Press Release: Sold Separately @ Hotel Indigo

Rosa Leff:

"Sold Separately"

On View @ Hotel Indigo

On View: March 18, 2022 - May 20, 2022

Reception: May 5, 2022 | 5 to 7 pm

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

Maryland Art Place (http://www.mdartplace.org)  in partnership with Hotel Indigo Baltimore (http://www.ihg.com)  is pleased to present "Sold Separately, a paper-cut series by Baltimore-based artist, Rosa Leff.  The exhibition is on view at Hotel Indigo Baltimore, located at 24 West Franklin St. from March 18th to May 20th. A public reception will take place on May 5th from 5 to 7 pm.

Bio

Between painting alongside her grandmother and watching her father build reproduction antique furniture, Rosa Leff grew up seeing no distinction between fine art and craft.  What mattered was that things were made by hand and done well.  It is with that in mind that she creates her hand-cut paper pieces.  Each of Leff’s papercuts is cut by hand from a single sheet of paper using a knife.  Her cityscapes are based on photos she’s taken in her neighborhood and all over the world.  While Leff is best known for her ability to capture thin tangles of powerlines and intricate brickwork, she also enjoys experimenting with novel media such as paper plates and paper towels.  Leff delights in bringing a modern, urban perspective to a traditional folk medium.

Leff has served on the board of The Guild of American Papercutters (GAP). In addition to being a GAP member, she is a member of The Paper Artist Collective.  Leff has exhibited her work throughout the United States and in China.  She resides in Baltimore with her husband and chihuahuas, Chalupa, and Refrito.

Sold Separately

"As I look at this collection of work I can’t help but think about the remarkable amount of energy we all spend hustling.  Whether you love what you do or it’s just a job we all have something motivating us to keep going.  I find it highly unlikely that any 7-year-old has ever proudly proclaimed that one day they would have their very own store specializing in discount communion dresses, but I did once explain to a kindergartener that he actually could turn his passion for cheese into a career.*

It might be hard to think of going to work each day at a laundromat, a discount shoe store, or a used car dealership as living the dream.  But the fact is every business, even bodegas and $7 buffets, did start with a dream.   For city kids like me, it doesn’t get any better than a good tag on a storefront grate, a tavern with a dated sign, or a perfectly placed grease-soaked food stall at midnight.  I cut every last detail I can of these shops because I want you to slow down and appreciate all that went into them— Everything they represent.  After all, the dream is free but the hustle is sold separately."

We hope to see you Thursday, May 5  from 5 - 7 pm for the opening reception.

Validated parking is available at 15 West Franklin St. Garage

COVID GUIDELINES: We are following Baltimore City mandates. Masks are encouraged, but not required inside. Thank you for your cooperation.

Press Release: We Used To Live At Night

J.M. Giordano:

"We Used to Live at Night"

TONIGHT!!!

On View:  May 12, 2022 -  June 25, 2022

Reception: May 12, 2022 | 6 to 9 pm

Maryland Art Place (MAP) is pleased to exhibit the photography of Joseph M. Giordano, an award-winning photojournalist based in Baltimore city and co-host of the podcasts 10 Frames Per Second and Photo Flip. Underground sex scenes, drag scenes, club scenes, crime scenes, and more are all featured in MAP's upcoming show based on the book published by Culture Crush Editions in 2021. "We Used to Live at Night" covers over 25 years of Baltimore after dark and will open TONIGHT, Thursday, March 12, 2022, and run through Saturday, June 25th, 2022.

This is Giordano's first solo show at MAP which will feature upwards of two dozen black and white photographs. The film portion of the show features upwards of two dozen hand-printed photographs by the artist; however, the show also includes digital prints. Collectively all these Baltimore-based images were shot beginning in 1994, leading up until COVID ended the old way of living at night for good. “MAP’s expansive gallery, caring staff, and dedication to Maryland artists were integral in bringing my book to life. It’s the perfect space to display the rich tapestry of Baltimore at night” says Giordano who has been featured in ProPublica, The Guardian, The Telegraph, The Washington Post, The Baltimore City Paper, i-D Magazine, and Rolling-Stone, to name a few.

Giordano further explains that “Baltimore’s true heart and soul runs not just through one particular scene, but many. Walking the city at night over these past decades meant hearing music leaking through from deep inside an old warehouse filled with partiers who got a text message with an address at 2 a.m. or stumbling upon an open mic hip hop night at a rundown boxing gym, or a house party, or a secret rave behind closed doors”. "We Used to Live At Night" captures these intimate moments and more.

The Culture Crush was founded by French and Italian Vogue veteran, Debra Scherer whose work crosses boundaries between journalism, photography, filmmaking, and creative direction - all with an eye on aesthetics and the cultural narrative. As a creative executive producer, she develops and curates multi-dimensional, multi-sensory stories that call communities to the forefront.

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 the public by nurturing and promoting new ideas. MAP has served as a critical resource for contemporary art in the Mid-Atlantic since 1981. mdartplace.org. MAP is supported by the Maryland State Arts Council and The Citizens of Baltimore County.

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

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE FRIDAY, JUNE 3, 2022: Maryland Art Place in partnership with Hotel Indigo Baltimore and Alex Cooper Auctioneers  is pleased to present "Everythang’s Gonna Be All Right” featuring artwork by Howard Charles Doolittle. Howie Doolittle, born in Baltimore, MD, in 1940, died in Verdun, France, in 1966 during the Vietnam War. The exhibition is on view at Hotel Indigo Baltimore, located at 24 West Franklin St. from May 20th - August 18th. A public reception will take place on June 9th from 5 to 7 pm.

Alex Cooper Auctioneers is pleased to collaborate with the Maryland Art Place to present the work of Baltimore-born artist, Howie Doolittle. Baltimore-born artist, Howie Doolittle, is a graduate of North Texas State University, was on the brink of a successful career as a visual artist.  Prior to being drafted, his work was shown in multiple exhibitions and received an honorary citation from the Texas Fine Arts Association for commendable work. Doolittle, was an early activist of the Civil Rights Movement, profoundly moved by the inequalities he saw around him.  His work, though decades old, reflects an ongoing struggle and resonates just as strongly today.  If the viewer was unaware of the date of the piece, it is likely they would be viewed as contemporary.

Howie used his work as a voice for change. He was active in local and on-campus civil rights organizations and his art serves as a historical commentary of the world he was seeing.  A number of the pieces are poignant statements on social injustice.  “Everythang’s Gonna Be All Right” and “Million $ Patriot” invites the viewer to examine the social landscape more deeply.  The imagery is thought-provoking and compelling.

One wonders what Doolittle could have achieved had his life not tragically been cut short due to an acute asthma attack while stationed in Europe. His remaining works were entrusted to his sister who lives on the Eastern Shore and felt driven to give his work one final exhibition.  The works will be on view at the Hotel Indigo until the end of summer and then be available at auction on August 27th at bid.alexcooper.com.

We hope to see you Thursday, June 9  from 5 - 7 pm for the opening reception.

Validated parking is available at 15 West Franklin St. Garage.

MAP Announces TWO Calls For Entry; Deadlines In August!

Call For Entry:

CREATING CONNECTIONS

An Acquisition & Print Replication Project

Application Deadline:

Saturday, August 27, 2022

Application Form

Full Prospectus

Maryland Art Place (MAP), in partnership with the CyberWire, is pleased to announce an open ‘Call to Artists. As an extension of MAP’s annual IMPRINT Project, MAP is working with CyberWire to offer a unique opportunity to female and female-identifying visual artists of the greater Baltimore metropolitan area. Collectively, MAP and the CyberWire wish to acquire and possibly commission, time permitting, plus license the image of a work of art. The image of that artwork will be reproduced in a limited edition and presented to the guests of CyberWire’s 9th Annual Women in Cyber Security reception on October 20, 2022.

ABOUT “CREATING CONNECTIONS”: We live in a time where cyberspace has become inextricably linked to the lives of individuals and organizations of all kinds. Cyberspace is the medium of global commerce and communication, and it is one of the most important factors in the social, political, and technological changes we see occurring today. The CyberWire provides concise and relevant daily briefings on the critical news happening across the global cybersecurity domain. In an industry overloaded with information, we also help individuals and organizations rapidly find the news and information that's important to them.

The aim of CyberWire’s reception is to facilitate connections among women working in cybersecurity and would like to acquire a work of art that reflects the theme of “creating connections.” Inherent in the idea of connections is the idea of networks—social networks, computer networks, and support networks—which may be an important point of departure for acquired or commissioned work. This opportunity is open to female and female-identifying artists living and working in the greater Baltimore metropolitan area. The selected artist(s) will be joining a wonderful roster of artists as this program has developed over the last five years. They are Claire Girodie (2014), Anna and Caroline Zellhofer (2015’), Lindsey McCulloch (2016), Carmen Martini (2017), Shanthi Chandrasekar (2018), and Jackie Hoystead (2019).

No Pix After Dark LIVE Interview: 

Thursday, January 27, 2022 | 5:30 pm

Reception:

March 8, 2022 | 5 to 7pm

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

Maryland Art Place in partnership with Hotel Indigo Baltimore is pleased to present SK8R GRLS, a photo series by E. Brady Robinson celebrating the freedom and joy of roller skating. The exhibition is on view at Hotel Indigo Baltimore, located at 24 West Franklin St. from Jan 25th - March 18th. A public reception will take place on March 8th from 5 to 7 pm in celebration of International Women’s Day. 

In Spring of 2021, Robinson took up skating as a way to stay active and reconnect with friends outdoors during COVID-19. During these skate dates, she photographed friends and eventually, a wider network of Baltimore-based female-identifying skaters. This work combines her love of athleticism, fitness, and fashion photography.  These images, made at a moment where it felt like the world was reopening after over a year of closure and isolation during the pandemic, evoke a feeling of release and freedom.

Robinson completed her BFA in photography at MICA and MFA in photography at the Cranbrook Academy of Art.   Her background is in documentary photography and portraiture. The nine archival metal prints on display at the Hotel Indigo depict strong women amidst a backdrop of Baltimore monuments and sites. Locations such as Lake Montebello, Patterson Park, the Druid Hill Tennis Courts, and the Ravens parking lot, signal the public landscape of Baltimore for those that know it well, in contrast to photographs made in the artist’s Maryland Art Place studio which utilize strobe and gel lighting to simulate the vibes of the 80’s roller skating rinks reminiscent of Robinson’s childhood.

The skaters photographed include artists, musicians, and female entrepreneurs; women in the creative scene in Baltimore, including Amy Cavanaugh, Caitlin Gill, Jade Davis, Tina Thompson, Brittany Wight, Les Gray, Hayley Furman, Jessica Lauryn, Sophie Kluckhuhn, and Wildège François.

Maryland Art Place (MAP) is pleased to present: "ted[R]ad: Cultivating Collaborative Creative Community" a community-oriented installation-based exhibition that invites local partners and the public to participate in the realization and completion of the project. This site-responsive exhibition is part of the ongoing international art-making exchange project known as tet[R]ad. The primary tenet of this initiative has been to promote collaborative artmaking, community engagement, and activating audience participation. Originally developed by David R. Modler and Samuel H. Peck over a decade ago, this latest rendition will also include the work of Desmond Beach. Within this installation, the creators and collaborators aspire to cultivate a creative forum with members of Baltimore’s communities through a variety of art actions and social practices. The artists wish to foster restorative justice dialogues and build bridges between stakeholders with visual journal exchanges, collaborative drawings, and assemblages that encourage collaboration in idea exchange and cultural production. The ultimate goal is to engage with the local community to give voice and agency to participants that develop meaningful connections. 

Join MAP in realizing this exhibition by visiting our gallery from January 18 - March 12 and contributing to this project. On-site art-making initiatives include: journals, art-making stations, and larger-than-life figurative drawings (courtesy of Baltimore artist Desmond Beach) which utilize public engagement to aid in their completion. Our gallery hours are Tuesday - Saturday between the hours of 12 pm and 4 pm. Drop by and make your mark! A closing reception will be held Thursday, February 24 from 6 pm to 9 pm.

Interested in partnering with tet[R]ad? Contact: Caitlin@mdartplace.org to schedule a field trip or set up a site visit with your school or organization.
