The public is invited to meet the artists during a free Artists Reception, which will feature a demonstration with Bertrand Mao, Erica Yu, Liwen Quach, and Natacha Lo, on Sunday, May 19 from 2 to 4 p.m. A proclamation declaring May as Asian Pacific Heritage Month will be presented during the Mayor and City Council meeting on May 6 at 7:30 p.m.

This year celebrates the 20th Annual Exhibition of Chinese Calligraphy and Brush Painting at the Activity Center at Bohrer Park. Group members and their students will exhibit their works in traditional and contemporary Chinese styles.

The Harmonious Art Group was founded in 1995 by Bertrand Mao, master of Chinese Shan-Shui (Mountain-Water) and calligraphy, and John Wang, master of Chinese calligraphy and seal cutting, to share the beauty of this ancient art form with the community. Over the years members have incorporated new techniques and styles demonstrating the diversity of Chinese art. For more information e-mail info@HarmoniousArtGroup.com.

The Goldman Art Gallery of the Gildenhorn/Speisman Center for the Arts of the Bender JCC of Greater Washington presents:

A Lifetime of Perspective: Art by Adults 65 and Better

May 19 – June 17, 2019

From the Exhibition Sponsors:

David Berliant, father and grandfather, was an avid “Sunday painter;” his wife, Eve, was his most devoted fan. Their love of art has been passed down to us, their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. In their honor, we want senior artists to have the opportunity to display their talent and share it with their loved ones.
From the family of David and Eve Berliant: Deena Berliant Kaplan, Jerome A. Kaplan, Karen E. Kaplan, Jessica M. Kaplan, Joseph Youcha, Carolyn K. and Steven H. Bernstein.

This Exhibit is Supported By The Berliant-Kaplan Endowment Fund.

Additional support for this and other Gildenhorn/Speisman Center for the Arts (GSCA) programs is provided by a grant from the Maryland State Arts Council, an agency dedicated to cultivating a vibrant cultural community where the arts thrive. Funding for the Maryland State Arts Council is also provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency, which believes that a great nation deserves great art. The Bender JCC is also supported in part by funding from the Montgomery County government and the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County, the County Executive’s Ball for the Arts and other private sources.

Senior Adult Programs at the Bender JCC:

The Bender JCC of Greater Washington sponsors an extensive range of activities for older adults — including kosher lunches, classes, lectures, excursions, educational and cultural programs, programs for visually impaired senior citizens, ESOL and citizenship classes for immigrants, educational seminars, cultural programming, self-directed groups, volunteer opportunities, exercise and health education — as part of its ongoing commitment to wellness and the welfare of adults in the community. The Bender JCC is a home away from home for thousands of senior adults. In addition to programs at our Rockville location and Ring House, the Bender JCC sponsors senior adult programming in and around Silver Spring.

But today, Pooh and Piglet have to find the Heffalump, watch Rabbit scheme to rid the forest of Kanga’s dreaded bathtub, and help Eeyore search for his tail. Pooh's intentions are always the best, but his passion for honey and condensed milk keeps getting him into trouble.

Harmony Express offers "Experience/Learn" every  spring.  For the first time, the program is OPEN TO BOTH WOMEN AND MEN.

These are not one-on-one singing lessons.  The Director seats participants with the appropriate section (tenor/lead/baritone/bass) of the chorus, so they learn at their own pace and with the support of veteran singers.

We offer "Experience/Learn" at four consecutive Harmony Express rehearsals: May 19, May 26, June 2, and June 9.  Newcomers are welcome to keep coming back after the program ends if they choose.  No cost, and certainly no obligation.

We supply sheet music, access to audio learning tracks on our website, and demonstrations of quartet technique applicable not just to barbershop but to any a cappella style.  Just bring your voice and your love of ringing chords!

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.

Explore this 19th-century historic treasure! One of the best remaining examples of a one-room schoolhouse in Montgomery County! 

Built in 1893 in response to the need for a school within walking distance of farms located in the Little Bennett Creek Valley, the Kingsley Schoolhouse served the local, rural farming community until it closed in 1935. Each year, around 20 children ranging in age from 6-12 years old attended the school. Since the immediate area was known locally as Froggy Hollow – due to the large number of frogs that could be heard peeping in the low-lying area – the school acquired the nickname of Froggy Hollow School.

A timeless tale of a boy lost in the dense jungle of India, Rudyard Kipling’s “The Jungle Book” contains themes of respect, communication, integrity, and curiosity. While it may seem far from the world of ballet, Hope Garden Children’s Ballet Theatre Artistic Director Fran Ichijo proved in this original adaptation that classic and modern dance is the perfect medium to express the jungle animals’ unique and colorful way that they communicate, each with their own unique dance of life.

Over the years members have incorporated new techniques and styles demonstrating the diversity of Chinese art. For more information e-mail info@HarmoniousArtGroup.com.

The Goldman Art Gallery of the Gildenhorn/Speisman Center for the Arts of the Bender JCC of Greater Washington presents:

A Lifetime of Perspective: Art by Adults 65 and Better

May 19 – June 17, 2019

From the Exhibition Sponsors:

David Berliant, father and grandfather, was an avid “Sunday painter;” his wife, Eve, was his most devoted fan. Their love of art has been passed down to us, their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. In their honor, we want senior artists to have the opportunity to display their talent and share it with their loved ones.
From the family of David and Eve Berliant: Deena Berliant Kaplan, Jerome A. Kaplan, Karen E. Kaplan, Jessica M. Kaplan, Joseph Youcha, Carolyn K. and Steven H. Bernstein.

This Exhibit is Supported By The Berliant-Kaplan Endowment Fund.

Additional support for this and other Gildenhorn/Speisman Center for the Arts (GSCA) programs is provided by a grant from the Maryland State Arts Council, an agency dedicated to cultivating a vibrant cultural community where the arts thrive. Funding for the Maryland State Arts Council is also provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency, which believes that a great nation deserves great art. The Bender JCC is also supported in part by funding from the Montgomery County government and the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County, the County Executive’s Ball for the Arts and other private sources.

Senior Adult Programs at the Bender JCC:

The Bender JCC of Greater Washington sponsors an extensive range of activities for older adults — including kosher lunches, classes, lectures, excursions, educational and cultural programs, programs for visually impaired senior citizens, ESOL and citizenship classes for immigrants, educational seminars, cultural programming, self-directed groups, volunteer opportunities, exercise and health education — as part of its ongoing commitment to wellness and the welfare of adults in the community. The Bender JCC is a home away from home for thousands of senior adults. In addition to programs at our Rockville location and Ring House, the Bender JCC sponsors senior adult programming in and around Silver Spring.

Harmony Express offers "Experience/Learn" every  spring.  For the first time, the program is OPEN TO BOTH WOMEN AND MEN.

These are not one-on-one singing lessons.  The Director seats participants with the appropriate section (tenor/lead/baritone/bass) of the chorus, so they learn at their own pace and with the support of veteran singers.

We offer "Experience/Learn" at four consecutive Harmony Express rehearsals: May 19, May 26, June 2, and June 9.  Newcomers are welcome to keep coming back after the program ends if they choose.  No cost, and certainly no obligation.

We supply sheet music, access to audio learning tracks on our website, and demonstrations of quartet technique applicable not just to barbershop but to any a cappella style.  Just bring your voice and your love of ringing chords!

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.

Explore this 19th-century historic treasure! One of the best remaining examples of a one-room schoolhouse in Montgomery County! 

Built in 1893 in response to the need for a school within walking distance of farms located in the Little Bennett Creek Valley, the Kingsley Schoolhouse served the local, rural farming community until it closed in 1935. Each year, around 20 children ranging in age from 6-12 years old attended the school. Since the immediate area was known locally as Froggy Hollow – due to the large number of frogs that could be heard peeping in the low-lying area – the school acquired the nickname of Froggy Hollow School.
