Best City Paper

Thanks to Baltimore's City Paper for mentioning the Minstallation Gallery in the '08 "Best Of Baltimore" issue. Credit is due not only to those folks mentioned in the article, but to Jed and everybody else at the Creative Alliance; thanks also to Matt McConville who made the space look so great.

Keep an eye out for more excellent shows, including let it out and let it in, our season-opener by Geoff Grace.

Geoff Grace, "let it out and let it in" OPENS SEPTEMBER 13

Geoff Grace inaugurates the fall season with a new minstallation opening this Saturday, September 13, from 5 - 7 PM.

let it out and let it in is the artist's first project since winning the 2008 Janet & Walter Sondheim Prize. In this quiet celebration of the wide open spaces of pop songs and the American highway, billboards pass by with the gentle rhythm of a road trip, slowly unfolding the lyrics to "Hey Jude."

An artist, musician, and teacher, Geoff Grace has exhibited frequently in the galleries and alternative spaces of Baltimore, including exhibits at the BMA in 2005 and 2007. He has also shown his work in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Los Angeles. Grace is known for packing grand statements into elegant packages, and his understated sensibility is a natural fit for the Minstallation Gallery.
