The Brentwood Arts Exchange is pleased to announce The Sky’s the Limit, the 2011 Prince George’s County Juried Exhibition. Photographic imagery is ubiquitous in nearly every aspect of our lives, from billboards, to cell phone videos, to keepsake albums, to Facebook profiles. It’s no coincidence that it is just as pervasive throughout contemporary art – even in media that are often thought of in stark contrast to traditional photography. The Sky’s the Limit presents a glimpse of the ways photography employs itself throughout the visual arts, here and now. Juried by Michael Platt, the exhibition presents the best photo-inclusive art by artists who live, work, or study in Prince George’s County. Hosted in the Gateway Arts District for the second time, this Prince George’s County Juried Exhibition is our chance to show off the important contributions that artists in our county make to contemporary art.

Michael B. Platt is a 2007 recipient of the prestigious Franz and Virginia Bader Fund Grant. Long known as a printmaker, Platt now prefers the more encompassing designation, “imagemaker.” His artwork recently has turned to digital imagery and book art that combines image and poetry-fragments, allowing us glimpses of ourselves. He continues to create artwork that centers on figurative explorations of life’s survivors, the marginalized, referencing history and circumstance in the rites, rituals and expressions of our human condition. Platt has exhibited nationally and internationally. His recent one-person shows include In Transit, International Visions-The Gallery, Washington, DC, and Just Above Water, at the University of Maryland. He has artwork in the permanent collection of the Corcoran Museum; the Smithsonian Museum of American Art; the Library of Congress, the Schomburg Research Center in Black Culture of the New York Public Library; the Yale University Art Gallery; the Brown University Rockefeller Library Harris Poetry Collection; the David C. Driskell Center of the University of Maryland, and the Hampton University Art Museum.
