Jordan Bruns, as well as a Tribute Exhibit for Artist Kris Loya with her husband, Steve Loya - along with new work in Gallery 209 and Artists’ Open Studios. The May 7th opening will run from 11am – 3pm. Tadaima is a phrase that means “I’ve just come home now” in Japanese. J. Jordan Bruns, a long time Glen Echo Park resident artist and instructor has returned from a three-year sabbatical in Tokyo, Japan. “Tadaima” will highlight some of the work created during his sabbatical as well as work created since his return. In the Tribute Exhibit, “May Flowers” the exceptional life of Kris Loya will be celebrated with collaborative work that she and her husband Steve created before her diagnosis in October of 2021 with metastatic breast cancer, which would claim her life in December, just two days before her 41st birthday. Since then, Steve has been working hard to honor his beloved wife by celebrating her life and her work, and will continue to let the world know about Kris’ art - which remains a reflection of her kind, loving, and vibrant spirit.

  • June 2022 in the Galleries

    June 4, 2022 - June 22, 2022  
    Artists & Makers Studios, 11810 Parklawn Dr Suite 210, Rockville, MD 20852, USA

    (Rockville, MD) – Artists & Makers Studios on Parklawn Drive in Rockville will host the work of Robert LeMar in the exhibit “Crossing the Line”, the Resident Artists’ exhibit - along with new work in Gallery 209 and building-wide Open Studios. The June 4th opening will run from 11am – 3pm. LeMar’s interest in line has always been prevalent in his work. Three years of portrait sketching on the beaches of Chicago when he was a preteen developed his affinity to line. This was further bolstered by sketching portraits on the boardwalk of Ocean City Maryland in his twenties. Even though he was later encouraged by his art professors at The Maryland School of Art and Design in Silver Spring to not rely on drawing when painting, he still persisted in drawing on the canvas before applying paint. To this day drawing remains a major element in his painting technique. In his recent abstract work, as he crosses the line between realism and abstraction, he gives line an obviously dominant and defining role. The small works of Resident Artists in “10x10” will fill the Gallery Hall, and the Artists of Gallery 209 will feature new work in the large Gallery.

    205 South Summit Avenue, Gaithersburg, MD 20877-2315

    The Episcopal Church of the Ascension’s Equity and Justice Committee (AEJC) is offering a free screening of the critically acclaimed documentary “Crip Camp” on Monday, June 6, 2022, followed by an online group discussion of the film on Wednesday, June 8, 2022. The screening will be available both in-person at the Church and streamed on its Zoom Channel. The discussion is on Zoom only. The Church is located at 205 South Summit Avenue, Gaithersburg, MD 20877-2315.
    “Crip Camp” tells the story of a revolution that began at a summer camp for people with disabilities and how it inspired the film’s protagonists to become successful advocates for disability rights.
    The Academy Award-nominated documentary premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2020 where it won the Audience Award. Rolling Stone wrote, "this indispensable documentary defines what it means to call a movie 'inspiring.'" Former President and First Lady Barak and Michelle Obama are executive producers of the film.

    June 4, 2022 - June 22, 2022  
    Artists & Makers Studios, 11810 Parklawn Dr Suite 210, Rockville, MD 20852, USA

    (Rockville, MD) – Artists & Makers Studios on Parklawn Drive in Rockville will host the work of Robert LeMar in the exhibit “Crossing the Line”, the Resident Artists’ exhibit - along with new work in Gallery 209 and building-wide Open Studios. The June 4th opening will run from 11am – 3pm. LeMar’s interest in line has always been prevalent in his work. Three years of portrait sketching on the beaches of Chicago when he was a preteen developed his affinity to line. This was further bolstered by sketching portraits on the boardwalk of Ocean City Maryland in his twenties. Even though he was later encouraged by his art professors at The Maryland School of Art and Design in Silver Spring to not rely on drawing when painting, he still persisted in drawing on the canvas before applying paint. To this day drawing remains a major element in his painting technique. In his recent abstract work, as he crosses the line between realism and abstraction, he gives line an obviously dominant and defining role. The small works of Resident Artists in “10x10” will fill the Gallery Hall, and the Artists of Gallery 209 will feature new work in the large Gallery.

    Artists & Makers Studios, 11810 Parklawn Dr Suite 210, Rockville, MD 20852, USA

    (Rockville, MD) – Artists & Makers Studios on Parklawn Drive in Rockville will host the work of Robert LeMar in the exhibit “Crossing the Line”, the Resident Artists’ exhibit - along with new work in Gallery 209 and building-wide Open Studios. The June 4th opening will run from 11am – 3pm. LeMar’s interest in line has always been prevalent in his work. Three years of portrait sketching on the beaches of Chicago when he was a preteen developed his affinity to line. This was further bolstered by sketching portraits on the boardwalk of Ocean City Maryland in his twenties. Even though he was later encouraged by his art professors at The Maryland School of Art and Design in Silver Spring to not rely on drawing when painting, he still persisted in drawing on the canvas before applying paint. To this day drawing remains a major element in his painting technique. In his recent abstract work, as he crosses the line between realism and abstraction, he gives line an obviously dominant and defining role. The small works of Resident Artists in “10x10” will fill the Gallery Hall, and the Artists of Gallery 209 will feature new work in the large Gallery.

  • June 2022 in the Galleries

    June 4, 2022 - June 22, 2022  
    Artists & Makers Studios, 11810 Parklawn Dr Suite 210, Rockville, MD 20852, USA

    (Rockville, MD) – Artists & Makers Studios on Parklawn Drive in Rockville will host the work of Robert LeMar in the exhibit “Crossing the Line”, the Resident Artists’ exhibit - along with new work in Gallery 209 and building-wide Open Studios. The June 4th opening will run from 11am – 3pm. LeMar’s interest in line has always been prevalent in his work. Three years of portrait sketching on the beaches of Chicago when he was a preteen developed his affinity to line. This was further bolstered by sketching portraits on the boardwalk of Ocean City Maryland in his twenties. Even though he was later encouraged by his art professors at The Maryland School of Art and Design in Silver Spring to not rely on drawing when painting, he still persisted in drawing on the canvas before applying paint. To this day drawing remains a major element in his painting technique. In his recent abstract work, as he crosses the line between realism and abstraction, he gives line an obviously dominant and defining role. The small works of Resident Artists in “10x10” will fill the Gallery Hall, and the Artists of Gallery 209 will feature new work in the large Gallery.

  • June 2022 in the Galleries

    June 4, 2022 - June 22, 2022  
    Artists & Makers Studios, 11810 Parklawn Dr Suite 210, Rockville, MD 20852, USA

    (Rockville, MD) – Artists & Makers Studios on Parklawn Drive in Rockville will host the work of Robert LeMar in the exhibit “Crossing the Line”, the Resident Artists’ exhibit - along with new work in Gallery 209 and building-wide Open Studios. The June 4th opening will run from 11am – 3pm. LeMar’s interest in line has always been prevalent in his work. Three years of portrait sketching on the beaches of Chicago when he was a preteen developed his affinity to line. This was further bolstered by sketching portraits on the boardwalk of Ocean City Maryland in his twenties. Even though he was later encouraged by his art professors at The Maryland School of Art and Design in Silver Spring to not rely on drawing when painting, he still persisted in drawing on the canvas before applying paint. To this day drawing remains a major element in his painting technique. In his recent abstract work, as he crosses the line between realism and abstraction, he gives line an obviously dominant and defining role. The small works of Resident Artists in “10x10” will fill the Gallery Hall, and the Artists of Gallery 209 will feature new work in the large Gallery.
