Things to do in Baltimore this week 1/30/17

It’s a slow start to this week as far as fun activities go.  You just have to make it til Friday and Saturday where you will find plenty of options.  Sunday is the BIG GAME so unless you like football you are going to be pretty bored.  That is why God created Netflix, right?  I myself watched The Crown from start to finish in one day so I’m not really practicing what I preach here on the blog this week.  Don’t worry, the events in February and March are looking mighty promising and my calendar is already filling up.  Before you know it, spring will be here.

The curator, James Williams II, asks the viewer to stand with the work and present themselves as beings constantly in flux. Whatchamacallit considers the multiple identities that one person can inhabit in just the time it takes to span a gallery exhibit. It challenges the viewer to acknowledge the myriad of identities in our United States of America. Whatchamacallit contrasts the artists’ influenced identities governed by culture and searches for language that is bigger than both their physical presence and unyielding language.

New Works on Paper: Jerry Gilmore w/ Miss Ellen Cameron
6PM – 8PM
Creative Alliance
3134 Eastern Ave, Baltimore
A recent arrival to Baltimore through the Creative Alliance’s Resident Artist program, Jerry Allen Gilmore exhibits his expressive, mixed media works with the intuitive mask drawings of Highlandtown resident and Outsider artist, Miss Ellen Cameron in the two-person exhibition New Works on Paper. Emotion and energy dominate in this exhibition of expressive mixed media works by two artists from very different backgrounds. Resident artist Jerry Allen Gilmore’s dynamic works are deceptively personal as he creates a cast of whimsical characters to tell his own story. Community matriarch and outsider artist Miss Ellen Cameron’s beaming mask drawings and bold sketches harmonize with Gilmore’s symbolic works on paper. Both artists display an instinctual embrace of expressionist tendencies in response to their experiences and the vitality of Highlandtown.

Kahlon: The Cut Up Series Part II, Proximity to Dead Skin
6PM – 12AM
E.M.P. Collective
307 W Baltimore St, Baltimore
Curated by Abdu Ali and Elliott Brown Jr., Kahlon presents Proximity to Dead Skin, the second installment of “The Cut Up” series. Taking place at EMP Collective on February 4, 2017, the audio-visual exhibition will feature artists who employ colloquial language and materials to respond to social, political, and economic alienation.
Proximity to Dead Skin is used to describe a daily existence of living as the other in corrupted and spoiled environments; a distance to the end or the beginning – the dead skin – that tends to be closer to black. This proximity within itself is a ring that we inhabit that is not of death, but is living on the edge of a very specific brink in which our lives could be ended due to forces or systems outside of our control. How does one react to such a circumstance? How do you consider evolution and progress given the length at which we have reinforced our humanity and confronted the opposition?
Participating Artists: Dana Davenport, Najee H.F., Keiff Jones, Jaamil Olawale Kosoko, Kelly Lloyd, Rakiya Orange, Kaila Philo, and RAFiA SANTANA
