Enjoy a night of food and drink with abstract artists!
Artists Sylvia Snowden (b. 1942) and Shinique Smith (b. 1971) share their stories and their artwork featured in Magnetic Fields: Expanding American Abstraction, 1960s to Today during this in-gallery program.
These artists represent the multigenerational continuum of visual abstraction in America and pour themselves into their creations.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
Snowden, a Washington, D.C.-based painter, manifests her energy and emotions through gestural applications of paint on canvas.
Smith, a Baltimore-born Maryland Institute College of Art alumna, offers viewers a bit of herself by incorporating personal clothing in her sculptures.
Following in-gallery artist talks, guests will have time to explore the galleries, speak with the artists, and enjoy food and beverages.
