Maybe we’re just feeling artsy this week at Catch of the Day, or maybe there’s actually something in the air. Most likely it’s the latter. Though Baltimore usually brims with cultural and artistic offerings, occasionally the city just seems to swell with really good stuff all at once. This may be one of those weeks. A perfect example is the Arts & Culture Happy Hour being offered on October 1st at Galerie Myrtis. Director Myrtis Bedolla is opening her doors for a special Monday showing of the gallery’s latest exhibition, Revealing the African Presence in Renaissance Europe: The Contemporary Response.
The exhibition features works of eight artists influenced by a coinciding exhibit (that means up right now!) at the Walters Art Museum. See what we mean about so much good stuff at once? Pieces in the Contemporary Response “collate modern culture to interpret the role of Africans serving as diplomats, merchants, slaves, and rulers through an aesthetic rooted in black cultural history.” The gallery has limited space, so those interested in attending should RSVP.
Galerie Myrits is located at 2224 North Charles Street in Baltimore. Arts & Culture Happy Hour will take place October 1st from 5pm-7pm. RSVP to [email protected]
