[INTERVIEW] “The Gold Mines Gold Mind” Art Gallery

The city of Baltimore have numerous gems discovered and undiscovered . Those gems include music , food , style ,and a diverse platter of culture that only a multicultured palette can taste . The veins and arteries of the city travels for miles as they create a heartbeat for the city . One of those veins reside at 823 East Baltimore Street in the downtown district of Baltimore City simply titled “The Sand Gallery” the acronym meaning Sell Art Not Drugs , this establishment has been a platform for up and coming as well as establish artist to showcase and sell their art work . With numerous themed events every week this establishment brings any and everybody together from fellow Baltimoreans to major artist stopping by before and after shows to see what the word is about . I’ve personally have been given the opportunity to sit down and talk to the owner and curator himself Milly Vanderwood to get his take on his rapid movement.

SO MAG: What things inspired your interest in the art community ?

Milly Vanderwood I was really intrigued by different creative processes and how so many things are art, when you think about it but I was interested in making visual artists just as important as music artists, actors and things of that nature! Most don’t get the recognition they deserve.

SO MAG:  How do you feel about the art community in your area ?

Milly Vanderwood: There’s different aspects to it, many different personalities etc. — Could be better, could be worse but i’m building my own “art community” and not trying to fit into someone else’s.

SO MAG: Explain your concept behind sell art not drugs..

Milly Vanderwood: My partner, B ‘The Change’ coined the phrase ‘Sell Art Not Drugs’ basically stating that we could be selling drugs… that’s the “easier” thing to get caught up in but we’re spending time being creative and selling art instead.. and that’s rare… I was the one who decided to turn that into an acronym and take away all the other letters except for the first ones of each word… luckily that broke down into SAND & here we are.. The SAND Gallery (Sell Art Not Drugs)

SO MAG: What kind of impact do you anticipate having on the art community ?

Milly Vanderwood: A very major one.. I mean, I’ve only been in the “visual arts world” for 2 1/2 – 3 years… and in that time I’ve.. 1. Gotten multiple works of art to celebrities.. 2. Managed a few visual artists.. 3. Opened an art gallery 4. Quit my job to be an entrepreneur.. in the “art world” & managed to make a decent living off of this without being able to draw or paint… & 5. I’m set to open an art gallery in Georgia next year!

SO MAG: What is your daily “dream routine” ?

Milly Vanderwood: Wake up… do whatever the f*ck I wanna do… simple. Everyday is different.. just another hustle!

SO MAG: If you could give advice to upcoming business moguls what would it be ?

Milly Vanderwood: Study the “business” that you wanna do.. don’t be afraid… make it happen… just do it… tomorrow ain’t promised!

SO MAG: Future plans for the sand gallery ?

Milly Vanderwood: Open the sequel in Georgia… continue to help artists and open up more worldwide!

SO MAG: Social media outlets or information how to participate in your venue ?
