The Creative Colleagues is a group of seven participating artists:


Elizabeth Steel, Penny Jacoby, Jackie Martin, Pearl Chang, Melanie Grishman, Barbara Gelman, and Barbara Meima will be showing a selection of sculpture, mixed media, and paintings.

The group says that “Creative Colleagues is a group of experienced women artists who have joined together to share our art and our artistic journeys. Some of us have been friends for decades; others have known each other only for a few months. Some of us have been creating works of art since childhood; others began in retirement. Some of us have formal degrees in the visual arts; others have learned through classes, workshops, and personal experimentation. All of us have exhibited our work, some locally and some nationally and some even internationally. We have been influenced by our travels, by nature, by other artists, and by our extensive life experiences. Extensive is the operative word, since we are all in our 70s, 80s, or 90s. We came together to make a supportive space in which we could discuss our work and provide feedback in a less formal way than in the traditional critique group. As our friendships developed, we realized that a group exhibit would give us the opportunity to demonstrate the lasting value of creativity as it enriches the ongoing progression of life. We are grateful to beachKraft Gallery, which has offered us a venue for this, our inaugural exhibit.”

“I am very excited to host this group exhibition at our studio-gallery in Olney,” Caroline Baker, Owner and Curator of the gallery said. “The Creative Colleagues group has a wide range of subject matter and art media to share with the community, as well as substantial years of experience in creating and exhibiting art here in Montgomery County, nationally and abroad.”

See the Creative Colleagues group exhibition at the gallery, Tuesday through Sunday, 11 AM to 8 PM. An opening reception will be held Saturday, February 10, 2 PM to 4 PM.
