In the absence of our regular in-person art shows, MAA is hosting several online exhibits in 2020. Each exhibit will include judging, awards, and artist's salons.
The August show category is Urban Landscapes. Urban Landscape art is the depiction of human scenery such as cities, towns, people in motion through 2 dimensional art (excluding photography). Recognition will be made for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places; a award presentation will be held via Zoom on Saturday, August 1st to have the judge, Carolyn Bevans present the awards as well as her perspectives on the entire exhibit and the specific art pieces that are receiving awards.
Bevans currently works at the National Gallery of Art Educational Division. Carolyn’s background is in art history, docent management, and educational programs for adults, children, and educators. She has worked at the Freer Gallery of Art, Jewish Museum of Maryland, National Building Museum, and the Smithsonian American Art Museum. She holds a Master’s degree in Museum Studies from Johns Hopkins University.
