Seeing art at its source

Critic's Choice: Art

April 29, 2001|By Holly Selby

Ever wonder where inspiration strikes? School 33 Art Center today offers a chance to peer into the studios of Baltimore artists -- and to ask how they do what they do.

From noon until 5 p.m., the art center is offering a bus tour -- led by School 33 director Peter Dubeau and artist Breon Gilleran -- of about two dozen art studios. The tour, which focuses on neighborhoods north of North Avenue, will include stops at the workspaces of artists such as Cathy Leaycraft, who uses figures and natural elements to create surreal photo collage landscapes, and James von Minor, who transforms the everyday materials of wood and cement into sculpture.

Tickets for the bus tour, which leaves School 33, 1427 Light St., at noon and returns at 5 p.m., are $15 ($10 for children under 12). Box lunches will be sold for $8. Those who don't wish to take the guided tour may pick up a free map of the tour at School 33 and go it alone. Resumes and slides of artists' work will be available for perusal at School 33, for those who wish to create their own tour.

For information or reservations, call 410-396-4641 from 10:30 a.m. to noon.
