Art at miXt

Local Art & Universal Appeal

Since its inception in 2001, the 2-mile corridor along Route 1 known as the Gateway Arts District has developed into a rejuvenated enclave full of eclectic shops, galleries, restaurants, and entertainment. We’re excited to provide local artists a place to showcase their work and a community that supports them through exhibits, markets, events, and advertising.

He has lived in Laurel, MD since 1975, received his B.F.A. from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 1995, and has had a studio in Howard County since the late 1990’s, currently his studio is at the Howard County Center for the Arts.

The Corner Space

Also featuring Andrei Trach

Andrei Trach expresses moods and ideas through color, texture, and movement. He is motivated by the tactile nature of thick, action-filled paint strokes. Andrei describes his work as a visceral response and expression to the world around him.

miXt Food Hall’s rotating art exhibition spaces have an open call for local artists to submit their work for consideration. Please contact John Paradiso, Curator of Programs at Portico Gallery & Studios, at and include a link to your website.
