Summit Financial of Hunt Valley again sponsored The Arc Baltimore’s 15th Annual Art in the Round Exhibit and Auction held at the Grand Lodge of Maryland. The Art in the Round exhibit and auction showcases the talent and artistry of individuals with developmental disabilities.
“We were very proud to participate in the outstanding accomplishments of these amazing, talented artists. This wonderful, sold-out event showcased over 200 submitted pieces. It was very gratifying to see the excitement and pride of these exceptional artists” said Summit Financial Founder and President, Thomas Graham.
“Art in the Round is one of The Arc’s premier annual events, with proceeds supporting future art activities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities including classes, workshops, and training programs,” explains The Arc Baltimore Executive Director Stephen H. Morgan. “Sixty percent of the proceeds from the silent auction go to the exhibiting artists.”
Art in the Round spotlights individuals with challenges by showcasing their art and their talent. Winning bids ranged from $50-$900 and buyers were excited to take home a coveted piece of art. A jury selected 80 paintings, drawings, watercolors, sculptures and ceramics from more than 200 submissions. Many of the artists and their families are in attendance.
