Baker Artist Awards 2012

From September 5, 2012 — October 7, 2012

The BMA celebrates the Baker Artist Awards with a multi-disciplinary exhibition showcasing the winners of the prestigious $25,000 Mary Sawyers Baker Prize: musician Nathan Bell, photographer Alexander Heilner, and sculptor David Knopp.

This spectacular showcase of talent also features a diverse group of visual art and music from the $1,000 b-grant winners: Brent Crothers, Miranda Pfeiffer, Tiffany Jones, Chris Bathgate, Yoshi Fujii, Ellen Durkan, Smooth Kentucky, Marcia Wolfson Ray, and the late Lauren Simonutti.

The William G. Baker, Jr. Memorial Fund established the Baker Artist Awards in 2008-2009 to recognize Baltimore’s artists and engage regional, national, and international audiences in supporting these artists’ work. All Baltimore-area artists working in any creative discipline who live and work in Baltimore City and the five surrounding counties are encouraged to register, exhibit their work, promote the site to friends, and compete for the Mary Sawyers Baker Prizes.

This exhibition is generously funded by The William G. Baker, Jr. Memorial Fund. The Baker Artist Awards program is directed by The William G. Baker, Jr. Memorial Fund with the assistance of the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance.
