NOMA Gallery Artists’ Talk

“Whistle While You Work”: An open discussion with our member artists on what they listen to in the studio

Thursday April 15 from 7-8 pm
Artists are incredibly visual and most of our language centers around the elements of the visual world. Spatial, directional, color, texture, pattern: these are all words and concepts we gravitate towards. But what about the auditory sense? What music do we listen to when we are hoping for the perfect day in the studio? Do we even listen to music or do we like silence? Or a podcast? What does music and artwork have in common? What exactly is synesthesia and which famous artists had it? Join us to learn the answers to all these questions and more!

NOMA. It’s short for NOrth MArket.

Founded in 2015, NOMA gallery is a co-op fine art gallery which showcases contemporary and traditional art in a variety of mediums, including painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, sculpture, fiber arts, mixed media & jewelry. We represent 22 artists exhibiting in solo, duo and group shows.

The mission of the gallery is to promote excellence in the visual arts in many different disciplines. NOMA represents Maryland artists from Frederick County, Baltimore, Montgomery County, Hagerstown, Thurmont, Union Bridge, Westminster, and Wheaton. Located at 5th & Market Streets in the historic district of Frederick Maryland on the street level of the Griffin Art Center Building, we are part of the “First Saturday” openings. The openings are held throughout the year for the public to meet and speak with artists in a creative social environment. The gallery also hosts artist’s talks, workshops and lectures. The hours are: Fridays and Saturdays Noon-8pm. Sundays Noon-4pm, or by appointment. Call 240-274-7985 to set up an appointment.

Our shows change monthly. See our Current and Upcoming Exhibitions pages for details.
