FREDERICK, Md.—An exhibit of photographs, sculptures and installations by Baltimore artist Max Guy will be on display September 5 through 28 in the Hodson Gallery at Hood College.
A reception is scheduled for September 5 from 5 to 7 p.m., followed by an artist talk from 7 to 8 p.m., both in the gallery.
This body of work, entitled Despair, presents a view into the working process of an artist. Guy's minimal and witty work draws attention to his existential dilemma of why artists create art by playfully using and experimenting with subjects such as mirrors, text, clocks and silhouettes.
Guy earned a bachelor of fine arts degree from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2011. He is co-founder of Spiral Cinema, a public film program that hosts screenings, publications and events investigating the evolving definition of cinema. He is a member of the curatorial duo Szechuan Best—founded as an apartment gallery in Baltimore—as well as a member of Open Space Gallery, formerly located in Remington, Baltimore.
A curator, artist and writer, Guy's work has been exhibited in numerous Baltimore galleries, including Guest Spot, Penthouse Gallery, Current Space and Nudashank.
The Hodson Gallery is open daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
