Strathmore Reception for Fine Artists in Residence

On Friday, July 22 between 7:00-9:00pm there will be an opening reception for the 2010-2011 Fine Artists in Residence Exhibition. I plan to attend and offer my support and make some connections. If you are looking for something to do Friday evening stop on by and enjoy some great artwork!

Emerging Washington, D.C.-metro area artists Minna Philips, Solomon Slyce, Wilmer Wilson IV and Brittany Sims will conclude their residency experience by unveiling new works in the Strathmore Fine Artists in Residence Exhibition. These young artists’ unique voices and contemporary perspectives will be expressed through photography, mixed media, drawing and painting in the galleries in the Historic Mansion at Strathmore through Saturday, August 20, 2011. The multidimensional exhibition will also include work from Fine Artists in Residence mentors - multimedia artist F. Lennox Campello, award-winning photographer Susana Raab and co-founder of the Washington Glass School Tim Tate. For more information, call (301) 581-5100 or visit

The Strathmore Fine Artist in Residence (Fine AIR) program cultivates local visual arts talent in the D.C.-metro area by pairing emerging artists with established professionals in related disciplines and mediums. Fine AIR residencies last six months, during which time participants build an audience, hone their craft, create a curatorial proposal and premiere a new body of work commissioned by Strathmore in the culminating Fine Artists in Residence Exhibition. The artist mentors provide pupils with career guidance, artistic critique and career development opportunities throughout the program.
