Baker OFF THE WEB opens Tomorrow + new INFO SESSIONS announced!

Please join us tomorrow night, as over 100 Baltimore Area artists bring some of the regions newest art to the oldest museum building in America!

Opening WEDNESDAY, November 14th, 6pm – 9pm
FREE and open to the public!
On display through December 16, 2018
at the Peale

Each year, nearly 1000 artists create a Baker Artist Portfolio, making the Baker Portfolios website the largest collection of Baltimore-area artists. As part of its year long celebration of 10 years of Excellence, the Baker Artist Portfolios is bringing their gallery to the Peale.

Like the website, this exhibition was open for participation from any artist in the region to self-select and bring one piece of art to share.

The Baker Artist Portfolios were created by the William G. Baker, Jr. Memorial Fund, and are a program of the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance.
