Each collaboration exercises a different relationship and uses a different medium. From photography to graffiti, design to hip hop, architecture to illustration, each piece brings a unique take on the art of the collaboration.

Most of the artists will be at the reception and a special performance by MC Arcieri Keness will be at 10pm. cash bar/no cover


Come to this show folks!  Featuring several of my photographic collaborations with Michael Owen!

Food=Art // Chef Chad Wells // Joe Squared // Campfire

I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph a Food=Art dinner.  This time the affair was held at the new Joe Squared in Power Plant.  This go around the chef was Chad Wells of Ale Wife and his sous chef John Jacobs.  Together they worked out a menu of what I would call elevated campfire food. Succulent hickory smoked trout, roasted beets, mac and cheese with duck, venison stew and a lovely quail dish.  Finally, for dessert s’more’s with candied bacon!  Yummm!!  And finally to tie the whole night together we were pleased to enjoy the bluegrass stylings of The Manly Deeds.   Enjoy the photos of the evening!

Hard Workin’ Pilgrims: Lumbee Indians in Baltimore City Industry

The Baltimore Museum of Industry (BMI) presents original artifacts, contemporary arts and crafts, and photographs from Baltimore’s Lumbee Indians. The exhibit Hard Workin’ Pilgrims: Lumbee Indians in Baltimore City Industry will run from September 19, 2011 to December 31, 2011.

Hard Workin’ Pilgrims: Lumbee Indians in Baltimore City Industry explores the Lumbee Indians migration from North Carolina to Baltimore City. They came, like many others seeking employment in local industries with the hopes to improve their quality of life. Thousands of Lumbee Indians settled in southeastern Baltimore concentrating in a 64-block area from Broadway to Patterson Park, many worked in drywall, sheetrock, and other construction trades, while other Lumbee Indians worked in factories, sewing plants or were self-employed.

Guest curator Ashley Minner says, “This is an unprecedented exhibition of the Lumbee experience in Baltimore City industry. It brings recognition to a vibrant community with a rich legacy that is a living part of this City’s culture and history.”  Baltimore’s Lumbee Native American community has become the largest outside of the North Carolina tribal territory in existence.  They have brought their culture and traditions, which they have maintained over the years.  Hard Workin’ Pilgrims: Lumbee Indians in Baltimore City Industry recounts some of their little know history, their legacy in Baltimore City Industry.

The exhibit is funded by the Maryland State Arts Council Maryland Traditions Program. For more information contact Robin Gabriel at 410-727-4808 ext. 146 or rgabriel@thebmi.org.  The exhibit is free with general admission.
