Hamiltonian Gallery is pleased to present Gathering Space, an exhibition by Hamiltonian fellow Timothy Thompson. The exhibition will run from March 30 – May 4, 2013. Please join us for an opening reception on Saturday, April 6 from 7 – 9 pm and an artist talk on Tuesday, April 16 at 7 pm.
Timothy Thompson broadens his exploration on the perception of place in Gathering Space, a site-specific installation that intersects Hamiltonian’s 1,800 square foot gallery. Abandoning his usual sculptural materials such as iron and wood for hand-sewn nylon fabric and fiberglass rods, Thompson creates sculptures that act as both conduits through the gallery and formidable monumental barriers. As they move amongst the sculptures, viewers are asked to reconsider how they navigate and perceive a physical space.
Timothy Thompson received his BA in Studio Art from The University of Maryland College Park in 2009 and his MFA in Sculpture from the Rinehart School of Sculpture at MICA in 2011. Recent exhibitions include the Fall Solos at the Arlington Arts Center and Adventure Residency Headquarters at the Flashpoint Gallery in Washington, DC. Timothy lives and works in Takoma Park, MD.
