Art Business / Street Vending Help
« Last post by SpencerSalan on May 23, 2017, 09:44:06 PM »
I'm an amateur artist from Maryland and I'm curious if it is legal to set up a table on the sidewalk to sell paintings. I'm sure this discussion has come up before but I can't seem to find the thread. I make small acrylic ink paintings on watercolor paper. Any help figuring out if I need location or vendong permits would be greatly appreciated. I was under the impression that I was covered under the first amendment to sell art but I'm seeing some articles that say otherwise.  I'm also curious about the rules in Baltimore or the national mall. Thanks for your help!

*Experience stories of migration and nature through movement & sound

Stories of human relocation, several generations back or more recent, merge with comments from scientists, naturalists about flight, migration and climate.  Told through movement, sound and media, Aflight draws a picture of connections to earth and to each other.
People -- like animals -- move to react to a push or pull in their natural habitats. As we confront global issues, JFD invites audiences to experience the real, personal journeys of the people and ecosystems in our midst -- in audio and movement.

Openings, Art Show Listings, Events, and Meetings / Artist Talk: Re-Locations
« Last post by BAE on May 12, 2017, 09:15:33 AM »
Join us with Morgan Craig, Joey Manlapaz, and Trevor Young to hear their thoughts and reflections about their artistic process.

Re-Locations explores the way that representation influences our understanding of place. Artists Morgan Craig, Joey Manlapaz, and Trevor Young each address our relationship with the spaces around us through representational painting. Yet, each of their approaches creates a very different understanding of what their subject mean to us as a places – Craig with lush, saturated colors evocative of decay, Manlapaz with a precision that can be at once familiar and distant, and Young with an uncanny use of light to create emotional charge. Together, their grouping of work in Re-Locations focuses a spotlight on the power of artists to interpret and imbue our lived environment with meaning.

In a cool and dark basement, under the light of the Wolf Moon, five intergalactic spirits joined forces to form a magnificent creature: Zodiak. Cemented together by an invincible weld of funk and soul, the young band is on a mission to gift her audience with a spellbinding experience of intimacy. With members hailing from the District and Baltimore regions, Zodiak boasts a unique audible experience: a sonic blend of existing genres like funk, rhythm and blues, and go-go.

Their freshman album, Basement Brew, “has what it takes to be in heavy rotation on anyone’s iPod” (VibesAndVino.com, 2016). And, though the studio album has been received with great warmth, Zodiak ’s strength lies in their live shows. They bring love and light to all their performances and have captivated audiences all along the East Coast. Hear Zodiak at zodiakdc.com

Tickets $15. Available on the Parks and Recreation E-Store: http://www.mncppcapps.org/pgparks/e-store/shopv2.aspx?tag=Brentwood%20Arts%20Exchange or at the door.
