UPDATE :  Public Determines Addition to Private  Media Art Collection

 
 
On Tuesday evening - April 24th - an art lecture included an unprecedented participatory twist.‎ Three screens outside the exhibition Glistening:Nature Mirrored in Video Art, featured  works by a young Venezuelan artist, Miguel Braceli.

 

Those attending Tom Stoner's talk about the evolution of his and his wife's collection were asked to weigh-in with their recommendations regarding which of the three Braceli's would best augment works shown in Glistening. Over half of those gathered posted their ballots on the bulletin board outside the show. The tally among 78 votes leaned slightly toward IRAZU, a performance intervention shot atop a volcano in Costa Rico. 

Stoner reflects:  

"Kitty and I are thrilled that the community deeply engaged in the collection showing at Maryland Hall. The topper was when so many were inspired to vote on which work should be next to enhance the collection.The enthusiasm for Irazu was the greatest but enough (voters) felt the three belong together that we have decided to add all three.Thanks to all‎!"

Reached with this news, in his studio in Caracas, the artist, who'd given his blessing to this unorthodox endeavor responded:‎ 

"Thanks to all who contributed ballots. Kudos to the Stoner's for their embrace of public input.  I am moved by your recognition that my works  interface with the themes in this exceptional collection. This imaginative process felt very near to the spirit  my art practice. It provided another way to connect people, experiences and ideas."

Braceli has received a Fulbright Fellowship he will serve at Maryland College of Art Institute, beginning this Fall. Glistening closes May 5th.

Ballot comments included reflections such as  :  

"We experience the beauty, the vastness, solitude + nurturing spirit of nature - comforting and anchoring in today's crazy, frantic and often frightening, disturbing world.‎" 

‎"... #2 captures the best of the three. But (in the procession depicted in #3 the desert seen as a beach)  ‎ Time and nature will reclaim the earth, after and in spite of the impact of human intervention‎.‎"

‎"Each draws out ideas in Glistening  - all strong,  elegant.‎"

As a regional artist living in Edgewater I am surrounded by inspiring natural woodland and water’s edge scenery.  I see nature as reminder of my connection to the whole of creation. My creative inspiration comes from the textures, colors and patterned rhythms of life. I work in a variety of painting, drawing and multi-media techniques depicting diverse subjects as both a professional fine artist and illustrator. I am also a healing arts practitioner and strive to create a healing intent in all of my artwork. This includes being able to sense a palpable subtle healing energy peacefully emanating from my artwork.

Children's Art
E-mail: 

Holly Rosario was born in rural upstate New York, and spent her childhood exploring its forested terrain. Introverted and aesthetically curious by nature, Holly was interested in art from a young age. In 2007 she moved to Baltimore to attend the Maryland Institute College of Art where she pursued her Bachelors of Fine Arts in conjunction with a Master of Arts in Teaching. While at MICA, she developed an interest in watercolor, inks, paper cuts, and ceramics as well as a passion for art history.

As an artist, Rosario’s papercut works and watercolors are inspired by a love of nature on its most minuscule levels, and explore the role of pattern and repetition in the processes of growth and decay. Rosario spent three years as an Elementary Art Teacher with Baltimore County Public Schools. She sees her pursuits as artist and educator as inseparably intertwined, and hopes to facilitate transformative learning by sharing her passion for the visual world. Holly teaches visual arts classes for children.
