Decking The Halls Exhibit in Baltimore!

Present A Holiday Open Studio

BALTIMORE - Christmas just can´t be Christmas without the ones you love or the things you admire. Join T. Miller Gallery in collaboration with Oneeki Design Studio in a special Decking the Halls holiday exhibition featuring nationally known African American fine artists and doll artisans in an open studio preview and reception on Saturday, November 29 and Sunday, November 30, 2009, from 1 to 6 p.m. at Oneeki Design Studios located at 2103 North Charles Street in Baltimore´s historic Station North Arts District, and three blocks North from Penn Station. The exhibition will be open Saturdays and Sundays throughout the holiday season, including December 6 and 7; 13 and 14; and 19 and 20. The exhibition is free and open to the public.

Add to your personal collection of holiday bush favorites and keepsakes with one-of-a-kind Christmas ornaments and fine art collectables from many of the country´s most renowned fine artists and doll makers. Among the featured fine artists are works by Al Burts - pen and ink on paper, Shaunté Gates - oil on canvas and Greg Scott - oil and acrylic on canvas.

The doll and ornament artists take a sometimes serious, yet mostly whimsical flair to holiday ornaments in a wide array of artistic expressions in highly stylized, hand-crafted cloth dolls. Featured doll and ornament artists include Francine Haskins, Betty Baines, Adrienne McDonald, Tonia Mitchell, Daisy Carr, Joanna Banks, Carole Brothers, Shirley Taylor, Lynn Bechthold, Elerie Thomas, Tamara Thomas, Karl Graham, Paula Whaley, Gregg Scott, Marcella Welch and Patricia Colman-Cobb among others. In addition to picking their favorite ornament off the tree, patrons can also watch the master doll makers create and hand stitch new dolls and decorations.

In addition to the scheduled weekend hours, Oneeki Design Studio is open by appointment. For additional information on Decking the Halls, contact Anthony Miller at 301-807-6552 or Paula Whaley at 410-962-8592.
