[Frederick, MD] – The Frederick Arts Council announces a new exhibition featuring the work of 11 LGBTQ+ artists from Frederick, Baltimore, and DC on view on the first floor of FAC’s Art Center at 5 E 2nd St, Frederick, MD 21701.
The show will run through September 2022.
In this exhibition featuring LGBTQ+ artists from Frederick and the mid-Atlantic region, artists respond to the idea of limitless change – understanding and embracing the emerging fluidity and perpetual transformation of the human experience. Curated by Jillian Abir MacMaster, the exhibition features the work of Ruby Bassford, Asher Burrows, Mentwab Easwaran, Jamie Gerhold, Ashley Renee Hoffman, Marz Jackson, Molly Marie Nuzzo, Brooklyn Rando, Charlotte Richardson-Deppe, and Becca Schwartz to consider how growth is cultivated, nurtured, and experienced.
