A grin behind the shiver
Works by Camilo Velasquez and Doug Rhodehamel at Maitland Art Center are somber, yet inspire change
Published: January 18, 2012
Dialogue: Camilo Velasquez
Through Jan. 22 at the Maitland Art Center
231 W. Packwood Ave., Maitland
Closing soon at the Maitland Art Center is a show by Colombian artist Camilo Velasquez, and if you seek introspective contemplation and are strong of heart, look no further than this intriguing body of work. At Culture & Cocktails, the Art Center’s monthly second-Friday open house, this show was coupled with Doug Rhodehamel’s rather somber BLUMP, a one-night-only installation. Taken together, the art imparted a sense of ominous foreboding.
