The Department of Visual and Performing Arts invite you to the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus to view works by artist B.D. Richardson.

The photographs in this exhibition are from a body of work documenting the iconic, yet slowly vanishing rural landscapes of North America, from the Chesapeake Bay to New England, the Rocky Mountains to Canada, and many places in between. Buildings once basic to these rural areas like churches and old schoolhouses, wooden grain elevators and silos are either being abandoned and/or replaced by new impersonal structures. Nothing conveys the enormous changes taking place in our country like these vanishing foundations of our past.

The technique used to create these works is unique. The images are captured digitally but then printed onto film. The film images are then transferred to hand-aged metal plates. The finished plates are then custom framed in original old barnwood from upstate New York.

Exhibition Dates: November 14 - January 6
Opening Reception: Thursday, December 8, 6 - 8 p.m.

Location: The Open Gallery is on the ground floor of The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation Arts Center on the west side of the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus. For more information: Call 240-567-5821 or visit
