The guy who I replaced in my apartment was a great multimedia artist who sadly committed suicide. It really affected my friends and everyone around me, and it was a great loss for the Baltimore art community. Nudashank Gallery recently had a retrospective and celebration of the life of Waltr Carpenter, who made some really kick-ass shit while he was still with us.
Brooklyn-based artist Ben Phelan recently had a few pieces at Nudashank Gallery in Baltimore. One of them, the Dream Machine Device, consists of acrylic orbs fitted with strobing LED lights, making for a truly intense, visceral experience.
