“Rent Party”: African American Urban Dance Music from Ragtime to House
Thursday, April 18 :: 6-9pm
@ The Baltimore Museum of Art

Join us for a tribute to the Rent Party, a site of music and dance experience for the black urban migrant of the early 1900s. The Rent Party was an opportunity for confident, joyful self-expression and freedom from codes that regulated racial and sexual conduct, freedom from the ideals of uplift, sobriety, and propriety. It was a moment and a space for staking vernacular pleasure. It was an unapologetic place for Black creative expression.

This evening will begin with a presentation by Professor Shana Redmond of Columbia University on the philosophical and symbolic significance of the Rent Party followed by a music and dance performance that pays homage to the dynamic Rent Party dance music tradition. Peabody Jazz Studies faculty members Nasar Abadey (percussion) and Richard Johnson (piano) will play an improvisational jam session showcasing the evolution of Black musical history. Baltimore house music dancers will respond to the music live, artfully demonstrating their distinctive stylistic movement. A catered wine reception will immediately follow the program.

This free program commemorates the life of Donald V. Bentley and is presented by the JHU Billie Holiday Center for Liberation Arts in partnership with the Baltimore Museum of Art. Registration is encouraged.

This workshop will share ideas and perspectives for putting your own creativity first: How can writers best serve their own creative processes? Where do you go for inspiration? How important is community to our writing lives? And how can you create a life in this business of art?

This workshop will include a talk, a writing prompt with a group write-along. Jami will also explain the development of the worldwide literary movement #1000wordsofsummer. And bring your questions, too! This will be a welcoming and collaborative environment.

Lavett Ballard ‘Good Fences: Neighboring Narratives of the Soul’ | Artist Talk
Saturday, April 20 :: 4-6pm
@ Galerie Myrtis

Galerie Myrtis is pleased to announce Lavett Ballard’s forthcoming solo exhibition, Good Fences: Neighboring Narratives of the Soul. The opening reception will be held at Galerie Myrtis, 2224 North Charles Street, Baltimore, Maryland on Saturday, March 30th from 4:00 ‐ 6:00 pm. The event is free, and all are welcome. No appointment is necessary to attend.

Good Fences: Neighboring Narratives of the Soul explores the utilization of fences within my artistic journey. These structures symbolize both division and protection, especially concerning the social and cultural challenges faced by people of color. With a focus on wooden fences, their significance extends beyond mere physical barriers; they represent the passage of time through the intricate grains of the wood. Moreover, the act of reclaiming these fences serves as a powerful reminder that the old can always be rejuvenated and transformed anew.

Through my artistic endeavor, I aim to visually articulate and celebrate the intertwined past and present experiences of individuals within the African diaspora. By illuminating our shared narratives, I seek to foster a deeper connection to our ancestors and a broader global community.” – Lavett Ballard

The exhibit runs from March 30 – May 4, 2024. Gallery hours: Wednesday – Saturday from 2:00 – 6:00 pm by appointment. Hours are extended during special events. For additional information on this exhibition, please contact the gallery at (410) 235‐3711 or Ky Vassor, Gallery Manager, at [email protected]. For sales inquiries, please contact our Sales Manager, Noel Bedolla, at [email protected].

Saturday, April 20 :: 7pm
@ Current Space

Current Space is proud to present ‘Having a Body,’ an exhibition of works by Miranda Javid and Brendan Sullivan.

Please join us for the opening reception on April 20th from 7-10pm!

‘Having a Body’ contains works of animation, sculpture, and drawing. In each medium, the gestures are fragmentary, like excerpts from a journal or the field notes of a 19th century naturalist whose subject is the inconsistency of self, both the internal and external in equal consideration.

There is humor in the work, as well as contemplative spaces of blank expanses and existential strains. Above all else, ‘Having A Body’ is an invitation of quietude expressed through a human lens.

Exhibit Runs: April 20 – June 2, 2024
Opening Reception: April 20, 7-10pm
Gallery Hours: Saturdays 1-5pm, by appointment, & whenever we’re open (check out the show anytime you’re here)!
Location: Current Space, 421 North Howard Street, Baltimore, MD

This exhibition opens concurrently with 2024 Baker Artist Award Finalist Showcase, on view in the newly reopened Project Space. Be sure to explore both exhibitions while you’re here!

And come hungry – Kooper’s Chowhound Burger Wagon will be out back in the courtyard during the open reception. We’ll also be serving drinks outside in the Current Space Garden Bar.

Voices of Our Ancestors 2024
deadline April 17
posted by Maryland Federation of Art (MFA) & the Black Art Today Foundation

Our ancestors have passed down to us much more than our physical traits and personalities. Their stories of hardship and prosperity, failure and success, servitude and freedom, relocation and settlement, and other aspects of the human experience have helped to shape who we are today. The traditions and ancestral knowledge passed down to us influence our worldviews and the values that we will pass on to future generations. Maryland Federation of Art (MFA) and the Black Art Today Foundation ask artists to share works that give voice to the enduring values and experiences passed down to them through community and family. Any original 2D and 3D artwork in any media will be considered. Works selected by the juror will be exhibited in MFA’s Circle Gallery from June 26 – July 25, 2024.

Art in Abstraction | Call for Entry
deadline April 24
posted by Maryland Federation of Art

There are a plethora of fascinating things in our world that artists can recreate representationally in their visual voices. However, there are also several ways to express these compelling things through abstraction. By utilizing concepts we are familiar with such as form, color, composition, and so much more, artists can evoke a range of ideas and emotions as abstract art. MFA (Maryland Federation of Art) invites all artists to enter an exhibition that welcomes 2D and 3D abstract work for Maryland Hall’s Martino Gallery. This exhibition is open to artists residing in the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada, and Mexico. All eligible fine art entries in any media will be considered by the juror. Selected works will be displayed in this MFA-organized exhibition at Maryland Hall’s Martino Gallery in Annapolis, MD from July 12 – August 15.



Call to Artists: Collage as Street Art Residency – New Orleans 2024
deadline April 28
posted by Kolaj Magazine

A week-long, in-person residency that coincides with Kolaj Fest New Orleans (12-16 June 2024), during which artists will explore the city, learn about the history and materials of street art, and make artwork for public display that Kolaj Fest attendees and New Orleanians will be able to view.

Virtual Sessions: Monday, 20 May 2024, 4-6PM EST and Wednesday, 22 May 2024, 4-6PM EST

In Person: 5PM on Sunday, 9 June to Noon on Sunday, 16 June 2024

Early Deadline to Apply: 31 March 2024. The Final Deadline (if space is available) is 28 April 2024. Submissions will be reviewed on a rolling basis until space is filled. Artists are encouraged to apply well before the deadline.

In this week-long, project-driven collage residency, artists will delve into the history, methods, and major artists of the “street art” movement with a particular emphasis on collage. Participants will endeavor to put some of those methods into practice, taking their collage art out into the streets. Documenting the entire process will be integral to the project, as the resulting work will be published in a Kolaj Street Krewe zine to be announced at a later date.

This residency is an extension of the ongoing Kolaj Street Krewe project. Kolaj Street Krewe, an informal group of artists interested in this subject, explores the role of collage in street art as a practice and phenomenon. The group formed out of a chance meeting of FANCLUB13, Rosie Schinners, and Laurie O’Brien at Kolaj Fest New Orleans in 2018. Realizing the three of them shared an interest in collage street art, they decided to form a group and pitch a project at Kolaj Fest New Orleans in 2019. During COVID-19, the Krewe led a forum as part of Kolaj LIVE Online which resulted in a Call to Artists. In July 2021, fourteen artists participated in the virtual Collage as Street Art Residency. This history is documented in the book, Wallflowers: Collage as Street Art. Today, the project manifests as residencies, presentations, articles, and publications. An in-person residency took place alongside Kolaj Fest New Orleans 2023 and Kolaj Institute is offering this opportunity again during Kolaj Fest New Orleans 2024.

Leading the residency is Lance Rothstein, aka FANCLUB 13, who has been creating street art for over 20 years in over 25 US cities and 31 European cities. Rothstein writes, “I consider my work to be a bit like archaeology, collecting the discarded items from people’s everyday lives and rearranging them in new relationships. Then I usually send them back out to the streets in this new form, with a new purpose. I look forward to continuing my personal scavenger hunt, finding little trashy treasures and combining them into intricate relationships for people to come across on the streets.”

Artists will arrive in New Orleans on the Sunday before Kolaj Fest begins and will spend those days coming together to learn about the work and methods of several established artists and discuss new techniques and strategies, with topics such as Placement, Materials, Visibility, Message, and Legality. Each day, we will challenge participants to get their work out onto the streets, document the process, and share it with the group for discussion and critique. There will be sanctioned walls where artists will have permission to put up their work and during Kolaj Fest attendees will be encouraged to seek them out as they tour the city. Once Kolaj Fest starts, the artists in this residency will be let loose from the formal sessions and encouraged to participate in Kolaj Fest programming while also keeping an eye out for street art opportunities. As Kolaj Fest comes to an end, the residency will meet once more to debrief and digest the experience together.

NATURE EXPOSED | Call for Exhibition
deadline May 9
posted by LoosenArt

As theories of visual culture demonstrate, since ancient times the iconographic image has been a very important form of transmission and diffusion of human knowledge.
Starting from the late Victorian period, photography became a fundamental medium for scientific research, fully responding to the need to catalog and bear witness to inquiries into the natural world. Being photography considered a means that offers an objective vision of reality, when combined with data and texts, it is welcomed by the academic environment as an ideal means for the documentary transmission of scientific results.
In the fields of botany, anatomy, and in the study of behavior, micro/macroscopic observations, etc., contemporary technology offers more and more tools that help us understand the world, tools that broaden our perception and determine our awareness of it.
The call for the exhibition Nature Exposed intends to collect photographic, video and digital visual works that offer a glimpse into the natural world through the display of elements, flora, fauna, organic processes and behavioral dynamics.
