In “Power/Dynamic” Steven Durow explores social dynamics as they relate to authority, fealty, ownership, protection and submission and how that is revealed in personal, and even intimate relationships as well as in political, social and work settings. Abstracting his ideas with glass sculpture, Durow presents supine forms that are tightly bound and corseted along with freestanding works that seem to stand watch. It is hard to tell if they are captors or protectors or even both.

Steven Durow lives and works in Salisbury, MD where he is Assistant Professor of Art and head of the glass and 3D programs at Salisbury University. He studied at Anderson University and at Pilchuck Glass School; Durow achieved his MFA at Tulane, where he specialized in large scale glass sculpture and installation works.

In “Harbor Studies” Margaret Boozer shares the preparatory “sketches” of her recent commission called “Harbor” which was installed at the new MGM Grand National Harbor located on the banks of the Potomac near Washington, DC. The final installation was a massive 18’x30’ topographical map that was made with over 10,000 pounds of raw clays, scrap rebar and even roots from the construction site. The studies range in size from 2’-12’ in size, explore the topography with maps, and material studies all made out of clays clays from the dig site.

Margaret Boozer lives and works in Mt Ranier, MD. She studied at Auburn University and achieved her MFA at Alfred University; she has exhibited throughout the United States in galleries, university art centers and museums including the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the Museum of Art and Design and the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
