This Weekend


Curator's Incubator '09 @ Maryland Art Place
Three curators were selected this year to take part in Curator's Incubator '09 at Maryland Art Place. Margaret Winslow's Soft Space: Architecture in Contemporary Art, combines a set of drawings and installations that explore physical and psychological nuances in the built environment. Rachel Sitkin's In Our Nature: Artists Reflect on the Altered Landscape features artists who mine the outfall of urban development. The Art of the Set Up: Sound Objects as Artifacts was curated by Shelly Blake-Plock.

Relative Terrain @ The Whole Gallery
The Whole Gallery presents: Relative Terrain, new work by Andrew Geddes, Phuong Pham, and Marty Weishaar. In this exhibition, Geddes installs pedestrian commodities through structures that have been simplified into wood and vinyl; Pham presents drawings in horsehair, silk, and wax that communicate displacement and meditation; and Weishaar explores different modes of location, destruction, and play in his dollhouse installations. Geddes and Weishaar both teach art in the Baltimore City school system, and Pham works as a book conservator. All three artists reside in Baltimore.
