It is a challenge, standing on the threshold of the past, present, and future. Reality is an elusive commodity, created by each one of us, which feeds our perspective on everything we do. We are forever testing our willingness to step into the unknown.
The inspiration for Minas Konsolas’ work is the environment where he lives and the places he has visited, along with their history, myths, poetry and music. He creates his images by scraping and smearing paint onto his canvasses, alternately adding and eliminating in multiple layers. Minas employs intuition and a technical knowledge of his medium, with both coming together to guide him through his process of working.
Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower is open every Saturday from 11am to 4pm. Guests have an opportunity to view artwork throughout the building, including 15 floors of working artist studios and special exhibits. Visitors can also learn more about the historical building and participate in a tour of the clock room ($5).

By producing large-scale events such as Light City, Artscape and the Baltimore Book Festival, and providing funding and support to artists, arts programs and organizations across the city, BOPA’s goal is to make Baltimore a more vibrant and creative city.
