Baker Award Winning Artist, Ernest Kromah, will open his latest exhibition, The Legacy of an Icon at the Motor House Gallery on March 8, 2018. The Legacy of an Icon is an exhibition that gives the public an opportunity to interact with an exceptional artist’s body of work and his life.
Born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1939, Ernest Kromah has dedicated the majority of his life to nurturing the arts through his paintings, drawings and prints, and cultivating a foothold in the food industry in Baltimore. The Motor House will present photographs, paintings and mixed-media works of Ernest Kromah providing the public with snapshots of Ernest Kromah’s career and the Kromah Gallery he and his wife, Gail Kromah founded at 1203 Druid Hill Avenue in Baltimore City. This was one of the earliest community arts hubs and gallery. It supported and celebrated the work of many young artists throughout the city of Baltimore.
Alongside his vibrant paintings, The Motor House will also include documentary imagery highlighting Ernest Kromah’s impact on the arts in Baltimore from 1978 to present. The Motor House is very pleased to recognize and support the work of Ernest and Gail Kromah as community arts activists.
