Art sale will benefit Choral Arts Society

November 15, 1993|By John Dorsey | John Dorsey,Art Critic

What do Rodney Carroll, Paige Davis, John Ebersberger, Beth Fiske, Betsey Heuisler, Barbara Kassel, Philip Koch, Raoul Middleman, Bennard Perlman, Amalie Rothschild, Tammra Sigler and Leonard Streckfus have in common?

No, not just that they're all artists. They are all represented in the Baltimore Choral Arts Society's annual art exhibit and sale, this year called "Art 93."

Started in 1990, this annual event at the conference center at Sheppard Pratt has proven a major fund-raiser for Choral Arts, bringing in, all told, around a fifth of the society's contributed income of about $100,000.

And, says Choral Arts music director Tom Hall, "It's also in keepingwith our ever-continuing efforts to work with other artists and other institutions. This Sunday we released our first recording, a compact disc produced in conjunction with WJHU radio. People who buy it will be supporting two arts organizations in town. We've also joined with the Baltimore Opera, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and Center Stage to offer an arts sampler series.

" 'Art 93' is a wonderful way of collaborating with individual artists and giving them a forum. We get a pretty good crowd and it gives the artists a venue they would not otherwise have."

The artists, who are invited to show their work, share a percentage of the sale price. The show will be up for a week after it opens with a fund-raiser Friday.
