Color Your Community

Fair Hill Shopping Center - Olney Winery prominent

On display February 7 – April 28, opening reception February 9

Artists Martha Spak and Suzanne Brennan Firstenberg will explore the interwoven quality of our Sandy Spring community through both two- and three-dimensional interpretation, inviting visitors to join them in creation of the art.

There will be abstract expressionist oil and acrylic paintings, colorful film panels, life-scale figurative sculptures, and photos from the local community on display. Additionally, community members and guests join with the artists in finishing a mural depicting Sandy Spring faces and places, forming the unifying center of this exhibit. Visitors are invited to add to the mural, in both color and content, to join in the dialogue of the communal form itself. This visual dialogue invites visitors to explore the artist that resides in each of us and illustrate their unique place in the Sandy Spring Community.

In preparation for this communal mural’s art form, we invite community members to contribute their own images to be incorporated into this visual montage of Sandy Spring.
