Press Release

Westminster, Md., September 11, 2019— Carroll Community College will be hosting a variety of art exhibitions this fall by students and regionally and nationally celebrated visual artists.  Exhibitions are available for viewing in three locations at the College:  the Gallery in the Scott Center, the Babylon Great Hall, and the Langdon Art Gallery.

GALLERY IN THE SCOTT CENTER:

L.O.S.T. Gate: The Art of Ariston Jacks

Opening Reception Date:  Thursday, September 26
Opening Recpetion Time:  4:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Exhibit Run Dates:  Thursday, September 26 – Saturday, November 2

From the artist:  “Guided by the spirit realm, research, and the oral tradition of my Father, I construct a modern mythology centered in truth and impending prophecy. The L.O.S.T. Gate (Legacy of Supreme Triumph) series documents my ancestral heritage through veiled images that are filled with secret messages and sacred geometry presented through a contemporary lens. These mythical narratives of family, archetype, and icon illuminate the spirit of man by chronicling discerning perspectives which illustrate the human condition outside of the edited scope of mainstream culture."

Ariston Jacks is a Baltimore based artist with a MA in Painting & Printmaking from University of Arkansas. His work has been exhibited widely throughout the American South and East Coast. You can find him online at aristonjacks.com and on Instagram at @art_i_sun.
