Let the artists do the talking
Fifteen multidisciplinary artists examine the notion of indescribable human connection in EMP’s latest gallery show, Connect the Dots. Curated by dancer and choreographer, Erin Rehberg, the exhibition fuses dance, movement, visual art, video, and music into an electric limited-run event.

As always, EMP aims to erode stereotypes of the white-wall gallery setting and bring new work to audiences on a visceral level.

Gallery Four presents Stopgap, a solo exhibition of recent works by Baltimore artist Lisa Dillin. Through installation, sculpture, and participatory works, Stopgap explores the struggle between our animal instincts and the confines of living in a manufactured world where primitive desires are satiated; the natural world is brought inside, as water fountains become watering holes and sunshine flows from spray guns.

On Saturday, March 16th, 2013, Lisa will present a one-night only participatory work (you may want to bring a dark bathing suit in case supplies run out). Stopgap will be on exhibit through April 20th.

Gallery Four is a 10,000 sq. ft. facility featuring six live/work artist studios and a contemporary art exhibition space. Gallery Four is located in downtown Baltimore’s H&H building.

The City of Baltimore, the Bromo Tower Arts & Entertainment District and the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts in collaboration with the Baltimore City Department of Transportation are seeking an artist or artist team to assist with the replacement of old crosswalks within the new Bromo Tower Arts & Entertainment District with something distinctive and artist designed that will be compliant with traffic and safety regulations.  The project goal is to improve the pedestrian experience, give better definition to downtown’s Bromo Tower Arts & Entertainment District, and add an additional public art experience in the City’s third Arts & Entertainment District.

The New Greenmount West Community Association is now accepting proposals for paintings, stenciling, graffiti and street art on new plywood panels “the canvases” that will cover the windows and doors of the boarded up buildings on the 400 block of Lanvale Street.  This project is funded by the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation Spruce Up Grant that was recently awarded to the New Greenmount West Community Association.

Each artist will be asked to do art work on all 9 panels per row house.  The selected artist will receive an honorarium of two hundred dollars $200 per row house.  Artists can apply for multiple row houses.  Primer and the plywood panels will be provided.  Artist must prime panels, supply paint and additional supplies.  Artists can pick up plywood panels and work in their own space or can utilize the Greenmount West Community Center to work.  The plywood panels will be installed by others once painted by the artists.

Prospective artists are asked to submit a rendering of their design for the boards. The New Greenmount West Community Association respectfully requests that artists do not propose any artwork that includes profanity or racial slurs and no paste ups.  While not required, including links or examples of previous work and/or an artist statement with your submission is highly encouraged.

IMPRINT is an annual program, launched in 2012 as way to highlight one singular, specific contemporary artist that is excelling in their selected media. The piece selected will be reproduced in a limited edition artist signed print (edition of 100).

IMPRINT artists will benefit from the program by being prominently highlighted on the MAP website through the sale of an artist reproduction throughout the year. MAP will also sell the reproduction through their annual benefits, or offer them as sponsor incentives, which furthers the promotion of the artist name and work. The selected artist’s artwork will officially launch in conjunction with MAP’s Annual Spring Benefit, Out of Order.

Once an IMPRINT artist, always an IMPRINT artist: After your year as a MAP IMPRINT artist, any unsold reproductions in your edition will remain available for purchase and will be archived on the MAP website. Become part of the collection for life!
