Artists & Makers Studios Parklawn Presents
The Compass Atelier’s Master Artist Program Thesis Exhibition, Class of 2020
(Rockville, MD) – The graduates of The Compass Atelier’s Master Artist Program, Class of 2020 will have their Thesis Exhibition at Artists & Makers Studios from February 7-27, 2020. This exhibition will feature the work of 21 graduating artists completed during their Thesis Year of the Master Artist Program. The Master Artist Program combines traditional painting methods with contemporary concepts in just 3 years of logical step-by-step artistic study, and has become a viable alternative to more expensive and time-consuming university education with waitlists now stretching into 2023. It is the brainchild of longtime Maryland Institute College of Art instructor Glen Kessler, an internationally recognized artist in his own right. An opening reception will be held on Friday, February 7th from 6-9pm in conjunction with Artists & Makers Studios’ First Friday events. Also, from 1-3pm on each Saturday and Sunday of the show, exhibiting artists will hold Artist Talks, Artist Demonstrations, and Artist Lectures. A full calendar of speakers is listed on The Compass Atelier’s website (TheCompassAtelier.com). This three-gallery exhibit will open for First Friday festivities on February 7th between 6pm and 9pm and will also showcase Resident Artists’ open studios for browsing and shopping.
