This year has been hard on local artists, so we’re giving local artists a boost by expanding our regular Frederick Artists Night event to include multiple artists all under one roof.
All art is for sale. Come support Frederick’s local artists. Dec 5. 3pm to 7pm.
Limit 10 people in the building at time. Masks required.
Featured Artist: Courtney Prahl
We are so excited to have Courtney Prahl as our Artist of the Month in December. Her “Finding Calm in the Chaos” exhibit (open to the public Dec 05 only) brings abstract and mixed media paintings to our main art wall.
Courtney studied at Clarion University of PA. Her background in sculpture quickly transitioned to her current work as a mixed media painter. She is inspired by bold color and pattern but also finds great reward in textures, creative paint applications. and non- traditional use of materials.
Courtney teaches art at Urbana Art & Soul and The Muse and conducts art enrichment workshops for teens, kids and adults through Frederick Community College’s “Kids and Teens on Campus” and Continuing Education program. She is also the cofounder of the Frederick Art Charity “Lend a Hand”,
an annual event that raises money for a select charity/non profit group.
Eric Bloom – Eric’s background is in computer science and technology, which is actually a very creative process. Now partly retired, Eric applies his creative energy to creating glass art.
Glass is a special material. It can be transparent, translucent, or opaque. It can be made in any color. When light encounters glass, some is always reflected – even with transparent glass. And light is refracted, or bent, when it passes through glass. The combination of these light transforming properties, along with color, creates an infinite spectrum of delightful viewing. Eric joins different pieces of glass together (glass fusion) to create unique decorative and functional pieces. More at GlassFlare.com.
Molly Supplee – Molly embraces the beauty of texture and imperfection, as she creates her abstract art using earthy elements, overlapping layers, mark-making, and collage. She approaches her art intuitively, throwing down a few marks or collaging a piece of paper. Letting go of all the over-thinking, the art guides her. Her goal is to spark curiosity within the viewer, encouraging them to use their creative mind to depict what they see. From afar her paintings can appear minimal, but once more time is spent with them, many layers and details reveal themselves – kind of like life.
Julia Ferguson – More combiner of things than “true artist”, this seasons expression of creativity comes in the form of framed holiday images perfect as gifts for yourself or others.
