About the Juror: Tim Doud’s paintings and drawings address two seemingly distinct bodies of work, one figurative and one abstract. These bodies of work serve as a backdrop to broader discussions around constructed identities, branding and commodity culture. Recent exhibitions include Curator’s Office, Washington, DC, Randall Scott Projects, Baltimore, MD. He has received grants from The National Endowment for the Arts (Arts Midwest), The Pollock Krasner Art Foundation, DC Commission for the Arts and Humanities and participated in the Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program, New York, NY. Doud is currently an Associate Professor at American University and lives and work’s in Washington, DC. Doud and Zoë Charlton run the collaborative project space, ‘sindikit’ in Baltimore, MD. Doud also founded STABLE arts in Washington, DC with Linn Meyers and Caitlin Teal Price.
