Trustees of the Earth - April 2022

A RiverArts Judged Show, April 2022    

Imagine strolling down a hidden path in a native forest, where countless opportunities arise to view the beauty of our natural resources – no exhaust fumes or litter, no loud machinery, a tree overhang glistening as its branches twist and reach high to the sun. Utopian? No, simply an area of nature unspoiled. We are all trustees of the earth, and as we celebrate Earth Day this month, artists are encouraged to submit their own interpretations and depictions of nature in art, imagined or representational, wild or tamed. One or a maximum two works of art in all mediums will be accepted.

Exhibit Judge: Bradford Ross

Brad studied Visual Communications/Illustration at Montgomery College, in Rockville Maryland, and then at Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) in Baltimore Maryland, where he graduated with a BFA in 1991.  Between 1994 and 1995 he took evening and summer classes at the Schuler School of Fine Art in Baltimore. Over the years he has gained priceless drawing and painting knowledge in workshops taught by nationally and internationally known artists like Carolyn Anderson, Tim Bell, George Strickland, Abigail McBride and Teresa Oaxaca, as well as through three decades of independent study and research. He is an award winning Plein Air painter, popular drawing and painting instructor at the Academy Art Museum in Easton, MD, and, as of 2021, professional portrait artist.
