Hampden is known as a haven for artists and art lovers alike. The neighborhood’s quirky sensibility appeals to the creative spirit; and the character of Hampden’s small businesses offer a charming and unique venue for local artists to show their work in a perfectly Baltimore setting. And all the better if the artwork is the type you might actually want to hang at home on your own walls. Next week, a solo show by Liza Hathaway Matthews (one of our favorite local artists), will open between two fab Hampden boutiques: In Watermelon Sugar and the Antique Exchange, right off of The Avenue.
Liza Hathaway Matthews is a local, contemporary, abstract artist. And while that may just sound like some art-world mumbo-jumbo, her work is decidedly accessible and undeniably exquisite. Her landscapes and botanical paintings leap off the canvas with delicate and luminous color, graceful form, and a whole lot of texture. They are indeed just the kind of work you want to look at again and again and again. But for that first glimpse, you can head to the opening, September 18 from 5-8pm. In true Hampden fashion, Grano Emporio will provide lite fare and The Charmery will provide frozen treats. Grano will even offer ten percent off of dinner for attendees of the art show that evening. Now that’s the neighborhood spirit.
Liza Hathaway Matthews’ art opening takes place Thursday, Sept 18th from 5pm-8pm at In Watermelon Sugar (3555 Chestnut Ave) and the Antique Exchange (3545 Chestnut Ave). For more information on the event visit www.lizahathawaymatthews.com
