Between Two Fires

In the Helen C. Frederick Gallery
July 8, 2023 – August 13, 2023

This exhibition features large-scale cyanotypes, an immersive installation, and exquisite papermaking and printmaking. Drummond is the go-to expert in the paper “blow out” technique, which uses stencils and pulp to create patterning.

Materiality is central to Drummond’s work. She examines clothing as material culture, extracting tacit narratives from garments and the bodies that wear them. In Between Two Fires, her layered prints explore delicate fabrics and their ability to ensnare the viewer and the wearer.

“Cloth receives us, holding not just our histories but also those of people who wore the garments before us. Becoming a second skin it denotes on its surface the experiences and encounters we have with the exterior world. In this way clothing can also store cultural and historical narratives of groups of people.” – Sue Carrie Drummond

Founded in 1981, Pyramid Atlantic is a nonprofit contemporary art center fostering the creative disciplines of papermaking, printmaking, and book arts within a collaborative community. We equip, educate, and exhibit in our historic Hyattsville home. Our vision is to create an artistic hub in Hyattsville that inspires and enables local, national, and international artists to create and innovate in our core disciplines; elevates the local arts and small business scene; and enhances the quality of life for artists and neighbors. We value artistic excellence, infrastructure for artists, hands-on experiences, and collaboration.
This exhibition is made possible in part through support from the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, Department of Parks and Recreation, Prince George’s County and Maryland Department of Commerce.
