We posted about Bike Show way back in May, and well, times flies and the event is nearly here. The opening reception is September 13 from 6pm-8pm, and the exhibit will run through October 27.
Here’s the official word:
Maryland Art Place (MAP) is pleased to announce its kick-off exhibition of the Fall, Bike Show. As Baltimore’s ever-growing cycling community evolves and develops, MAP would like to showcase those artists and individuals who’ve embraced bike culture. Co-hosted by Bike Maryland, the exhibition’s intention is centered on the relationship between people and their bicycles and will include an opening reception Thursday, September 13 at 6pm.
Bike Show is curated by Dawn Gavin, MAP’s Program Advisory Chair & Associate Professor in Drawing and Foundations at the University of Maryland College Park. The exhibit will include a variety of artists presenting everything from bike-based installations to more traditional portraiture photography of people with their bikes.
Artists include: Chris Bishop, Faith Layla Bocian, Dan Perkins, David D’Orio, Eric Dyer, Ryan Humphrey, John K. Lawson, Joshua Wade Smith, Jean Francois Rauzier, and Kenk: A Graphic Portrait by Nick Marinkovich (Illustrator), Alex Jansen (Producer/Director), Jason Gilmore (Filmmaker/Designer), Richard Poplak (Writer)
MAP is located at 8 Market Place, Suite 100 within the Power Plant Live! complex, a central location for all modes of transportation, including bicycles. For more information please visit www.mdartplace.org.
