Friday, April 20, 2018 at 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until Sunday, April 22, 2018
Enjoy a trip through the countryside, starting in Sandy Spring, visiting talented artists who work in a wide range of materials in Montgomery, Howard and Frederick counties. The Museum’s resident artists are members of Countryside Artisans of Maryland, a collaborative of about forty artists who open their studios three times a year.
Among the talented artists you will meet in Sandy Spring are Sue Garten, who fires glass on pure silver, copper, iron and steel; Eun Ju Lee, a silversmith who creates sculptural jewelry and small wall-hangings; Loretta Kaneshige, a jewelry artist who teaches workshops in metalsmithing and jewelry making from her Catch a Dream Studio; Belinda Lee Russell, a practicing poet, painter and picture bookmaker; Patricia Kessler, a printmaker who creates textiles dyed with natural materials. Our newest artists are painters Julie Smith and Barbara Abrams.
The artists that comprise Clay Works, the Museum’s resident pottery group include Karen Blynn, Jean Fletcher, Pamela Reid, and Robin Ziek. Each creates a unique style through multiple techniques including using the potter’s wheel, slab rolling, and hand-building.
