Maryland Art Place (MAP) is pleased to open its first exhibition to the public since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. Long in the making, SEEN, curated by Josh SiskJoe Giordano with support from Audrey Gatewood, represents a comprehensive and inclusive overview of music with a heavy emphasis on Baltimore Indie, Rap and Hip-Hop genres and the photographers that captured this important time.
 
Baltimore’s music scene has been on the rise during the last 20 years. SEEN includes images of artists such as KSwift whose untimely death led to the 92Q KSwift Memorial Scholarship Contest and Internship Program in 2009, to indie all stars such as Beach House who have achieved international fame since releasing their first album making Pitchfork’s Best Album list in 2008. 

The exhibition’s inception came to MAP from local photographer and former Board Trustee, Joe Giordano and was produced in partnership with WTMD radio who is creating a documentary segment on the last 20 years of Baltimore music. The documentary will be screened at MAP in November (details to come.) In the interim, hear more by tuning into WTMD Towson Radio Tuesday, September 15 at 9pm and Sunday, September 20 at 4pm. Collectively MAP & WTMD Radio thank the PNC Foundation for their support of this important exhibition.

About the Artist:

Lang Wethington is an artist and educator who lives and works in Maryland. Whether painting abstract canvases in oil or portraits in watercolor, his pursuit of meticulous detail is a way to practice mindfulness. Lang’s work has been featured in a variety of group exhibits in Maryland and DC and can be found in dozens of private collections. 

Artist Statement:

“My artistic practice is similar to meditation. When meditating, I focus on my breath. When my mind wanders, which it inevitably does, I try to catch it and bring it back to the breath. When painting, I try to focus on the line. When my hand wanders, which it inevitably does, I try to catch it and bring it back to the line. Sometimes, if I’m lucky, I experience the feeling of being present."

Due to COVID and the ever changing social distancing landscape, we ask that all guests RSVP for the reception. Please contact Caitlin@mdartplace.org to reserve your spot 

We hope to see you  Wednesday, September 30  from 5 - 7pm for the opening reception.
