On behalf of the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance (GBCA) and William G. Baker Jr., Memorial Fund, it is my honor to announce the 2021 Baker Artist Awardees. In order to serve a greater number of artists during the COVID-19 pandemic, this year, six artists from each of the six award categories have been awarded prizes of $2500 each. These 36 incredible artists were selected by an anonymous jury of local and national professionals from the Baker Artist Portfolios website.
As is true every year, their selections were based on excellence in three areas: mastery of craft, depth of artistic exploration, and a unique vision.
Over the next several months, these awardees will be featured in virtual awardee showcases, as well as a special episode of Maryland Public Television’s Artworks program, hosted by past Baker Awardee Wendel Patrick.
