exceptional virtual art exhibits in a variety of media
BlackRock presents changing exhibits throughout the year to provide opportunities for the creative expression of artists and the active engagement of audiences of all ages.
The series of solo, group, juried and themed exhibits showcase works in a variety of media by both emerging and established contemporary visual artists from across the Mid-Atlantic region.
** COVID-19 NOTICE **
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, federal guidelines, and state/county restrictions,
BlackRock is not currently hosting in-person gallery exhibitions or events.
We look forward to the day when we can experience in-person exhibits with our friends again!
The biennial juried exhibition INK IT: Contemporary Print Practices seeks to highlight current fine art print practices by featuring the best graphic work by artists from across the Mid-Atlantic region who choose both traditional and nontraditional printmaking processes to communicate images and words.
The 84 works on display in the exhibition were selected by this year’s juror Susan J. Goldman, an artist, master printmaker, curator, filmmaker and founding director of both Lily Press® and the Printmaking Legacy Project®.
Each year during the month of March, BlackRock celebrates Youth Art Month (YAM) by presenting exhibits featuring art by students from area schools. This year’s online exhibit features works by 56 student artists who attend elementary, middle and high schools located across Montgomery County.
The theme for YAM this year is "Art Connects Us." Sponsored by the National Art Education Association and administered by The Council for Art Education, YAM is intended to emphasize the value of art education for all children and encourage support for quality school art programs.
