After easing Make Studio’s pivotal organizational anniversary last year, we’re beginning 2020 with a bang – our 10th birthday is really here! We are pleased to present a month-long celebration of our artists centered on our in-house exhibition TEN, which opens February 22nd, 2020. Make Studio artists are also exhibiting in three shows in Station North, Mount Vernon, and Catonsville through February.
TEN will feature a selection of works from our almost 40 program artists, selected to reflect the diversity of their visions and their accumulated artistic achievements from their years working in the studio. Accompanying the opening of TEN will be the artists’ first-ever show of wearable art, appropriately titled “Making it Work”, preceded by an interactive screening of “Ten Talks”, an informative, uplifting (and, at times, hilarious) video presentation prepared by ten of the artists. And as we like to say, our “birthday show”, as always, will have something for everyone to enjoy and to purchase; after a decade in action, Make Studio is particularly expert in curating a selection of the most unique, very affordably priced art to fit any home or palate in Baltimore and beyond!
TEN opens to the public on Saturday, February 22nd in our Showroom Gallery in the Schwing Art Center, 3326 Keswick Rd., Baltimore. The free reception/birthday party, from 2:00 pm to 7:00 pm, with “Making it Work” hitting the runway at 5:00 pm. The event is appropriate for all ages, and all are welcome! TENis on view through March 20th, and is open to visitors during Make Studio’s usual weekday hours or by appointment.
Concurrently, art enthusiasts can check out work by our artists in Cocreate at Hotel Indigo in Mount Vernon, on view through February 13th, with a champagne reception on February 6th from 5:30-7:30 pm, and in Ten Going on Timeless, open through February 29th at Impact Hub, just down the block from our original home at Load of Fun (now Motor House) in Station North. Lastly, our friends at Atwater’s in Catonsville are coincidentally celebrating their own 10th birthday in 2020, and our artists will be showing their work there from January 24 – February 29!
