Baltimore is a truly cosmopolitan city in the heart of Maryland, and the arts have seen a vigorous resurgence over the last decade with numerous multi-functional, artist-run spaces popping up around the city.
The gallery works to expose the wider community to thought-provoking contemporary art by artists whose works will stand the test of time, gaining historical significance for their exploration of critical contemporary issues.
Owned by Sheridan Costa, this vibrant, eclectic venue boasts an exquisite collection of works by new and established artists and craftsmen, both from the local area and further afield. Covering a wide range of mediums and techniques from print-based works and photography to stitched wood, the gallery’s main focus is promoting local talents.
Focused solely on ceramic arts, the non-profit center enables the public to engage directly with the medium of clay and artists working within the field of ceramics; it delivers a number of solo and group exhibitions throughout the year featuring artists such as Leigh Taylor Mickelson, Shalya Marsh and Brett Freund.
Founded by artist and curator Rod Malin, Guest Spot is located at The Reinstitute, the School for Innovation and Self-Accreditation for the Arts and Sciences. Independently run by a team of artists, their one-of-a-kind curatorial program offers exhibitions focused on the theme of impermanence, the utilization of space and the concept of the ‘American Home’.
Established in 1981 the organisation has endeavored to support local artists and encourage their professional development whilst providing a packed schedule of exhibitions, events and educational workshops inspiring the community and encouraging engagement with the arts.
At once an artist-run gallery, studio and hub for cultural production, Current Space is a pioneering venture that encourages the generation of dialogue between artists, designers, curators, activists and thinkers. The gallery works on a variety of contemporary solo and group exhibition projects throughout the year featuring an array of mediums including photography, video and game design.
