2 Art Openings This Weekend!

House Show

Friday, September 21 6pm - 8pm

Urbanite @ Case[werks]

1501 St. Paul Street

Suite 116

Baltimore, MD 21202

Join us for the opening of HOUSE SHOW! Co-curated by Marianne Amoss, Marian April Glebes, Sarah McCann, and Jessica Young of D center Baltimore, the exhibit studies and celebrates the idea of the rowhouse as storyteller. It examines how these familiar structures serve as narratives, recording and telling our personal stories and the stories of streets, neighborhoods, and entire cities. What are the stories contained within rowhouse walls? How do rowhouses reveal how we live now, and how we used to live?

In keeping with the interdisciplinary mission of both Case[werks] and D Center Baltimore, HOUSE SHOW features work in a variety of mediums and by a range of artists, representing architecture, photography, sculpture, oral history, and more.

The exhibit is at Urbanite @ Case[werks] from September 21 through October 24, 2012.

Black Foliage

Saturday, September 22 7- 10pm


405 W. Franklin Street

3rd Floor

Baltimore, MD 21201

This exhibition brings together over 60 artists using a wide range of techniques and imagery within the field of drawing, painting, collage and sculpture to create a singular artistic vision. BLACK FOLIAGE takes its name from the contemporary psych rock band Olivia Tremor Control’s 1999 album Black Foliage: Animation Music Vol. One.

Like the album, this exhibition combines pop and experimental aesthetics into something eccentric and cohesive. The combined efforts from these artists will create something akin to a psychedelic zen garden. *Black Foliage, originally took place on a much smaller scale at Chinatown Arcade, A DIY pop up art space and formerly a cell phone dispensary within the alley at 48 Bowery in New York City on July 22nd 2012.
