The Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County (AHCMC) is pleased to celebrate the opening of Meditations and Epiphanies: Otherworldly Devices in Painting with a public reception at the Betty Mae Kramer Gallery and Music Room on Friday, December 6, 2019 from 6-8p.m. Meditations and Epiphanies: Otherworldly Devices in Painting explores abstract realities, inner awareness, and otherworldly aesthetics through the works of four local artists: Judith Benderson, J. Jordan Burns, Kelly Posey, and Terry Sitz.  

“The artworks in this exhibition uniquely focus on both the visitor’s experience and the medium of brush-in-hand painting,” says Suzan Jenkins, CEO of the Arts and Humanities Council. “They are atmospheric and transcendental, taking the viewer on a journey into another worldwhile also demonstrating the power of this particular art form to celebrate the beauty of the imagination.”
