The BMA invited several Baltimore-based galleries and collectives to curate digital exhibitions at tomorrows.artbma.org. Galerie Myrtis, Creative Alliance, ICA Baltimore, and Current Space, among many others, present the work of artists including Ernest Shaw, Zoë Charlton, LaToya Hobbs, Antonio McAfee, and Graham Coreil-Allen. Drop in the virtual galleries, and if you’re able, be sure to support them. All transactions will be conducted by the individual galleries, who will keep all proceeds along with the artists they represent.
Enjoy a colorful fall weekend in Historic Ellicott City and discover artists at work (from a safe distance, of course) during Paint It! Ellicott City, our annual plein air paint-out. Better yet, grab your brushes, set up your own easel and join our juried artists by participating in our Open Paint-Out! Registration is free and entitles you to participate in our online Open Paint-Out exhibit.
Whether on the side of buildings or on the pavement you walk down every day, street art is everywhere – especially here in Baltimore! Street art is one of the most important art forms we have, but it seems to be the one we know the least about.
Ernest Shaw is one of the most prolific creators of street art and he has made some of the most recognizable murals around Baltimore. As your instructor, he will teach you the basics of street art, including:
Unspoken codes and guidelines
Necessary equipment needed to create street art
What is thread? Is it just a long, thin strand of cotton, nylon, or other fibers? What is the thread that holds us together? How is thread made? This exhibit explores the answers to these questions and much more. This Call for Artists show features 20+ different artists from around the area and their interpretations of what thread means to them using a variety of mediums. Available in an online catalog format!
In fall 2019, UMBC's Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery presented Experimentalist: The Art of Robert W. Fichter, the first retrospective of the artist’s career in over thirty years. We are pleased now offer this exhibition in an online version, available here.
