Baltimore arts briefs: July 6

Last chance to see War of 1812 exhibit

Saturday is the last chance to see the exhibition, “Honoring 1812,” at the Crystal Moll Gallery (1030 South Charles St., Baltimore).

The exhibition showcases paintings, prints and photographs that commemorate the War of 1812. This includes aerial views of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, ships of that era and scenes from Fort McHenry. The exhibit has been shown both at the Crystal Moll Gallery and the World Trade Center during the celebrations.

While the Crystal Moll Gallery mainly houses the artwork of Crystal Moll, who generally paints scenes from Baltimore as her subject, she also houses several different exhibitions.

The exhibition is free and is open Wednesday to Saturday from noon-6 p.m. For more information, visit crystalmollgallery.com.

The Kinsey Sicks perform their show “Electile Dysfunction: Kinsey Sicks for President,” at Clementine at Creative Alliance (3134 Eastern Ave., Baltimore) on July 14 at 7 and 9 p.m.

The show is the Kinsey Sicks’ campaign to become the first Dragapella Beautyshop Quartet to be elected President of the United States. According to their website, the gals are taking “(a)back America by out-pandering, out-conspiracy theorizing, and out-outlandishing even the most cynical of the current crop of Presidential candidates.”

Tickets are $20-25 and can be purchased at creativealliance.org. For more information, visit kinseysicks.com.

Deaf leather group to hold contests

The International Deaf Leather contest is July 12-15 at the Tremont Plaza Hotel (222 St. Paul Place) in Baltimore.

The event’s aim is to connect the deaf and hearing leather communities, while increase networking between the deaf, SM and fetish communities. The contest will include interviews, costume judging and personality contests as people compete for Ms. Deaf Leather, Mr. Deaf Leather and Deaf Leatherboy titles. Though it is a celebration of the deaf leather community, everyone is welcome. The group is LGBT inclusive.

Tickets for the contests are $35, but packages are available that include admission to workshops and cocktail parties. For more information, visit internationaldeafleather.org.
