Exhibit: Peaceful Planet

Exhibit: Peaceful Planet

Peaceful Planet presents three accomplished artists’ views of the natural world in different media.  Featuring prints from Richard Hellman,  photographs from Karen Klinedinst, and paintings from Kathryn O’Grady, this exhibit provides visitors with a deeper understanding of the simplicity and complexity of our Earth, and our relationship with it.  

Richard Hellman (https://richardhellmanart.com/) is an award-winning Contemporary Artist/Printmaker turned Wood Carver. Originally from The Bronx, NY, he now resides in the Baltimore area, having taught printmaking at several Maryland colleges and universities. His collections can be found in Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Georgia, Oklahoma, Illinois, and more.

Karen Klinedinst (https://karenklinedinst.com ) is an award-winning Baltimore based artist who uses photography to explore themes of place, nature and the environment. Inspired by the 19th century landscape paintings of the Hudson River School, she creates richly layered landscapes that combine the real with the imagined. She teaches at the Johns Hopkins University’s Odyssey Program, and has been exhibited in locations across Maryland, at the Griffin Museum of Photography, and in the collection of the National Park Service.

Kathryn O’Grady (https://massoniart.com/ogrady/) lives and paints in rural Maryland. She is especially interested in the places where people’s plans for the landscape collide with the riot of life that is there to begin with.  Born in Birmingham, Alabama, her work has been shown in solo shows over the past thirty years in Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, Bloomington, Illinois, Bethesda, and Baltimore. 

The Peaceful Planet exhibit will open on Mothers Day – Sunday, May 8 from 11 am to 3 pm – and will be on view every Wednesday from 1 to 6 pm through June 8, as well as on Sunday, June 12 from 11 am to 3 pm. The exhibit will also be open during public-facing events and by appointment.
