Reception 1/19/23, 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.
“Spotlighting Maryland’s women artists who create in numerous mediums and are from many parts of the state is one of our most beloved programs,” says Diana M. Bailey, Executive Director. “Our location on N. Charles Street is on a busy thoroughfare in a historic neighborhood. It offers a unique and accessible way to showcase women’s immense contribution to the arts in Maryland.”
MWHC invites the public to a free artist reception, open to all, at the beginning of each exhibit. Visitors can meet the artists and learn about their techniques. At the same time, it is an opportunity to step inside the former Woman’s Industrial Exchange, a historic Baltimore landmark. The MWHC is also in the process of researching and preserving the history of the Woman’s Industrial Exchange in its two-year project Memories of the Woman’s Industrial Exchange.
Date and times of the receptions during 2023 will be available on the MWHC website and on Facebook. Sponsorships welcomed, contact Diana M. Bailey, Executive Director, for details.
