Warp & Weft // Howard County Community College


On View: August 28 – November 19, 2023

Reception: Thursday, October 26 | 5 to 7 pm

Location: Richard B. Talkin Family Art Gallery | Howard County Community College 

Presented by Richard B. Talkin Family Art Gallery, and curated by Maryland Art Place (MAP), “Warp & Weft” highlights female artists working in fiber. 

Women and their relationship to fiber have long been intertwined throughout history. Athena, goddess of war strategy, wisdom, justice and crafts was especially known for weaving. It is told that she made the first human woman’s dress for Pandora, teaching Pandora how to weave herself. This legacy was mirrored in the matriarchal tendencies of women, passing down their generational knowledge and know-how to their daughters. This was often seen with quilting, as example, which largely began out of necessity, eventually turning to more of an art form as techniques and needlework advanced.

The female role has increased tenfold over the last five decades to encompass domestic, emotional and financial responsibilities.  Perhaps women today have become the “Warp,” the generally stronger thread in the weave: the foundation for the “Weft” that flows between.

Warp & Weft includes artworks by Jennifer McBrien, Karin Birch, Pamela Thompson, Bonnie Crawford, Sasha Baskin, Katie O’Keefe and Christine Wolfe Strong. Taking a contemporary approach to age old techniques, the exhibition will include everything from felting, embroidery, stitching and weaving

The Richard B. Talkin Family Art Gallery features work from artists in the college community, giving our students, alumni, and community artists the experience of organizing and presenting local artwork.

Maryland Art Place (MAP) inspires, supports and encourages artistic expression through innovative programming, exhibitions, and educational opportunities while recognizing the powerful impact art can have on our community. MAP creates a dynamic environment for artists of our time to engage with the public by nurturing and promoting new ideas.

On View:  August 31 - November 30, , 2023

Reception: Thursday, October 5, 2023| 5 to 7 pm

Hotel Indigo | 24 West Franklin Street | Free & Open to the Public

Maryland Art Place in partnership with Hotel Indigo Baltimore is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Maryland-based artist, Grace Doyle. The exhibition is on view at Hotel Indigo Baltimore, located at 24 West Franklin St. from August 31 - November 30. A public reception will take place Thursday, October 5 from 5 to 7  pm in the Hotels Poets Modern Cocktails and Eats.

About the Artist: 

Through paint, Grace Doyle explores her friends and family in quiet, introspective moments. Her compositions reveal a vulnerable side of the human experience that is only unveiled when individuals are not performing or fulfilling societal roles. She is interested in the inner person as well as what they project outward. Patterns are used as camouflage and employed to set a mood. Strong light, both natural and artificial, becomes a subject itself, competing with the figures. Grace captivates the viewer using richly painted surfaces with mesmerizing patterns and lush vegetation, encouraging self-reflection and curiosity.


Grace Doyle (b. 1988) lives and works in Baltimore, MD. She received an MFA from Towson University in 2023, an MBA from the University of Baltimore in 2019, and a BFA from MICA in 2009.
