Artists' Market

Location: Mt Royal Ave

The Artists’ Market is a juried exhibition highlighting artists who create and execute original, professional quality work.  Festival-goers are invited to view and purchase art from more than 100 vendors, selected from nearly 400 applicants.

The Emerging Artist Program supports artists participating in their first outdoor art show.  Selected Emerging Artists are paired with established artists working in the same medium to answer questions about exhibiting and offer advice on maximizing sales, booth design and art pricing. The program also provides a space in the Artists Market, free of cost.   

Jermaine T. Bell is a visual designer who holds a B.F.A. in Graphic Design from the Maryland Institute College of Art. Bell has collaborated with the Baltimore Museum of Art and developed the branding and marketing for the fine artist Stephen Towns’ solo exhibition co | patriot at Gallery CA. Through his work at Havas Helia, Bell gained footing in advertising with clients like Michelob Ultra, Liberty Mutual Insurance, and Constellation Energy. Bell is currently one of Fagan Harris' Baltimore Corps fellows where he is the Marketing & Programming Director for Impact Hub Baltimore. Bell also spearheaded REdesign & REbuild, an initiative with AIGA Baltimore and the Neighborhood Design Center to rebrand and relaunch small businesses' marketing collateral after the unrest of April 2015.

Deana Haggag has been the Director of The Contemporary since the spring of 2013. Prior to her work with the museum, she was the Curator-in-Residence at Gallery CA, which is also located in Baltimore, MD in the City Arts building — home to over 90 artists. Deana received her MFA in Curatorial Practice from the Maryland Institute College of Art and a BA from Rutgers University in Art History and Philosophy. In addition to her work at The Contemporary, Deana lectures extensively, consults on various public art initiatives, contributes to cultural publications, and teaches at institutions such as Towson University and Johns Hopkins University. She is on the board of the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance, serves as a member of the Affiliates Board for the Museums and Society Program at Johns Hopkins University, and is an active participant of the StageOne/FANS council at the Baltimore School for the Arts. Deana was named “10 People to Watch Under 30” by the Baltimore Sun in 2013 and a “Young Cultural Innovator” by the Salzburg Global Forum in 2015.

Kelly Rand believes handmade will save the world — and she’s spent enough time surrounded by craft supplies to know for sure. Rand is a frequent contributor to Handmade Business magazine and the Craft Industry Alliance; her work has also appeared in Bust magazine, Studios magazine, The Crafts Report, and Etsy. Rand once served as arts editor at DCist (part of the Gothamist group) and as editor of Crafting for a Green World. Rand is lead author of Handmade to Sell: Hello Craft’s Guide to Owning, Running and Growing Your Crafty Business (Potter Craft, 2012). Rand also spent several years serving on the jury of Crafty Bastards, Arts & Crafts Fair, one of the largest indie craft fairs on the East Coast. She has lectured on the handmade movement for the American Craft Council and provided guest critiques for students at the Maryland Institute College of Art.

Travis Winters is joining Baltimore Clayworks as the 2015-2016 Lormina Salter Fellow. Winters has an MFA in Ceramics from Edinboro University in Pennsylvania and a BFA in Ceramics from Buffalo State College in New York. He has served a summer residency at Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts, as a short-term resident artist at Red Lodge Clay Center, and was most recently an Artist in Residence at Odyssey Center for the Ceramic Arts. He has exhibited at Baltimore Clayworks, as well as: Fire House Gallery, Morean Center for Clay, The Ceramics Center, The ARTS Center of Clemson, Workhouse Arts Center, and Push Gallery. Travis' work explores the creation of characters that captivate the imagination of the viewer, inviting interpretation and narratives that expand the work beyond its existence in the gallery. His animated figures with exaggerated folds and wrinkles create thought provoking visceral experiences using clay as a vehicle for tactile expression.
