Opening Reception and Artist Talk: Sunday, March 18 from 3pm to 5pm

The UMUC Arts Program at University of Maryland University College (UMUC) invites you to explore the art of internationally known artists Ed Clark (New York, New York), Richard W. Franklin (Bowie, Maryland), and the late Kenneth Young (Washington, DC). Clark, Franklin, and Young have devoted their artistic lives to creating abstract art that carries a message of awareness and intrigue through the use of math, astrology, and symbols.

Each artist has approached abstract art in a different way, but the style of each of them is structurally complex. This exhibition explores their different approaches to abstraction with the goal of unveiling the language within their work. The exhibition catalog will include an essay by art historian Virginia Adams, who earned her PhD from the University of Maryland, College Park.


  • Daily: 9am to 9pm
