The Baker Artist Portfolios features the work of artists in Baltimore City, Baltimore County, as well as Anne Arundel, Carroll, Harford, and Howard counties in Maryland.
Artists with active portfolios will be automatically submitted for a Baker Artist Award on January 20, 2017 at 5pm. One awardee per discipline will be selected to receive significant monetary prizes, an exhibition at the Baltimore Museum of Art and a showcase on Maryland Public Television's Artworks program.
The Baker Artist Portfolios were created to support artists and promote Greater Baltimore as a strong creative community. The online portfolios are open to artists working in all disciplines who live and work in Baltimore City and its five surrounding counties. The portfolios expose area artists’ work to regional, national and international audiences. The site has been viewed by hundreds of thousands of art lovers, critics, gallery owners, academics, and leaders in creative business in nearly every country around the globe. The program serves artists of all disciplines.
The portfolios and associated awards were established by the William G. Baker, Jr. Memorial Fund and are a program of the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance.
