|Matt Muirhead, Roland Park Watertower |
Matt Muirhead emigrated to the United States in 1984 when he was eleven years old. He lived in the Detroit area, followed by Fort Lauderdale Florida, Buffalo New York, Toledo Ohio, Chicago Illinois, and eventually Japan. He lived in Tokyo for three years, traveling through Asia and teaching English. He moved to Baltimore in 2007. He lived in Hampden for 10 years and currently lives and makes art in Parkville.
Since living in the Baltimore region he’s gained notoriety as an artist creating fun, fantasy paintings which feature images of Baltimore and its surroundings. He likes to paint cats, row houses, flowers, aliens, UFOs, monsters, tentacles and whatever else he can imagine. Sometimes he buys art in the thrift store and adds things that occur to him. He loves to do commissions! If you see something that you like but would like it a bit different get in touch! He’s spent the last few years weathering the pandemic by taking care of his newborn (now 2 year old) son and making art. He’s has an active instagram account where you can see most of what he’s doing currently.
We primarily highlight emerging and established artists, and regularly exhibit work from regional and East Coast artists, but are expanding our reach. From 2018 to the end of 2021 the gallery hosted six exhibits a year, with one of them being a two person exhibition. Moving forward, the gallery is divided to have 3 rotating solo exhibits at once with a fourth space for a permanent exhibit from the gallery owner and director Scott Philip Goergens. This new format allows more artists to exhibit throughout the year with exciting crossover potential. The gallery is in the first floor of an unassuming home built in 1842 and meanders the length of the building providing a unique experience for the patron. Wall colors were selected by historic paint expert Matthew J. Mosca, and designer Henry Johnson. The gallery is owned and operated by artist Scott Philip Goergens and his husband Scott Howard. It is our goal to keep art and culture strong in the neighborhood and Baltimore in general.

Sculptures as statements of architecture’s past and present
Review by Mark Jenkins
Detail of Her Dream, Cherry, 51” x 12”
A painter turned woodworker, Renee Balfour makes sculptures that emulate natural forms, not architectural ones. That doesn’t mean that the 11 pieces in “Nature Unbound,” her Amy Kaslow Gallery show, are rough and craggy. The sinuous shapes are artfully shaped and smoothly polished, and fitted together in ways that emphasize the artist’s control over her material.
Earlier this month at Amy Kaslow Gallery, Renee Balfour spoke to a full house about her process. She detailed how she selects the wood, her sculpting technique, and shared insights into her work. Watch the recording to learn more about the artist and Nature Unbound.

Inspired by the Hubble Space Telescope photographs, Anne Marchand’s work is an exploration of the surprisingly colorful and frequently fluid-like state of the universe. Her mixed media pieces combine texture, color, and negative space to convey the dichotomy between the chaos of entropy and cohesion of nature.
“Space, color and mystery are calling cards to begin the work of layering materials on canvas,” said Marchand. “Moving with both conscious and spontaneous actions, I combine themes of spirit and matter. My choice of materials conveys transparent layers and depth of meaning reflecting the mysteries of creation and destruction. The painting process is metaphor for patterns emerging in nature and from invisible forces. I am drawn to images that open the viewer to questions about personal experience, consciousness and transformation.”
