On October 19th, 2017, selected artists will gather at HOME Artist Residency to live and produce work culminating in a public group show. Join us for the culmination of this exciting, new endeavor. Exhibition runs Sunday, October 22, 3-5 pm. 410 S Conkling St. Baltimore 21224


Alleys & Intersections offers creatives working in any medium a unique platform to develop and exhibit work.

Humans are communal and private individuals, simultaneously. We share food, conversation, identities, while holding private moments, lives, and thoughts. The Alleys & Intersections group residency and exhibition seeks to explore this dichotomy in practice as well as a focus of creative expression. Alleys & Intersections was conceived by Michael Owen and Max Ferency, two Baltimore-based artists and friends who explore these relational themes in their individual artistic practices.


Final artist selections will be made by an esteemed panel of jurors, actively involved in Baltimore’s arts scene:

Maria Aldana

Education Director, Creative Alliance

Rafael Alvarez

Writer, Baltimore Sun, The Wire

Troy Burton

Executive Director, Eubie Blake Center

Why would I want to apply to this?

Because you want to connect and create. You will have an intensive opportunity to work alongside and connect with the other talented artists in the residency. You will also meet others interested in the Baltimore arts scene at the exhibition. If you are from out-of-town or new-to-town, it will be a great intensive introduction to Baltimore and all these aspects of the arts scene. Furthermore, once the residency and exhibition are complete we will post a page of the Home Artist Residency website featuring the work you contributed as part of the exhibition and a link to your website.

Do you really mean any medium?

What if I’m a performer? A 3D Printing Artist?

Yes, we really mean any medium. We want to work with you and the other artists to create a rich, multifaceted artistic experience for the exhibition. We will do our best to accommodate each artist’s specialty needs to create their best work while on site. We are interested in blending and showcasing creatives that appreciate and are fueled by a communal experience. If you have a crazy idea, throw it our way!

Does the proposed project have to begin and end at HOME?

Projects do not need to start at HOME, but finished work is needed for the exhibition, the last night of the residency.
