Charm Citycurrently on view at the Asya Geisberg Gallery, is a collection of material-driven abstract works by artists who live in or have a deep connection to Baltimore, Maryland.
Through material exploration, these artists push the traditions of artistic creation into abstraction. Using found objects, fibers, undulating lines, maximalism and deeply personalized processes, the artists redefine abstraction while charming the eye in curious and playful ways.

Together, these artists transform preconceived notions of Baltimore into one centered around community, creativity, and celebration, and working through material-driven abstraction, the artists ask viewers to truly experience Baltimore as it is. is today a wonderfully diverse and welcoming creation. haven.
