New Work by Trace Miller opening October 12


Current is a great store-front space on Calvert Street in downtown Baltimore. It is located about a block from the Inner Harbor. You’ve probably driven past this space a hundred times and never noticed. Next time, park and stop in. It’s a colorful and graphically beautiful show.


Artist Rick Dulaney with Stories Curator Alex Ebstein.


The exhibit included not only paintings and drawings, but a video and sound piece by Emily Slaughter.


Artist Christine Tillman peruses the dyed silk ‘painting’ by Emily Nachison.




Above, another large dyed silk painting by Emily Nachison. This was the image on the invite, but I had no idea how huge it would be. Alex Ebstein received these silk panels in tightly wrapped bundles, so she had a LOT of fun getting to know her iron this past week. These insta-murals were glowing off the walls. Below it, Christine Tillman’s wooden log sculptures fill the front corner.

Artist Bonner Sale explains his work to some interested art patrons?

Below, a close-up of one of Bonner’s paintings. He is currently a graduate student at The American University.


All in all, a good show and a fun night. For more information about the show go to Current’s website.
