See my work in a group show opening this Saturday!

A group exhibition featuring painting interpretations of Francis J Child’s English and Scottish Popular Ballads, by 13 artists from around the country:

Eberhard Froehlich, Jovan Erfan, Annie Ewaskio, Bart Lynch, Jeremy Hughes, Ryan Jedlicka, Teddy Johnson, Tyrus Lytton, Ben Mckee, Shaun Preston, Art Rosenbaum, Rachel Wolfson

With musical performances of the ballads by Baltimore's own old time and country favorites Walker and Jay, Brooklyn based musician H. Honne Welles, and Grammy Award winning collector of traditional music, and banjo wiz Art Rosenbaum.

Art Reception: 7-9

Musical performances: 9:30-12:30 (5 dollar suggested donation)s

A collection of 305 distinct ballads from England and Scotland, collected by Francis James Child in the late nineteenth century, the Child Ballads consists of songs which have survived through oral traditions for several hundred years. More than just a collection of songs in an old dusty book, these songs—dealing with such timeless topics as morality, murder, romance, supernatural experiences, historical events, riddles, and folk heroes —found their way across the Atlantic to become part of the core of traditional Appalachian music in America. The Child Ballad Show is an exploration and continuation of these beautiful and strange old songs through the mediums of painting and music.

Catalogs of paintings and corresponding ballads available for purchase at show.

Curated by Teddy Johnson

Organized by Teddy Johnson and Heather Rounds

lots of enamel and some wintergreen oil transfer. mostly just oil paint. the beginning of a series, perhaps? hard to see those vermont hills in the background, all purple heather and taupe. more fun in person.
