Weise Gallery

The Frieda O. Weise Gallery is located on the first floor of the Health Sciences and Human Services Library (HSHSL) at University of Maryland, Baltimore.  Since its opening in 2003, the gallery has hosted both individual and group shows featuring local and national artists.  Mediums include photographs, paintings, drawings, sculptures, mixed media pieces, and traveling exhibits from institutions such as the National Library of Medicine, Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History, and the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.  Baltimore schools have also collaborated with the HSHSL to show student artwork in the Weise Gallery.

A vibrant presence in downtown Baltimore, the gallery is located just steps inside the Library’s front entrance. Large, floor-to-ceiling windows facing east onto Greene Street flood the gallery with natural light and make it visible to passersby. The gallery features a 1,700 square-foot open area surrounded by 93 linear feet of vertical display space, much of it spanning across a dramatic curved wall. The high ceilings and ample display space allow for showcasing large-scale works. The walls are equipped with a professional-quality, adjustable wire hanging system with hooks that works for all sizes.

The gallery also includes a large, free-standing, 37 square-foot wedge-shaped plinth to exhibit large sculptural pieces and other three-dimensional works.  Glass display cases in and near the gallery are available to display smaller art objects, such as sculpture, jewelry, and pottery.

Opening receptions are welcome in the Weise Gallery and the adjoining Tower Lounge.
