On View: November 3 - February 1, 2024 

Opening Reception: Saturday, December 9 | 12 to 2 pm

Location: Zeke’s Coffee | 4719 Harford Road

Zekes’ Coffee Shop and Maryland Art Place (MAP) are pleased to present Generation: Crit II, an exhibition featuring artworks from a local Maryland Art Crit Group, The Salonistas: Loose Threads. The Salonistas is a tapestry of friends with individual art practices whose unifying thread is to connect with one another and gain inspiration and insight into their work through feedback. This group includes accomplished artists who have won grants and awards and exhibited both nationally and internationally. Their career fields are equally diverse, including teaching, engineering, graphic design, and medicine. The Salonistas create space for deeper meaning to evolve, forming relationships of trust and camaraderie while seeking fresh angles and new perspectives, all while embracing the light, and dark, laughter, and pain of creating, as they come together to form a new gestalt.

Generation, is a series of exhibitions developed by MAP to promote the work of artist groups or collectives who come together to support, critique and inspire one another.  Join us for the opening reception held at Zeke’s Coffee located at 4719 Harford Road on Saturday, December 9 from 12 to 2 pm. 

Exhibiting Artists include: 

John Viles, Mary Skeen, Jim Opasik, Peggy Fox, Mary Opasik, Cathy Leaycraft, Andrea Huppert, Karen Klinedinst, Dan Shapiro, and Liz Swanson.

ABOUT ZEKE’s: In 205 Thomas Rhodes sold his first pound of coffee at the Baltimore Farmers Market. One year later he opened a retail space on Harford Road in Lauraville, and further expanded his operations to a fully functioning café just down the street at 4719 Harford Road in 2017.
