Akemi Maegawa (b. Tsu, Japan) creates simple works with dual meanings. Her work, which reveals a specialization in ceramics and sculpture, questions the world in which we live and makes political, social, and economic statements, often by combining disparate elements.

Jackie Hoysted (b. Dublin, Ireland) is a multi-media artist living and working in Bethesda, Maryland. She is interested in creating awareness of social and political issues that have personal significance to her such as identity, health, feminism, economy and religion. Depending on the project, she articulates her thoughts through paintings, sculpture, photography, videography, performance and installation utilizing both traditional and non-traditional materials.

Betty Mae Kramer Gallery and Music Room at Silver Spring Civic Building is located at One Veterans Place, Silver Spring, MD.
