Grab a complimentary beer, glass of wine, or cup of coffee as artist Khadija Adell outlines some of the key questions surrounding strategies for building a long-term art practice. How do we define the marketplace? How is value created around an artist’s work? How do we all contribute towards disrupting the systems that devalue the labor of historically marginalized groups of artists? This program is part gallery talk, part group conversation and participants will leave with tools and resources to help them continue working on these issues in the future.

Maryland Art Place (MAP) is excited to present its first exhibition of the year at Hotel Indigo, featuring the works of recently deceased, Baltimore based artist, Ina Claire Helrich. Join us, in partnership with Alex Cooper Auctioneers, in celebrating Ina Helrich’s life.
Ina Claire Helrich was known as a prolific Baltimore painter and printmaker who exhibited her work in over 60 juried shows and 14 solo exhibits throughout her lifetime. She graduated from the Moore College of Art in Philadelphia and later studied at the Maryland Institute College of Art, where a scholarship fund was established in her name. Kornblatt Gallery, the Baltimore Museum of Art Sales and Rental Gallery, and C. Grimaldis Gallery represented Helrich locally.
Helrich was active in the art community as a past president of the Maryland Chapter of Artists Equity Association and founded the Maryland Artists Equity Foundation in 1984. Additionally, she was involved in the Baltimore Arts Festival Planning Committee, the Art Committee of the Jewish Community Center, and Artscape. Helrich dedicated her life to supporting the work of Maryland artists.
Alex Cooper Auctioneers will be auctioning Mrs. Helrich’s complete body of work as part of their Alex Cooper Art Select Auction program. The auction will be held online beginning April 17 through April 26. Catch a sneak peek of the collection up for auction at Hotel Indigo at the opening reception!
We look forward to seeing you there!

Connect + Collect is a new initiative brought to you by BmoreArt’s Cara Ober and Jeffrey Kent, an artist and curator based in Baltimore, designed to create awareness and momentum among new and experienced collectors, and to promote a culture of collecting in Baltimore.
Our second panel is with NY-based Independent Curator Dexter Wimberly, Founder and CEO of the upcoming Art World Conference to be hosted in NY in April 2019. Topics to be discussed include differences between collecting art directly from artists or purchasing through galleries, how to form collecting communities and groups, and best practices for building ethical, respectful, productive relationships between artists and patrons.
We welcome artists to this conversation who want to strengthen relationships with collectors, as well as those who want to build private and public collections, including curators, collectors, gallerists, and art professionals.
Our panel will be followed by a reception in The Showroom and each ticket includes an adult beverage at the bar.

His exhibitions have been reviewed and featured in publications including The New York Times, Artforum, and Hyperallergic; and have received support from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Wimberly served on the board of the New York-based arts nonprofit, The Laundromat Project for 4 years and actively supports other arts organizations. Prior to developing his curatorial practice, Wimberly was the founder and CEO of the pioneering marketing and public relations agency, August Bishop. Wimberly has also served as Director of Communications for The Museum for African Art, NY; Director of Strategic Planning at Independent Curators International, NY; and Executive Director of Aljira, a Center for Contemporary Art in Newark, NJ.
