The Department of Visual and Performing Arts invite you to the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus to view a group exhibit by nineteen local artists in the King Street Gallery.

<i>Personal Patterns</i>, curated by Claudia Rousseau, professor of art history, <i>Personal Patterns</i> shows how artists use abstract pattern in work about activism, ethnic identity, psychology, and more.

According to curator Claudia Rousseau, Personal Patterns engages "how an artist's use of pattern might reveal something about his/her sense of identity, express cultural traditions, ethnic or racial origins, and family ties." Personal Patterns brings together 19 artists who work in media as diverse as glass, photography, mixed-media sculpture, monotype, and acrylic painting. Their work is linked not by medium, but through their adoption of pattern in a personally distinct way.

Personal Patterns includes work by local artists Sondra Arkin, Michele Banks, Jessica Beels, Joan Belmar, Shanthi Chandrasekar, Alonzo Davis, Helen Frederick, Susan Goldman, Amber Robles-Gordon, Pat Goslee, Elyse Harrison, Sean Hennessey, Ellen Hill, Matt Hollis, Bridget Sue Lambert, Carien Quigora, Jessica Van Brakle, Ellyn Weiss, and Helen Zughaib.

King Street Gallery
