November in the Galleries at A&M2 – Wilkins

Artists & Makers Studios 2 Presents
Alternative Evolution – with Eric Celarier
Magic Symmetry – with Peter Swift

(Rockville, MD) – Artists & Makers Studios 2 on Wilkins Avenue in Rockville will present two exhibits in the main galleries for the month of November. “Alternative Evolution” with Eric Celarier – the series portrays creatures adapted to, from, and by a world irrevocably changed by our interaction. The survival of any living creature is limited by that animal’s ability to keep adaptive pace with a continually mutating habitat. There is no doubt that we have had a significant hand in shaping the environment. Crafting creatures from refuse; the artist lends form to the idea that all future flora and fauna can be seen as byproducts of our existence. “Magic Symmetry” ”  an exhibit with Peter Swift, is the name of a hybrid new genre the artist is exploring, in which photorealistic renderings of objects are arranged in a symmetrical design, often a radial circle.  Symmetry is quite different from the traditional “slice-of-life” or “snapshot” approach, showing the objects on a table-top or in a cabinet, which has been used for centuries in still-life painting. The Montgomery County Camera Club presents “Show Us Your Best Shot” in the hallway gallery, along with exhibits in New Master’s 3rd floor Gallery, and Gallery 209 on the second floor. Arthur Harrison adds acoustic ambience with theremin music in the artists’ lounge and resident artists’ open studios throughout the buildings will round out the evening.
