Lexington Park Gallery

Lexington Park Library Art Gallery

August 1-31, 2014:  Ruth Collins

Opening reception to be held Thursday, August 21, 5-8pm at the Lexington Park Library.

Ruth Collins has always been an artist. She has always enjoyed drawing, painting, portraiture and landscapes. Her subjects usually strike her in an instant of “drive-by” glances. She works using her own photos as reference, and usually has the title in mind before she even begins. She considers all of her work to be portraits, regardless of whether or not a face is involved.

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 local artist Candice Cummings at 301-863-6693 if interested in displaying your work. She recruits 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.
