Baltimore artists Natasha Tylea and Elena Johnston invited seven notable local artists to showcase their domestic treasures. This exhibition is about the objects that we, as artists, assign meaning to; the private shrines we create in our intimate spaces, studios, and bedrooms. It is important to celebrate not only the artist’s creations, but the stuff that they find inspiration in. These simple objects work together to explain the way these artists interpret themselves. The show will take the form of installations, complete with tokens and collections.

September 12th is the opening of “Stuff: Domestic Treasures” at the Metro Gallery. DJ Nugget and DJ Eskimodane play music. 7-10

Participating Artists:
Monique Crabb takes photographs and is a director of the Current Gallery.
