Tuttle Gallery - Visual Arts - McDonogh School

Tuttle Gallery

For years, Katherine Dilworth has been working with her landscape photographs, nudging them to a place slightly more dreamlike or imagined. By incorporating images of fabrics and textures, she captures how a place felt, not just how it looked. Recently, she has pushed her images further, printing them on fabrics and textured papers and treating them more like patterns and cloth. Visit the Tuttle Gallery through Friday, February 17, and be transported to a place somewhere between dream and reality.

Dilworth's works have been shown in galleries throughout the U.S. and Europe as well as included in books on fiber art and photography. She also works as a visiting artist in schools through the nonprofit Arts for Learning Maryland, sharing fiber arts techniques with students and teachers in arts-integrated lessons. She will be working with Evelyn Hoffman’s Lower School art classes.

Mookntaka’s Friends and Follies

Tuttle Gallery | November 17 - December 16, 2022 
Reception: Thursday December 1, 2022 12:05-12:50

Take a moment from the nonstop demands of life and experience the joyful reverie that is Mookntaka’s Friends and Follies on exhibit in the Tuttle Gallery. Mookntaka’s Friends and Follies are an ever-growing cast of inflatable characters. Normally on the move, they can be found crossing the street or catching waves at the beach, as the Friends and Follies enjoy finding the perfect spot to rest, play, and offer a moment of respite from everyday routine. They have themselves taken a break from the road and are taking up residence in the Tuttle Gallery until December 16.

Along with the inflatable friends in the main gallery, get a peek behind the curtain at how Mookntaka experiments with different mediums to design Friends and Follies in the side gallery. Paper mache sculptures help visualize forms, watercolors mimic the hand-dyed nylon, and ink drawings envision the sculptures as a cast of characters.

About the artists

Mookntaka (MOO-kin-tah-kah) is the Brooklyn-based artist duo Mark Zlotsky and Karyn Lao. It combines their names through the voice of their two-year-old niece: Mook (Uncle Mark) and Taka (Auntie Karyn).

Mark is an architectural artist who infuses design with humor. Karyn is a fiber artist who believes that we are like pompoms — many pieces connected by a common thread. Together, they experiment and produce playful, unusual objects.

Mookntaka personifies the whimsical lens we investigate our surroundings with. It serves as a reminder to find joy in unexpected places and to embrace the silliness and curiosity of our inner child.
