Welcome to our new weekly feature, “The Rack,” about local shopping news and finds.
This weekend, Baltimore’s fine arts community opens its doors to show the public how and where art is being made. School 33 Arts Center kicks off its 28th annual event with a guide in this week’s City Paper, with an easy-to-follow map, and list of associated events.
Individual artists and established galleries alike, join forces to promote Baltimore’s thriving arts scene and make it more accessible to all. The tour is free and open to the public, and provides a unique opportunity to view and purchase art directly from the artists. In the process, visitors can learn a little about how work is created, and why each piece is so unique.
Love Jewelry? Baltimore Jewelry Center has a beautiful gallery, shop, and public use workspace, at which professional jewelers will be stationed demonstrating metalwork techniques and promoting the center’s classes for all skill levels. Need a painting for home or perhaps a gift? Choose from the handful of artists represented by galleries like Jordan Faye Contemporary. For a larger, broader range of work, visit one of the many buildings in the city full of individual studios, like the Mill Center in Hampden, Area 405 in Station North, Creative Alliance in Patterson Park, or the Bromo Tower downtown and make a day of it.
