ENVIRONMENT(S) Art Opening Reception

ENVIRONMENT(S) Art Opening Reception

Thursday, Oct. 6 at 7:30 pm

Takoma Park Community Center

7500 Maple Avenue

Three artists whose work branches from nature to urban themes will be featured in a new exhibition titled Environment(s), with a free opening reception this Thursday at the Takoma Park Community.
The artists include Caitlin Gill, Mary D. Ott, and Rick Ruggles. Gill is a mixed-media artist who explores ideas of identity, femininity, and the divergence between human and animal forms. Evoking ideas of discomfort, she encourages viewers to engage with their own connections to nature.
Ott’s work focuses on arboreal images, including etchings of trees and landscapes that she prints in small editions.
Ruggles is a photographer whose work revels in unusual shapes, textures, and moods, ranging from potholes in city streets to tufts of grass. He seeks to notice small details and simple beauty in the humblest of forms, materials, and shadows.
The exhibition will be on view at the Takoma Park Community Center until Jan. 3. Please go to to learn more about the Takoma Park Arts series and sign up for our e-newsletter for news about our upcoming events.
