Edgar Reyes: They Tried to Bury Us, They Didn’t Know We Were Seeds
Tuesday, November 30 • 7pm
presented by CULTIVATE

CULTIVATE is pleased to present a guided discussion led by Baltimore-based Mexican American artist Edgar Reyes on the power and knowledge that can be shared through plants. Reyes shares how indigenous plants, food, and language have influenced his practice. He analyzes the distinct ways in which myths and colonial perspectives have created hybrid traditions and beliefs.

Reyes’ work has been centered around reflecting on his family’s history and the distinct places they have called home, documenting their stories and collecting photos from family archives and Mexican street markets. His interest lies in the mementos people cherish and the layers of loss endured from migration and the passing of loved ones. “To me,” says Reyes, “our most precious memories play a vital role in helping us cope with loss and displacement. Many of the pieces that I have created are filled with visual layers that represent the hope and pain we have, and continue to endure, as many of us seek refuge. The imagery alludes to my ancestral past and my family’s spiritual connection with plants.”

About: Edgar Reyes is a multimedia artist based in the Baltimore and Washington D.C. area. Reyes earned his M.F.A. from Maryland Institute College of Art and has taught at non-profit organizations, schools, and museums. Many of his projects are autobiographical and a reflection of his personal journey as an undocumented youth in the United States. Reyes is driven by the desire to raise an awareness and question the displacement of his community.

He explores how the blending of Indigenous and European traditions is an ongoing process of conquest and resistance. His art practice highlights the beauty of being Mexican American and questions his national and cultural traditions. He challenges social norms to express what it means for him to be labeled Latino. His art making is centered around building compassion and understanding regarding the complex history of forced and voluntary resettlement throughout the Americas. http://reyesedgar.com

Essence of Black Woman | Exhibition Opening Night
Friday, December 3 • 7pm
@ Motor House

Now, more than ever, public attention and support for Black communities, identity, and culture has surged. There particularly has been a newfound focus on Black artists who have been both historically ignored in the traditional art marketplace and relied upon to artistically heal our societal wounds and create representations of culture, change, and optimism, as seen following the murder of George Floyd. BlkArthouse–a social enterprise dedicated to connecting people to Black culture through art– aims to ensure that Black artists are getting their fair share in the art market.

The art world is ripe for a Black-focused paradigm shift. Art by Black artists only comprises 1.2% of art collections in major art institutions. As a result, Black artists have had less visibility and fewer opportunities to engage with buyers. Enter BlkArthouse, where Black artists can become a part of an international community and have opportunities to present their artwork to broader audiences through BlkArthouse’s series of online collections and pop-up art exhibitions around the country, while retaining double the amount of profits they would receive by working with a traditional art gallery or museum.

“Baltimore, as a national hub for Black culture and art, is the perfect place to host our next exhibition” BlkArthouse founder, Tatiana Rice, says. The exhibition “Essence of a Black Woman” will take place from December 3 – 27 at Motor House in Baltimore, and will feature 10 Black artists from around the world, including a number of local artists. The opening night reception begins at 7:00pm EST at Motor House with hors d’oeuvres by local Black food vendors, cash bar, and Black spoken-word artists. Baltimore residents are invited to attend the opening night event on December 3 at www.blkarthouse.com/events.

This event follows BlkArthouse’s first in-person exhibition, “What is Black Art?” that took place in Washington, DC this past Summer. That exhibition headlined a collection from 19 Black artists, from Nigeria, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States, and a sold-out opening night event with over 250 attendees. You can read more about BlkArthouse at www.blkarthouse.com or on social media @blkarthouse.

Friday, December 3 • 4-7pm | Ongoing through January 2
@ Hamilton Gallery

This group show brings together a selection of pieces by each artist and spans across mediums of painting, print media, and more, exploring various themes that are the focus of their practices.

 

 

BJC Holiday Sale 2021 + Artifactual Remakes | Opening Reception
Friday, December 3 • 5-8pm
@ Baltimore Jewelry Center

The Baltimore Jewelry Center will host Artifactual Remakes, an exhibition that playfully addresses the history of jewelry; its cultural significance, construction techniques, materiality, and longevity as a form of personal expression. Referencing notable pieces of jewelry from the collection of the Walters Art Museum, Artifactual Remakes will be on view in the BJC’s gallery in Baltimore’s Station North Arts & Entertainment District (10 E. North Ave.) from December 3rd until February 5th with an opening reception on Friday, December 3rd from 5 to 8pm. The exhibition and opening are free and open to the public.

Every fall the Baltimore Jewelry Center hosts an annual symposium, featuring free workshops, demonstrations, and a speaker series, all related to a designated theme. This year’s focus was the history of jewelry, which also became the catalyst for the annual community challenge, a charge proposed to the BJC maker community to create new work that speaks to the decided theme; selected works are then featured in an annual community exhibition. For Artifactual Remakes, participating artists drew inspiration from a pre-selected collection of historical jewelry objects, chosen by curators from the Walters Art Museum. The historical items selected come from various cultures and time periods; exhibiting spectacular craftsmanship and skill.

In addition to Artifactual Remakes the BJC will host a holiday sale, taking place in person Friday, December 3rd through Sunday, December 5th. The sale will continue online through December 17th. The BJC hosts a limited number of sales each year that provide opportunities for jewelry artists working in the studio to sell their work and patrons a chance to buy handmade jewelry while directly engaging with makers. Artists in the sale consist of instructors who teach at the BJC, working artists who utilize the BJC’s studio, students of the BJC’s educational programs, and other local jewelry artists. This is a juried sale and each artist will present a unique line of work. Included jewelry pieces are made of sterling silver, steel, brass, copper, gemstones, and alternative materials. The sale will take place at the BJC studio from 5-8pm on Friday, December 3rd and from 12-6pm on both Saturday, December 4th and Sunday, December 5th. Entry to the sale is free and open to the public. Covid safety protocols will be followed.

“The Baltimore Jewelry Center features one of the only art jewelry galleries in the Mid-Atlantic. Our exhibition and sales program exposes the larger public to contemporary and traditional metal arts, and acts as a platform to promote and sell the work of local artists and national artists in the metalsmithing field,” said Shane Prada, Director.

ABOUT THE BALTIMORE JEWELRY CENTER:

Founded in June 2014, the Baltimore Jewelry Center is the successor organization to the MICA Jewelry Center. Located in Baltimore’s Station North Arts & Entertainment District, the 501c3 educational nonprofit is dedicated to building a vibrant creative community for the study and practice of metalworking for new and established artists, offering classes, workshops, and studio space access. The Baltimore Jewelry Center’s offerings are open to anyone regardless of educational or artistic background, and the program provides affordable educational opportunities by subsidizing class, workshop, and studio rental costs. In addition to its education program, the Baltimore Jewelry Center helps metal and jewelry artists grow sustainable business practices by offering professional development, sales opportunities, and a promotional platform.

Katie PUMPHREY: Night Swim | Artist Talk
Saturday, December 4 • 1-3pm
@ Project 1628

Night Swim is a solo exhibition that features new work by Katie Pumphrey, including large scale paintings, and for the first time ever, sculptures. This new body of work dives head first into her experiences as an open water swimmer. With playful imagery, vibrating color, and a bit of silliness, this body of work explores the tension and connection between the constant chaos around us, the roller coaster we ride between our ears, and the scramble to find calm at the surface of it all.

Katie Pumphrey is an American contemporary artist and ultra-marathon open water swimmer. Pumphrey has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Maryland Institute College of Art. Major swims include the English Channel (2015), around the island of Manhattan (2017), and the Catalina Channel (2018). Those three swims make up the Triple Crown of open water swimming, making Katie the 194th person (73rd woman) in the world to achieve that goal.

Please join us on Sunday November 7 from 2 PM – 5 PM for the opening reception and on Saturday December 4th from 1 PM – 3 PM for “Swim Stories” artist’s talk

Masks and vaccination required. Sign-in to attest vaccination status. Unvaccinated children under age 12 are welcome with masks.

 

 

Intervals | Closing Reception + Artist Talk
Saturday, December 4 • 6-9pm
@ Current Space

Current Space is proud to present ‘Intervals,’ a solo exhibition of works by Lou Joseph. Please join us for the closing reception and artist talk.

Closing Reception & Artist Talk: December 4th, 6-9pm. Talk at 7pm.

Exhibition Duration: October 15th – December 4th
Gallery Hours: Fridays & Saturdays, 1-5pm

‘Intervals’ is a selection of work by Lou Joseph produced since the birth of his son Gabe in 2017. Using recycled vinyl cut to 26 x 36 inch pieces, the artist worked on batches of paintings in his home studio, the process of working on the paintings in layers fit into the times in between child care, family time, employment and housework. This at times erratic process was only exacerbated by the ongoing pandemic and working from home. While not a literal, day-by-day documentation of this time, the accumulated works (this exhibition includes 35 of 150 paintings) relay a sense of the fun, lack of sleep, mental health struggles, worry over the pandemic/the united states/climate change/etc and personal growth during this time.

Lou Joseph (b.1975) is a Baltimore artist working in painting, printmaking and installation. He is a project manager for the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts and also director of the Institute of Contemporary Art, Baltimore. He lives in the Radnor-Winston neighborhood with his wife Miriam, son Gabe and cats Dexter and Sadie.

This program is made possible in part by supporting members like you; the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization; the generous contributions of The Maryland State Arts Counsel; and The Creative Baltimore Fund, which is a grant program funded by the Mayor’s Office and the City of Baltimore.

 

 

GREG FLETCHER: Destined to Create Art | Opening Reception
Sunday, December 5 • 11am-4pm
@ Ink Spot Press

Acclaimed painter and printmaker Greg Fletcher presents a solo exhibition of monoprints and drypoints created during the pandemic at Ink Spot Press.  A native of Baltimore, Fletcher has been transforming the stories, memories, and figures of this city into his evocative artwork for decades.“For a well-conceived, creative work of art in Baltimore, art patrons and collectors would do well to explore the art of Greg Fletcher. Born and raised in East Baltimore, Fletcher captures the essence of the Baltimore community in which he still lives. His position in the community enables him to offer an expressionistic look into the Baltimore landscape, people, and events. Historically, the city of Baltimore has gone from communities with vibrant streets lined with beautiful row houses, to a city in decay, to its current revitalization. This backdrop provides Fletcher with his artistic inspiration. He does not see the ugliness of those communities. Instead, he sees the beauty of their past as he remembers them. By portraying buildings leaning, somewhat like those in William Johnson’s works, Fletcher brings new life into his paintings. In addition to painting structures and cityscapes, Fletcher also portrays figures, in both charcoal and sculpture.

Telling the story of his community through art has been a lifelong journey for Fletcher. One could say he is a variation on a griot (a storyteller who maintains an oral history). His longevity in Baltimore has afforded him the opportunity to have seen, learned, and committed to memory the city and its neighborhoods—and offers him the chance to paint from a unique perspective. His artworks are colorful renditions of the structures and people that he remembers and sees. “

Bernheim’s Artist in Residence Program | Call for Applications
deadline December 15
sponsored by Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest

For over four decades, the Artist in Residence program has attracted artists from around the world who seek to use Bernheim as their inspiration. Established in 1980, this internationally renowned program annually awards artists the opportunity to live and create site specific work inspired by their total immersion experience in the natural environment. The work created through this program allows our visitors to experience nature in new and exciting ways while enhancing awareness of Bernheim’s mission of connecting people to nature. In 2021, we expanded the program to include an Environmental Artist in Residence that encourages artists to examine environmental issues and severity of the climate crisis to promote dialogue and positive change for the natural environment and world at large.

In exchange for comfortable rustic housing, access to studio space, financial and staff support for the development of new work, artists will create a site-inspired artwork, temporary installation or project as a donation to the Bernheim Foundation. Recipients are also asked to engage the public with their work and/or process while in residence.

Artists are encouraged to explore ideas that reinforce Bernheim’s mission of connecting people with nature and to use their residency to take risks, experiment, and explore new avenues in their own work. Any questions can be addressed with Arts in Nature Curator Jenny Zeller, jzeller@bernheim.org.

We encourage visual artists of all mediums, with the broadest range of diverse perspectives and experiences, to submit work for consideration.

 

 

Anna Rabinowitz Award
deadline December 31
sponsored by Poetry Society of America

The Anna Rabinowitz Prize is awarded to poets and their collaborators for venturesome, interdisciplinary work made in the previous year and combining poetry and any other art or discipline.

Candidates are required to provide material documenting their projects. These will be key to the judging process. Panels, discussions, and programs focused on dialogue between disciplines rather than the creation of a new work are not eligible.

The finished work should have been produced or published in 2021 but can involve or be based in part on work from any era. And all are welcome to apply singly if the work involving more than one discipline has been accomplished alone.

Honorarium: $1,000 to be divided equally between or among the principals if not awarded to a single artist.

The prize is established by the children of Anna Rabinowitz to honor her boundless curiosity, creativity, and artistic accomplishments.
