From the author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory comes another unlikely hero: Matilda Wormwood. Born to parents who prize their own ignorance and disdain books, learning, and any information they can’t get from television, Matilda somehow manages to emerge...a genius. Maybe even a magical one. However, she and the rest of the school are under the tyrannical rule of a deliciously devious villain, principal Agatha Trunchbull. Matilda embraces the fearful and terrifying moments of childhood with humor, hard-earned optimism, and astoundingly witty musical numbers. Songs like “Miracle,” “Naughty,” and “Revolting Children” will ring true to adults and belong in the survival kit of any child making their way through pre-adolescence and beyond.

Arts on the Green presents the annual juried art exhibition of the Gaithersburg Fine Arts Association (GFAA) at Kentlands Mansion, May 3 through July 7, 2019. The public is invited to meet the artists at a free reception on Thursday, May 9 from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

This year’s exhibit was juried by Jean Hirons, a nationally recognized pastelist who is a signature member of the Pastel Society of America and a member of the Master Circle of the International Association of Pastel Societies. Jean also holds signature membership in the Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod and the Maryland Pastel Society. Her artwork has been featured in many national and international juried shows and is internationally collected. In addition to being a practicing artist, Jean teaches pastel at her studio at Artists and Makers in Rockville. She is the author of the well-received pastel instruction book, Finding Your Style in Pastel.

The GFAA provides a forum for members to collaborate on activities that expand on their individual artistic backgrounds, with emphasis on two-dimensional art. The group provides educational programs, promotional opportunities and outreach to local audiences and the broader artistic community. The group’s limited scope allows for intense dedication to the classical mediums of the arts. Members work in 2D format executed in, but not exclusively, oils, acrylic, pastel, watercolor, drawing media, and various mixed media. More information can be found at www.gaithersburgfinearts.org.

Please note that most of the artwork is for sale and all images are copyrighted by the artists.

Each week of summer camp will bring new art adventures. Our experienced teaching artists inspire creativity by teaching a variety of art-making techniques, and by exploring the styles of artists to help our campers draw inspiration for their own artwork. The week-long sessions allow for both multi-day and single-day projects, giving our campers the opportunity to work with a variety of materials, including watercolor and tempera paints, clay, plaster, oil pastels, and more. At the end of the week, each child will go home with a portfolio filled with original artwork! Project types include pottery, sculpture, drawing, painting, cartooning, collage, mixed media and more!

Come Explore and Dance Around The World and Into the Stars With Us This Summer!
Created by Lorraine Spiegler, Artistic Director of the CityDance School and Conservatory, CityDance’s themed children and youth camps  offer learning and fun through culture and creativity. Young dancers learn multi-cultural myths and themes from around the globe and are invited to explore how the tales relate to their daily lives. They take daily classes in ballet, modern, jazz, hip hop and world dance forms and learn challenging choreography in multiple styles. Young dancers imagine, improvise and learn to express themselves through the creation of their own dances as well. Dance, ideas, cultural themes, music, visual art and poetry are woven together in a final performance for family and friends.

[more+]

The Glen Echo Park Partnership is pleased to present “The Sound of Colors: Carl ‘Eugi’ Hall.” Imagining the sound colors make is the foundation of Hall’s creative spirit. This exhibition explores the merging of music and art and how the former can subconsciously influence the latter. Painted in acrylic, Hall’s works in abstract realism are what he refers to as “assorted music art,” which unintentionally captures the emotions of different genres of music. The artwork is created with the intention of inviting the viewer to invoke their own imaginative storyline and to hear what they see.

Art Walk & Opening Reception:

Enter the magical world of David Dimitri. Lauded “Lord of the Wire” by The New York Times, this world-famous high wire dancer and veteran of Cirque du Soleil and Big Apple Circus epitomizes innovation as he alone performs an entire circus. Creating what he calls “a unique magic” in the intimate setting of a one-of-a-kind tent, his L’homme Cirque—or one-man circus—balances dramatic feats like high wire flips and a human cannon launch with humor, poetry, and serenades on the accordion. It’s as gripping as it is charming—and with grand flourish, be awestruck as he exits the tent on his high wire, crossing above at 150 feet and into the sky.

[more+]

Although Amy Helm just released her second solo record, she is a veteran musician who proudly carries the torch of her family legacy. Helm was a founding member of alt-country collective Ollabelle and she served as a backing musician in her father Levon’s Midnight Ramble Band. On her latest work, This Too Shall Shine, Helm and GRAMMY-winning producer and songwriter Joe Henry arranged a diverse collection of songs that includes originals in addition to covers like Rod Stewart’s “Mandolin Wind” and Allen Toussaint’s “Freedom for the Stallion.” Her voice resonates with a sort of spiritual mysticism, saving souls through bluesy riffs and four-part harmonies.

From the author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory comes another unlikely hero: Matilda Wormwood. Born to parents who prize their own ignorance and disdain books, learning, and any information they can’t get from television, Matilda somehow manages to emerge...a genius. Maybe even a magical one. However, she and the rest of the school are under the tyrannical rule of a deliciously devious villain, principal Agatha Trunchbull. Matilda embraces the fearful and terrifying moments of childhood with humor, hard-earned optimism, and astoundingly witty musical numbers. Songs like “Miracle,” “Naughty,” and “Revolting Children” will ring true to adults and belong in the survival kit of any child making their way through pre-adolescence and beyond.

Arts on the Green presents the annual juried art exhibition of the Gaithersburg Fine Arts Association (GFAA) at Kentlands Mansion, May 3 through July 7, 2019. The public is invited to meet the artists at a free reception on Thursday, May 9 from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

This year’s exhibit was juried by Jean Hirons, a nationally recognized pastelist who is a signature member of the Pastel Society of America and a member of the Master Circle of the International Association of Pastel Societies. Jean also holds signature membership in the Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod and the Maryland Pastel Society. Her artwork has been featured in many national and international juried shows and is internationally collected. In addition to being a practicing artist, Jean teaches pastel at her studio at Artists and Makers in Rockville. She is the author of the well-received pastel instruction book, Finding Your Style in Pastel.

The GFAA provides a forum for members to collaborate on activities that expand on their individual artistic backgrounds, with emphasis on two-dimensional art. The group provides educational programs, promotional opportunities and outreach to local audiences and the broader artistic community. The group’s limited scope allows for intense dedication to the classical mediums of the arts. Members work in 2D format executed in, but not exclusively, oils, acrylic, pastel, watercolor, drawing media, and various mixed media. More information can be found at www.gaithersburgfinearts.org.

Please note that most of the artwork is for sale and all images are copyrighted by the artists.

Come Explore and Dance Around The World and Into the Stars With Us This Summer!
Created by Lorraine Spiegler, Artistic Director of the CityDance School and Conservatory, CityDance’s themed children and youth camps  offer learning and fun through culture and creativity. Young dancers learn multi-cultural myths and themes from around the globe and are invited to explore how the tales relate to their daily lives. They take daily classes in ballet, modern, jazz, hip hop and world dance forms and learn challenging choreography in multiple styles. Young dancers imagine, improvise and learn to express themselves through the creation of their own dances as well. Dance, ideas, cultural themes, music, visual art and poetry are woven together in a final performance for family and friends.

[more+]

The Glen Echo Park Partnership is pleased to present “The Sound of Colors: Carl ‘Eugi’ Hall.” Imagining the sound colors make is the foundation of Hall’s creative spirit. This exhibition explores the merging of music and art and how the former can subconsciously influence the latter. Painted in acrylic, Hall’s works in abstract realism are what he refers to as “assorted music art,” which unintentionally captures the emotions of different genres of music. The artwork is created with the intention of inviting the viewer to invoke their own imaginative storyline and to hear what they see.

Art Walk & Opening Reception:

Enter the magical world of David Dimitri. Lauded “Lord of the Wire” by The New York Times, this world-famous high wire dancer and veteran of Cirque du Soleil and Big Apple Circus epitomizes innovation as he alone performs an entire circus. Creating what he calls “a unique magic” in the intimate setting of a one-of-a-kind tent, his L’homme Cirque—or one-man circus—balances dramatic feats like high wire flips and a human cannon launch with humor, poetry, and serenades on the accordion. It’s as gripping as it is charming—and with grand flourish, be awestruck as he exits the tent on his high wire, crossing above at 150 feet and into the sky.

Although Amy Helm just released her second solo record, she is a veteran musician who proudly carries the torch of her family legacy. Helm was a founding member of alt-country collective Ollabelle and she served as a backing musician in her father Levon’s Midnight Ramble Band. On her latest work, This Too Shall Shine, Helm and GRAMMY-winning producer and songwriter Joe Henry arranged a diverse collection of songs that includes originals in addition to covers like Rod Stewart’s “Mandolin Wind” and Allen Toussaint’s “Freedom for the Stallion.” Her voice resonates with a sort of spiritual mysticism, saving souls through bluesy riffs and four-part harmonies.
