BOPA’s 2024 exhibits begin with Emerge: Vol. 3, Spring Edition. Now in its third year, the Emerge Baltimore exhibition series serves as a platform for local rising artists to show their work in the historic galleries of the Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower. Emerge: Vol. 3, Spring Edition kicks off on Thursday, March 21, with a public opening reception from 6:00–8:00 p.m. to celebrate the solo shows of Xavier HardisonBlissArmyKnife, and Jennifer McBrien


Xavier Hardison works in stone, creating tablet paintings and gravity-defying sculptures from found boulders. His exhibition, “ORIGIN,” will be presented on the ground floor in the Lobby Gallery. The Mezzanine Gallery will host painter BlissArmyKnife’s show, “Let’s Play!” To Bliss, the canvas is an opportunity for novelty and world building — a place without gravity or limits, where anything can happen. The third floor Members Gallery will exhibit the work of Jennifer McBrien — an artist on a mission to transform fabrics into fine art. In “Unraveling Threads,” McBrien “paints” with thread, weaving in her love of birds, plants, and form, stitching history and nature throughout her pieces.   


The Emerge: Vol. 3, Spring Edition will be on view from March 21–May 27, 2024. Gallery hours are on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. by appointment and Saturdays during Bromo’s public hours from 11:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.
