Edgar Reyes Captures Life Shaped by Work, Migration, Family, Loss - BmoreArt

Edgar Reyes’ grandma knows that when he comes to visit her in Guadalajara, he’s going straight for that one dresser drawer that’s full of photos and messages from the past. He will pull out the drawer, place it on the kitchen table, on top of the shiny, floral tablecloth, and start with his questions.

“Who’s this? Who’s that? Why do you have this? Can I open this letter that somebody mailed to you in 1994?” Reyes recounts the dialogue.

Rebekah Kirkman writes about Edgar Reyes' work and his solo show, currently up at VisArts.

Art AND: Jerrell Gibbs - BmoreArt

Jerrell Gibbs is a true painter’s painter. When talking about painting, he gets that twinkle in his eye that you see when chefs talk about cooking their favorite family recipe or when musicians get to tell you about the inspiration behind a piece of music—his obsession with the topic sits so close to the surface, he is absolutely gleeful to get into it.

Sisters in the Struggle: Leslie King Hammond and Lowery Stokes Sims - BmoreArt

For almost fifty years, the scholarship and curatorial endeavors of Leslie King Hammond and Lowery Stokes Sims have challenged significant cultural institutions to reorient history as a broad landscape that situates white accomplishment as a component of, but not a singular contributor to, art history. Collectively and separately, these two women have built a legacy of excellence and diversity at museums and colleges including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where Sims was employed for 27 years, the Maryland Institute College of Art, where King Hammond was Graduate Dean and the founding director of the Center for Race and Culture, as well as the Studio Museum of Harlem, the Museum of Arts and Design, the National Gallery of Jamaica, the Reginald F. Lewis Museum, Queens College, the Cleveland Art Museum, and others.

Resistance: Photos by J.M. Giordano - BmoreArt

From 2016 to 2020, Joseph M. Giordano covered Trump protests in city streets and airports as well as counter-protests to Trump rallies and events. This collection of images reflects a variety of moments culled from dozens of different locations he experienced personally. Far from a comprehensive depiction of any one type of protest, this series focuses on signs and symbols, human figures, and crowds to create a multifaceted portrait of a movement and, sometimes, its counter-movement.

Bespoke: Baltimore’s Power Suits - BmoreArt

Fitting in is often a way of accessing power in the modern world—a uniform, the business suit, or even a hoodie in the tech industry, but not in Baltimore. Veteran fashion designers Earle Bannister, Ella Pritsker, Stephen Wise, and Natalie Karyl favor the one-of-a-kind garment, the bespoke, the eccentric, and the original. The lesson from these designers is that by dressing to please ourselves, we will naturally feel powerful.

Art AND: Precious Blake - BmoreArt

In addition to her creative work, Precious Blake has a full-time desk job. She is the Program Director for Visual Arts in Education for the Maryland State Arts Council, a job she loves fiercely and feels excited by every day. She works primarily with Teaching Artists, growing the roster of artists who teach through the granting program she helps oversee and building arts communities throughout the state in schools, senior homes, and nonprofit spaces. Working through COVID, she is proud of the work the Teaching Artists have continued to do, adapting to the challenges of online learning to continue to serve their respective communities throughout Maryland. It’s meant more work for her in some ways, but Blake is happy to do it. “I don’t mind being a broken record if it means the person who needs it gets the information, especially since the overall stance that I’ve always had is we want to support you as a whole person, as an entrepreneur, as an artist,” Blake says. Maryland’s artists are lucky to have her.

The internet was a bit relieving but also exhausting this week. It was all about the inauguration this week (and the subsequent memes), political hot takes (that I was too exhausted to read), and a few other things sprinkled about. Highlights: Inauguration highlights and memes, MLK Day, screen memories, plastic surgery on Instagram, the #metoo movement in Germany, and Kyrie Irving.

The BMA spent $2.57 million on art by 49 women in 2020. Guess how many are from Maryland? - BmoreArt

The artists of Baltimore and the state of Maryland have a pivotal story to tell the rest of the world, and the The Baltimore Museum of Art has an ethical and professional obligation to tell this story by collecting, preserving, and exhibiting the artists who live and work here. It’s not as if our artists haven’t earned this type of coveted and valuable recognition—it’s just that we have never had a robust art market to validate their success. Who better to begin this regional market elevation than our local museum which has the capital to invest and the clout to influence collectors?

Working Through These Challenging Times - BmoreArt

Pro tips on staying organized from Suzy Kopf.
This essay is a collection of some of the methods I have found effective over the years that you can copy and adjust to your own life and goals. Lately, I’ve been wondering: How can we make working from home work for us as creatives? How do we keep making measurable steps towards our career goals in a time when it’s hard to focus? How do we recenter our work to ensure we are reinforcing our values daily?

Bria Sterling-Wilson's Visual Flips and Remixes - BmoreArt

Collage can imply a flat surface, like the twelve paper pieces Bria Sterling-Wilson created for her solo show at Full Circle Gallery, Issue No. 1. It can also refer to various processes of creative alchemy that have been passed down through generations of Black families. Our ancestors made quilts from pieces of discarded materials, they composed songs without formal training that birthed entire genres or creative musical expression, and from discarded scraps of food they created sustenance.

Today: Teri Henderson writes about Bria Sterling-Wilson's solo show at Full Circle Fine Art Services. The show closes this weekend, and there will be a virtual artist talk on January 16.

8 Baltimore Independent Media to Watch for Artist News in 2021

Excited to read and be included on this media list! "BmoreArt is the only outlet on this list that may give the most variety of the kinds of art highlighting mediums from photography, paintings, music, and more. They’re diverse. But if an artist were to be considered reaching “mainstream” status, I’d say we’d find them being highlighted on BmoreArt because they don’t play around about who they feature. I’ve discovered some very dexterous creators and designers simply being subscribed to the BmoreArt newsletter. Out of the box originator of all sorts, exhibitions are promoted through their events calendar." Docs Castle

Language as Power: Andria Nacina Cole and A Revolutionary Summer - BmoreArt

Andria Nacina Cole’s ability to analyze power comes up in her work as a restorative justice practitioner, where she facilitates community conferences to address and resolve harm. Harm resolution is also a theme in her creative writing, she says, because “what’s important to me is that if I present a problem I also present a solution to it.”

Today: From BmoreArt Issue 10: Power, Jalynn Harris' profile of Andria Nacina Cole, the executive director of the summer-long literary program A Revolutionary Summer, with photos by Schaun Champion.
