I don't know why there are so many juried shows opening on the same weekend, and I'm not sure that I like the looks of them any more than any other summer group show. But I suppose if we can build a justice system on twelve impartial men, why not the art world? We'll start with the non-juried show.

Us and This
It's difficult not to like a good ceramic piece. Often ceramic art bridges a certain functionality and a more experimental aesthetic. Is that a bowl, you might find yourself asking of the work by Jeremy Sims, or is it something far more interesting? Opening at 5 p.m. Saturday, That That Gallery, 3901 Main St. hosts Us and This, a solo exhibition of Sims' work, at which you can ask just such a question. A portion of the proceeds from sales of the work will go to The Fund for Rebuilding Baltimore, a city dear to Sims and That That's director, Samantha McCurdy. More at facebook.com/thisisthatthat
