Featured in the Thaler Gallery:
Maryland Federation of Art, all-media members juried show. The Maryland Federation of Art (MFA) celebrates its 51st anniversary as a volunteer-based nonprofit visual arts organization dedicated to promoting awareness, appreciation, and support of artists through community outreach, education and exhibition opportunities to artists at all levels. The MFA was founded in 1963 by U.S. Naval Commander Charles Holley, Mrs. Margaret (Farmer) Spann, and a group of dedicated Annapolis-area artists interested in professional development and exhibition opportunities for Maryland’s creative community. The organization continues as Maryland’s oldest artist-run organization. As a result of their dedication, Circle Gallery was founded in 1968 and continues as Annapolis’ oldest art gallery. MFA is continually growing and work to now support current living artists across the country.
Featured in the Galleria:
"Out of the Blue" group show. All media, 2D + 3D. Exhibit judge: Michel Demanche.
In Studio E:
Kerry Doran is a Maryland artist, whose work includes both fine art and illustration. She earned a BFA in Illustration from Savannah College of Art & Design. Prior to attending SCAD, she majored in art at Montgomery College. In her fine art pieces, she explores realism, abstract-expressionism, and sometimes surrealism. Within the illustration sphere, she prefers working in conceptual, literal, narrative, and representational styles.
She works with most forms of traditional media. Lately, she has also been exploring mixed-media; using mediums that complement each other to convey a mood, or message.
In the Spotlight Gallery:
"In Lehman's Terms", artwork by Don & Gwen Lehman.
Don will exhibit his photographs, inspired by the way light enters a room and creates patterns, as well as painted panels representing light and shadow. Gwen will exhibit her paintings defined by her feelings of what is emerging as she paints using brushes, brayers, sponges, wadded paper towels, sprayed water, and ink. Sales from this exhibit will benefit the “Friends of Gwen Freeman Lehman Scholarship Fund” awarded annually to Stephen Decatur High School theatre students pursuing advanced education in the dramatic arts.
In the Artisan Showcase:
Svetlana McCoy-Rusanova. In creating jewelry, Svetlana draws inspiration from the beauty and energy of natural stones and other natural materials (amber, pearls, etc.), as well as from her experience as a gardener and flower arranger. Svetlana uses the best that Nature has to offer and transforms it into something useful, (multi)functional, and even more beautiful.
