January 2018 in the Galleries at A&M2 – Wilkins

Artists & Makers Studios 2 Presents
The Figure as Still Life – with Pooja Campbell
Intuitive Painting
with Christina Hibbard

(Rockville, MD) – Artists & Makers Studios 2 on Wilkins Avenue in Rockville will present two exhibits in the main galleries for the month of January along with artists’ open studios. “The Figure as Still Life” with Pooja Campbell will fill the main gallery. Campbell has been drawn to the nude as a subject since the start of her career. Her figures cohabitate in a world filled with nature and color – the subtleties, complexities, the curves and arches of the body are very like the forms and lines you would find in the natural world. She approaches painting the body as she might approach painting a floral still life. With line and form as structural guidelines, Campbell sorts through the internal dialogue she has about the realities of life, the truth in meditation, and her place in nature. In her work she wants to bring awareness to the beauty and vulnerability of the human form within the context of nature. “Intuitive Painting” with Christina Hibbard’s bold abstracts are featured in the Merge Gallery. As an intuitive painter, her goal is to play and experiment with layers and ultimately create a product that is strong in color, line, and overall composition. Hibbard’s Intuitive Painting series highlights this tactile and emotional painting process. “Genres” with Anthony B. Williams of The Montgomery County Camera Club shows in the hallway gallery, along with a FireClay Pop-Up Gallery and Holiday Market Sale on the 3rd floor, and Gallery 209 on the second floor, as Arthur Harrison adds acoustic ambience with theremin music in the lounge. Resident artists’ open studios throughout the buildings will round out the evening.
