About This Event
Art Maryland 2012, a biennial, juried multi-media exhibit, opens October 26 at the Howard County Center for the Arts. The exhibit features work selected from nearly 470 entries submitted by 169 artists working in a wide variety of styles and mediums.
Juror Philippa Hughes, Founder and Chief Creative Contrarian of the Pink Line Project in Washington, DC, chose work with a clean, contemporary aesthetic, gravitating to photography and sculpture. Selected artists include: Fran Abrams, Ralph Baney, Kyle Bauer, Ronald Brown, Warren Chambers, Ed Charest, Travis Childers, Sara Dittrich, Annie Farrar, Karen Lynn Gray, Zachary Handler, Courtnee Hawkins, Eric Johnson, Penny Knobel-Besa, Cheryl MacLean, Hyeseung Marriage-Song, Diana Marta, Shelley Meredith-Cooper, Lindsay Rowinski, Daniel Rozmiarek, Charles Sessoms, Anthony Stellaccio, Robert Tennenbaum, Kristoffer Triplaar, Regina Tumasella, John Viles, Sarah Wegner, and Elizabeth Whiteley.
Art Maryland 2012 is the eighteenth multi-media statewide juried exhibit sponsored by the Howard County Arts Council. The exhibit began in 1984 as Maryland’s Best, an annual show running through 1989 and open to all Maryland artists. In 1990, when the show became a biennial, its name was changed to Art Maryland. Since the Baltimore Museum of Art ended its Maryland biennial exhibits in the early 1990s, Art Maryland has been a premier juried showcase for the region’s artists. In 2000, Art Maryland expanded to include Delaware and Southeastern Pennsylvania in addition to Maryland, Virginia, and Washington D.C.
Art Maryland 2012 will be open from October 26 through December 14, 2012. A reception will be held on Friday, October 26 from 6-8PM, as part of National Arts and Humanities Month and will include remarks and the presentation of $1500 in juror’s awards by Ms. Hughes.
Gallery hours are Monday through Friday 10AM-8PM, Saturday 10AM-4PM, and Sunday 12-4PM. To learn more about HCAC programs and exhibits, call 410-313-ARTS (2787) or visit www.hocoarts.org.
