Frederick County Art Exhibit Comes to Campus

FREDERICK, Maryland—Hood College will host an exhibit by members of the Frederick County Art Association (FCAA) in the Whitaker Campus Center Gallery Dec. 6 through Jan. 6.

“The Annual Frederick County Art Association Members Exhibition” will include dozens of objects by painters, photographers and three-dimensional artists residing in the Frederick County community. The gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily, and there will be a reception Dec. 13 from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

Since its founding in 1979, the FCAA has committed itself to encouraging growth, interest, and participation in the visual arts to its membership and the community. The nonprofit organization was formed by a small group of like-minded artists and has grown to more than 70 members, representing all aspects of the visual arts. The FCAA is responsible for the burgeoning interest in the arts throughout Frederick County by its sponsorship and presentation of exhibitions, classes, scholarships, festivals and the establishment of the Delaplaine Visual Arts Center, a grassroots-effort that was spearheaded by dedicated supporters in the 1980s. Today, the FCAA continues to develop learning and exhibition opportunities for their membership and the surrounding community. For more information about the FCAA, visit www.fcaamd.org.

The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public. For more information, contact Michelle Schulte, gallery director, at schulte@hood.edu or 301-696-3285.
