Artists & Makers Studios on Parklawn in Rockville will present three thought-provoking exhibits in three galleries for the month of May. Navigation/Immigration with Alonzo Davis, whose artworks are a take on early Micronesian navigation tools, and an exploration of the many modes of transport immigrants use while seeking sanctuary from war and oppression. Waterborne with Cindy Packard Richmond examines water in its infinite variations – placid or fierce – the artist is struck by how water affects what it touches, what lives beneath or floats above. This Ain’t Yo Mama’s Textiles with Melanye Coleman juxtaposes portraits of women who defy traditional gender stereotypes to show their boundary-defying beauty on fabric – a material that, like them, is strong yet soft, and as varied as the women portrayed.

Viewing hours:

  • Tuesday-Friday: 10am – 4pm
  • Saturdays: 10am – 4pm
  • Sundays/Mondays by chance or appointment.

Artists & Makers Studios is located at 11810 Parklawn Dr., Suite 210, Rockville, MD. For more information, visit artistsandmakersstudios.com.
