Analog’s Third Mini-Artist Reception, Thursday, Oct 29 from 7-9 PM

Portico Gallery is having its third “Mini-Artist Reception” for our current exhibition, ANALOG, Thursday, October 29th from 7-9PM. The first two went really well and they were lovely evenings. If you are wondering what you can expect at one of these Portico events, please take a look at the pictures in the link below. 
In the interest of safety, we have these small ticketed events to keep the numbers low so guests can remain 6 feet apart while socializing and enjoying art and good company. This reception will have a total of 16 people or less for the entire evening. ( you do not have to stay the entire time, but as there are not many places to go, many people do) This event is free but you need to reserve a ticket at the link below. I hope to see you on the 29th. As we will be socializing outdoors please dress for a lovely October evening

The Music Ritual, an Artist Talk with Jodi Beder

The Music Ritual, an Artist Talk with Jodi Beder
February 7, 1:00 – 2:30 PM on Zoom
(Scroll down for Zoom information)Please join the Portico Gallery for an artist talk with our friend and colleague Jodi Beder. We are honored to have Jodi as part of our “All Artists Talk Series” sponsored by Studio 3807 Contemporary Apartments in Brentwood MD.”When I started playing on the porch last March, I had no idea of anything except that I needed to do it every day, at the same time. Playing on the porch regularly, without question, however exhausted or confused or angry, has made this year one large performance piece embracing our street and garden, friends and neighbors, my parents, a crazy procession of composers and performers of the past, celebrating what melody, harmony, and rhythm are, and what they do.Music is itself ritual, serving as inner meditation and communal experience, all beyond words. Especially for the performer, it is muscle and neuron and breath and blood. For a cellist, also wood, metal, and hair, vibrating volumes of space. In performing for an audience, we are constantly dealing with ego and desire, anxiety and love. All the more to talk about in this year’s regime of pandemic and politics.”Jodi Beder
