BlackRock Center for the Arts - Now Showing

December 01 - December 23, 2010  

Yesterday, I took a lovely morning drive to Blackrock Arts Center in Germantown, MD with artist Sondra Arkin and friends. We had a lively dialogue about art and processes. Blackrock is approximately 50 minutes from Dupont Circle and yes! there's a Starbucks in the shopping center where it is located.

The center is spacious and airy and offers art, musical performances and art classes. The art gallery is a wonderfully large open space which handsomely displays art on a scale that the three current artists, Carol Brown Goldberg, Sondra Arkin and Greg Minah, are exhibiting. It is refreshing to see an exhibition that deals with contemporary abstraction so beautifully edited and expressed.

The exhibition is up through Thursday, December 23. You will be visually rewarded when you arrive!

Read Claudia Rousseau's article on the exhibition in the Gazette.

About Blackrock

In the early 1990s, a group of Germantown, Maryland residents began to promote the concept of an arts center that would be located within their own community. Their idea became a rallying point for Germantown's active civic leadership. Within a year, the Germantown Cultural Arts Center, Inc. (d/b/a BlackRock Center for the Arts) was founded as a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization to develop, own and manage BlackRock.
