SATURDAY, March 28
An Everything Installation
Maryland Institute College of Art
March 28 to April 25, 2009
Artist Denise Tassin works with current students enrolled in the Maryland Institute College of Art’s Post-Baccalaureate program to create a “project room” where all is considered, and nothing rejected out of hand. An opening reception will be held Saturday, March 28, 3:00-6:00pm, and the installation will be open for the general public on two additional dates.
Part of the ongoing Art On Purpose project "Everyone An Artist"

MONDAY, March 30th (well...not really the weekend, but...)
The Load Of Fun Theatre - 120 North Ave.
Jackie Milad! SCHOOL! The LOF/T! Monday, March 30th, 7pm. Free and tea.

SCHOOL is regular show-and-tell series that features one artist or collaborative group talking about or demonstrating their work in front of live human beings. Artists will be encouraged to prepare lectures about a topic, presentations about their work (specific projects or general retrospectives), or even a performance of a work in progress. Then we all talk.
As simple as it sounds, these forums geared towards in-depth discourse seem hard to find outside of our academic institutions. All are welcome.

Rosenberg Gallery - Goucher College
This show is up and open, though technically the reception is not until April.
Letters, Words, and Phrases - Monday March 23 - Sunday April 26
Artists' Reception: Thursday April 9 at 6 p.m.

The Rosenberg Gallery presents works by painter Cara Ober, printmaker Rebecca Katz, photographers Susan Elder and Craig Dennis, sculptores Ruth Bowler and R.L. Croft, and mixed-media artist Susan Brandt, and drawings by Julie Marie Geare and Molly Springfield in an exhibition that explores how letters, words, and phrases translate into visual ideas.
