April ushers in celebrations of Autism Acceptance Month at Make Studio, where 75% of our artists identify as autistic persons and/ or people with autism. To mark this important month, we’re launching a new online exhibition for the month featuring a duo of pieces by participating artists (one piece created pre-COVID 19 and one made during the pandemic). We will also be sharing videos and other features from the artists throughout the month.

Mark your calendars! On May 8th I am hosting a pop up art show in my Federal Hill row house for 5 local artists and myself. We are all women, self-taught, and this is the first gallery/ art show for all but one of us. I am about to move to Boston and as a native, third-generation Baltimorean I had to find a way to celebrate and thank the artistic community that has supported me over the last few years, in spite of the pandemic. I am not charging any commission for the artists, although I am accepting tips ;)
NAMI Metro Baltimore and Benevolent Bubbles will be at Patterson Park on May 8th from 2:00pm - 4:30pm. Come enjoy the ambiance of bubble bikers, pick up some informational mental health pamphlets and giveaways, and hang out at the park (in a safe, socially distanced manner)!
Masks will be worn and we will practice social distancing.
Join us for a livestreamed monthly talk show co-presented by The Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) and the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA). In this episode, educators from both museums welcome American multimedia artist Delita Martin, who creates large-scale prints onto which she draws, sews, collages and paints. Martin claims space for her subjects, particularly black women, creating a powerful presence that simultaneously highlights the historical absence of black bodies in Western art.
In honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, Young Audiences will host East Meets West, a virtual performance by teaching artist and puppetry artist Hua Hua Zhang. Zhang will use a variety of engaging puppetry techniques to share the many differences and similarities of Eastern and Western cultures. The performance is tailored for students of all ages.
Join us at Gallery 1448 in the garden at the reception for "A Celebration of Spring". Participating artists are Claudia Bismark, Lauren Case, Greg Fletcher, Jennifer Hogan, and Leslie Schwing. The show runs from May 8 - June 13. Gallery hours are by appointment.
During the reception, a plaque will be installed commemorating William Leizman's kinetic sculpture located in the garden. Leizman (1926 - 2011) was an outsider artist and found object sculptor.
