Out of Order show at Maryland Art Place

Here are some pictures I took at the "Out of Order" show that happened at the Maryland Art Place on Friday. It was a very impressive turnout, although I think many of the attendees were artists. The place was absolutely packed like sardines which unfortunately made it somewhat difficult to look at the artwork. The event lasted 3 hours and we stayed nearly to the end. By the time I left, I didn't see many works that had been bid on. I'd say maybe 1/4 of the art had bids, and most of those pieces were priced extremely low to begin with. Most were under $100, some were even as low as $1.00. I ran into more people I knew than I expected, but it was nice to catch up with people, and just to know that people are still making art.

This piece was done by a woman who took part in a photoshop workshop Reid and I gave at Johns Hopkins through the Baltimore Museum of Art.

Dragons anyone?

Candy and chips jackpot!!! These were the "snacks" served.

my friend Rachel's work (looks like a screen print but it's actually pen!).

Jon and Reid mulling over the artwork.

My work is the small one right in the middle in the brown frame.
