That’s a Wrap | Farewell Reception
Saturday, January 21 • 3-5pm
@ Crystal Moll Gallery

Crystal Moll Gallery in Federal Hill is hosting its final exhibition ‘That’s a Wrap”. This group show includes the works of 9 artists. Throughout the past 13 years, the gallery has showcased hundreds of artists’ works. Crystal’s Baltimore’s plein air works are included in this exhibition. This gallery will be closing its doors on Jan. 21, 2023.

Starting February, fans of Crystal Moll can find her work on display and for sale at a new location @ 248 South Conklin Street. This places her in Highlandtown’s Art District which hosts ‘First Friday Art Walks’. Crystal will be open for the first art walk of 2023 on February 4th. Much of the focus of the gallery will be on Crystal’s work who will continue to paint the neighborhoods of Baltimore and the landscapes of Maryland’s Eastern Shore. She will continue to accept commissioned work.

The current exhibition titled “That’s a Wrap” will run through January 21st in Federal Hill. In addition to Moll, participating artists are Bennett Vadnais, Beth Bathe, Deborah Kommalan, Carol Lee Thompson, Tim Kelly, Kathy Daywalt, Vlad Duch and Stephanie Marzella.

“Crystal Moll Gallery has brought artists and collectors together for more than 13 years, and I treasure what it has meant to the art community that has embraced it since its inception,” said Moll, voted Baltimore’s top artist in a recent Baltimore Magazine readers’ poll. “This gallery will always hold a special place in my heart.”

The exhibition and gallery will close on Jan. 21st., with a farewell reception from 3-5 p.m. Everyone, who has supported Crystal Moll Gallery since it opened in Dec. 2009, is invited to visit over the next month and attend the closing reception at Baltimore’s most charming art venue, located at 1030 S. Charles St., in Federal Hill.

Moll, who has used Baltimore as most of her paintings subjects for over 35 years, initially opened the gallery when a shop on South Charles Street closed and she was asked by the landlord to hang a few of her paintings so the unoccupied space did not look empty over the holidays. From there, Crystal Moll Gallery, voted among the best in Baltimore in 8 readers’ polls from Baltimore Magazine, was born.

“We (Day Watts the Gallery Manager and I) are so grateful for the longtime support from patrons, artists and collectors, including all of those who have come through our doors and trusted us to frame their favorite artwork,” Moll said. “It’s been such a team effort to curate all the shows that we’ve enjoyed sharing with the community. I look forward to welcoming everyone for this final show that includes nine cherished painters.” We are and will continue to offer custom framing.
