Artists & Makers Studios on Parklawn Drive and Wilkins Avenue in Rockville are featuring five new exhibits for the month of January at two locations. A&M1 Parklawn will host solo exhibits for artists Wayson R. Jones with Elementals – considering the landscape through thickly textured paintings, Sharon Fox-Mould’s Angels and Abstracts – informed by her Jamaican roots, and Maduka Francis Uduh’s At Peace, At Home – sculptures inspired by his native Nigeria. At Wilkins enjoy the work of Jamie Downs – Searching for Oneness: 50 Years of Spiritual Art, and the photography of Howard Clark in For Love of Landscape.
Artists & Makers Studios 1 on Parklawn hosts “Elemental” – Wayson R. Jones considers landscape, not pictorially, but as an embodiment of process: geologic, meteorological, and cosmologic. Concerned with primal forces and masses that underlie the built world we often take for granted – these thickly textured pieces have a sculptural, weighty presence that at times recalls rock, snow and ice, or dried-up waterways. “Angels and Abstracts” features the colorful combined series of Sharon Fox-Mould. The sculptures of Nigerian artist Maduka Francis Uduh in “At Peace, At Home” began 30 years ago, inspired by his environment as he created pieces influenced by the culture, landscape, and the socioeconomic uncertainties of his country. In a new chapter of his life, he finds himself on a new journey of creativity. Theremin music throughout the evening by Arthur Harrison in the artist hall as well as resident artists’ open studios will add to the experience.
Additionally, A&M2 on Wilkins is proud to present “Searching for Oneness: 50 Years of Spiritual Art.” Jamie Downs has worked in mixed media non-objective painting for over 50 years exploring themes of oneness and transcendence, searching for her own personal archetypes. “For Love of Landscape” features the photographs of Howard Clark and reveals the hidden treasures in our neighborhoods, local parks, our National and State parks. The Montgomery County Camera Club hosts a group exhibition titled “The Winner’s Circle”, along with a new exhibit by the member artists in Gallery 209 and resident artists’ open studios – all just 9/10’s of a mile from the flagship location on Parklawn with free parking at both locations and the best parties in town.
