Baker Artist Awards 2018
The Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance (GBCA) and the William G. Baker, Jr. Memorial Fund will kick off its 10th anniversary with an exhibition of works by 2017 winners David Marion (visual art) and Sara Dittrich (interdisciplinary) and 2018 winners Amy Sherald (visual art) and Abraham Burickson (interdisciplinary). Each year, one artist per discipline (Visual, Literary, Film/Video, Performance, Interdisciplinary, Music) is adjudicated to receive a $10,000 Mary Sawyers Baker Prize and one of them is selected to receive the Mary Sawyers Imboden Prize, which is an additional $30,000. At $40,000, this is the largest art prize in the region. Awardees are selected by an anonymous jury from more than 900 Baltimore-region artists who created a free, online portfolio at www.bakerartist.org. Selected artists exemplify a mastery of craft, depth of artistic exploration, and a unique compelling vision.
