Anne Arundel Community College Printmakers Club
Interpreting Nature

September 6–October 29, 2022

After a field trip to draw from nature at the Arboretum, this group created a boxed portfolio of prints inspired by the visit. Including intaglio, lithography, relief, and silk screen, these prints by beginning and mid-career artists, as well as AACC faculty members, represent a wide range of individual approaches and styles. There will be a reception to meet the artists and learn about their work on Saturday, September 10 from 2 to 4 p.m.

Howard & Mary McCoy

May 3–September 30, 2022

Whenever they are in the Arboretum’s forest, environmental artists Howard and Mary McCoy are on the lookout for places that might inspire them to make art. For more than 20 years, these Centreville artists have been making art in the woods, using the materials they find there. Inspired by nature’s own creativity, they alter or augment the trees, vines or fallen branches they find there, creating sculptures that are so close to nature that they will make you do a doubletake. Their site-specific sculptures will be on view along the Arboretum’s trails. There will be a guided sculpture walk in conjunction with Kit-Keung Kan’s reception on Saturday, June 4 from 2 to 4 p.m.
