Christopher Kojzar completed a 2-year artist-in-residence at the Creative Alliance in Baltimore, and he is a new IMDA MFA candidate. He and his mother's new exhibition, Inside/Outside, is a mix of drawing, digital media and installation that will feature prints and sculptures by Christopher, and his mother, Oletha DeVane. Congratulations to Christopher and Oletha.

A mix of drawing, digital media and installation, Inside / Outside combines the prints and sculptures of Oletha DeVane and Christopher Kojzar. This mother / son collaboration reflects on the balance between home, family, and meditations on the external and internal world. DeVane's work combines mythic narratives and uses natural elements, beads, paint, and glass to form mosaic columns and trees. Her prints use a variety of imagery that refers to the sacred, and recurrent themes of black history and culture. Kojzar's new work combines large-scale drawings, weavings, and room-sized installations with video and digital prints that feature members of the community.
