Artists & Makers Studios, 11810 Parklawn Dr., Suite 210

Artists & Makers Studios on Parklawn in Rockville is proud to present two powerful exhibits in three galleries for the month of July.

Simmons, Nanno Smith, and Eugene Vango. Black Artists of DC was formed in 1999 when three artists: Viola Burley Leak, Planta (Jacqueline Reeder), and Claudia Aziza Gibson-Hunter decided to address the lack of communication and support between local Black artists. It is composed of artists, arts administrators, educators, dealers, collectors, museum directors, curators, gallery owners and arts enthusiasts. “The Identity of Water” with Cheryl Edwards will fill the Gallery Hall. Edwards returned from a trip to Havana, Cuba in 2014 and immediately started researching elements of water as it related to memory and identity. Resident artists’ open studios will round out the evening for visitors at Parklawn.
