WCADC Community Arts News

From C Farrell Johnson Fine Arts, LLC, Newsletter

Hope I'll Join the Band
In 2013, the Montgomery County Arts & Humanities Council awarded Cynthia Farrell Johnson an individual artist grant to create a body of work.  It will allow her to produce paintings and prints inspired by 10 different jazz musicians.  The idea for the proposal was sparked by her 2010 project that interpreted a number of spirituals her late father sang.  One of them, Hope I'll Join the Band, got her thinking about ways to honor jazz artists who had influenced or inspired her at various stages of her life. This year, as the project unfolds, Cynthia will provide updates. Visit for your distinctive fine art reproductions for all occasions. 

From Women's Art Collaborative

Our first featured artist of 2014 is WCADC member Cherie M. Redlinger.

They are a reflection of times and places that point to her life and artistic being. Read more about Cherie on her featured artist page, view her artwork in our gallery.  

From Touchstone Gallery

Sculptors Wheeler, Shaw, Luckett, Frazier and Brotman transform earthen materials and 
detritus into elegant sculptural forms using fire, colorants, adhesives, carving tools and 
imaginations keyed into limitless possibilities of three dimensional constructions. They 
share a love of materials, storytelling, and an internal inclination to build--to transform one form into another form. Exhibition Dates: January 3-February 2, 2014. Touchstone Gallery 901 New York Ave., WDC. metro: Gallery Place/Chinatown 9th Street exit.
