Art AND: Tracey Beale - BmoreArt

Tracey Beale plays with fire. The jewelry artist, vocalist, and program manager for the Baltimore Museum of Art is constantly thinking about metal—its malleability and changeability when heated are attractive to her, but so is its permanence. Beale understands the role that jewelry plays in families and hopes her work will be worn by one person and passed on to others over time as an heirloom. “What is jewelry without the body?” she asks. “It becomes something completely different. People wearing the work is just as important as the work itself.” When tied to memories of the wearer, jewelry becomes a reminder of those who came before us, and Beale is constantly aware of working in close conjunction with legacy.

Taharka Brothers: It’s a Teamwork Thing - BmoreArt

When I got here, I said, “Oh my goodness, all you guys want to be entrepreneurs, and this is what I’ve always wanted to do since I was younger.”
The founder of Taharka Brothers, Sean Smeeton, was my dad’s mentor when he was a teenager. My dad got mixed up in the Baltimore street life, but Sean, who was mentoring other kids in the Lexington Terrace neighborhood, helped them start lawn care and newspaper delivery businesses.

Art AND: Kris Fulton - BmoreArt

Hospitality is meant to embody the warmth and familiarity of a good friendship, to make us feel comfortable and known. That describes Kris Fulton to the letter: His natural warmth is built into the cafe he started with business partner Ann Travers Fortune. Fulton wants Sophomore to be a place for people to have experiences—some of them hopefully a little more profound than my remembrance of being sweaty and late—a place where friends can gather and conversations can be sparked. He sees the cafe as an important third space between work and home where people are free to enjoy themselves and the company of friends and strangers alike.

BmoreArt CC July 1 with Kumasi J. Barnett

Video from our July 1 C+C Zoom talk at Lowell Ryan Projects, Los Angeles, with Baltimore-based artist Kumasi J. Barnett, whose comic-book inspired paintings directly confront issues of police brutality, racial profiling, and systemic racism.

BmoreArt co-hosts Teri Henderson and Jeffrey Kent spoke to the gallery about their move from Chelsea to LA, discussed best practices for artists and collectors, and dug into Barnett's prolific comic-based work.

Barnett's works have been exhibited widely in the USA and abroad, including Lowell Ryan Projects, LA, where he is represented, and at the SPRING/BREAK Art Show, NY and City Lore, NY, with museum exhibitions including the Zeittz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa in Cape Town, and most recently at the Verge Center for the Arts in Sacramento, CA. Barnett presented a solo booth with Lowell Ryan Projects at The Armory Show in 2020, in the Focus selection curated by Jamillah James. Barnett's work has been featured in Artforum, Hyperallergic, Artnet News, and The Guardian, among others.

Diamon Fisher Curates Juneteenth Celebration as Both a Party and a Skillshare - BmoreArt

For Diamon Fisher, it is essential to cultivate environments that reclaim joy and leisure for Black folks, as well as spaces that foster knowledge and exploration. Her latest project promises to do just that. Her second annual Juneteenth celebration, taking place this upcoming Saturday at the Eubie Blake National Jazz Institute and Cultural Center, features music, poetry, art, food trucks, a marketplace, workshops, skillshares, and more.

Every Friday night on Baltimore’s radio station WTMD, Dan Deacon shares two hours of music that allows the listener to meditate, placing them into a healing trance. The program, Distorting Time, broadcasts mainly long-form music pieces, many of which have a unique experimental spirit.

Art AND: Pooneh Maghazehe - BmoreArt

Pooneh Maghazehe is driven by material, choosing as her subject a small memory or moment and drawing from it an abstract rendering of the human form, typically female, and the applied implications of that femininity. There is a simultaneous representation of things as they absolutely are—a Diet Coke logo or a girl or maybe a porthole—and the denial that any of these things are real at all. Scientists observe, but Maghazehe seems content to let the viewer draw their own conclusions from the artifacts she presents.

At the Maryland Film Festival, Local is Global - BmoreArt

Executive director Sandra L. Gibson considers the festival “both a springboard and a culminating point” for the independent film community in Baltimore, which has been hampered by the coronavirus pandemic’s effects on both cinemas and productions themselves. Though the festival remains mostly virtual this year, as it was last year, it feels more celebratory than consolatory, with a slate of genre-bending offerings that work as well in the digital world as they do on the big screen.

The Lungdeep Breath of Loving: Katherine Bradford's Mother Paintings at Canada - BmoreArt

Katherine Bradford’s Mother Paintings feel exhaled into being. Not easily or simply, but breathed out from a profoundly interior place. The paintings speak of care, worry, relief, anxiety—the lungdeep breath of loving. The figures populating this series live among slabs of heavy, humid air, hypersensitized in their responses to claustrophobic and caustic atmospheres.

How Baltimore Fed Lucille Clifton’s Poetry - BmoreArt

Lucille, as she invited her students at St. Mary’s College to call her, was not a provincial poet. She was a poet of myth and spirit, of generations; of a displaced people; of a nation and world in need of both strength and healing. Born and educated primarily in upstate New York and living out her 26-year widowhood between California, Maryland, and as a visiting teacher in places such as Memphis and Durham, Lucille was not bound by place. Through the imaginative, mystical works she produced—works she insisted she received—Lucille transcended location and met the reader, you could say, at the heart of humanity, where place is merely background.

Coming soon to the Howard County Arts Council galleries: Food for Thought (Youth Art Month exhibit) and No Boundaries Presented through an ongoing partnership between Howard County Public School System and the Arts Council, this year’s Youth Art Month exhibit features hundreds of works by HCPSS students in grades K-12, selected from public school art classes throughout the county. The title theme, Food for Thought: Breaking Bread, Building Community, provided inspiration for student artwork in a wide variety of media and styles. In partnership with Howard County Recreation and Parks’ Department of Therapeutic Recreation and Inclusion Services, this exhibit showcases work by youth and adult artists with developmental disabilities, created in the Exploring Art and Focus on Art programs offered by the Department of Therapeutic Recreation and Inclusion Services. In these programs, youth and adults with developmental disabilities have the opportunity to explore a variety of media, styles, and methods of creating art. The public is invited to a free reception on March 18 from 5-7pm. Exhibit runs March 6 - April 17, 2020. Gallery hours: Mon-Fri 10am-8pm, Sat 10am-4pm, Sun 12-4pm. Closed April 12.
