Jordan Faye Contemporary & THRIVE in coordination with Full Circle Gallery presented TRUE GRIT, an exhibition that launched their latest program and new exhibition center.
Jonathan Hanson, ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers) Baltimore chapter president, curated this collection of works from photographers whose main interest is telling Baltimore’s story from a street level view. With the psyche of a blue collar, hard working, hard living town, Baltimore offers a truly unique urban experience, representations of which echo in the conversation, history, lifestyle, and contemporary self-image of its inhabitants. The true grit of this town is in its shear willingness to keep going. Baltimore can be raw; it can be charming; it can be dangerous. It can also be very, very sweet. TRUE GRIT touchs on the narratives of life in Charm City rather than the iconic and ballyhooed.
Selected artists in TRUE GRIT are Jennifer Bishop, Jim Burger, J.M. Giordano, Jonathan Hanson, Patrick Joust, Brian P. Miller, Natalie Obermaier, John Patterson, Matt Roth, Rebecca Rothey, Noah Scialom, James Singewald, Josh Sinn, David Valle, and Bill Weirzalis.
JORDAN FAYE CONTEMPORARY is relocated and expanded to a 3300sq ft space in the Bromo Arts District. Their new home will be in the Maryland Art Place Building at 218 W Saratoga Street on the 5th floor.
THRIVE is an arts organization dedicated to enriching the lives of artists, curators and the community in which they reside. THRIVE will provide consulting, workshops and extended residency experiences.
FULL CIRCLE GALLERY is a dedicated exhibition space for photographers, located on the first floor of Full Circle Ltd, a fine art services studio near Station North.
