Two exhibitions to open at Allegany Arts Council
CUMBERLAND—The Allegany Arts Council will present two exhibitions from July 31-August 28, 2021.
Jenny Wilson’s solo exhibition, Natural Abstraction, will be on display in the Saville Gallery. Wilson has a passion for color and texture, and describes her paintings as contemporary landscape or contemporary abstract. Trained as both a visual artist and a musician, her painting is informed by her musical knowledge; gradations of tone color, balance, tension and release, and rhythm all play into how she composes a painting. A Public Opening will take place Saturday, July 31 from 6:00PM-8:00PM. The public is invited and the event is free to attend.
An exhibition entitled Creative Community Creating Unity will be on display in the Schwab Gallery. A collaboration among the Allegany Arts Council, Allegany College of Maryland, Frostburg State University, Allegany County NAACP Branch 7007, and the Community Resilience Council, the show includes the work of artists of all skill levels, exploring issues of equity, diversity, inclusion, affirmation, justice, and access. A Public Opening will take place Saturday, August 14 from 6:00PM-8:00PM. The public is invited and the event is free to attend.
