Works by more than 25 local artists will be on display at the Baltimore Woods Weeks Art Gallery from November 5-December 21, 2012. An artist reception for the Drawing on Talent show will be held on Saturday, November 10, from 2-4pm. The exhibit and reception are open to the public with no admission or parking fee.
The exhibit includes watercolors by Susi Buschbacher, Judy Hand, Jill Newton, Bob Ripley and Nancy Scanlon, oil paintings by Barbara Bratt, Karen Burns and Hetty Easter, gouache by Chris Baker, and pastels by Barbara Delmonico and Ruth Anne Reagan, among many others. The exhibit also showcases jewelry by Deborah Laun, in addition to photography and sculptures. The majority of the artwork is for sale, featuring unique gifts just in time for the holidays. Many pieces depict local images and scenes.
Participating artists are all members of Baltimore Woods Nature Center, which is a member supported organization. Baltimore Woods installs six art exhibits each year. The first five typically showcase the work of 1-3 area artists, while this last exhibit of the year is Baltimore Woods’ members exhibit. The group show includes works in a wide range of mediums and themes, expressing each artist’s vision. This is the fourth annual group members show at The Woods.

“Our community is very fortunate to have such an abundance of talented artists. Our Members Exhibit is a terrific annual event to celebrate local artists who we are so pleased are also members of The Woods,” says Deirdre Aureden, who recently became the new gallery director at Baltimore Woods.
