In “Art of Jazz,” Tommy Roberts displays a collection of his favorite jazz performers captured on canvas, inspired by the many people he has met or read about.  A Baltimore-based artist, Roberts strives to convey the impressions of experiences he has gained through his life. In his portraits of people and animals, Roberts has an uncanny ability to capture the subject’s emotions, character and spirit. His interpretations of landscape paintings reflect the atmosphere, beauty and essence of the scene.  A graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art, Tommy maintains a distinct enthusiasm for life in his work. According to the artist, “creating art is a spiritual high that fills my soul with joy.”

Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower is open every Saturday from 11am to 4pm.  Guests have an opportunity to view artwork throughout the building, including 15 floors of working artist studios and special exhibits.  Visitors can also learn more about the historical building and participate in a tour of the clock room ($8).

The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization which serves as Baltimore City’s arts council, events agency and film office. By producing large-scale events such as Light City, Artscape and the Baltimore Book Festival, and providing funding and support to artists, arts programs and organizations across the city, BOPA’s goal is to make Baltimore a more vibrant and creative city.
