BrickHaus Art Space Organizes Exhibition of Artworks by Recent MICA Graduates
Induction is on view from July 7 – 28 at BrickHaus Art Space, 2602 Greenmount Ave., Baltimore, Maryland
BrickHaus Art Space presents Induction, a juried exhibition of works by 15 recent graduates of Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). Jurors Adam Farkas, Kyle Freeman, and Ben Graham-Putter selected the works from the 2012 Commencement Exhibition at MICA. To be eligible, artists had to register for jurying the week before MICA’s Artwalk, an event where art-lovers, and collectors come together to meet artists and view incredible artwork by nearly 400 graduating seniors.
“The idea came naturally to us. Here we have 400 of the nation’s freshest and most talented artists all in one place. Selecting works during ArtWalk presented us (the jurors) with the unique opportunity not only to view works in person, but also to talk with the artists about their techniques and processes,” says juror Kyle Freeman, Gallery Manager at Maryland Federation of Art.
“Our idea for this show was to Induct young artists from MICA into the art world and help them continue their momentum as they transition into life after school.” Says Ben Graham-Putter, Co-Founder of BrickHaus

This little gem sold this week at the Sagamore Hotel for the 80” of Art auction in celebration of New World’s 25th anniversary. All proceeds benefited the VIsual Art Department at New World School of the Arts. The opening was a success! Check out how it turned out here. Check out photos from the reception!
This painting was done in 2010 during my Junior year at MICA. Although it is different from what I am making now (Photographs mostly), it explored the theme of broken relationships which is an idea I have been interested in for a long time and have recently discovered as a reoccurring narrative in my thesis.
Happy to give back to my high school in any way I can. If it weren’t for that little family…I wouldn’t be where I am today.
I had the pleasure of interning for Maryland Art Place this past summer. With this internship, I sharpened my administrative skills in newsletter design, social media promotion, writing, program research and photography! My installation photographs for "Painting in Parts" was published in the catalog for the exhibit! Above you can see a preview of one of my photos in the catalog.
