Gone are the days when we made valentines in school out of paper plates and doilies, relishing guilt-free in the seemingly unlimited craft supplies, and handing out democratically the finished product to everyone we knew. Sure we might celebrate with friends, or secretly hope for a homemade card from the kids, but let’s face it: We are adults now, by golly, and we usually have to narrow it down to one special valentine these days. We all know to book the reservations in advance, and pick up the flowers, but who has time to make a card? Still, nothing says “I love you” quite like that timeless tradition of writing those exact words.

There are many, many ways for a community to come together. And there are just as many ways for us to celebrate our city. Now more than ever, it seems that Baltimore needs us to get out there and show our love for our city and our communities. And with the fantastic spring weather, and the amazing grass-roots organizing we’ve seen recently, this is the perfect time to get out and enjoy the best that Baltimore has to offer. Druid Hill Park has long been beloved by Baltimoreans for its sprawling green hills, amazing views, and so much more. In the 1950s and 1960s, the Druid Hill Reservoir was the site of weekly outdoor festivals that brought the community together around a love of art, and of the park itself. And it’s in the spirit of these historic festivals that Art Outside was created. It’s a one-day festival the recreates the sense of creativity and community that made those historic gatherings so special.
Once again, the Sugarloaf Crafts Festival is bringing some of the best American artists and artisans to the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium. For the weekend of April 24-26, you can stroll the fairgrounds and stock up on unique handmade gifts in anticipation of Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, graduations, and weddings. And of course, you can always just shop for yourself. And while the craft show features work by artists from all over the country, a number of Baltimore area artists will be present, as well. Look for 3Clothing by Nikki Gordon, clay monsters by Cat Holt, and great jewelry from Mary DeMarco-Wolfe.
