Exhibition - Black and White

Friday, May 10, 2019 at 10:00am

Gaithersburg Arts Barn
311 Kent Square Rd,
Gaithersburg, MD 20878

Gaithersburg’s Arts on the Green presents “Black and White,” an exhibit featuring works in drawing, painting, photography, and sculpture in black and white, as juried by Arts Barn resident artist Jaree Donnelly. Viewing hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday, 1:30 to 5 p.m. The public is invited to meet the artists during a free Artists Reception on Sunday, April 7 from 1 to 3 p.m. Artists and guests will have an opportunity to enjoy an associated lecture and demonstration on Old Hollywood Style Portraits, presented by Donnelly. Registration, available online, is required for the lecture and demonstration.

Stripped of color, the high contract and boldness of black and white artwork is appealing to the eye, allowing the viewer to enjoy the beauty of the spatial, compositional and formal elements in the work as well as the emotional content that may be present. This exhibit features sculptures, glass items, and ceramics in the three-dimensional realm, with paintings, drawings, prints and photographs gracing the gallery walls.

Featured artists include Astrid Adler, Michael Adler, Judy Anderson, Mary Paul Barnaby, Michael Brown, Rosanne DeShelter, Jaree Donnelly, Nina Graybill, Don James, Michael Kuchinsky, Andrea McCluskey, Kirke Martin, Janet Matthews, Carol Moore, Laurie Wilson-Niswander, Linda Orenstein, Bobby Pestronk, Kelly Phebus, James Russell, Ruth Sentelle, Josh Shelley, Katherine Thomas, Pamela Townsend, James Vissari, Carol Walsh, Richard Wieblinger, and Ned Wolff.
