JASON AUSTIN: BALTIMORE IN REPOSE EXHIBITION

Exhibition Opening: FRI MAR 1 | 6-9PM
On View: FRI MAR 1 – SAT APR 13
Artist Talk: THU MAR 14 | 7PM

Step into the vibrant and lively world of everyday people and places in Baltimore through the eyes of our former resident artist, Jason Austin. Baltimore In Repose invites you to explore the dynamic and diverse narratives of our city. Each piece serves as a window into the lives of friends, places, and loved ones, on a color spectrum that articulates the joy and vibrancy of Baltimore. As you navigate through the exhibition, you’ll discover a modern twist to the traditional art-viewing experience. Way-finding QR codes are embedded in each painting, allowing you to seamlessly connect with the depicted locations around the city. This interactive element adds a layer of exploration, inviting you to embark on a journey through Baltimore guided by Jason’s artwork. The color spectrum becomes a language, speaking volumes about the artist’s connection to the community and his dedication to capturing the essence of everyday life.
Jason Austin proudly represents our alumni Resident Artist cohort, a testament to the creative community Creative Alliance is actively fostering. This initiative aims to support and empower emerging artists, providing them with a platform to showcase their talent and contribute to the cultural tapestry of our beloved city. We invite you to be a part of this artistic dialogue by supporting Jason Austin and the Resident Artist Program. Your participation as an audience member adds depth to the conversation, ensuring that the creative spirit continues to thrive.
