This exhibit highlights the work of current Studio Artists during their tenure at School 33 Art Center. Since 1979, the Studio Artist Program has provided exceptional studio space at subsidized rates to more than 125 professional artists. In 2008, School 33 established the Studio Mentoring Program, which facilitates studio critiques and professional development for our resident artists. By inviting prominent artists and arts professionals from the mid-Atlantic region to conduct one-on-one studio visits, our goal is to provide support and constructive feedback in helping artists fulfill their creative path. Studio Artists are able to stay at School 33 Art Center for up to three years, so the 2011 Studio Artists Exhibition features Studio Artists that have been here for over two years and a few whose tenure has been only been a few months.
Previous Guest Mentors have included Jayme McClellan, founding Director of the Civilian Arts Project in Washington, DC; Cara Ober, artist and founder of the illustrious Bmoreart blog; George Ciscle, Director of the Curatorial Practice MFA program at the Maryland Institute College of Art; and Doreen Bolger, Director of the Baltimore Museum of Art. Recent mentors include Laura Ammusen, Director of Exhibitions at Goucher College; Zöe Charleton, acclaimed artist and faculty at American University; and Shannon Egan, Director of the Schmucker Art Gallery at Gettysburg College.

*WST, SSY: Every week Bmoreart’s contributors travel around town to view the art showing in and around Baltimore City. ‘We Saw This, So Should You’ is a series where we post photos from the best of these exhibitions. Obviously, photos are inadequate in capturing the inherent qualities of these works. Art is always best viewed in person, so we recommend that you do so, whenever possible.
