The Highlandtown Gallery opened in September 2013 and is a crown jewel in the Highlandtown Arts District. “What makes this gallery unique,” says owner Felicia Zannino-Baker, “is the combination of three galleries in one building. It’s a tremendous dose of eye candy. You can find many forms of art in one place – we have paintings, encaustics, photography, jewelry, originals on paper or canvas, mosaics, sculpture, glass.”
A recent group exhibition was “The Mosaic Show,” and currently there’s a group nude show, “Nudes / Erotica / Exotic Women,” running through August.
Housed within the Highlandtown Gallery location is also Zwiebach Creations, run by artist Debbie Lynn Zwiebach. “Debbie Lynn’s work is just incredible,” says Zannino-Baker. Zwiebach’s art is available in the form of coloring books, cardboard and wooden puzzles, textile printing, handbags, jewelry, as well as prints on paper and canvas.
The Highlandtown Gallery is also part of the Highlandtown First Friday Art Walks, which will continue on Friday, August 3rd, September 7th, October 5th, November 2nd, and December 7th. These walks, from 5 to 9 pm, are part of a self-guided walking tour of the Highlandtown neighborhood shops, galleries, landmarks, and murals. Neighbors and visitors are encouraged to visit multiple sites and venues, many of which will feature light refreshments, special discounts, demonstrations, and events. t
