In part one, we visit NUDASHANK’s Conor Backman show, Gallery Four’s Lisa Dillin exhibition, and Sophia Jacob’s Harrison Tyler gallery take-over with writer, artist, curator, and hands-down, best-ever Baltimore tour guide, Michael Farley.

This week’s skippables: James Fuentes, Blackston, and Participant, Inc. Those we included: Simon Preston Gallery, Invisible Exports, and Joe Sheftel.
