"Baltimore's Best Art Sale"—Baltimore Magazine

Meet printers, gallerists, and BMA Curators while browsing limited editions, drawings, single prints, and photographs at the Baltimore Contemporary Print Fair. More than 20 printers and gallerists from across the country gather for an intimate showcase of limited editions, multi-part portfolios, and more by established and emerging artists. Connoisseurs, new collectors, and art enthusiasts alike are welcome to learn more about the art, artists, and printmaking techniques.

The Baltimore Contemporary Print Fair is presented every two years by the BMA’s Print, Drawing & Photograph Society (PDPS). For more information about PDPS events, call 443-573-1789. Proceeds from the Print Fair support contemporary acquisitions for the BMA’s collection of works on paper.
