Erin Fostel: A Measure of Place
Amalie Rothschild Gallery
Event Type: exhibitions
On view: Oct 27 – DEC 1
Opening reception: Friday, October 27 | 6 – 8pm
Erin Fostel explores and documents mood, atmosphere, and the immensity of grief in her haunting charcoal drawing of the architecture of Baltimore.
Born and raised in Baltimore, Erin spent her early years copying characters out of her brother’s comic books, and writing highly dramatic soap operas on her grandmother’s typewriter. A love for drawing and storytelling led her to the Maryland Institute College of Art. Upon graduating in 2004 she stayed in Baltimore and has maintained a studio in various locations around town, including a cold dark basement infested with prehistoric-sized crickets where she couldn’t stand up straight. She loves to draw. Even though she appreciates that the world is full of amazing colors she enjoys pushing the tonal boundaries of charcoal, which is her primary medium.
