Current Exhibit – Passageways Studio Artists
The ten artists of Passageways Studio are featured in the current gallery exhibit which will run until October 11.Passageways came together in 1991 when a group of local artists found a large open space for rent in Riverdale, Maryland. The artists rolled up their collective sleeves and constructed ten airy studios – learning to make drywall partitions, and to do other construction tasks. Four of the early members are still active in Passageways.Passageways functions as a cooperative, providing: a congenial working environment for creative artists; an opportunity to interact, collaborate, and learn from colleagues; and an opportunity to show work with other members of the group. The various members work in painting, drawing, printmaking, mixed media, photography, stained-glass, sculpture, tapestry, quilting and fiber arts – wherever the muse directs.

Future Exhibit – “Figuratively Speaking”

Figuratively Speaking is the next gallery show. It will run from October 12 to January 2014.The exhibit will focus on artwork that illustrates the beauty of the human form in portraiture and figurative artwork.

Artist Group Shows

The Arts Committee primarily hosts juried art shows, but occasionally sponsors an artist group exhibit. Artist groups interested in such an exhibit need to read and complete the guidelines and requirements for exhibiting artwork and complete an Artist Group Entry Form.
