ABOUT OPEN SPACE:

Open Space Baltimore began as a collectively run space in Remington in 2009, and has since included a core group of members with a rotating cast of friends, volunteers and interns rounding out the Open Space team.Open Space aims to provide an outlet for artists ranging from local to international and to provide a space where the Baltimore community can behold these artists’ work. We believe that a successful arts space develops and curates a wide variety in programming; allowing for an expansive range of ideas while simultaneously generating and maintaining a greater scope of community interests. Since its inception, the gallery has maintained an interest in exhibiting all types of media, genres, and ideas from a broad geographical scope; thus the title ‘Open Space’. Open Space has been host to painters, sculptors, printmakers, book-makers, video artists and performers from allover the United States, Germany, Belgium, China, and Chile. We are currently working to reopen the gallery at a new location.

IN CASE YOU HAVEN’T HEARD:
Open Space is pleased to announce an open application for the Fifth Annual Publications and Multiples Fair, taking place March 7-9 at the D Center (16 W North Avenue) in Baltimore, MD.
We are seeking independent publishers and artists working in multiple (books, prints, sculpture, music, video, etc), who will have the opportunity to display and sell work to an audience of viewers, artists, gallery owners, collectors, and librarians over the course of the weekend. This celebration and survey will be accompanied by related lectures and programs. Last year’s fair featured over 60 vendors, two days of programming, and a sweep of related art events. While keeping a focus on publications and multiples, we’re aiming to grow this weekend into a citywide function celebrating the work of the artists and spaces who contribute to our art community and beyond.
The deadline for applications is February 5th, and vendors will be notified of selection February 10th. Due to limited space, not all vendor requests will be accepted. Fill out the online form here to submit your application, and direct any questions to openspacebaltimore@gmail.com Also visit openspacebaltimore.com.

On Wednesday night, a fire broke out in the building that houses Open Space and eliminated access to the gallery. While everyone involved here has stayed completely safe, the building is now legally off limits, and we are forced to close our doors for the time being. Most of the gallery’s valuables made it out of the space undamaged though many Open Space members and residents of the building lost music gear, tools, personal possessions, studios and housing.

We want to extend a huge thank you for every helping hand that has been offered our way and to express lots of love to the community that’s gathered during this time.

Please stay posted for upcoming benefit events and updates as we reconfigure. We will also have an online donation system up and running shortly and will be communicating our needs moving forward.

Currently, about 14 of us have been displaced and are looking for housing. Please see the following Craigslist ad for more information: http://baltimore.craigslist.org/hou/3786654254.html

Please send any potential housing leads to openspacebaltimore@gmail.com.

Again, the support of the community means the world to us. We could never have gotten this far without everyone and are confident that we will be back and better than ever! Thanks again!
