On Display: “Witching Hour”
– The Residents Collective (TRC)
The Residents Collective (TRC) is pleased to announce the opening of Witching Hour, featuring artists MK Bailey, Mills Brown, Kate Fleming, Billy Friebele, Khadija Jahmila, Zia Palmer, Pam Rogers, Tom Woodruff, and Lenora Yerkes. The group exhibition marks TRC’s second annual presentation, in alignment with their continued partnership with Capitol Hill Arts Workshop (CHAW).
The breadth of artworks exhibited are selected by Anisa Olufemi, curator, cultural worker, and Fellowship Manager at Hamiltonian Artists. About the show, Olufemi states, “Witching Hour is an expansive, spellbinding storybook for all ages. Its contents spill over with otherworldly illustrations and abstractions, weaving together photo, video, painting, collage, sculpture and drawing. In this exhibition, veils are lifted—things that lie beneath the surface of murky waters are brought to light, shadow selves and silhouettes serve as main characters while forgotten ghost towns offer portals into the past.”
“There is a dark side, both visual and thematic, present within many of the artworks. However with closer observation, viewers will discover unexpected plot twists—scenes of climax and aftermath saturated in color and light. With an air of eeriness situated somewhere between the surreal and familiar, Witching Hour is an exhibition that haunts, and enchants.”
ABOUT THE RESIDENTS COLLECTIVE: The Residents Collective was founded in 2021 as a way to connect, support, and showcase alumni of Capitol Hill Arts Workshop’s artist residency programs. TRC brings together artists in a variety of mediums, showcasing their distinct talents and perspectives. The group hosts annual, curated shows and maintains a flat file program of its members’ work. Current members include: MK Bailey, Mills Brown, Kate Fleming, Billy Friebele, Khadija Jahmila, Zia Palmer, Pam Rogers, Tom Woodruff, and Lenora Yerkes.
