Saving Cordially Invited II Faves

Make Studio is excited to bring back Cordially Invited, our annual invitational exhibition and a showcase of artists working at progressive art centers (aka art centers for people with disabilities) worldwide! This year’s celebration is bigger and better, as it’s part of our extended 10th anniversary celebration.

A couple of the Make Studio program artists selected their faves from this year’s show to highlight, as we prepare to open the show (in our gallery, online, and at eight pop-up venues in Baltimore) tomorrow.

I like how the merry-go-round has various creatures along with the usual horses, and appreciate the details of their features. I love the color palette, especially the purple clouds on the sky! The ocean view in the background reminds me of being on a beach and I am curious to know what this place is.




I like Joshua Albarran’s painting “Star Trek”.

I’m a fan of Star Trek, and this work celebrates the 50th year of Star Trek in which it was created by the late Gene Roddenberry. It all started from 60’s, the first pilot “The Cage” and the second pilot “Where No Man Has Gone Before”. I think he did a good job on portraying the characters and it reminds me of cosplaying as Captain James T. Kirk of the Starship Enterprise at Comic con and Art in the Round at American Visionary Art Museum.



Aimee and Jerry, along with the rest of the Make Studio artists, have their own artwork on display in the central Cordially Invited exhibition in our gallery, as well as at the pop-up venues.

You can follow along with all of the Cordially Invited II events here and here.
