Front Window Featured Artist: Brittany Petersen

With an emphasis on the relationship between humans and the industrial world, Peterson creates small ceramic sculptures and installations using basic utilitarian shapes which she aggregates into sculptural vignettes, suggestive of paintings by Charles Sheeler as much as Giorgio Morandi. Paterson says, “The process of working with my hands allows me to discover the sublime phenomenon within industrial culture while arming against it.

In the Gallery

Currently featuring: Tadeusz Lapinski: Past and Present

After serving nearly four decades as a Professor of Art at the University of Maryland, Tad Lapinksi has left an indelible mark on the art community. In collaboration with the University of Maryland College Park Department of Art, the Brentwood Arts Exchange honors Mr. Lapinski’s contributions with a solo exhibition of his brightly colored abstract prints. We are humbled to be in the company of such prestigious institutions as the National Gallery of Art, the White House, Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art Tokyo, and Tianjin Museum in China, among many other museums throughout the world.
