Denee Barr Art News and More

Ellicott City, MD – Art MD 2008 is open at the Howard County Center for the Arts in Ellicott City. The Howard County Arts Council’s biennial juried exhibit features works by 48 artists residing in Maryland or surrounding regions within a 100-mile radius of the Center’s location in Ellicott City.

Juror Dr. Lesley King-Hammond, Graduate Dean, Emeritus, Director Center for Race and Culture at Maryland Institute College of Art selected works from approximately 360 images submitted by 132 artists. Selected artists include: James Adkins, Joan Bevelaqua, Bruce Blum, Nicole Buckingham, Winnie Coggins, Aline Feldman, Nancy Linden, Diana Marta, Chad Marth, Heidi Praff, Ron van Delden, Sarah Wegner, and Stan Wenocur.

ART MD 2008 is the eighteenth multi-media statewide juried exhibit sponsored by the Howard County Arts Council. The exhibit began in 1984 as Maryland’s Best, which was an annual show through 1989 open to all Maryland artists. In 1990, when the show became a biennial, its name was changed to ART MD. Since the Baltimore Museum of Art ended its Maryland biennial exhibits in the early 1990s, ART MD has been a premier juried showcase for artists in the region. In 2000, ART MD expanded to include Delaware and Southeastern Pennsylvania in addition to Maryland, Virginia, and Washington D.C.

An exhibit reception will be held at the Center in conjunction with the Howard County Arts Council’s Annual Open House and Holiday Sale on the evening of December 5 from 6-8PM. At 6:30PM, Dr. Lesley King-Hammond will make brief remarks about ART MD 2008 and announce her juror’s awards. A minimum of $1,000 will be awarded.

HCCA’s resident artists and organizations will open their studios to the public from 7-8PM. The Holiday Sale portion of the event runs for an extended period from 6PM until 9PM and features affordably priced fine arts and crafts by local artisans. The reception, open house, and holiday sale are free and open to the public. Light refreshments and music will be provided.

Art MD 2008 will be on display through December 12, 2008. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday 10AM – 8PM, Saturday 10AM – 4PM, and Sunday 12-4PM. To learn more about this exhibit and other HCCA programs call 410-313-ARTS.
