Hosted at the Brentwood Arts Exchange in the Gateway Arts District for the first time, the 2010 Prince George’s County Annual Juried Exhibition, All Mixed Up, is a prominent showcase for artists living, working, and studying in Prince George’s County.

“Dynamic, layered, textured and a little weird.”  The juror uses these words describe herself as much as the works in All Mixed Up.  The words also come together as a surprisingly succinct way to sum up the Zeitgeist of contemporary art.  The title “All Mixed Up” proceeds to take on its own layers of meaning.  As it traverses from installation to abstraction, provocation to beauty, the show strikes a chord at the heart of what makes contemporary art so exciting.

Co-sponsored by The M-NCPPC Department of Parks & Recreation and the Prince George’s County Arts Council, All Mixed Up is also a bold reminder of the role Prince George’s County increasingly plays at the forefront of the region’s art community.  It is nationally prominent and emerging artists.  It is raw and refined, traditional as well as edgy, challenging and also affirming.
