Potomac River Artists Guild Exhibit: “Visions of a Group”

The Washington County Arts Council, Inc. opens “Visions of a Group,” a show that will feature the artwork of the Potomac River Artists Guild.

The “Guild” will have a month-long show at the Washington County Arts Council (WCAC) gallery at 34 S. Potomac Street in Hagerstown, MD March 4–29, 2016. Entitled “Visions of a Group,” the exhibit will feature the art of the Guild’s regional artists in various subject matters, mediums and styles. An opening reception will be held at the gallery from 5–7 pm on Friday, March 4.

The members of the Potomac River Artist Group (PRAG) explore many avenues of artistic expression on paper, from realism to abstracts. Our show is a collection of the diverse talent and the variety of expressions reflecting the talent and continued growth and progression of this dedicated artist’s group. The collection of works promises to have something for everyone.

PRAG was founded in 2000. The purpose of the group is to support emerging artists, display their artistic creations for the public and foster members’ art knowledge through educational experiences and sharing of art information among members.

The first public show was held at the Old Opera House in Charles Town. Each December since then, members have displayed art there. The group also holds two shows a year at the War Memorial Building in Shepherdstown.

Today’s PRAG is a diverse group of talented artists. Members range from founding artists to today’s emerging painters. The art training of members ranges from self-taught to Bachelor’s Degrees in art. Creations range from abstraction to realism to renditions similar to the Old Masters. The variety of artistic expressions is a treat for any show visitor.
