An amalgam of colors, textures and shapes make their way to Arts/Harmony Hall Regional Center in The Spirit Within – a vivid compilation of mixed media work by Ulysses Marshall. Inspired by the stories of his mother and grandmother (Momma Joe and Momma Gussie), Ulysses instinctively uses various materials to compose images depicting the history and culture of African Americans.

A Georgia native, Marshall originally trained as a sociologist and later received his Masters in painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. His work has been exhibited at the Tubman African American Museum, The Corcoran Gallery of Art and the National Vietnam Veterans Museum among many others. He can also be found in numerous public and private collections throughout the country. This is Marshall’s first time at Arts/Harmony hall.

Gallery Hours:

  • Monday – Friday: 8:30am to 8pm
  • Saturday: 10am to 4pm
  • Sunday: 10am to 2pm

Arts/Harmony Hall Regional Center is located at 10701 Livingston Road Fort Washington, MD.
