About Ten Year Anniversary
On November 12, 2004, Jordan Faye Block opened her first commercial gallery in Baltimore, it opened with an exhibition of two artists Robert Sparrow Jones & Jim Condron. Ms. Block ran Gallery Imperato for the next two years: curating 15 exhibitions there and successfully graduating with her Master's of Fine Arts from MICA in 2005. In November of 2006, Jordan Faye Contemporary was founded. Now 100 exhibitions from that very first one have been curated by Jordan in Baltimore; she's taken the gallery to 7 international art fairs in the last 3 years, and while the gallery has moved a few times over the last 8 years, they've continually been expanding their programming and raising the bar in Baltimore and in major cities across the country. Last month she and her assistant director, Willa Frazer, founded a new program for emerging artists; moving both Jordan Faye Contemporary and this new program THRIVE into a 3300 square foot exhibition center on the top floor of the Maryland Art Place Building in the heart of the Bromo Arts District. This exhibition highlights a selection of artists that Jordan has worked with over the last ten years. Artists include Robert Sparrow Jones, Kate MacKinnon, Lori Larusso, James Rieck, David Page, Christine Bailey, Jenee Mateer, Lawrence Cromwell, Donald Edwards, Lisa Dillin, Lat Naylor, Scott Ponemone, Edie Nadelhaft and Magnolia Laurie.
Small Wonders 8th Edition continues Jordan Faye Contemporary's holiday exhibition tradition which began in 2006. The 2014 line-up includes Lori Larusso, Geraldine Bullock, Jim Doran, Steve Parke, Willa Frazer, Elizabeth Gambino, Sanzi Kermes & Maureen Farrell.
