Artists & Makers Studios Presents It’s About Love & Believing is Seeing A Year-End Contemplation (Rockville, MD) [more+]
Artists & Makers Studios Presents It’s About Love & Believing is Seeing A Year-End Contemplation (Rockville, MD) – Artists & Makers Studios on Parklawn in Rockville will present two exhibits in three galleries for the month of December. “It’s About Love” with painter John Bodkin will fill the Gallery Hall. Love has many flavors, many moods…and it provides a very real and meaningful place to find imagery and ideas, flashes of insight that people can connect with, because while universal it is deeply personal and intimate for each of us. “Believing is Seeing” with the Women’s Caucus for Art/DC is an exhibit juried by Rebecca Cross of the Cross MacKenzie Gallery in Georgetown. In the world of science as in much of life, seeing is believing. In the world of art, more often the reverse is true: believing is seeing. In the studio an artist borrows from her own imagination and vision, whether from a very personal inner world, or from the material world around her.   It’s About Love and Believing is Seeing In the Clay Gallery – Mary Del Bianco and Resident Artists’ Open Studios for Holiday Shopping Opening Reception 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM, Friday, December 2nd, 2016 Artists & Makers Studios 11810 Parklawn Dr., Suite 210 Rockville, MD 20852 Additionally A&M is proud to announce the soft opening of Artists & Makers Studios 2 at 12276 Wilkins Avenue in Rockville, just 9/10’s of a mile from the flagship location. A celebration is in order. Come visit the artists’ studios and take in two glorious exhibits: “The Reachable Shore” with renowned figurative artist Judith Peck, whose work will be featured in January’s issue of American Art Collector Magazine – and the grand opening of the New Masters Art Gallery with 30 of the area’s finest representational painters. These exhibits at both locations open Friday, December 2nd, and continue through Wednesday, December 28th, 2016.  Viewing hours are 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM, Tuesday-Friday, 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM Saturdays, and Sundays/Mondays by chance or appointment. The business offices at both locations will be closed for the holiday on Dec. 23-24th. Artists & Makers Studios on Parklawn Drive in Rockville, established in October 2014 by artist and arts community builder Judith HeartSong, is a 13,000 sq. ft. facility is home to 68 resident artists. Newly opened Artists & Makers Studios 2 on Wilkins Avenue in Rockville is a 23,000 sq. ft. facility with 42 resident artists and more to come.

Artists & Makers Studios 2 Presents The Reachable Shore & The Grand Opening of the New Masters Art Gallery A New Beginning (Rockville, MD) – Artists & Makers Studios 2 on Wilkins Avenue in Rockville will present two exhibits for the month of December, celebrating the soft opening of this new location. “The Reachable Shore” with renowned figurative painter Judith Peck will be featured in the second floor gallery. Full of life and resilient, the people Judith depicts in her work prove that it is possible to summon great strength and self-distinction and remain unbowed. The thread running through all of her work is about how we heal ourselves in this broken world. Judith Peck’s work will be featured in the January issue of American Art Collector Magazine. The Grand Opening of the New Masters Gallery on the third floor will feature the works of 30 of the area’s finest representational artists in one extraordinary exhibit. The Montgomery County Camera Club is presenting “Simply The Best”, a photography exhibit featuring the best work from the MoCo Camera Club Members. This exhibit will take you on an artistic journey showcasing images from different photographic genres. Landscapes, portraits, abstracts and still life are just a few of the photography styles that will be on display in the photography hall. ***The club will also take free holiday portraits of the guests and visitors that stop by. The photos will be printed on-site and given to the guests before they leave. They will take home a 4x6 print in a paper/cardboard frame as a gift from the Club!

Love has many flavors, many moods…and it provides a very real and meaningful place to find imagery and ideas, flashes of insight that people can connect with, because while universal it is deeply personal and intimate for each of us. “Believing is Seeing” with the Women’s Caucus for Art/DC is an exhibit juried by Rebecca Cross of the Cross MacKenzie Gallery in Georgetown. These exhibits at both locations open Friday, December 2nd, and continue through Wednesday, December 28th, 2016.  Viewing hours are 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM, Tuesday-Friday, 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM Saturdays, and Sundays/Mondays by chance or appointment.

Summer is winding down, and fall will be here before we know it! Beat the rush and get registered for Home School programs at The Highwood Theatre now! The vision of the Home School Production Company is to develop and inspire a community of self-confident, insightful creators with a passion for collaboration, theatre, and the arts. This year, the Fall segment (September 30th - December 16th) will focus on developing and writing a theatre piece. Students in this segment will learn about all aspects of theatre through workshops, exercises, and games, and will work with theatre professionals to write or adapt their own theatre piece. The Winter/Spring segment (January 13th - March 31st) will focus on rehearsing and producing the piece written in the fall, and will culminate in a final production. Students in this segment will rehearse for and then perform the student-written piece in a full-scale production. The Home School Production Company is open to students grades 2-7 and meets every Friday from 12:30 - 3:30 PM. Participation fee is $250 plus a $25 materials fee.​ The Home School class this Fall is "Living Shakespeare," where students grades 1-7 can explore the world of Shakespeare in this engaging, active class. Not only will students get a chance to read and act some of Shakespeare's greatest scenes and monologues, they will explore the stories behind his work and what life was like in Shakespearean times. This class culminates in a final showcase performance. The Fall segment runs September 30th - November 18th, and meets on Fridays from 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM. Participation Fee is $200 (or $125 if you also sign up for the Home School Production Company). The Student Tech Crew is open to Home School students in grades 4 - 12 who will meet regularly to learn about all aspects of Technical Theatre and create the technical elements of Highwood's Mainstage Season of student and professional productions. Students will have the opportunity to work on all aspects of technical theatre and will get to choose their focus area to work on for each production (set, props, costumes, lighting, sound). Tech Crew members can choose to come one or two days per week: Thursday evenings 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm or Saturday afternoons 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm. The Fall semester runs from September 8th - December 15th, but we offer open enrollment throughout the year, so you can join us anytime! Participation Fee is $80 a month for once a week sessions.

Artists & Makers Studios Presents It’s About Love & Believing is Seeing A Year-End Contemplation (Rockville, MD) [more+]
Artists & Makers Studios Presents It’s About Love & Believing is Seeing A Year-End Contemplation (Rockville, MD) – Artists & Makers Studios on Parklawn in Rockville will present two exhibits in three galleries for the month of December. “It’s About Love” with painter John Bodkin will fill the Gallery Hall. Love has many flavors, many moods…and it provides a very real and meaningful place to find imagery and ideas, flashes of insight that people can connect with, because while universal it is deeply personal and intimate for each of us. “Believing is Seeing” with the Women’s Caucus for Art/DC is an exhibit juried by Rebecca Cross of the Cross MacKenzie Gallery in Georgetown. In the world of science as in much of life, seeing is believing. In the world of art, more often the reverse is true: believing is seeing. In the studio an artist borrows from her own imagination and vision, whether from a very personal inner world, or from the material world around her.   It’s About Love and Believing is Seeing In the Clay Gallery – Mary Del Bianco and Resident Artists’ Open Studios for Holiday Shopping Opening Reception 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM, Friday, December 2nd, 2016 Artists & Makers Studios 11810 Parklawn Dr., Suite 210 Rockville, MD 20852 Additionally A&M is proud to announce the soft opening of Artists & Makers Studios 2 at 12276 Wilkins Avenue in Rockville, just 9/10’s of a mile from the flagship location.

These exhibits at both locations open Friday, December 2nd, and continue through Wednesday, December 28th, 2016.  Viewing hours are 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM, Tuesday-Friday, 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM Saturdays, and Sundays/Mondays by chance or appointment. The business offices at both locations will be closed for the holiday on Dec. 23-24th.

Artists & Makers Studios 2 Presents The Reachable Shore & The Grand Opening of the New Masters Art Gallery A New Beginning (Rockville, MD) – Artists & Makers Studios 2 on Wilkins Avenue in Rockville will present two exhibits for the month of December, celebrating the soft opening of this new location. “The Reachable Shore” with renowned figurative painter Judith Peck will be featured in the second floor gallery. Full of life and resilient, the people Judith depicts in her work prove that it is possible to summon great strength and self-distinction and remain unbowed. The thread running through all of her work is about how we heal ourselves in this broken world. Judith Peck’s work will be featured in the January issue of American Art Collector Magazine. The Grand Opening of the New Masters Gallery on the third floor will feature the works of 30 of the area’s finest representational artists in one extraordinary exhibit. The Montgomery County Camera Club is presenting “Simply The Best”, a photography exhibit featuring the best work from the MoCo Camera Club Members.

Summer is winding down, and fall will be here before we know it! Beat the rush and get registered for Home School programs at The Highwood Theatre now! The vision of the Home School Production Company is to develop and inspire a community of self-confident, insightful creators with a passion for collaboration, theatre, and the arts. This year, the Fall segment (September 30th - December 16th) will focus on developing and writing a theatre piece. Students in this segment will learn about all aspects of theatre through workshops, exercises, and games, and will work with theatre professionals to write or adapt their own theatre piece. The Winter/Spring segment (January 13th - March 31st) will focus on rehearsing and producing the piece written in the fall, and will culminate in a final production. Students in this segment will rehearse for and then perform the student-written piece in a full-scale production. The Home School Production Company is open to students grades 2-7 and meets every Friday from 12:30 - 3:30 PM. Participation fee is $250 plus a $25 materials fee.​ The Home School class this Fall is "Living Shakespeare," where students grades 1-7 can explore the world of Shakespeare in this engaging, active class. Not only will students get a chance to read and act some of Shakespeare's greatest scenes and monologues, they will explore the stories behind his work and what life was like in Shakespearean times. This class culminates in a final showcase performance. The Fall segment runs September 30th - November 18th, and meets on Fridays from 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM. Participation Fee is $200 (or $125 if you also sign up for the Home School Production Company). The Student Tech Crew is open to Home School students in grades 4 - 12 who will meet regularly to learn about all aspects of Technical Theatre and create the technical elements of Highwood's Mainstage Season of student and professional productions.

Tech Crew members can choose to come one or two days per week: Thursday evenings 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm or Saturday afternoons 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm. The Fall semester runs from September 8th - December 15th, but we offer open enrollment throughout the year, so you can join us anytime! Participation Fee is $80 a month for once a week sessions.
