For the past ten years James Singewald has been living and working in Baltimore, MD. This body of work and self published book titled Old Town, East Baltimore focuses on the failed urban renewal project in East Baltimore known as Old Town Mall, formerly Gay Street, now a desolate two block pedestrian mall just east of the downtown area. James spent years studying the city’s history and speaking with life-long residents and business owners, getting a sense of what the mall used to be and the current resident's hopes for its future.  His work questions why so much of the neighborhood is in poor condition and explores possibilities for it's improvement. James has photographed each of the buildings on the mall, creating a historical document of a neighborhood left to ruin.

Aquemini DreamS: Geborgenheit

August 20th - October 4th, 2017

Aquemini Dreams is the artistic collaboration of husband and wife team, Raeann and Kaheem Thomas. Their work is inspired by Cult Films, Classic movie posters, Art Nouveau and Graffiti to create a Film Noir style soaked in 90's graphic design. Their process is guided by emotions; playing off each other's strengths, taking guidance from both their lives, past and present.

Jombi Supastar: Jombi

Using paint and collage Jombi’s work brings to light a world peopled by mythic, creatures, ecstatic monsters and demonic angels. His scenes tell a story of a complicated universe that exists in a state of constant creation; each garden of cosmic delights offers new surprises upon viewing. These mythic narratives tell a familiar story with no specific end, and no moral or judgment. Jombi’s work investigates the subconscious, the realms of the nether world and nature spirits. He thinks of his works as “an expression of the multi-dimensionality of perception, and the many layered nature of my spirituality and sexuality.” These works are used as a method to ground the artist, through his love of painting, and to share that joy with viewers. They encourage us to experience the world with wonder.

His work uses play to delight with modernist forms and intense color. He employs the use of objects from the everyday, brightly colored packaging and glittery trinkets, which both ground the work and give it levity. Inspired at a young age by the works of Matisse, and later by Bosch, Blake, Haring, and Basquait; Jombi, a self-taught artist, makes dense works that combine styles informed by a history of artful pranksters. He has insisted that experiencing the works of these artists in person inspired and informs his process, to receive the artworks energy in person. That energy is both amplified and renewed in his spectacular collages.
