2/21: Wild Horses

Thursday, February 21, 2019 | 5:30 PM

The fifth of eight events of the "Beyond Beautiful: One Thousand Love letters" exhibition at Maryland Art Place and Area 405 January 17 to March 10 (www.onethousandloveletters.com), "Wild Horses" explores love's tenacious hold through addiction's ride. In letters to and from loved ones caught up in the throes of substance use, we see resilience, fortitude and holding on regardless of the challenges—testimonials of undying love and unbreakable connection. "Wild Horses" features two singer-songwriters whose ballads pay tribute to the theme of love when confronted with such hardship: QueenEarth and Kirk Wulf. The program features participation from clients and staff of Baltimore recovery programs who contributed letters to the project: Dee's Place, Marian House, Powell Recovery Center, BCRI, and the Comprehensive Care Practice at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.

The 5:30-6:30 pm reception period for this opening event is graced with jazz keyboardist George Spicka, and light fare provided by The Classic Catering People.

"Wild Horses" is sponsored by Powell Recovery Center, and Baltimore Magazine serves as the media sponsor for the "Beyond Beautiful: One Thousand Love Letters" exhibition.

The seventh of eight events of the "Beyond Beautiful: One Thousand Love letters" exhibition at Maryland Art Place and Area 405, January 17 to March 10 (www.onethousandloveletters.com), "Love Thy Self" features sharing from those whose letters inspired drawings by Peter Bruun, testimonials of finding light for and toward one’s self. The event features singer-songwriter ellen cherry, who presents a series of songs on recovering one’s sense of self, and artist Phylicia Ghee, whose focus on mindfulness illuminates the lovable within each of us. Organizations that focus upon self-love and self-esteem within their communities, and whose community members contributed letters to the project, share their tales as part of the program: Sisters Together and Reaching (STAR) and the Men & Families Center.

The 5:30-6: 30 pm reception period for this opening event is graced with jazz keyboardist George Spicka, and light fare provided by The Classic Catering People.
