Event Details

The Arts Program at University of Maryland University College invites you to explore a new exhibition by Baltimore artist Mike McConnell. A recent resident studio artist at the Motor House in Baltimore’s Station North Arts and Entertainment District, McConnell often turns to nature for inspiration for the vivid visual stories he tells. He uses paint in a collage-like way, cutting out shapes with vibrant colors on handmade wood panels, paper, and found material. A 1975 graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art, McConnell worked as an illustrator for more than 30 years before focusing on his fine art. In 2016 he won the President’s Best of Show award for the Third Biennial Maryland Regional Juried Art Exhibition for his painting Bear Carver. He also won a 2016 Maryland State Arts Council Individual Artist Award and was a 2017 finalist for the 13th Annual Bethesda Painting Awards.
