Check out the Baker Artist Awards 2011 Exhibit at the Baltimore Museum of Art beginning on September 7th!

The BMA celebrates the Baker Artist Awards with a FREE exhibition of works by the three Mary Sawyers Baker Prize winners: visual artist Gary Kachadourian, performance artist Audrey Chen, and beatboxer and vocal percussionist Shodekeh. Recipients of 18 $1,000 b-grants will also have the opportunity to exhibit their works at the BMA. The exhibition will culminate in a free late night closing party on Saturday, October 1st.

This year, 696 Baltimore-area artists submitted their work to the competition at bakerartistawards.org. The three winners of the $25,000 Mary Sawyers Baker Prizes were selected by a private jury of national experts.

The William G. Baker, Jr. Memorial Fund established the Baker Artist Awards in 2008-2009 and the b-grants in 2010-2011 to recognize Baltimore’s artists and engage regional, national, and international audiences in supporting these artists’ work. All Baltimore-area artists working in any creative discipline are encouraged to register, exhibit their work, promote the site to friends, and compete for the Mary Sawyers Baker Prizes.
