Current Gallery


Current Gallery

Current Gallery and Artist Collective is an artist-run gallery and studio space located at 30 South Calvert Street in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor business district.

The cooperative was founded with the purpose of creating a venue where contemporary Baltimore artists and musicians can present work “devoid of any pressures to commit to standards set by other more established galleries in the Baltimore area.”[1]

The cooperative hosts visual and performing arts, live music, and artists studio spaces. The artist cooperative is made up partially of recent graduates and current students from the nearby Maryland Institute College of Art.

History

The gallery began operation in December 2004 after receiving permission from the Baltimore Development Corporation to occupy a formerly condemned building on the corner of South Calvert Street and Water Street in the heart of the Inner Harbor business district. The artist cooperative was originally granted use of the space for only six months. After this time the structure was scheduled for demolition. However, as of September 2008 the building has yet to be demolished and the gallery has expanded use of the structure to include artists’ studios.

The gallery was voted the 2006 “Best Art Galley” in Baltimore by the Baltimore City Paper.[2] It has also served as an exhibition venue for the annual Baltimore Artscape festival. The cooperative has played host to multiple up-and-coming indie rock performers, such as Beach House and Dan Deacon.
