Denee Barr Art News and More

40 Great Years and More!

The Columbia Foundation, in collaboration with The Artist’s Gallery, The Columbia Archives and LakeSide Coffee and Café, hosts “40 Great Years and More!”, an exhibit of works by local photographer Denee Barr and visual artist Alice Webb in the Foundation office at the American Cities Building, 10227 Wincopin Circle in Columbia, Maryland. The opening reception will be held Friday, June 8 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. and is part of The Columbia Festival of the Arts’ “Artworks” at LakeFest. Denee Barr is the recipient of a 2003 Maryland State Arts Council Individual Artist Award Grant for artistic excellence in photography. She studied film, painting, printmaking and papermaking at the University of Maryland and frequently combines these media to create photo-based works. Alice Webb works in watercolors, oils and etching and teaches watercolor painting in her Ellicott City home. Her artistry has been featured on the cover of the Baltimore Sun “Hometown Guides” for the local Maryland counties. “40 Great Years and More!” features the artists’ mixed media photographs, watercolors, etchings and giclee prints of landscapes throughout Howard County. Begun in conjunction with the Columbia Festival of the Arts’ LakeFest, the exhibit will be open from 10:00 to 5:00 Monday through Friday for the remainder of the year. Founded in 1969, the Columbia Foundation has awarded nearly $9 million in grants to Howard County nonprofit organizations delivering human service, arts and cultural, educational and civic programs. Money for the grant programs comes primarily from income generated by the Foundation’s endowment supported by over 200 funds established by Howard County businesses, families and individuals.
