Aaron Dante
Aaron Dante from the No Pix After Dark Podcast joins Rob Lee to discuss podcasting, criticism, and how to handle the journey when it feels like you’re the only one walking the path. What does it take to create your own podcast and persevere through the tough times? Do you have content or a niche idea? How the hell do you find your voice in a saturated free radio, free-market space? The journey isn’t easy, but the good times never stop when you’re producing something you love. Rob and Aaron Dante discuss the early days of recording shows and tips on working the angles to stay relevant in a constantly changing podcast environment. Aaron Dante’s story is an inspirational reminder that good things only come with hard work, dedication, and passion. Later, Aaron Dante answers and asks some rapid-fire questions, including thoughts on local government, celebrities, and where to find the best crab cakes in Baltimore.

Agnes Gummere
Guest
Agnes Gummere
Agnes Gummere is an artist whose work ranges from figure painting, portraits, interior design, and illustration. Throughout her lifelong passion for making art, she has channeled influences from art history, centuries-old oil painting techniques, as well as digital mediums. Growing up in Philadelphia, and earning her Bachelors of Science in Interior Design from Drexel University Westphal College of Media Arts & Design, she has always found inspiration from the city’s rich history of art, design and architecture, as well as museums and galleries. Agnes’s creative practice stems from both her genuine enjoyment of painting, as well as a passion for portraying people, capturing their sense of character and emotion in layers of oil paint created over time. Her body of work, including formal portrait commissions, other depictions of the human form, and architectural illustrations, incorporates oil paint, pastel, and graphite, layered to achieve an ambient quality of light, texture, dimension, and realism. Her style is realistic, overlaid with drips, abrasions, and markings, as indications and appreciation of the painting process.

Ciarra K. Walters
Ciarra K. Walters (1992) is an interdisciplinary artist based in Baltimore, Maryland (formally based in Los Angeles). Her practice centers around self-portraiture, movement-based performance, public art, and art education. Inserting her body in public space, both natural and metropolitan, her performances, videos, and photography examine the relationship between one’s physical self and its history in its environments. She uses her newsletter, An Artletter, as a tool to empower, heal, and educate herself, and her community about contemporary/modern art, alongside her own work. Her Instagram operates as an additional platform to provide art education to her followers, as well as showcasing her reviews of the latest noteworthy exhibitions in Los Angeles, New York, Baltimore, D.C., and other cities. Walters is currently pursuing her Master's in the Photography + Media & Society program at The Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland, and is set to graduate in May of 2024.

Hope & Faith
D.C. born, Hyattsville raised twins Eleisha Faith McCorkle & Tonisha Hope McCorkle hold BFA’s from New York University in Studio Art, with minors in Social & Cultural Analysis and Psychology, respectively. Individually, one is skilled in drawing, printmaking, and digital art while the other is a painter and ceramicist. They combined artistic qualities in their first solo show, “OUR SKIN, OUR LOGO.” Since then, they have decided to come together, forming an interdisciplinary collaborative. Formerly enrolled in the Visual and Performing Arts program at the Jim Henson School of Arts, Media, and Communication in Hyattsville, Maryland, the pair have been curating, studying, and creating art since they were 13. At the age of 17, the twins lost their mother to the rare lung condition of Sarcoidosis. From then on, the two have used their art as a space of healing, creating immersive experiences that engage with loss, grief, identity, hope, and faith. Depicting their experiences, their work speaks to the candid, yet uncanny truth of black life, while simultaneously severing from a cyclical narrative deeply rooted in pain and disenfranchisement. Collard greens, hair, and faith are some relics represented in their work. Sourced from their own lives, the pair began to see their worlds collide as they grew into a new state of consciousness as one, traveling multiple dimensions in their work and conflating the ideas of reconstruction and resilience. Their work serves as a spiritual process towards completion–utilizing 2D, 3D, and 4D elements as puzzle pieces to form the bigger picture. Deconstructing materials in their practice, the dynamic duo reconstructs narratives through veracious and symbolic imagery to communicate stories of black life, food, rituals, healing, spirituality, and magic. Currently, the twins live and work in Baltimore, MD. They find inspiration in their everyday activities; spending time reconnecting with family, teaching the youth, raising plants, drinking water, cooking, meditating, and charging in the sun. When getting creative, the two take time to research, write, and reflect on their experiences in order to immerse themselves in their process. The pair has been honored with a 2022 residency with Creative Alliance in Baltimore and have their first solo show as a formal collective coming in November in their hometown of Hyattsville, MD.
