Favorite Things

Scope Gallery

August 1 @ 10:00 am - September 4 @ 6:00 pm

Put a bird on it, put a bike on it, paint red roses or adhere a bow — getting to the root of things that make life good and bring smiles. Brace yourself because the cats will come crawling in, carb-centric pasta bowls abound and French-related adornments amuse. Unashamedly embracing things that tickle our fancy, potters paint animals, carve meanings into art and get downright dirty doing what they love! With the Kiln Club.


Symphony in Color


August 2 - September 5

The Gallery artists are challenged to try interesting color combinations.


Materialized Magic: Mythical Creatures in a Yarn Artistry Habitat

Torpedo Factory Art Center

The Art League

August 9 - September 4

Exhibit dates: August 9–September 4, 2016 Opening reception: Thursday, August 11, 6:30–8:00 pm Landschap is the Dutch word for landscape. The Netherlands was one of the first places where landscape became a popular subject matter to paint. For this exhibit, juried by Nora Sturges, Professor of Art at Towson University, the challenge is to take this traditional subject matter and bring it new life. Artists will answer the question: How does the landscape around us affect us?
