ESCAPISM
Ongoing through June 12
@ The Framer’s Choice Gallery

Escapism is the tendency to seek distraction and relief from unpleasant realities, especially by seeking entertainment or engaging in fantasy.
These days, I find myself transported into my daydreams and imagination and falling more and more into my art and art creation. In a sense it almost feels deliberate the need to escape this reality that one finds oneself living in. Although it is hard to escape the harsh truths of our COVID-19 times; yet, I find my mind wandering into a world of imagination and dreams. Art for sure facilitates my escape into my own created world where self expression and gestural energy reign supreme. The zen like approach of creating art helps me escape into my own wonderland where it’s a breezy stroll by the sea while the birds sing up above. The confinement in a sense has aided my escapism and birthed much meaning to the word. The latest paintings become a metamorphosis of journeys I’d like to embark upon. The capture of good feelings and memories through composition, color and form all mélange together to help me escape the difficult aspects of our current times. It is through the process of creation and the act of painting that I find myself stepping away from the fear of the shadows of death that plague our existence. Through my artistic journey, it becomes clear to me that it is through art I have found the greatest escape!

Elder Pine is excited to announce that we will be collaborating with the students of Maryland Institute College of Art / Rinehart School of Sculpture to host a sculpture exhibit titled “To Sprout, To Share, To Sing”. Beginning May 1st, six talented artists will be exhibiting work throughout the grounds of the brewery. The show is a celebration of creativity that highlights the esthetics of each artist as well as the agricultural aspects of the brewery.

In the interest of making art accessible to all as well as taking small steps towards resuming interactions in the wake of the pandemic, these graduate students have joined with Elder Pine Brewing to present this mixture of culture and recreation. In response to the themes of cultivation and growth, the Rinehart cohort bring new as well as existing works to further enhance the visual landscape of this picturesque location nestled beside a pine forest.

Lisa Dillin: Sorry we missed you
Ongoing through August 28
@ Frederick Arts Council

The Frederick Arts Council announces a new exhibition featuring the work of Baltimore artist Lisa Dillin on view at the 5 E. 2nd Street Art Center.

The exhibition will run from May 7 to August 28, 2021.

The exhibition ‘Sorry we missed you’ features nine sculptures and a sound piece which focus on the complicated aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Since March of 2020 the physical and emotional space between each of us has widened like a deep chasm along an active fault line. Once buzzing city centers – many of which were already underutilized and in decline – have gone silent. City buildings and suburban retail centers that had long ago fallen into disrepair eerily await our return.

As we travel to our old familiar places we find that vestiges of what was abound. We have left traces of ourselves in every nook and cranny of our towns and cities. These human remnants are not dissimilar to messages in a bottle: they are clues to what came before, a voice waiting to be discovered.

Sorry we missed you is an attempt to make tangible the emotional quality of the sustained isolation and economic decline that characterizes this time. Sorry we missed you extends an open hand to the viewer and whispers “I understand how you feel, I’m feeling that way too. I am right alongside you, feeling the vacancy of this moment and waiting for the day when we are together again –  rebuilding.”

Dillin is an interdisciplinary Baltimore-based artist working primarily in sculpture and participatory art practices. Dillin earned her BFA in photography from Atlanta College of Art in 1998 and her MFA in sculpture from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2006. Her work has been selected for exhibition at various venues including the Baltimore Museum of Art and The Contemporary Museum in Baltimore, MD, Hamiltonian Gallery and Washington Project for the Arts, in Washington, D.C., Vox Populi and Practice Gallery in Philadelphia, PA, as well as Nurture Art and Transmitter in Brooklyn, NY. Art fairs include the Select Art Fair in NYC, Aqua Art Fair and Artist-Run Art Fair in Miami, FL. Honors include 2014 and 2017 MSAC Individual Artist awards in sculpture, second place prize winner of the Trawick Awards in 2014, and selection as a Sondheim Prize Finalist in 2012.

Kelly Walker, Block Party

Kelly Walker: Thriving in Baltimore
Ongoing through September
@ City Center Fayette/North Charles + 10 North Charles Street

“Thriving In Baltimore” is a series of paintings created in homage to Baltimore culture and to bring more exciting energy to this block of Charles Street. I’ve been attracted to this Miesvanderrohe building for the 25 plus years I’ve lived in Baltimore; by my optic the three storefronts at the ground level have always screamed ‘Gallery Space’, ‘Retail Space’ and would certainly be in any other “thriving city” – while the space is not yet in use, we decided to make a go of it as a “drive by gallery”. I am trusting our historic downtown will THRIVE once again.

 

 

The Invisible Invincible Asian American: Re-imagining Our History
Tuesday, May 18 • 7-8:30pm
presented by CityLit Project

CityLit Project introduces a NEW series called The Invisible Invincible Asian American: Telling Our Stories that brings exciting new and contemporary voices in AAPI literature front and center. The series includes two mixed-genre panels – one on craft and the other on publishing – featuring writers and editors who share their experiences and processes for writing within the larger AAPI literary landscape and navigating how to glean from stories and narratives that have been told, by moving them forward in new and exciting ways. Also each week throughout May, CityLit will feature Baltimore AAPI Writers’ Spotlight, a series of readings & interview videos posted to our social media & YouTube page, showcasing some of the great Asian American writers, poets, playwrights, and graphic artists that are brewing up goodness in Charm City.

This event is available to all, but we are building this series with Asians and Asian Americans as the central audience in mind. CityLit intends to move past conversations of representation, which tend to be oriented to a white lens, and instead foster a community space for avid AAPI writers and readers looking for dialogue about how narratives are written for peoples and cultures of Asian heritage.

______________

RE-IMAGINING OUR HISTORY
Tuesday, May 18 • 7-8pm
presented by CityLit Project

This panel on craft features AAPI writers whose work builds on the literary and real histories of Asian America, and/or our ancestral homelands to discuss how they see their work in conversation with these histories and how their work re-contextualizes the Asian American narrative in the present and posits its future. The questions can be filtered through multiple lenses, such as heritage & folklore, historical events, or writing traditions, narratives, styles, etc. – AAPI or otherwise. Anjali Enjeti, Lisa Ko, Paisley Rekdal, Lawrence-Minh Bui Davis, with Aditya Desai moderating. An audience Q  & A follows the discussion.

A Zoom link will be made available closer to the event.

Artist Talk: Leise Hook and Khánh H. Lê
Thursday, May 20 • 5:30pm
presented by The Walters Art Museum

Join multimedia artist Khánh H. Lê and cartoonist Leise Hook as they discuss their experiences as artists, the Walters collection, and their Asian-American identities expressed in their art practice. Khánh and Leise explore themes of belonging and Midwestern sensibilities through manipulating photography, illustration, and craft materials. This program seeks to highlight and uplift Asian and Asian-American stories as a part of Asian American Heritage Month.

To support Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities, we are sharing information about local organizations and individuals who are advancing justice and amplifying AAPI stories, perspectives, and arts and culture. Explore this list of resources on our website.

About the Artists

Leise Hook is an Asian American cartoonist and illustrator. She is a graduate of the MFA program at The Center for Cartoon Studies in Vermont and currently lives in New York City. She previously worked in art museums in New York City and Beijing. Her work has appeared in The Believer and The New Yorker magazines.

Khánh H. Lê (b. 1981, Long Dinh, Vietnam; lives and works in Washington, D.C.) creates mixed-media collages based on deteriorating photographs and collective memories of his personal and familial history as refugees living in Vietnamese internment camps. Lê merges narratives—both horrific realities and idyllic fantasies—filled with tension as he explores notions of home, country, and safety. Lê graduated with an MFA from Syracuse University in 2008. His work has been exhibited at the Hunterdon Art Museum, Corcoran Gallery of Art, Vox Populi, Honfleur Gallery, DC Arts Center, Hillyer Art Space, Transformer, CulturalDC, Pyramid Atlantic, Arlington Arts Center, VisArts, and Washington Project for the Arts. Lê continues to live and work in Washington, DC, where he actively explores and questions the notion of identities through the lenses of culture and memories.

The Coal Scuttle’s Legacy Gallery Exhibition
Friday, May 21 | Ongoing through June 19
@ Motor House Baltimore

Guest Curated by Ky Vassor

Baltimore artists have created their own dreamscapes through vibrant works placed on anything from the side of a building to an old rocking chair. This was especially evident in Sandtown – Winchester born Tom Miller’s “afro deco” depictions of Baltimore residents, the necessity of learning, and the tranquility found in creating a new landscape through art. Before his death, Miller published a children’s book, co authored by local legend Cab Calloway’s daughter, Camay Calloway Murphy, entitled “Can Coal Scuttle Fly?” which describes how Miller’s adventures in art began with painting on discarded objects found in his neighborhood. It was here he first brought fantasy to the physical world. Though Miller’s death was untimely, it is important to continue to highlight the legacies of Baltimore artists, emerging and established, that are continuing to create portals between fantasy and reality. In this exhibition, we are highlighting the works of Ernest Shaw, Megan Lewis, Qrcky, Victoria Walton, and Crwnleak by exploring where the fantasy worlds they depict for viewers and themselves intersect.

LATINO DESIGN HISTORIES | Modernity in Black and White: Art and Image, Race and Identity in Brazil, 1890–1945
Saturday, May 22 • 1-2pm
presented by SODA + AIGA Baltimore

Join the Society of Design Arts (SoDA) and AIGA Baltimore for this online talk by Rafael Cardoso. As one of the leading historians of modern art and design in Brazil, Cardoso has authored numerous books and essays and curated major museum exhibitions. In his new book Modernity in Black and White, he provides a groundbreaking account of modern art and modernism in Brazil.

AIGA Baltimore and SoDA member Raquel Castedo will host this event, part of the virtual series created to promote the rich and plural histories of Latin American production in design.

Thank you to AIGA Unidos, Stevenson University, the Vancouver Latin American Cultural Centre, and Blucher for partnering with us on this event.

HOW TO ATTEND THE EVENT

3) Registered attendees will receive a link and password when they complete their registration. The link and password will also be sent 24 hours and 1 hour before the event. Make sure to check your spam folder for the email.

PRESENTED BY
Rafael Cardoso is a member of the postgraduate faculty in art history at Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro (Instituto de Artes) and a research fellow at Freie Universität Berlin (Lateinamerika-Institut).

The Brazilian modernism that took shape over the first two decades of the twentieth century is fascinating because it blossomed directly out of commercial practices and urban culture, rather than as critical commentary by elite observers. This is consistent with the circumstances of a country in which literature and fine art were traditionally restricted to a privileged few. Combining extensive research with close readings of a range of visual cultural production, his research brings to light a vast archive of art and images, all but unknown outside Brazil.
