Artists Pay Homage to the Many Charms of Baltimore

The Editors


Charm City, currently featured at Asya Geisberg Gallery, is a collection of materially-driven abstract works by artists who live in or have a deep connection to Baltimore, Maryland.


Through material exploration, these artists push against traditions of art-making in abstraction. By utilizing found objects, fibers, undulating lines, maximalism, and deeply personalized processes, the artists are redefining abstraction while charming the eye in curious and playful ways.


Baltimore is a gritty space with complicated narratives but is also a hotbed for creativity, with an underground arts ecosystem unrivaled by most American cities of its size. This exhibition celebrates the abstract risk-takers who have been a constant in the Baltimore art scene.


Together, these artists are shifting preconceived notions of Baltimore to one that centers community, creativity, and celebration, and by working through material-driven abstraction, the artists are asking viewers to truly feel Baltimore as it is today, a wonderfully diverse and welcoming creative haven.

The exhibition is on view through August 26, 2022.
