The Fantastic World of Ronald Markman: A Mini-Retrospective, March 10 – April 23. Inspired by 1930s cartoons and popular culture, Ronald Markman explores intellectual and artistic journeys through literature, historic events, personal observations, and the absurdities of life in this colorful collection of drawings, paintings, and sculptures. This exhibition combines Markman’s dedicated academic training with George Grosz and Josef Albers with humor and the limitless possibilities of a nonsensical, fantastical world.
March 22: Art Express Lunchtime Tour. Art Educator Lucinda Edinberg will give a gallery talk on the Ronald Markman exhibition from 12:15 to 12:45 p.m.
March 28: St. John’s tutor David Townsend and artist Ebby Malmgren will lead a seminar related to the exhibition at 7 p.m. Space is limited. Registration is required. Call 410-626-2556 to register.
