Hey, there aren't any pictures!

If you are viewing this on your phone or on your desktop, you will notice that the only pictures you see are the ones within the blog posts.

In an effort to be mobile-friendly and with the promise of new things to come (just not quite yet), we are prioritizing the read-ability of this blog.

And if you would really like a picture, I can put this one in here:

Creeping Every Day: Sketching without being too Sketchy


January/February 2015
Jan 20 through February 28, 2015 
Eric Gordon 

Much of the show is never before displayed paintings, drawings, and collage including the "Beauty at the End of All Things" series which has been in the works for a number of years.  Don't not be a creep.  Come and check it out.

"Creeper" Drawing Workshop
Friday - January 30th
7:10pm-8:30pm
I'll be leading a "Creeper" drawing workshop. All supplies provided by me and all skill levels are welcome. It's an all age appropriate workshop, but if you're bringing a young person they should be at least somewhat accustomed to the idea of drawing from life and be a little fearless. It should be a fun time. You might even learn sum thin'.

Reception
Friday, February 13, 2015
6:30 to 8:30pm 
Refreshment provided and maybe I'll even bring some surprises.

Events are free and open to the public. Join us.

Light Dancing: a photo exhibit at Kefa Cafe, Silver Spring, MD


OCTOBER/NOVEMBER
October 6 through November 15, 2014
Alexandra Calloway, Light Dancing (Photographs)

Reception: 
Friday, October 24, 2014, 6:30 to 8:30pm
Kefa Cafe
963 Bonifant St., Silver Spring, MD
Join us—free and open to the public.

Light Dancing is a series of photographs that I created with the help of my children. I was inspired by an accidental image that I took a few years ago on the Fourth of July. The children were waving colored light sticks around when I took a photograph. The shutter remained open for an extended time, capturing the light as it moved. The image that was created intrigued me. I decided that I would experiment more with this process.

For these images, I used different light sources with different exposure times. The process is all about intuition and surprise because of how all the variables work together – none of them are controlled. The light sources include chemical glow sticks, a light toy called a “Firefly”, and colored LED lights. Some of the pictures are created by my children dancing and moving around with the lights. Others are created by moving the camera to create the motion. The images are varied and unique - bright and colorful.

This is my inaugural show as a solo artist. Over the past several years, my photography has been displayed at Bowie City Hall as part of the Art Committee’s quarterly juried art shows. Prints have also been displayed at the Bowie Center for the Performing Arts and at the Kossiakoff Center at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory.

Giving back to the community is important to me. I donate a portion of the profits from selling my art to various causes – particularly to my children’s schools to support art classes there.

I see art everywhere. I believe that art is necessary in our lives and I believe art is accessible to everyone. Throughout my entire life, I have created art in various forms. I typically have a camera on hand. My favorite shots are those where I try to look at the world from a different perspective.
