What a year for the Arts Council of Riderwood! It was just a year ago that the ACR launched the first of three resident-staff exhibits in Lakeside Commons, Montgomery Station and Village Square. The ACR, a resident-staff collaboration, is using “lessons learned” from our first year to move into the second phase of exhibits. The ACR banners are up and the catalogs for each exhibit and other ACR-related literature are on tables in each exhibit area.
Betsy Brener, a resident and seasoned docent in museums, led two Art Talks at Village Square in December to highlight some of the art that was exhibited in 2017.
The next round of jurying is scheduled for 8:30-10:00 a.m. on Thursday January 25 in the Card Room at Village Square. Applications to participate are now at front desks. The new exhibit will open with a reception at Lakeside Commons on February 1.
