Resident Artists

Resident Artists

The Patterson Residency Program provides a highly visible, intense and creative environment for the production of artwork in all media. Attracting artists from around Baltimore and the nation, the program is located at The Patterson, a historic former movie theater converted into a vibrant, community-based art center.

Meet The Artists:

Cameron Shojaei

Cameron Shojaei considers his legacy as an artist is to bring representational, traditional, Rubenesque figure painting back to the main stage of high art and push out fine art wallpaper and slash-and-burn painting techniques that dominate today's contemporary galleries.

Paul Rucker

Paul Rucker is a visual artist, composer, and musician who combines media, often integrating live performance, sound, original compositions, and visual art. His work is the product of a rich interactive process, through which he investigates community impacts, human rights issues, historical research, and basic human emotions surrounding a subject.

Alice Gadzinski

Alice Gadzinski’s sculptural work is an examination of authenticity, exploring ideas of taste and the pressures of social performance and examining the present through past "camp" iconographies. Gadzinski earned her MFA in Sculpture from Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), and her BFA in Photography from the Kendall College of Art and Design.

Amy Sherald

In past years Amy Sherald's work has been autobiographical but has changed in response to her move to Baltimore, MD and has taken on a social context with a allegorical twist.

Adam Davies

Adam Davies’s unmanipulated photographs explore points of intersection between architecture and the natural world. He received an EdM from Harvard University and a MFA from Carnegie Mellon University.

Amanda Fiore

Amanda is a novelist and short story writer whose fiction explores the complexity of everyday moments, where representations of class, culture, self, and happiness collide.

Jerry Allen Gilmore

Jerry Allen Gilmore’s most recent work reflects his realization that life’s every movement possesses a humorous bend in the river, where “one may be given aid by animals, magicians and shamans or menaced by devils, clowns and bumble bees. Where you go depends upon where you have been, and where you can go depends upon what you can imagine.”

Tiffany Lange

Tiffany Lange is an artist, designer, and illustrator. From puppetry to children’s book illustration, the intent of her art is to pause the commotion of everyday life and guide the audience toward a lighthearted sensory experience. She employs imagery that is introspective and whimsical—generating curiosity with rich hues, dynamic characters, and intriguing exaggerations of dimension. Lange is Creative Director at Charm City Puppets and the marketing agency Giant Sprout Creative, LLC.
