Waller Gallery is pleased to present the exhibition Reflections From The Moon Below, a first for Baltimore artist Markele Cullins. This exhibition is Markele Cullins’ first solo show which explores nature and family as sources of healing, reflection, and acknowledgement of pain. The exhibition showcases printed textiles, blue toned photography, video and painting collage. Reflections From The Moon Below references imagery from the past and present as tools for how memories and experiences pull, shift, and expand overtime. Cullins creates work that pulls from within by juxtaposing and altering these images with one another. Markele Cullins has contributed to the arts and music community through public speaking, curating, and djing in the city for over six years.


Markele Cullins is an interdisciplinary visual artist and DJ born and based in Baltimore, MD. Cullins works in a variety of mediums ranging from photography, design, installation, and experimental video. Cullins went to UMBC for his bachelor’s degree. Throughout his conceptual and research-based practice, he explores themes of intimacy, memory recollection, and technology. As a performer and DJ he has performed at Motor House, Metro Gallery, Space Camp, and The Baltimore Museum of Art. Cullins spoken at Baltimore Pride, The Creative Time Summit, Terrault Gallery, and The 29th MAPACA Conference.


Waller Gallery is a multidisciplinary art gallery focusing on art created by people of color. Conceived in 2017 by curator and scholar Joy Davis, Waller Gallery has a vision to support artists in Baltimore, the US, and globally through exhibitions, programming, and collaborative projects. The gallery considers all forms of art including design, social practice, craft, and digital art. Notwithstanding the current political assault on artists, especially queer and poc artists, we stand with them and will continue the tradition of black 1owned businesses in Baltimore.
