In a series of abstract paintings, Anne Marchand explores a new vocabulary of color and texture in the swirling vortexes of nebulae and the surfaces of moons and planets, bringing these into her ongoing search for ways to approach mystic poetry through visual expression. In the show, "Of Shining Worlds: Recent Paintings by Anne Marchand," curator Claudia Rousseau highlights more than 30 paintings by Washington, DC based artist Anne Marchand. The exhibition brings together works inspired by images from the Hubble spacecraft that relate to the artists theme of interconnections. The show at the King Street Gallery, the Morris and Gwendolyn Foundation Arts Center, Montgomery College will open with an artist's reception, on Thursday, September 22, 6:00 - 8:00pm, and remain on display through October 19, 2011.  The artist will comment on her work, followed by a poetry reading and live music on Thursday, September 29, 6:00 - 7:00pm.

The King Street Gallery is in the atrium of the Morris and Gwendolyn Foundation Arts Center on the west side of the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus. Parking is available in the West Garage which is located immediately behind the center.

The King Street Gallery is open Monday-Friday, 8:00 AM-4:00 PM; Saturday, 10 AM - 4 PM.

The King Street Gallery is the largest exhibition space in the Cafritz Arts Center. This 1050 square foot gallery is in the main atrium of the building. Its prominent location, open design, and extremely high ceilings make it a great venue for major exhibitions. While much of this gallery space is visible from the main lobby of the building, it does maintain gallery hours and is locked after hours.
