Baltimore’s quaint neighborhoods are celebrated in the painted scenes of Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower resident artist Matt Fenton’s Impressions on Canvas. The exhibition demonstrates a constant striving for spontaneity and an impressionist’s sense of light achieved by working in plein air. Fenton depicts city neighborhoods along railroads and water including harbors, seashores, lakes and rivers, the countryside and cityscapes. 
 
Matt Fenton has been painting and drawing since childhood, working in oil, watercolor and pastel paintings, favoring a realist style with an emphasis on impressionist brushwork. Fenton studied at the Maryland Institute College of Art, in addition to Mitchell School of Fine Arts, Baltimore County Adult Education, School 33 Art Center, Zoll School of Fine Art and Schuler School of Fine Arts. The Baltimore artist paints vivid landscapes, still life and portraits in his studio at the Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower in Baltimore, Maryland.

Lateral Distance

Opening Reception: Saturday, November 3, 2018, 5-7pm

Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower presents “Lateral Distance,” an exhibition by artist Amy Wetsch, on view Saturdays from October 27, 2018 through February 23, 2019 from 11am to 4pm. Wetsch, a current MFA candidate at MICA’s Mount Royal School of Art, created works in reaction to her recent experience interning with a team of planetary scientists at Johns Hopkins University. 

The “Dragonfly” mission is proposed by Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, which was recently selected as finalist for NASA funding. The mission would initiate an up-close and personal study of Titan by sending a robotic drone to map out its surface composition. Interpreting the extreme science of planetary exploration, Wetsch has created a large-scale installation, sculptural objects and drawings that aim to capture her imagined essence of Titan, as well as the wonder and grandeur of our solar system.
