Two new exhibits at Howard County Arts Council

The Howard County Arts Council is pleased to announce two new exhibits, opening on May 3, 2019: Resident Visual Artists Exhibit 2019 and No Boundaries.                                                                                                   

In its 35th year at the Arts Council, Resident Visual Artists Exhibit 2019 features recent work created by artists with studios at the Center for the Arts: James Adkins, Joan Bevelaqua, Han Jeon, Myungsook Ryu Kim, Art Landerman, Diana Marta, Brendan Nass, Joyce Ritter, Jereme Scott, Alice St. Germain-Gray, Andrei Trach, Jamie Travers, Mary Jo Tydlacka, and David Zuccarini. The artists work in a variety of media including oil and watercolor painting, drawing, fiber art, and glass bead-making. 

In partnership with Howard County Recreation and Parks’ Department of Therapeutic Recreation and Inclusion Services, No Boundaries showcases work by youth and adult artists with developmental disabilities, created in the Exploring Art and Focus on Art programs offered by the Department of Therapeutic Recreation and Inclusion Services. In these programs, youth and adults with developmental disabilities have the opportunity to explore a variety of media, styles, and methods of creating art. 

A free public reception will be held on Friday, May 10 from 6–8pm. The Arts Council’s resident artists will also open their studios to visitors from 7–8pm that evening. Both exhibits run through June 14, 2019.
