Workers in Ellicott City by KD Weeks

A Line in Time to open June 21st

The Catonsville Presbyterian Church announces the opening of a new art show--A Line in Time. The show highlights line as language, and line as art.

The centerpiece of three illustrated poems represents a nearly spontaneous collaboration by writer Kay Weeks, who lives in Historic Ellicott City, and Brooklyn, New York artist, Hiroshi Kimura. With the exception of Mr. Kimura, the artists featured are women. They live in Catonsville, Columbia, Ellicott City, Washington DC, New York, and Seattle and include Denee Barr, Rachel Coleman, Kim Parr, Rebecca Weber, Margaret Scott, Roxie Munro, Doreen Starling, Lora Robertson, Kathy Taylor, and Virginia Bates.

Still another form of the line comes into play here: the timeline. The artists range in age from the 30s to the 80s with several stops in between, so the individual and collective experience is rich and varied. The connective tissue is spirit, honesty, power, and openness. Come expecting to be fully engaged.

The show will open on June 21st and runs through August 1, 2009 at the Church’s Let There Be Light Art Gallery. The reception will be held on Sunday, June 21st from 11:45 am to 1 pm at the Catonsville Presbyterian Church on 1400 Frederick Road, Catonsville, Maryland 21228. The gallery is located on the Frederick road entrance at the top of the stairs to the right.

Artomatic is a month-long art festival in DC that is free to the general public celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. Monument Realty and the Capitol Riverfront BID have provided a brand-new 275,000 square foot building to host Artomatic, right next to the Nationals Stadium. The event features nine floors of visual and installation art, theater performances, dance and comedy, three music stages, street performances such as fire dancing and drum troupes, and a film screening theater. Workshops and seminars are held all month long and special events such as the Washington Post's Peeps diorama finalists, the Zombie Prom, Box Racing, body paint shows, and a no-holds-barred Art in Fashion Show.

With four stages, four bars and a lounge on each floor, the 10th Anniversary Artomatic is bigger than ever. 52,500 people attended Artomatic last year, and 70,000 are expected this year. Over 1,000 visual artists and 600 performing artists are exhibiting this year.
