Please join Artemis Herber on Saturday, October 13 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM to celebrate the opening of Arlington Art Center’s fall exhibition, Fall SOLOS 2018. Engage with Artemis and other artists from the exhibition and visit the residents during their open studio hours.

The artists of Fall SOLOS 2018 examine landscapes, investigate personal histories, and analyze the ways physical objects communicate meaning and help us understand the world.

In her large-scale works made primarily of cardboard, Artemis Herber explores the significance of deep time and the environmental impact of mankind in the Anthropocene. The title of Herber’s SOLOS project, Autochthon, points to her interest in Greek mythology and in human relationships to geologic forms.

German-born artist Artemis Herber has exhibited throughout the US, Germany, UK, Italy, and Spain. Highlights include exhibitions at Kunstverein Paderborn (Paderborn, Germany), Spartanburg Art Museum (Spartanburg, SC), San Jose Museum of Art (San Jose, CA), National Trust’s Newark Park and Cheltenham Art Gallery & Museum (Gloucestershire, UK) and Albright-Knox Art Gallery (Buffalo, NY). Herber is a Public Art: Baltimore Sculpture Project prize recipient and a Sondheim Artscape Prize Semifinalist. Herber has recently mounted solo exhibitions at McLean Projects for the Arts (McLean, VA), King Street Gallery, Montgomery College (Takoma Park, MD) and The Delaplaine Arts Center (Frederick, MD). As curator for Transatlantic Cultural Projects (Germany), Herber organized Micro-Monuments at the Salzlandmuseum and the Center for Hellenic Studies at Harvard University and Micro-Monuments II – Underground at IA&A at Hillyer (Washington, DC).
