Jellies inspired art

The moment visitors set foot in Jellies Invasion they are captivated, and often surprised, by the beauty of the jellies. Their vibrant colors and pulsing movements are magnificent, and leave people memorized and maybe even inspired.

With this in mind we invited members from Hamilton Art Gallery, a small gallery located on Hamilton Lauraville Main Street in North East Baltimore City, in to see the Jellies earlier this fall. The artists spent time admiring our “living lava lamps” and indeed went home inspired. Since that visit the members of Hamilton Art created an entire collection of jellies artwork that includes photography, paintings, and more. Their work will be on display at the gallery beginning January 8th.

Hamilton-Lauraville Main Street, Inc. will host an opening event at Hamilton Gallery on Friday, January 8, 2010 from 6-9 p.m. Representatives from the National Aquarium will be on hand to share information about Jellies Invasion and the artists will be exhibiting their work in the galleries, and in local restaurants and storefronts. The artwork will be on display throughout the month of January. Click here for more details.

Jellies make for interesting art

Jack Cover, the Aquarium’s general curator of fishes and rainforest exhibits, refers to jellies as living  lava lamps. Many exhibits around the country show jellies as living art.  Visitors see them as majestic and mesmerizing. When visiting our new Jellies Invasion exhibit, one local reporter referred to them as being “other-wordly.”
