17 Common Tax Questions Answered By An Expert

Share Your Why | Artist Talk
Tuesday, April 9 :: 8pm
@ Motor House

A common human experience is hearing the perfect song, closing the eyes and imagining an aesthetic, a scene or artwork that compliments the song perfectly. This practice is so universal that the social media platforms now encourage users to “add sound” to their content in efforts to connect to others. The irony is that by experiencing these artworks through devices, viewers are more disconnected from the art and the artist. February 29th, Share Your Why invites all to reconnect with humanity via an immersive music and arts experience.

“Share Your Why” is the first of two exhibits by curator Shardé Hoff as a part of Motor House’s Emerging Curator’s Program. The exhibit explores the theme of Passion, and how this invisible entity drives humanity throughout life. “Share Your Why” utilizes the artistic expression of nine talented local artists to reveal and give shape to said passion and begs us all to explore our own “Why”.

“Share Your Why” is Shardé’s third silent disco exhibit. The Silent Disco is a vibrant fusion of visual art and music, creating an immersive experience for attendees, fostering a deeper connection to the artists’ inspirations and expressions. The opening reception is free and open to the public, but to participate in the full silent disco experience (the way the curator intended) you can purchase tickets here

Sprung | Reception
Friday, April 12 :: 6pm
@ Waller Gallery

Enter a world where love and the vibrant energy of spring intertwine in a symphony of colors and emotions. “Sprung” is not just about the changing of seasons; it’s a celebration of new beginnings, blossoming feelings, and the exhilarating rush of romance. In this exhibition, we explore the profound connections between the awakening of nature and the stirring of hearts.

The exhibition “Sprung” acknowledges the amorous essence of springtime, where love blooms alongside the flowers and fills the air with fragrance. It’s a tribute to those who find themselves utterly infatuated, completely taken over by the irresistible pull of romantic interest. The exhibition also acknowledges the differences that these concepts reveal: The Spring is about growth, feeling sprung is often fleeting.

Join us for an immersive exploration of identity, spirituality, and social justice through the diverse lenses of five visionary artists. In this exhibition, we celebrate the dynamic creativity of Adewale Alli, Liz Miller, Raine Dawn Valentine, Savannah Imani Wade, and Khadija Jahmila, whose distinctive practices intersect to provoke introspection and inspire transformation. Each artist featured in “Sprung” was carefully selected for their exploration of themes or modalities related to both the seasons and love. Through their diverse practices, they offer unique perspectives on the intersection of nature’s renewal and the passion of the human heart.

SHEILA CRIDER: Relief | Artist Talk
Saturday, April 13 :: 3-5pm
@ New Door Creative

In her recent body of work entitled “Relief”, Sheila Crider explores a very personal era that blends the story of her recent migration from her foundational home of Washington, D.C.  with two earlier bodies of work—”Intersectional Painting,” executed between 2017 and 2021, and “Ghosts Stories,” (2021 and 2022).

Sheila relocated to Baltimore, Maryland in 2022. The upheaval of transition is impossible to ignore, and often creates a challenge to sustain the natural progressions of thought and order. Yet, the artist’s agility with the use of materials, and characteristic color sensibility continue as a vital force.  “Relief” is a testament to Crider’s ability to engineer both materially and figuratively a new vision.

From “Intersectional Painting”, Sheila re-introduces the concept of the “ideal human community”; a community that is collaborative, conscientious, and non-destructive. The series translates these values through the conservation and use of on-hand materials, fashioned by process that references the concept of community. “Ghosts Stories” interprets a discovery of process.  In essence, the works in this series are created by a derivative methodology that transfers the echo of an image/composition to another surface, creating (what is known in printmaking) a “ghost”.  The magic of what materializes ventures into the realm of spiritual encounter. Both series employ quilt batting as a substrate, creating an unlikely yet perfect foundation for Crider’s inventive use of materials that are sometimes metaphorically associated, but are re-plotted in ways that bend the impression of form.



Deep Listening: The Story of Pauline Oliveros
Sunday, April 14 :; 5:30-7:30pm
@ UMBC Music Box

The Department of Music presents a screening of the new film Deep Listening: The Story of Pauline Oliveros, a documentary project on the life and work of American icon Pauline Oliveros, directed by Daniel Weintraub.

Deep Listening: The Story of Pauline Oliveros tells the story of the iconic composer, performer, teacher, philosopher, technological innovator and humanitarian, Pauline Oliveros. She was one of the world’s original electronic musicians, the only female amongst notable post-war American composers, a master accordion player, a teacher and mentor to musicians, a gateway to music and sound for non-musicians and a technical innovator who helped develop everything from tools that allow musicians to play together while in different countries to software that enables those with severe disabilities to create beautiful music. On the vanguard of contemporary American music for six decades, her story illuminates the pathway to how we got where we are and where the future will take us in the worlds of music, the philosophy of sound, and the art of listening.

View the trailer to the film here.

Admission is free and tickets are not required.

The Music Box is easy to visit, with plenty of free parking. Please visit here for directions and parking information.

deadline for requesting waxes February 22
posted by Baltimore Jewelry Center

Baltimore Jewelry Center, Montgomery College, and Towson University invite students, alumni, emerging and established artists to apply for the second edition of the group exhibition, Transforming the Prototype. Participants are asked to reimagine a selection of traditional waxes by radically altering provided vintage wax patterns. Participants will receive a collection of waxes (rings, pendants, parts and pieces) which they will transform through additive or subtractive processes. The objective is to radically reimagine the prototype wax pattern into a bespoke object(s) or jewelry. Participants can integrate new components using wax and have the new jewelry/object cast; have the waxes cast as is and alter it with soldering, sawing, adding stones, etc. or a combination of these processes.

Participants are responsible for casting. They can do this through taking a casting course at one of the participating institutions or using an outside casting house, like Hoover & Strong (North Chesterfield, VA), Liberty Jewelry Manufacturing Company (Timonium, MD), International Manufacturing Company (Philadelphia, PA), Carrera Casting (New York, NY). Those with casting experience can cast at the BJC: Studio rental is $13/hour; for investing time it’s $26/hour. No charge for burnout.


To participate, interested artists should complete this form by February 22nd and pay a $10 fee (to cover the cost of the wax and shipping). Payment can be sent directly to the BJC through paypal ([email protected]). Participants will receive a bundle of wax models/pieces. Once participants receive their waxes, they proceed with their chosen processes. When the piece is finished, participants may submit it with an application fee of $25 to be considered for an exhibition that will be hosted by the Baltimore Jewelry Center from May 31-July 16, 2024. The deadline for the exhibition application is 11:59 pm on May 1st, 2024.
