Marian April Glebes is an emerging conceptual and mixed-media artist whose installations and sculptures are built of the remnants of elaborate processes that are futile or ridiculous, metaphoric, and temporary. Her works address issues of the urban/suburban environment, the character and power of the artist, and the use of site-specificity and the art object as a tool for social change. Glebes has exhibited in Baltimore, Washington DC, New York City, and Chicago galleries, including Heaven Gallery, Gallery Four, Salt Gallery, the Creative Alliance, Silberg Gallery at Goucher College, Area 405, MICA, Greenbelt Arts Center, Anne Arundel Community College, and the Center for Art, Design, and Visual Culture at UMBC. Having received her Bachelors of Fine Arts from the Maryland Institute, College of Art in 2004 and her Masters of Fine Art from the University of Maryland Baltimore County in 2009, Glebes has made her home in Baltimore, and currently facilitates development in the Station North Arts and Entertainment District. She curates for a number of Baltimore venues including Artscape, Transmodern Festival, and the Metro Gallery, is and co-curator of The Design Conversations, which received a Confetti Grant from the Baltimore Community Foundation in 2009. Glebes presently serves as Treasurer for the Baltimore D:center.
