October 1-31, 2015: Air It Out: the Clothesline Project

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. For the entire month of October, Walden is displaying “Air It Out: the Clothesline Project” at the Lexington Park Library Art Gallery. “Air It Out” features a visual display created by women who have survived violence, or by those who wish to honor women victimized by violence. These displays, painted on t-shirts, tell stories in images of the impact of violence against women and the strength of survivors.

Are you an artist and wish you had a place to display your artwork with others? The Lexington Park Library Art Gallery might be that place. Since it opened in 2005, many amateur, student, and even professional artists have displayed their artwork.Contact the St. Mary’s County Arts Council at info@smcart.org or 240-309-0686 if interested in displaying your work. They recruit the artists to display their work and to curate the shows. The exhibits change every 4-6 weeks and a reception is held to recognize each artist.The Art Gallery has been funded by a generous donation from local businessman Tom Daugherty and the Friends of St. Mary’s County Library.
