Abhidnya Ghuge (Texas)

Our Lives Are Green

Abhidnya "Abhi" Ghuge is a multidisciplinary installation artist who hand carves large-scale woodblocks, printing on thousands of paper plates. She creates site-responsive installations, encouraging viewer interaction to enhance experience. The paper plates, no longer disposable, are now transformed and imprinted with life.

"There is a feeling of inner comfort and peace in the repetitive process of printing, sealing, painting, folding and installing - a feeling every person should have in our struggle to belong and grow amidst an effervescing global culture." -Abhidnya “Abhi” Ghuge

Heather Harvey (Maryland)

ENCAMPMENT

Encampment is an elegaic celebration and defensive stance for all that is marginal, invisible, undervalued and under threat.  Working off of the fragile, provisional, absurdist, and dangerous climate of our current national movement, it recalls itinerancy and life on the periphery in all its forms.  This makeshift, transient constructions are both welcoming refuge and aggressively defended bulwarks that straddle the line between elegance and the grotesque using primarily collected trash from daily walk.

Heather Harvey creates site-specific installations and objects that straddle traditional boundaries between painting, drawing and sculpture. Harvey exploits materials’ inherent qualities to yield philosophical and mechanical insights into how the physical world operates and what it means to inhabit a body.

Out of Order

Join us for Out of Order, MAP's 20th Annual Spring Benefit, Silent Auction and Party!  Out of Order will take place Friday, April 7, 2017. View and bid on works from over 250 regional artists - from emerging and student artists to established professionals. 

By covering the walls from floor to ceiling, Out of Order provides an opportunity for artists to hang their work in a salon-style exhibition.  OOO is a unique way to get involved with Baltimore’s growing art scene while supporting one of Baltimore’s most established contemporary arts organizations.  Proceeds from art sales are split equally between MAP and the artist.  Revenue generated at Out of Order directly supports MAP’s programs, exhibitions and opportunities; furthering MAP’s mission to support emerging and mid-career artists and professionals throughout the year.

Pearl & Whimsy Thrift, and music by DJ AK of Ridiculous Entertainment.  Costumes are encouraged and awarded - dress to impress in your most classic and unusual emerald attire!  A special "Bromo District" award, including tickets to the Everyman Theatre's production of "Noises Off", plus dinner for two at Forno Restaurant, will be gifted to the winner of the costume competition.  Pixilated Photobooth will be ready to snap pictures of your fabulous ensemble throughout the evening!
