Find Yourself Under the Influence at the 24th Annual Prince George’s County Juried Exhibit Nov. 5-Dec. 28, Public Reception Nov. 17
By Annamarya Scaccia
At one point or another, an artist is impacted by the social, political, or visual, whether they know it or not. And, at one point or another, a purveyor of their work can see that influence clearly in their creations, even if it’s not meant to be there.
This is because artists are pure sponges for the world around them, even without intention. It’s why the 24th Annual Prince George’s County Juried Exhibit 2012 is titled “Under the Influence.” The showcase, which opened Nov. 5, seeks to explore these subconscious and conscious inspirations, and how they’re retold. It will run through December 28 at the Arts/Harmony Hall Regional Center, 10701 Livingston Road in Fort Washington.
A two-hour public reception for the artists is scheduled for Saturday, November 17, starting at 3 p.m. An artists’ talk will take place on Saturday, November 24 from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m., and light refreshments will be served during the event.
