Passageways Art Studio Visit: Marla McLean

During the Open Studio event on December 4, 2011, I did a series of videos of my fellow artists to give the public a peak into the kind of artwork that we do at Passageways Artists Studios. During the next few weeks, I will be posting a video of one of the artists so you can learn more about them and their specific mediums.

About Passageways Artists Studios:

Passageways came together in 1991 when a group of local artists found a large open space for rent in conveniently located Riverdale Park, Maryland. The artists rolled up their collective sleeves and constructed ten airy studios – learning to make drywall partitions, and other construction tasks. Four of the early members are still active in Passageways.

Passageways functions as a cooperative, providing: a congenial working environment for creative artists; an opportunity to interact, collaborate, and learn from colleagues; and an opportunity to show work with other members of the group. The various members work in painting, drawing, printmaking, mixed media, photography, stained-glass, sculpture, tapestry, quilting and fiber arts – wherever the muse directs.

We host an open-studio event twice a year – in the spring and in the fall. We heartily invite you to come to the open-studio to see the latest work of our artists, and chat with them about art, while enjoying light refreshments.

This week’s featured Passageways Artist is Marla McLean. Enjoy!
