Make Studio

Baltimore, MD

We are pleased to announce that four artworks by Creativity Explored artists will be included in Cordially Invited at Make Studio in Baltimore, Maryland this fall.

For Free Fall 2018, Make Studio is pleased to present Cordially Invited, a first-of-its-kind in Baltimore invitational exhibition and set of programming featuring artworks created in more than a dozen innovative U.S. and international studios that serve artists with disabilities.

Cordially Invited celebrates the exciting and thought-provoking art produced in progressive art studios as a way to better appreciate our neuro-diverse world. There will be a central exhibition in Make Studio’s Showroom Gallery as well as a satellite of smaller “pop-up” art displays in partnering venues. Participating artists come from diverse local and more distant studios including Art Enables (DC), Pure Vision Arts (NY), Gateway Arts (MA), Creative Citizens Studios (PA), Open Eye Gallery (MD), Friendship Heart Gallery (PA), Creativity Explored (CA), Studio In-Sight (MD), and World of Art Brut Culture (China). Select works from Make Studio’s roster of 32 artists will also be on display.

Cordially Invited opens to the public on Friday, October 5th and runs until Monday, October 29th. It can be viewed during Make Studio's open hours and by appointment.
