Sondheim Semi-Finalist Exhibition
What’s on view: 54 Semi-finalists for the Sondheim Prize held inside several MICA Galleries. Lots of sculpture, lots of photographs, and a few paintings that made the short list for the Sondheim Prize, an annual open call juried exhibition for baltimore-area artists. (This includes artists living in cities like Washington.) There’s no theme, and no attempt to forge one. All the galleries were crammed with work.
Michael Anthony Farley: Really, I think everyone has the same complaint every year: there is just too much stuff! No matter what strategies are employed, the show just always feels overhung and uneven.
Paddy Johnson: Honestly, I think you’re being overly-generous to this show. It was terrible.
