Walker is one of 120 Baltimore area artists whose work is included at the 19th annual Lotta Art Benefit at Silo Point on April 23. School 33 Art Center, a renowned Baltimore arts institution, hosts the event to raise funds for the support and growth of School 33, including its exhibitions, studio space, and arts education.
“Programs like Lotta Art offer a way for artists and the Baltimore community to help keep local art programs alive,” said Paul Frey, a 46-year-old self-taught artist of digital painting, comic-oriented art, and 3D modeling. An information systems developer and Woodberry resident, Frey became involved with the benefit through his partner, School 33’s exhibitions coordinator.
From now until the night of the benefit, visitors can browse through 157 pieces of sculpture, jewelry, photography, print-work, paintings, and fiber-work currently on display.
During the benefit, every piece in the exhibition will be given away to an Art Ticketholder. As each ticket number is called randomly, participants can take home their favorite work.
“It was very exciting to see someone choose my art during the art lottery,” said Frey who donated art last year.
The benefit has been held at Silo Point for the past three years. New this year will be an after party in the Silo Point Lounge.
“Come and share a great celebration of art and artists who live in the Baltimore area,” said Randi Vega, director of Cultural Affairs for School 33. “It will give you an opportunity to get to know each artist and their work.”
