On Friday evening, we attended the opening night of Capitol Arts Network's
"A Grand Obsession," to enjoy Paul's Cycle Art
hanging on the walls, to see artist Betsy Stewart's beautiful large canvases, and to chat with other people involved with getting the new studios and galleries up and running at CAN Art Center. Here are a couple photos from the evening.
One of the featured artists in the main gallery is Betsy Stewart
, a local Maryland artist.
Using biomorphic images, my work examines the microscopic, mutually dependent life systems found in pond water; giving these images a presence speaks to our fragile position in the cosmos.
CAN also encourages local artists to display their works as part of an ongoing "Call for the Halls." One such artist is Paul Triolo
(center), who creates Cycle Art with photos taken and reworked on his iPhone and is shown here with Charlie and Cindy Cotte Griffiths.
Cindy Cotte Griffiths, who teaches yoga
in various forms throughout the Rockville area, will be offering the first "Be A Part Of The Art" Yoga class at CAN Art Center on June 22. The class will be held in this beautiful gallery space and will include time for both practicing yoga and creating some inspired art
