EXHIBITION: SHADES OF PASTEL: MARYLAND PASTEL SOCIETY

Sat. May 7– Sat. July 2, 2022

The Maryland Pastel Society returns to Strathmore with their biennial juried exhibition featuring pastel artists from around the nation. Soft pastels have a high concentration of pigment, resulting in intense hues in an extensive range of colors from earth tones to vibrant shades. The Society is devoted to promoting the art of soft pastel and the professional development of pastel artists.

EXHIBITION: PIVOT: TERENCE NICHOLSON

Sat. May 7– Sat. July 2, 2022

Terence Nicholson’s works are the product of, but not necessarily defined by, the circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic. Although he had no desire for the body of work to focus on the pandemic specifically, its impact was unavoidable.

Nicholson was challenged to continue the making of objects during a time of limited space due to social distancing mandates and calls to stay indoors during the early days of the pandemic. As a result, he created a series of works on plexiglass, photo transfer, and video as well as smaller assemblages.

EXHIBITION: RASHAD ALI MUHAMMAD

Invitational Gallery

Sat. May 7– Sat. July 2, 2022

Rashad Muhammad builds a sense of wonder and mystique in his work through various mediums, inspired by his lived experiences, vivid imagination, and refined aesthetic. His work explores themes of spirituality, cultural identity, and finding harmony in life.
