The Maryland Arts Place announced Tuesday that it has moved from its previous home in Power Point Live to a new location in downtown Baltimore.

The 33-year-old non-profit contemporary arts organization has relocated to 218 W. Saratoga St., in a building that it owns and manages for "financial and strategic reasons," according to Dawn Gavin, president of the organization's board of trustees. The move will bring the gallery under the same roof as the organization's informal nightclub, the 14 Karat Cabaret.

The board of trustees will renovate the first-floor gallery space and make improvements to the 20,000-square-foot building that it purchased into 1988, Gavin said in a news release.

The first exhibit in the new space will be "Out of Order," a free show in which artists hang their own work on the gallery walls on a first-come, first-served basis. That show will debut April 4.
