When UMBC political science professor Carolyn Forestiere moved to Catonsville, she and her husband knew they wanted to fill their new home with local art. After thinking about it some more, they decided to take their curatorial endeavor up a notch — and open their home as a part-time gallery.
Their first show, “UMBC Through the Lens,” will feature five UMBC visual arts alumnae — Brittney Danielle ’12, Chrystal Smith ’12, Marlayna Demond ’12, Stephanie Ellis ’12, and Kimberly M. Haines ’12 — who will present photography related to their time as students at UMBC.
Forestiere said she was pleased to have five “wonderful photographers,” explaining she hopes “that the artists will receive exposure and further their professional credentials.”
The first show will be on Friday, October 5th, from 5 to 7 p.m. Read more about the show and get the gallery address here. The community is welcome.
