Alive and Animated in the Natural World: The Art of Ed Coffey
Sunday, Sept. 14 – Thursday, Oct. 16
Reception: Sunday, Sept. 14,  2 – 4 p.m.

Born and raised in Chicago, Ed Coffey “played around” (making art) all of his life.
His late mother referred to his efforts as "Ed's foolishness" but supported his artistic ambitions, nevertheless. Eventually, his "foolishness" landed him an animation career in Los Angeles where he drew special effects for Disney Dreamworks and others for more than 20 years. He worked on animated film projects in both London and Munich.

Now in Cumberland, MD, he creates paintings that express the culture shock of a city dweller surrounded by the natural world, organic and biological. Those elements are clearly evident even in his more abstract work. He describes his process as The Mad Scientist school of art, “It’s alive, alive!” Coffey’s experimentation and experience go hand in hand to create his little monsters. He says, “Enjoy the show, just don't get too close.”


An Introspective Journey: Textile Assemblage by Boisali Biswas
Sunday, Nov. 2 – Friday, Dec. 11
Reception: Sunday, Nov. 2,  2 – 4 p.m.

Boisali Biswas believes that “a work of art bears the stamp of individuality and the national bearing of its creator when it springs from inner self and is devoid of any pretensions.” She has always had a deep-rooted attachment to the traditional art forms of her culture-rich homeland, India, and owes much to its captivating traditional patterns and rich array of colors. Adapting western styles and techniques to her lifelong fascination for ethnic arts around the world, Biswas creates powerful multicultural assemblages that she regards as “wordless conversations” between herself and the art. These textiles are masterworks of texture, color, pattern and loving skillful craft honed through the practice of time-honored technique and deep regard for tradition.

Her formative years were spent at Visva-Bharti International University, founded by the Nobel Laureate, Rabindranath Tagore and the essence of that profound experience stays with her and inspires her after two decades away. Her Master of Fine Arts is from Bowling Green State University. Now in West Bloomfield, MI, Biswas continues her journey of quiet introspection; the results of which are extraordinary works of art.

About Music: The Art of Jack Gurecki
Sunday, Nov. 2 – Thursday, Nov. 20
Reception: Sunday, Nov. 2, 2 – 4 p.m.

Jack Gurecki is a Computer Graphic Design student at Carroll, and these are his words:

I was born in Westminster, MD and since then, I have lived in three other cities. Cliché as it sounds, I’ve been creating artwork ever since I could hold a pencil. I started with sketching, then switched to pen and ink, then to digital drawing, and finally to vector design. Though I still enjoy working with each medium, I find vector art to be the most catching and visually pleasing to the eye.

Though most of my art is visual, my favorite form of art is music. I can’t go a single day without it. Whenever I make visual art, there is always music playing behind me. It cheers me up when I’m down, it takes me to new worlds when I need inspiration, and it makes me feel connected to the world. I love music so much I’ve even joined a band. The labors spent on bringing my skills in visual art into a representation of what I feel with music have been some of the most fulfilling moments of my life.
