Artists & Makers Studios Presents
“Navigation/Immigration” with Alonzo Davis
“Waterborne” with Cindy Packard Richmond
“This Ain’t Yo Mama’s Textiles” with Melanye Coleman
(Rockville, MD) – Artists & Makers Studios on Parklawn in Rockville will present three thought-provoking exhibits in three galleries for the month of May. “Navigation/Immigration” with Alonzo Davis, whose artworks are a take on early Micronesian navigation tools, and an exploration of the many modes of transport immigrants use while seeking sanctuary from war and oppression. “Waterborne” with Cindy Packard Richmond examines water in its infinite variations – placid or fierce – the artist is struck by how water affects what it touches, what lives beneath or floats above. “This Ain’t Yo Mama’s Textiles” with Melanye Coleman juxtaposes portraits of women who defy traditional gender stereotypes to show their boundary-defying beauty on fabric – a material that, like them, is strong yet soft, and as varied as the women portrayed.
