Action and Reaction by Mark Goldman @ Sandy Spring Museum

Action and Reaction by Mark Goldman @ Sandy Spring Museum |  |  |

On exhibit January 9 – March 1, 2020

Action and Reaction by Mark Goldman is an exhibit centered on the two most important parts of sports photojournalism: action and reaction. It captures the instantaneous intensity, athleticism, and success created through highlighting game action of area professional and collegiate level sports teams, while also revealing the competitiveness, heart and emotion behind each player’s reaction. An accomplished photographer Mark utilizes his skills in photography, to reveal the in depth knowledge of sports it takes to photograph picture-perfect moments in such a fast-paced, competitive environment. He demonstrates his knowledge of a variety of sports by being one step ahead of the game action by carefully selecting proper placement, studying each sport, and watching the important interactions between players and coaches. The exhibit draws parallels and displays the equal level of importance between action and reaction to convey the complete story of the game.

Mark will share more about his experience in sports journalism at History Happy Hour: Wire Guys and Shooters on January 17th.

Art Dolls: Figurative Sculptures That Tell a Story @ Sandy Spring Museum
Jan 9 @ 10:00 am – Mar 1 @ 4:00 pm
Art Dolls: Figurative Sculptures That Tell a Story @ Sandy Spring Museum |  |  |

On exhibit January 9 – March 1, 2020
Reception: Sunday, January 12, 1 pm – 3 pm

This exhibit features the work of students enrolled in doll making classes at Montgomery College taught by Wendelin Daniels. The students explore mixed media art and the human form through the design and creation of original art dolls. The technique taught in the class generally involves making the head, hands, and feet out of air dried clay. The body of the doll is soft-sculpted over a wire armature. The dolls span a wide range of persona, from portrait dolls of historical figures to fantasy dolls, and everything in between. Adorned with their distinctive costumes, accessories, and props, art dolls convey their own individual personality and story. Unlike dolls that are manufactured as children’s toys, art dolls are unique, one-of-a-kind figurative sculptures.
