In the main gallery space, Pichaske will create a site-specific drawing installation that will transform the gallery into a giant web. Within an intricate network of strings attached to walls, ceiling and floor, she will articulate an abstracted skeletal animal drawn with human hair. The viewer will be able to enter into this web and interact with the creature inside.

The artist uses hair as a vital material in her work. She is attracted to the idea that hair separated from the body remains unchanged. She explains, “by neither growing or rotting, hair stays in a permanent in-between state, unaffected by time”. The ephemeral nature of Pichaske’s animal bodies drawn with hair examines this in-between state and blurs the lines between life and death.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Lindsay is a DC-based ceramic sculptor and mixed media installation artist. She received her MFA in Ceramics from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2010. Lindsay moved to the area in fall of 2012, after a year-long artist residency at the Archie Bray Foundation for Ceramics in Helena, MT, where she was the Taunt Fellow. This past year, Lindsay is the recipient of the NCECA (National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts) Emerging Artist Award. She has exhibited her work nationally, and is represented by Duane Reed Gallery in St. Louis, and Foster/White Gallery in Seattle, WA. This is her first exhibition of site-specific work in the DC area.

CulturalDC Announces Full-Length Play Lineup and Open Call for 10-Minute Plays

IMG_1512

PRESS RELEASE
CONTACT: JENNY MCCONNELL FREDERICK
jenny@culturaldc.org | 202.315.1306

WASHINGTON, DC – CulturalDC is pleased to announce the Source Festival 2014 Full-Length Play Line-up and Open-Call for 10-Minute Play Submissions.  The Festival, a vital launching pad for new work and a proving ground for Washington, DC’s theatre artists, runs from June 6-29, 2014.

The 2014 Source Festival will include A Bid to Save The World by Erin Bregman (multi-year finalist Princess Grace Award), Dontrell, Who Kissed The Sea  by Nathan Alan Davis (2012/13 Lorraine Hansberry Award Winner) and The Thrush & The Woodpecker by Steve Yockey (Marin Theatre National New Play Network Resident.) In addition, the Festival will produce 18 10-Minute Plays and three Artistic Blind Dates.

For the first time this year, playwrights will be invited to submit 10-Minute scripts specifically related to one of the major themes in the selected full-length plays. The 2014 themes are:

  • Mortality/Immortality: Seeking plays that address living forever or examine death from a fresh perspective.
  • Revenge: Seeking plays that address the need for retribution, large or small, comic or serious
  • Quests: Seeking plays that address the compelling pull to go on a journey to accomplish a specific task.

The deadline for submissions is January 10, 2014.  The eighteen 10-Minute plays chosen for production will be announced in March 2014.  For submission instructions and eligibility guidelines, please visit our website.

SOURCE FESTIVAL 2014 FULL-LENGTH PLAYS

(For playwright bios & headshots visit our website.  To see the list of 25 Finalists click here.)

A Bid to Save the World, by Erin Bregman
A Bid to Save the World is a dystopian epic, where several stories intermingle in a world without death. A pair of students study how it used to happen, one woman longs for a beloved brother, and a song of great sorrow and beauty is sung and sung again by a singer out of place and time. Death peels oranges that whittle away her thumbs, bargaining and bartering with the lost and bereaved. A rich man seeks to buy world peace. Librarians stack cards recording death. And while we watch the normality of their immortality, we may find ourselves asking, ‘what is living without death?’

Dontrell, Who Kissed the Sea, by Nathan Alan Davis
Eighteen-year-old Dontrell Jones the Third decides that it is his duty and destiny to venture into the Atlantic Ocean in search of an ancestor lost during the Middle Passage. But his family is not at all ready to abandon its prized son to the waters of a mysterious and haunting past. Blending poetry, humor, wordplay and ritual, Dontrell, Who Kissed the Sea is a present-day hero’s quest exploring the lengths and depths we must go to redeem history’s wrongs.

The Thrush & the Woodpecker, by Steve Yockey
In this modern take on a classic revenge play, Brenda Hendricks has her hands full dealing with her son Noah after he is expelled from a prestigious college and unexpectedly returns to their isolated Northern California home. When an elegant and mysterious woman arrives on their doorstep dragging along buried secrets and stories about mysterious birds, Brenda and Noah find their world turned upside down in ways both intimate and epic.

ABOUT SOURCE FESTIVAL
Source Festival combines the forces of rising talents with established artists. Driven by creativity, collaboration and invention, artists from across the nation present 25 new works—three Full-Length Plays, 18 10-Minute Plays and three Artistic Blind Dates—over three weeks in June. The relationships built here lay the path for the next generation of outstanding performing artists.

Now in its 7th year, Source Festival has built a reputation as a vital launching pad for new work and a proving ground for the city’s directors and designers. Emily Schwend’s play Splinters, which premiered at the 2010 Source Festival, was selected as one of six finalists for the American Theatre Critic Association’s 2011 Steinberg Award. Collapsing Silence, an Artistic Blind Date that debuted at the 2011 Festival, inspired the launch of Washington’s new interdisciplinary arts organization Force/Collision. In 2011, the Festival deepened its engagement with playwrights by inaugurating a script development weekend. The annual three-day workshop unites playwrights, dramaturges, actors and designers to further develop the three full-length plays featured each summer. In 2012, Source Festival launched a mentorship program wherein seasoned directors mentor early and mid-career 10-Minute Play directors. The 2013 Festival pioneered an undergraduate internship program for aspiring designers and producers.

Support for Source Festival, a CulturalDC project, is generously provided by Jon & NoraLee Sedmak, Daimler, The Weissberg Foundation and Washington Gas.

CulturalDC and Bozzuto Announce Opening of 27 Artist Studios at Monroe Street Market

Monroe Street Market
PRESS RELEASE
CONTACT: CARA POMPONIO
cara@culturaldc.org | 202.315.1330

WASHINGTON, DC – CulturalDC and The Bozzuto Group are pleased to announce that more than 40 artists are moving into the 27 artist studios at Monroe Street Market, a $200 million mixed-use community coming to the Brookland neighborhood. The artists are activating the spaces with practices as diverse as painting, photography, sculpture, literary arts, leather-working, jewelry-making, filmmaking and more.

CulturalDC was approached by Bozzuto Development and Abdo Development, the community’s developers, to serve as a liaison to the arts community and to activate 27 artist studios, an Arts Walk with an outdoor stage, and the Edgewood Arts Building that will enliven the new development at the Brookland-CUA metro station. With this project, CulturalDC continues its work in creative placemaking and cultivating space for art in the DC area.

Monroe Street Market features 27 artist studios ranging in size from 300 to 625 square feet. Ground floor studios line the Arts Walk, providing street front visibility and a prime retail opportunity ideal for artists. Studios feature porches along the Metropolitan Branch Trail, concrete floors, high ceilings and garage doors.

More than 40 artists will ultimately move into the studios, with many more artists and audiences served through the range of activities at the studios and in other arts uses throughout the site. (See below list of artists.)

A selection of the artists that have studios are:

Kate Krezel + Avner Ofer (Studio 4)
Kate Krezel and Avner Ofer are long-time Brookland residents and artists. Krezel is a National Geographic cartographer turned leather-worker and uses salvaged and reclaimed leather to create durable and functional one-of-a-kind products. Her signature pieces include “urban holsters” or pocket-belts designed to carry tablets, phones or wallets. Ofer is a travel photographer who goes off the beaten path to capture intimate moments and glimpses into other cultures. The couple will share the studio.

Cheryl Edwards (Studio 9)
Cheryl D. Edwards is a visual artist who works with oil, ink and acrylics. She studied at the Art Student League in New York and has exhibited in many shows in Washington, DC, Maryland, Virginia, New York, Miami, Texas and Hong Kong.

Leda Black + Marcelle Fozard + Annalisa Leonessa (Studio 15)
These three solo artists come from diverse and eclectic backgrounds. As a group, they use repurposed and discarded materials in combination with knitting, weaving or crochet to create temporary “yarn bomb” installations in their communities. They will also continue their individual artistic practices of jewelry-making, graphic design and painting at Monroe Street Market.

Alejandro Pintado (Studio 17)
Alejandro Pintado is a visual artist from Mexico City, who recently relocated to DC with his family. His multimedia and often site-specific work focuses on notions of place and identity and views landscape from historic memory. His most recent projects were based in London and Mexico City and he plans to use Washington, DC and the Brookland neighborhood as inspiration for a series of new works. Pintado also plans to use his studio for artist talks and critiques between artists and the general public.

Fred Joiner (Studio 25)
Fred Joiner is a poet/artist/curator who has been active in the literary arts scene in Washington, DC for over 15 years. He is a curator of literary and art-related events including the American Poetry Museum’s INTERSECTIONS Reading Series, Hillyer Artspace’s HOME Series, The Phillips Collection’s Voices Series and others. Joiner is also the literary editor the peer-reviewed scholarly hip-hop journal Words, Beats and Life and the Tidal Basin Review. He plans to use the studio as a workspace for his writing activities, collage and assemblage work, and as a small reading room with selections from his personal library. Additionally, Joiner will host poetry readings, workshops and small master classes.
