BALTIMORE MARYLAND - ALICE OPENING

THE THEATRE PROJECT


I had an absolutely amazing time in Baltimore, despite the crappy weather and insane work hours we all put in prior to the Alice in Wonderland production presented by Scott Rink of DanceRink at Theatre Project, I can honestly say that I look forward to heading back to Baltimore for another visit when the weather warms up.

Despite being a contributor to the actual "Alice" production via backdrop and prop designs, I can honestly say that I looked forward to curtain call each and every night. Scott managed to direct and pull together an amazing group of collaborators as well as a brilliant tech team and incredibly talented group of dancers who completely devoted themselves to this multi-dimensional piece. We had a nearly full house every night including today's matinee performance that was pleasantly 2/3's filled with children.

Brandon and I managed to do a brisk business selling t-shirts featuring images from Alice contributions as well as other pieces with my artwork on them. And if you're wondering, yes indeed, we have a few extra for sale. Feel free to contact me through here if you're interested.

I'll have some professional photos up withing the next day or so. In the interim, I'm going to post a few shots from the trip including this beautiful 120+ year old home/bed and breakfast that the Theatre Project houses it's visiting artists in as well as some shots from Brandon and my excursion to the Walters Museum and a few interesting buildings and sculptures in the Mount Vernon section of the city we bounced around in. As a side note, I have to say, if you want to see some absolutely amazing period architecture, head to Baltimore and specifically the Mount Vernon area as I was absolutely amazed at block after block of Victorian architecture, single family homes, brownstones, banks, insurance companies, they were all represented.

The trip was fantastic all around (and I didn't even have to throw out the Bathwater). Can't wait for our next adventure and your next artistic adventure!

Hey Gwen- Yeah, we had an amazing time in Baltimore, 14 hour work days prior to the opening included, lol.

And clearly from my pics, you can see the type of artwork that really speaks to me as an artist. The simplistic forms of both the rabbit and serpent are absolutely amazing and so beautifully done.
