ONE HOUSE Project 2018 - on view now


ONE HOUSE PROJECT - 2018              NOVEMBER 10 - DECEMBER 15, 2018

AT BLACKROCK CENTER FOR THE ARTS, Germantown, Maryland


The One House Project at BlackRock presents a heterogeneous collection of art from descendants of Native Americans, African slaves, Mayflower Pilgrims, Jewish Holocaust survivors, European indentured servants and every successive wave of immigration.
With over 50 countries of origin represented, a common shared narrative is the flight from persecution or extreme poverty, and the hope for a new chance in America. Quests for the American Dream that began over 400 years ago with the very first arrivals continue to this day. The house, covered by panels, makes a powerful visual statement of the strength of diversity and the common elements of our shared humanity.

“HerStory” 2018 on-line juried exhibition on view until August 20th


"It is an honor and privilege to present the Manhattan Arts International “HerStory” 2018 exhibition through August 20, 2018. It features art by extraordinary women artists from around the world. A range of subjects, styles, mediums, and sizes of art reflect their far-reaching artistic competence and innovation.  As the juror and curator of this exhibition I took care to select artists who meet our standards of excellence. They have mastered their mediums and developed a cohesive body of work in a signature style that reflects their unique creative vision. They have also acquired essential career credentials, among other requirements. Unfortunately, there were many deserving artists who also entered excellent works of art; however this exhibition was limited to 57 artists. Please contact the artists directly to purchase, exhibit or write about their artwork. Links to their websites are provided." ~ Renée Phillips, Juror/Curator & Director, Manhattan Arts International

Diversely inspired from their personal journeys and careers, these contemporary works reflect abstraction and improvised use of color, shape, and form.
