Kelly Walker // Hotel Indigo

10/14/2021

Kelly Walker

On View: October 13, 2021 - January 25, 2022

Opening Reception: Thursday, October 14th, 2021 | 6pm - 8pm

Hotel Indigo | 24 West Franklin Street | Free & Open to the Public

Maryland Art Place (MAP) in partnership with Hotel Indigo, are pleased to present new works by Baltimore-based artist, Kelly Walker. Walker's paintings will be hung in Hotel Indigo’s library and Poets Modern Cocktails and Eats. The reception will be held on Thursday, October 14  from 6 to 8pm. The exhibition will be on view at Hotel Indigo Thursday, October 14 through January 25, 2022

About the artist: 

Kelly Walker is an American born, self taught artist who continues to study at the ‘School of Life’. She found her way to Baltimore, Maryland by the age of 18 where she has lived ever since. Walker absorbs the beauty, chaos and reality of Baltimore City channeling it into her work.

In 2013, Walker purchased a rundown auto shop in the heart of the city. The building is located between the historic cultural arts district of Mt Vernon and the newly designated Bromo Arts district currently undergoing a neighborhood revitalization. In an immense labor of love, Walker transformed the downtrodden building into a live/work space that has been featured in Baltimore Magazine as a work of art in of itself. An art collection covers the inside walls, boasting of other local artists. The studio and apartment serve not only as a place of business and a home but sometimes Walker opens her home for gatherings which benefit community organizations such as Creative Alliances ‘Art to Dine for’.

The dichotomy of Kelly Walker’s world translates onto her canvases as she paints in fits of inspiration which has led to an expansive collection of unique series, committing spontaneous reflections of her mood and emotions to canvas. Walker’s abstract paintings demonstrate the techniques, textures, and patterns she employs as a professional decorative painter. She pushes mediums past their intended purposes, encouraging them to collide and react, not rejecting happy accidents and forcing incompatible materials to meet. Utilizing a wide range of atypical materials, her works are intricately layered, calling reference to landscape, graffiti and color fields. Walker’s artwork has been featured extensively at venues both in and outside of the Baltimore area, including the Rosenberg Gallery, Silo Point, Gallery 1951 in Los Angeles & Las Laguna Art Gallery in California and the Delaware Museum of Art."

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 Thursday, October 14  from 6 - 8pm for the opening reception.

Validated parking is available at 15 West Franklin St. Garage.

Virtual Opening Reception: May 6 | 6pm - 7:00pm | FREE

To check out the Virtual Exhibition Click HERE 

I want to Be: A series of performances that occur via telephone conference call by Anna Kroll and Chloe Engel.

Friday, May 14 @  7 pm | Friday, May 28 @ 7 pm | Friday, June 25 @ 7 pm

Call  (760) 548-9513

Towson University and UMBC present the fourth installment of the collaborative SPARK pop-up exhibition — SPARK IV: A New World? — in partnership with Maryland Art Place (MAP) and the creator and generous sponsor of SPARK IV,  PNC Bank. The exhibition in MAP's main gallery space is open to the public for view from April 29 through June 26, 2021, Tuesday - Saturday from 12pm to 4pm, with opportunities to experience the exhibition and programs virtually.

SPARK IV expands beyond a focus on light-based artworks of years past to embrace the notion of art's power to illuminate and trigger reflection and dialogue. In A New World?, artistic work is considered through the lens of the significant modifications to life during the pandemic alongside longstanding concerns such as systemic racism and the climate crisis. What have we been through and what happens next? After experiencing the chaos, upheaval, and uncertainty that dominated this past year, how do we see the world, and how do we cope, adapt, and persevere. 

SPARK is curated by Catherine Borg, a Baltimore artist tracing shifting narratives in American culture in photo and video-based artworks.

Exhibiting Artists: Amanda Burnham, Beth Yashnyk, Carrie Fucile, Evan Tedlock, Foster Reynolds Santiago, Grace Doyle, Irene Chan, Jenn Figg and Matthew McCormack, Jenny O’Grady, Jim Doran, Jon Lundak, Kelley Bell and Melissa Penley Cormier, Kyohei Abe, Luci Jockel, Lynn Cazabon, Monique Crabb, Nahid Tootoonchi, Jenee Mateer, Kat Navarro, Kimberly Hopkins, Rahne Alexander, Ryan Shelley, Safiyah Cheatam, Samantha Sethi, Sarah G. Sharp, Sookkyung Park, and Stephen Bradley.

“I Want to Be” | May 14 & 28 and June 25 at 7 p.m. 

Part of the UMBC and Towson University Collaborative Exhibition at Maryland Art Place (MAP), SPARKIV: A NEW WORLD artists Anna Kroll and Chloe Engel present “I Want To Be,” a series of performances that occur via telephone conference call. Kroll and Engel navigate a score in which they co-imagine events in a room. These are improvisational, spoken performances that have developed out of their collaborative practice of negotiating and refining scores to create imaginary realities. To attend, the performance audience members call a phone number at a specific time and listen to an improvisational guided exploration. Every phone call offers a new room, with infinite possibilities. A live-captioned version will also be simultaneously available. For more information, visit www.mdartplace.org.

Virtual Student Exhibition

Students from UMBC and TU were asked to submit work for the exhibition at MAP and seven were chosen to have their work presented along with the faculty in the gallery.  

10 students, 5 from UMBC and 5 from TU, were also chosen for awards based on their submissions and their work is presented in the virtual student exhibition.
