The Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower host a free opening reception for two new exhibits Thursday, June 9, 2016 from 5:30 to 7:30pm. “Minas Konsolas: Paintings,” a solo exhibition by Minas Konsolas and “Afterwards: Landscapes Remembered” by Elizabeth Sullivan are on display from Saturday, June 11 through Saturday, September 10, 2016 at Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower. At the reception, guests will have the opportunity to view the exhibition, meet the artist and enjoy light refreshments. The Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower is managed by the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts and is located at 21 S. Eutaw Street.
The inspiration for Minas Konsolas’ work is the environment where he lives and the places he has visited, along with their history, myths, poetry and music. He creates his images by scraping and smearing paint onto his canvasses, alternately adding and eliminating in multiple layers. Minas employs intuition and a technical knowledge of his medium, with both coming together to guide him through his process of working.
Elizabeth Sullivan works in various media: oil, painting, encaustic (wax & pigment) and monotypes (printmaking). Her works are primarily derived from the landscapes found in Baltimore and other places she has traveled with her husband.
Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower is open every Saturday from 11am to 4pm. Guests have an opportunity to view artwork throughout the building, including 15 floors of working artist
studios and special exhibits. Visitors can also learn more about the historical building and participate in a tour of the clock room ($5).
