ArtTable is going to Baltimore!

Please join us for a day of art and exploration in Baltimore, Maryland. This trip will feature visits to two of Baltimore’s leading arts institutions, a private collection, and a contemporary gallery. Enjoy a lovely early summer’s day with members and friends exploring this vibrant city!

Please note: Transportation to and from Baltimore is not included in this trip. We will meet at the first location on the itinerary, after which a private bus will provide transportation between other locations on the itinerary. We will also utilize ride-sharing apps for the final visit of the day. Recommended transportation to/from the city can be found below.

ITINERARY

  • 10:45 AM – Meet us at the American Visionary Art Museum for a tour of Healing and the Art of Compassion (and the Lack Thereof!) with the museum’s Founder & Director, Rebecca Hoffberger. This will be Rebecca’s last exhibition before she retires in the fall.
  • 12:15 PM – Our shuttle bus will take us to the residence of Keith Eric Timmons for a private viewing of his collection, which includes works by Amy Sherald, Jerrell Gibbs, and many more.
  • 1:30 PM – We will enjoy a delicious lunch at Gertrude’s Chesapeake Kitchen.
  • 3:00 PM – After lunch, we will have time at the Baltimore Museum of Art to see dozens of works from public and private collections in an exploration of the full arc of Joan Mitchell’s artistic practice. Entry includes access to the whole museum in addition to the Joan Mitchell exhibition. Attendees will have time to explore at their leisure.
  • 4:15 PM – Finally, we will end our day with a private tour and reception at Goya Contemporary/Goya-Girl Press, where the exhibition, The Soul Selects: Louise Fishman and her Heroes, Mitchell, Martin and Hesse, will be on view.

This program is open to ArtTable members only $165, and non-members for $195.
Your ticket includes entry to both museums, lunch, and transportation (from the American Visionary Art Museum, to the private collection, to the Baltimore Museum of Art, and to Goya Contemporary).
