Sept. 1-Oct. 15: Large-scale artwork exhibit

FREDERICK, Maryland—Tanya Ziniewicz will display large-scale drawings and paintings in the Whitaker Campus Center Gallery Sept. 1 through Oct. 15 as part of the 125th anniversary celebration of Hood.

Ziniewicz’s work investigates subtleties of human interaction through a network of organic linear forms. In her artist statement, Ziniewicz says: “The accidental, overlooked, and underestimated are extremely precious … in conversation, words often do not convey as much information as awkward silences, changes in breath during thought, or accumulations of perspiration during moments of tension. My work is about observations of subtleties in human nature, the vague shift between emergence and disappearance, and the interdependency of positive and negative spaces as they explain one another’s existence.”

In 2003, Tanya earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Drawing from the Cleveland Institute of Art. She then completed a Master of Fine Arts in Printmaking from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2006. She currently resides in Baltimore and teaches printmaking and foundations at Towson University.

The exhibit is free and open to the public, and the gallery will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. A reception will be held Sept. 1 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. For more information about her work, visit Ziniewicz’s website at For more information about the exhibit, contact Jenna Gianni at 240-315-6846 or
