Artomatic@Frederick: Artwork Galore!

The long-awaited Artomatic@Frederick has opened in Historic Downtown Frederick.  The 27,000 sq. ft. former Frederick County School Board offices are filled to the brim, artwork galore, with various genres of art. From sculpture to paintings, quilts, pottery and photography, mixed media, watercolor… and more.

Throughout the 5 week exhibit, there will be live music on the top floor, where a stage provides a great venue for performances.  There are rooms for children’s projects (12-4 each Sunday), classes and workshops, family events, a fashion show, dance performances and photo events, and more.  Check the Artomatic website for details.

Select works from Artomatic@Frederick artists will be for sale each Sunday from 12-4 pm.

Each floor in the 4-story building has a lounge with furniture donated by the local Goodwill, and staged by Tim Coakley of Interior Foundations, a local Frederick company.  There is a concession on the first floor.  The admittance is free, but they gladly welcome donations:)

Ellen Baker, a member of the Artomatic Committee (all volunteers) took me on a tour of the first floor, pointing out the various aspects of the event. Steven Dobbin and Jennifer Finley are the directors. Several Hood College and Frederick Community College Students are volunteers on the event and have helped in every aspect, from planning, to the labor, to marketing and promotion, and acting as guides and general helpers.

I’ll be posting about this event again in the coming weeks…there is so much to see and experience, I’ll have to go back!

Enjoy, Karen

    I did not know that building used to be the Frederick County School Board, isn’t the new FCSB building on East St and South St now?

  2. Yes, all 27,000 square feet of it, which is now for sale. You’re right, the new school board building opened up in 2010 on South and East. There are also offices in use at the old Hayward Road building north of town.
