5 days until the event

One of the most prolific artists currently on the international art scene, Derrick Adams has been exhibited globally in France, Cuba, South Africa, England, Lithuania, Italy, and nationally at prestigious galleries and museums across the United States. On Friday, September 20, 2019, Adams returns to his hometown of Baltimore, Maryland for his show, Where I’m From, at The Gallery in Baltimore City Hall, marking Adams’ first solo show in his hometown.

Where I’m From, unveils ten (10) new never-seen-before large scale paintings taken from scenes of his childhood in Baltimore City. On this new body of work, Adams says, "These paintings are expressionistic scenes taken directly from my family’s photo albums, archiving our history and functioning more broadly as reflections on representations of kinship and close-knit relationships."

Derrick Adams' Where I’m From, Baltimore Family Portrait series will be on view at The Gallery in Baltimore City Hall from September 20, 2019 through November 22, 2019.
