Every spring for the past few years, Make Studio artists have been invited to come “up county”, to show their work in special exhibitions highlighting inclusion, creativity, and community in the beautiful public spaces of Baltimore County Public Library's Hereford Branch. Several of our artists have also developed and presented popular mixed media workshops to groups in the library’s The Hive makerspace.
UMBC's Department of Visual Arts presents the 2020 Visual Arts Senior Exhibition, celebrating the work of graduating seniors in Photography, Graphic Design, Cinematic Arts, Animation/Interactive Media, and Print Media and reflecting the interdisciplinary orientation and the technological focus of the department.
Alexandra Deutsch whose vintage persona on Instagram is @volumes_of_vintage, is a fashion historian, vintage collector and creator of the #lovelettertobaltimorevintage social media campaign. In her talk, Quarantine Fashion: A Love Letter to Baltimore Vintage she will discuss the phenomenon of fashion in quarantine. Her illustrated chat will explore how people are connecting through clothing not only in Baltimore, but on a global scale.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
The BMA invited several Baltimore-based galleries and collectives to curate digital exhibitions at tomorrows.artbma.org. Galerie Myrtis, Creative Alliance, ICA Baltimore, and Current Space, among many others, present the work of artists including Ernest Shaw, Zoë Charlton, LaToya Hobbs, Antonio McAfee, and Graham Coreil-Allen. Drop in the virtual galleries, and if you’re able, be sure to support them. All transactions will be conducted by the individual galleries, who will keep all proceeds along with the artists they represent.
What is thread? Is it just a long, thin strand of cotton, nylon, or other fibers? What is the thread that holds us together? How is thread made? This exhibit explores the answers to these questions and much more. This Call for Artists show features 20+ different artists from around the area and their interpretations of what thread means to them using a variety of mediums. Available in an online catalog format!
In fall 2019, UMBC's Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery presented Experimentalist: The Art of Robert W. Fichter, the first retrospective of the artist’s career in over thirty years. We are pleased now offer this exhibition in an online version, available here.
