It is still cold outside and some snow remains on the ground. If you are looking for inside activities in the next few weeks you might think of visiting the Mitchell Gallery at St. John’s College or the Maryland Federation of Art Gallery at Maryland Hall located just off Spa Road in the former Bates Middle School building.
On January 29 a show entitled “Six in the City” opened. The exhibit consists of urban photography and painting featuring six local artists. The show runs through February 16. For more information about this show go to http://www.mdfedart.com
The Mitchell Art Gallery is featuring a show entitled “Dialogues: Words and Images in Art, 1500-1924“ which opens on January 31 and runs through April 6. Word-image relationship is studied in this exhibition. The pieces showcased are from the Renaissance through the end of the First World War. For further information go to http://www.stjohnscollege.edu
In the Chaney Gallery at the Maryland Hall for Creative Arts there is an ongoing exhibit featuring works of The Artery, Annapolis’s newest alternative art cooperative, and Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts and the Performing and Visual Arts (PVA) programs at Bates Middle School and Annapolis Senior High School in an Art and Response show. See how the students create works in response to the works created by The Artery artists. Supporting arts in our schools introduces our youth to a new way of thinking about expression. The show runs through February 14 and more information is available at http://www.marylandhall.org/
Also running through February 14 is an exhibit entitled Hai-Ou Hou: Window Shopping Paintings which combines Hai-Ou’s love of fashion with art. This exhibit is located in the Merino Gallery at Maryland Hall.
So, the weather outside might be “frightful” but the art work available to see inside is so “delightful” and will brighten your spirits on any wintery day.
We here at Flag House Inn Bed & Breakfast are still closed during most of February for interior work but will be looking forward to seeing new and returning guests beginning in March.
