A two-site exhibition presented in partnership with Heineman Myers Contemporary Art.


Heineman Myers – Friday, December 12, 6-9pm

Launched in spring 2007, Transformer’s FlatFile program features a unique variety of two-dimensional, unframed works on paper by a diverse and esteemed roster of artists working in mediums including photography, painting, drawing, and printmaking. All works are approximately 16″ x 20″ in size and smaller.

With works by emerging artists based regionally, nationally and internationally, the FlatFile was created to further promote artists in tandem with our ongoing exhibition program, and is open to artists that have exhibited with Transformer in the past and those who are new to Transformer.

Paper Trail will be presented at both Transformer’s project space & Heineman Myers Contemporary Art in Bethesda, MD, highlighting different selections from the current FlatFile, as well as new work by Victor Aguilar, Emily Andrews, April Behnke, Nancy Blum, Alan Brown, Jessica Cebra, Natalie Cheung, Melissa Dickenson, Ryan Hill, Paul Jeffreys, Andy Kozlowski, John Lancaster, Katherine Mann, Nikki Painter, Bondé Prang, Lauren Rice, Bonaia Rosado, Señor Tangcito, Champ Taylor, and Lisa Marie Thalhammer.

The majority of works are priced between $75 -$500, with 70% of all proceeds going directly to the artists.
