Proprietor: Talking Fine Art with Merritt Miller of Renaissance Fine Arts

Gallery_3792

At Renaissance Fine Arts, sisters Merritt Miller and Rachel Rubin showcase a smart and diverse collection of art, including artists that range from regional to international. The gallery, started by their mother in the 1980s, has a constantly evolving collection – pieces sell and are replaced on a regular basis.

The sisters pride themselves on their ability to find art that is exceptional, then bring it back to the Baltimore community. “We’re local and that’s what we’re about,” says Miller. “Finding art nationally and internationally and bringing it here.”

Here, Miller shares the story of the gallery and some of her favorite things about the job:

The Art of Charles Dwyer at Renaissance Fine Art Gallery

Charles Dwyer Art

catch of the day fish (2)With three locations, the Renaissance Fine Arts & Merritt Gallery house the largest collection of art in the Mid-Atlantic region. That makes the gallery as worthy of a visit as any of our local museums. Dedicated to presenting and preserving the work of both contemporary emerging artists and established masters, the gallery contains original works by artists such as Picasso, Matisse, Renoir and Warhol. An impressive showing, to be sure. But of course, we also love artists whom we can still meet in the flesh. That’s why we’re saving Thursday, October 9th for the champagne reception and opening of Charles Dwyer’s solo exhibition at Renaissance Fine Arts. Dwyer will be on hand to meet with guests as they experience Dwyer’s diverse collection of works including original works on canvas and paper, hand-embellished giclées, and an exclusive collection of limited edition photographs.

Current Gallery Commodifies Fine Art

0

Eighty plus artists (mostly from Baltimore) are showing their work as part of CART at the Current Gallery. CART is a novel gallery show that recreates the atmosphere of a mini-mart. Shelves and magazine stands are filled with affordably priced works that parody items found at a grocery store.

The show’s curators sought to explore the effect of taking something typically seen as an unnecessary luxury (fine art) and selling as if it is a weekly staple. At CART you will find neatly packaged bread tags, fake pies and plastic wrapped “Bob Ross style” paintings among other items. If something catches your eye, it’s likely very affordable. If not, it’s worth the experience of browsing around a bizarro fine art supermarket.

CART is running until Sept 4 at the Current Gallery and can be viewed on Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 4.
