“Faces”

Updated on 01/22/2020 2:37 PM

Arts on the Green presents “Faces,” an exhibit featuring works by the North Bethesda Camera Club (NBCC) as juried by studio portrait photographer Jill Bochicchio, along with three dimensional works by Lilija Lakickaite. The exhibit is on display January 31 through March 23, 2020. The public is invited to meet the artists during a free Artists Reception on Thursday, February 6 from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Whether they be grand or intimate portraits or everyday images of people, featured works in this exhibit showcase the broad range of emotions that can be conveyed by facial expressions in humans and animals. The exhibit emphasizes cultural diversity and inclusion.

Featured three-dimensional artist Lilija Lakickaite is a native of Lithuania who now lives and works in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, where she is a florist and clay sculptor. She creates whimsical portrait pieces as well as interesting pot and vase shapes.

The North Bethesda Camera Club has been recognized locally and nationally for the wide range of photographic expertise of its 140 members, including professional photographers, advanced amateurs, and beginning photographers. One of the oldest camera clubs in the Washington, D.C. area, NBCC’s monthly programs include presentations by well-known photographers, as well as tutorial sessions on technical aspects of photography. The Club also sponsors field trips and holds monthly competitions for all forms of photography, including traditional black and white and color prints and digital images. In 2002, Nature's Best Photography magazine initiated a Camera Club category for its fifth annual International Photography Competition, and NBCC was pleased to be the first place winner of this prestigious award in its inaugural year.

Please note that some of the artwork is for sale and all images are copyrighted by the artists.
