Always an SWS favorite, this month welcomes the intimately-curated talk with a twist. You’re in for a treat this Friday, as CreativeMornings Baltimore showcase this month’s theme, failure, in film.
It’s called the FAIL COCKTAIL. Earlier in the month, the talented visual storytellers of ShineCreative.tv filmed a group discussion hosted by CMBal’s Katie Boyts. Boyts invited five local creatives to and after-hours discussion at Dooby’s to share their moments of failure and overcoming challenges in their lives. You’ll be able to watch the discussion unfold, listen to one of the panelists and this month’s guest speaker, MICA’s Christ Attenborough, talk more about how he applies lessons of failure in his work and in his classroom. And there there will be a final Q&A session involving all of the panelists from the film.
Mark your calendars and set your alarms. Don’t worry, there will be delicious coffee and pastries waiting to help you start your day.
Tickets are limited, so reserve your seat now. We’ll see you bright and early at The Walters Art Museum, this Friday. Talk starts at 8:30am.
If you haven’t gotten your art fix of the week, this Sunday’s closing reception of the SOMETHING DAWNING exhibit at The John Fonda Gallery, is the event to get it.
The show is curated by Max Anderson, Jared Brown, Lee Heinemann, Amanda Metcalf and Julia Yerger, which showcases these five Baltimore artists in a transitional space. One of the artists, and former Contemporary intern, Lee Heinemann, is proud of what he and his fellow artists have created. “The show has work in many formats and media,” he said, “And the gallery physically exists between the street and a theatre.” Pretty cool.
And it’s conversational contemporary visual work such as SOMETHING DAWNING to which The John Fonda Gallery has dedicated it’s space.
Be there, this Sunday, at Theatre Project, located at 45 W Preston. Enjoy some light refreshments, starting at 2pm.
