Reception: Saturday, July 13th, 8 - 11p

On view weekends and by appointment until August 24th.

Gallery Four presents the group exhibition Ephemeral Arena during Artscape 2013. The opening reception will commence after the announcement of the winner of the 2013 Sondheim Prize at the Walters Museum.

Four diverse artists: James Bouche, Alesha Burk, Joyce Yu-Jean Lee, and Nara Park invent images and forms that reference elusive space. By distorting and reconfiguring familiar surfaces, architecture, and landscape; each artist creates work that challenges our perception of the real. Their enigmatic spaces are difficult to place, both nowhere and everywhere at once, simultaneously generic and specific.

Gallery Four is a 10,000 sq. ft. facility featuring six live/work artist studios and a contemporary art exhibition space. Gallery Four is located in downtown Baltimore's H&H building.

Grateful for the reviews and photos in the Huffington Post and the Washington Post!
