As I’m sure you are all aware, October is almost over. As tragic as this is, it means that it’s time for another First Friday Art on the Town!

This coming Friday there are several very exciting events going on at the DCCA. Boshko Boskovic’s new show Not So Distant Memory is opening at the DCCA and Boskovic will be giving a gallery talk at 6:30 p.m.

Now if that wasn’t exciting enough, three of the MFA Biennial artists will also be at the DCCA! Emily Erb, Elizabeth Hamilton, and Erica Prince will be giving a gallery talk after Boskovic. Also, a little  insiders’ information, one of the MFA artists (I won’t tell you which) will have a piece of her work available for purchase. So make sure you come down to the DCCA this Friday and check out the show!

Also, keep those votes coming! Currently, Steven Riddle is in the lead with 54% of the votes, followed by Guy Loraine with 13%! Note: the system will only let you vote once! Click here to vote!

The Masters of the Vision Universe opening was fantastic. The DCCA was filled for the Biennial’s debut with visitors of all ages. Many of the MFA artists were there – to name a few: Emily Erb, Ted Walsh, Erica Prince, and all of the Towson artists. The MFA artists answered questions and discussed their work with guests. “MFA?”, the interactive video exhibition created by the Towson MFA students, was a hit. Visitors enjoyed walking in front of a green screen and seeing themselves projected within the students’ videos. Maiza Hixson, the show’s curator, gave an enlightening talk on Masters of the Visual Universe and its artists. Maiza also announced the Gretchen Hupfel Prize for Contemporary Art. The prize was awarded to Guy Loraine for his works, Fuller and Grand Boxes (stacked containing sheets, acorns, and caps) and Grand Work Table with Ledgers and Twine.

Fuller and Grand Boxes (stacked containing sheets, acorns and caps), 2011, Pine, Sisal Rope, Plastic, Paint, boxes 48″ x 26.25″ x 26.25″, 15057 caps and acorns, 996 24″ x 24″ plastic sheets.
