Frederick, MD – The Frederick Arts Council announces a new exhibition featuring the work of Baltimore artist Lisa Dillin on view at the Frederick Arts Council Art Center 5 E. 2nd Street, Frederick MD.

The exhibition will run from May 7 to August 28, 2021.

The exhibition ‘Sorry we missed you’ features nine sculptures and a sound piece which focus on the complicated aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Sorry we missed you makes tangible the emotional quality of the sustained isolation that characterized this time. Sorry we missed you extends an open hand to the viewer and whispers “I understand how you feel, I’m feeling that way too. I am right alongside you, feeling the vacancy of this moment and waiting for the day when we are together again –  rebuilding.”

Dillin is an interdisciplinary Baltimore-based artist working primarily in sculpture and participatory art practices. Dillin earned her BFA in photography from Atlanta College of Art in 1998 and her MFA in sculpture from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2006. Her work has been selected for exhibition at various venues including the Baltimore Museum of Art and The Contemporary Museum in Baltimore, MD, Hamiltonian Gallery and Washington Project for the Arts, in Washington, D.C. Honors include 2014 and 2017 MSAC Individual Artist awards in sculpture and selection as a Sondheim Prize Finalist in 2012. To learn more visit
