Since 2009, we have had the pleasure of bringing Washington, DC-area artists to the public’s view at the artdc Gallery.  We’ve had great success, and built a following.  However, we haven’t yet created the opportunity to showcase Hyattsville, MD artists as a group in our gallery.

We are now making up for lost time, and representing six Hyattsville artists: Ed Burck, Tom Cardarella, Stevie O’ Grady, Joe Rodgers, Ruth Horlick, and Chris Suspect.

The show is titled, “Emerging from Hyattsville,” and will include a wide variety of works and materials from our selection of Hyattsville-area artists.  Our selections were made by Denise Brown of Hyattsville Community Arts Alliance and Jesse Cohen of artdc.org.

As we are a part of the cultural front in the Hyattsville Arts District, we are pleased to work with our neighbors to bring incredible art your way.  It is our goal to develop community.

Ed Burck is a glass artist that creates surfaces with great luminosity.  Tom Cardarella explores figures and abstraction.  Stevie O’Grady works in a wide variety of media from glass to paint and beyond.  Ruth Horlick is a photographer who has created a body of work that captures the social, as well as symbolic expressions of life. Her work often focuses on just portions of graffiti or torn posters.  Joseph Rodgers is a mixed media artist with an international style and a universal subject mater.  Chris Suspect is presenting a show in our studio of photography documenting the landscape of Hyattsville with its life and changes.
