Gallery Sitting Friday & Saturday

If you missed the Tom Wolff reception at the 39th Street Gallery (or didn’t, but would like to have another, perhaps more leisurely, look at the show) I’ll have the Gallery open on Friday the 24th, 7:00-9:00 pm, and Saturday the 25th, 12:00-4:00 pm.

You can see CENSUS: A Photographic Survey, Tom Wolff‘s portraits of business owners, staff and artists of the Gateway Arts District:

And you’ll be able to see the artworks of 10 area artists in the Corridor Exhibition Space:

The Brentwood Arts Exchange, where you can see the show Cultural Crossroads: Voices from Latin America and The Caribbean, will also be open during most of those hours (until 8:00 pm on Friday and 6:00 pm on Saturday):

And, of course, I’m always happy to show my own studio to visitors.

(The 39th Street Gallery will be open from 7:00-9:00 pm on Thursday, too, but with another “sitter.”)

Maryland Arts Council at the GAC@B

The Maryland Arts Council had a gathering at the Gateway Arts Center @ Brentwood on Friday, beginning with a meet-and-greet in the Brentwood Arts Exchange.  In attendance were Arts Council members from all over the state of Maryland as well as county and state politicians.  The board and staff of the Gateway CDC were represented, a number of local artists (including several of us residents) attended and, of course, the Brentwood Arts Exchange managers and staff were there.

The meet-and-greet took place amidst the newly installed show “Cultural Crossroads: Voices from Latin America and The Caribbean.”

Then the group went up to the second floor to see the Tom Wolff photography show in the 39th Street Gallery and many of the studios.

The Arts Exchange and the 39th Street Gallery have opening receptions on Saturday, October 17, from 5:00-8:00 pm.  [See previous post for more details.]  These are two outstanding shows.  If you miss the opening receptions check the right column of this blog for the galleries’ hours.
