Transformer Participates in (e)merge art fair

Transformer features artists Mariah Anne Johnson, Andrew Kozlowski and Heather Ravenscroft + selected works from our FlatFile program in Rooms 201 & 202 at the 2nd Annual (e)merge art fair!

Transformer is excited to present DC based artists Mariah Anne Johnson and Heather Ravenscroft, and Alabama based artist Andrew Kozlowski, in the 2012 (e)merge art fair. Each of these artists brings a unique approach to the idea of mapping with the new works they have created specifically for Transformer’s participation in (e)merge. Johnson’s dense stacks of perfectly folded bed sheets and pillow cases convey the idea of sedimentary mappings, while Kozlowski and Ravenscroft’s drawing and prints are reminiscent of deconstructed road and treasure maps. Kozlowski works directly with roadway imagery in screen-printing while Ravenscroft eludes to animal burrows and tracks in her ink and colored pencil drawings.

As Transformer’s primary fundraising event, our Annual Silent Auction & Benefit Partyis an extension of our overall cutting edge aesthetic.  Providing essential support for Transformer’s dynamic year-round programming, exhibitions, and services – our Annual Auction is one of the most exciting events of the fall arts season celebrated by a diverse range of artists, collectors, gallerists, entrepreneurs, and arts enthusiasts.

Last year, Kate Oczypok, The Washington Scene writer for The Hill interviewed renowned international art collectors and long time Transformer supporters Heather & Tony Podesta, who highly recommended Transformer’s Annual Auction as a great event to purchase work and build your art collection: “There’s a lot of very good younger artists out there and their work is inexpensive,” he said. “For the price of a night on the town you can get a great piece of art instead.”


Many thanks to our Diplomatic Chair, The Ambassador of Spain, His Excellency Ramón Gil-Casares.

Additional thanks to the Embassy of Spain's professional network SPAIN RED
for their collaboration with Transformer in featuring works by emerging
Spanish artists in the Auction this year.
