Artscape Gallery Network presented by M&T Bank
Connecting Baltimore's galleries.
The Artscape Gallery Network connects 21 Baltimore galleries to a wider audience through a promotional campaign sponsored by M&T Bank and provides art lovers with an extended opportunity to enjoy Baltimore’s talented artists before, during and after the festival weekend. The Artscape Gallery Network exhibitions highlight 2015 Janet & Walter Sondheim Artscape Prize applicants, along with artists working throughout the region.
The artists in this exhibit use glitter, gold leaf, silver Mylar and other reflective materials in their work. These works literally sparkle and yet they also condemn or implicate. Often this work is a mirror that pointedly reflects our consumer driven politics or the ephemerality of our existence. Looking simultaneously to the past and future, these artists gild lilies, explore the depths of space and perform magic.
Curator: René Treviño and Stewart Watson
What do artists do with broken pieces? Ceramic artists experience breakage every day. Mosaic artists use broken pieces to create. This exhibition asked artists of all mediums to address the question of how we as individuals and a community work to put things back together. Sometimes breakage is purposeful, like cracking an egg for breakfast. Sometimes it is unintentional like breaking someone’s heart. Some things were broken through a violent history and after many generations still need to be healed. The cement and grout that is used to adhere broken pieces of tile, mirror and mixed media make beautiful objects that hold meaning not just as a whole, but in each piece used to create the image or sculpture they become. The artists that work in this art form weave together personal stories and larger narratives of the histories that we share.

Sunburns and Sirens
The sun is a furnace. It marks the skin, cast a shadow and has been eating itself for 5 billion years. Meanwhile artificial light comes from sirens. Their call is both a warning and an invitation.

An exhibition of abstract and non-objective work that utilizes color and line to evoke emotion and memory.

The Gallery at CCBC, Essex
Society and the media have made major contributions to the discrimination toward the body image of women and how they should be viewed and identified. Women of the past and present have attempted to modify their body image to fit society's perception of beauty. During this process, women have been stripped of their individuality, dignity and personality. This exhibit showcases various groups of women who are affected by this confined beauty and create a new definition of what beauty really is.

A solo artist project featuring the work of Baltimore artist Emily Campbell.
In fall of 2014, artist Kristin McWharter embarked on the “Hear Charm City” project, a series of hand-drawn animations based on street interviews with Baltimore residents aiming to promote new platforms of communication for communities in our City. Project participants are asked, "If you could say anything to Baltimore City in 30 seconds or less, what would you say?"
Curator: Kristin McWharter
Whether trained or untrained, an artist uses line to convey meaning, create form, and stir emotion. This exhibition explores the artists' unique use of lines, whether rendered in pencil, marker, brush, or other tool. The gallery, in partnership with Abby Bennett, (MICA Community Arts '16), proposes to pair established Baltimore artists with emerging artists from East Baltimore. The work of both groups will be exhibited together at MAXgallery during the Artscape Gallery Network 2015. Through the MICA Community Arts program, Bennett has facilitated a series of workshops in which a group of East Baltimore artists have come together to learn the management aspects of art: things like documenting their work, creating a compelling portfolio, writing an artist statement, and curating a group exhibition. These artists, some of whom are not formally trained, are a talented group and have been creating work for years. Each established Baltimore artist will partner with two emerging artists. The artists will have the opportunity to critique each other’s work. The established artists will advise the emerging artists, drawing from their experience. The goal is to implement a series of activities relative to the exhibit, where all the artists will interact and learn from each other.

Waiting For Something To Happen
Dominique Zeltzman's current exaltation of the peripheral uses Baltimore City surveillance footage to create a video installation, sound score, and collection of miniature prints. The work contrasts the poor resolution, clarity, intimacy, suspense, and predictability of the images, while juxtaposing the drama of a potential crime with the monotony of the everyday.
What makes something trash, and what makes our personal psyche believe it's worth holding on to? Lost & Tell focuses around the sharing of found artifacts that once belonged to someone else, and quite possibly were once in an entirely different context. The life and death cycle of sentimentality plays an important role in the exhibition - what someone somewhere has deemed useless, someone else could hold very dear. The exhibit will showcase collages, mixed media pieces, and prints that all utilize the found object. A curated 'lost and found' in the form of a personal 'show and tell'.
Curator: Carlyn Thomas, Brooks Kossover, Beth Hoeckel

Unexpected Art & Décor
The objective of this show is to tie a cord through arts in a range from fine arts and photography to interior design and outlaw practice, illuminating a similarity of experience in and dependency on the urban landscape as the catalyst, subject, material, and/or canvas with which artists execute their work. It will reveal how the unknown and antiquated nooks and crannies of industrialization along with the oblique and sublime of everyday city life form not just the foundation of the artists’ intentions, but the framework for development, exchange, and application.
