Five More Minutes, features all new work by Baltimore artist, Katie Pumphrey. Five More Minutes explores the anxiety, excitement, panic, and monotony that comes from just 5 more minutes. Calm shifts to chaos and seconds fly by. Time drags on and you push further into the unknown. 5 more minutes. Stay here for just five more minutes. You have only 5 more minutes to finish your exam. You still have 5 more minutes. Please, just five more minutes. Only five more minutes. Five more minutes.

Five More Minutes is a joint exhibition project of Katie Humphries work between the Athenaeum Gallery in Alexandria and Susan Calloway Fine Arts, in Georgetown.
