The Chazan Gallery is presenting a group show with works by Hannah Antalek, Harrison Bucy, Jenn Houle, Anne Rogers, Margaret Rogers and Jodi Stevens from January 17 to January 30, 2014. There will be an opening reception for the artists on Friday, January 17, from 5.00 – 7.00 p.m. The public is invited.
Hannah Antalek graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2013 with a BFA in painting and a concentration in art history. Born in Albany, New York, she now lives and works in Brooklyn. Hannah's work explores identity performance with a particular focus on women (herself included) and the internal and external influences that allow them to curate their self-image in the public sphere.
Anne Rogers hasworked, in recent years,on aseries of immersive installations that drew their source material and inspiration from interior spaces in which she has lived. Thisbody of work wasmade as a mnemonic exercise. It involves a process of sorting personal history as well as questioning the perceived authority ofobjects commonly used to access the past, such asphotographs and historic artifacts.
Margaret Rogers was born and raised in St. Paul, Minnesota. She graduated with honors from Knox College in 2006, and earned her MFA from The Maryland Institute College of Art in 2012. Her work frequently explores broad themes of domestic life, often employing handmade craft materials to illustrate domestic spaces, apparatuses and household labor. She uses lightweight, fragile, and often degradable materials that cannot actually function as the objects and spaces that they represent. In this way the objects become punch lines. Margaret was a 2012 recipient of a Full Fellowship Award to the Vermont Studio Center. Her work has been shown in Minnesota, Illinois, Maryland, and New York. She lives and works in Baltimore, Maryland.
