Current Exhibition

I'm Fine

June 5–July 28, 2017

Opening Reception: Wednesday, June 7, 6–8 pm


Fueled by an interest in the notion of art as a means of catharsis, I’m Fine presents artworks that investigate narratives of personality, process, and release. Whether art-making amplifies emotions or mitigates them, all creative endeavors echo one step in the process of self-exploration. The works in the exhibition examine and respond to the following questions: How does the practice of making art participate in (or disrupt) the process of personal development? Can art adequately translate the variable ways conceptions of “self” operate? How does creativity alleviate or intensify emotion? In what ways does art comment on—and participate in—mental health and self-care? To what extent is art a mouthpiece for the mind in flux or an independent and evolving entity?

The exhibition includes painting, sculpture, photography, and video, and features work by Emma Brand (Skidmore College ’17), Rachael Carruthers (UMCP ’17), Brandon Chambers (UMCP ’17), Dana Hollister (UMCP ’17), Tam-anh Nguyen (UMCP ’17), Nicole Osborne (MFA, GWU ‘18), and Susannah Ward (Catholic University ’17).

Curated by Stamp Gallery docents Tasiana Paolisso (B.S. Architecture 2018) Sarah Schurman (B.A. English 2017)
