Baltimore Portrait

Artist, Erin Fitzpatrick, has announced the exhibition of the first installation of paintings from the Baltimore Portrait series. The exhibit will run from August 24th -October 12th at Rocket to Venus in Hampden.

Fitzpatrick, MICA graduate and Baltimore-based portrait artist, will be exhibiting the first twenty pieces in her latest series, Baltimore Portrait, a showcase of Baltimore’s twenty-thirty somethings.

“It has been really fun working on this series. The response from people who have either seen the paintings or want to be painted, has been so enthusiastic that this idea has turned into a large-scale project. The portraits appeal to the viewer’s desire to people watch and maybe recognize someone he or she knows” says Fitzpatrick.

Each 12”x12” portrait is painted in oil on a clear-primed piece of wood. The wood is treated to prevent deterioration while still showing its natural grain as a backdrop to the headshot.
