Jan. 31-Feb. 25: A Sense of Place
The Dennis and Phillip Ratner Museum in Bethesda presents a new collection today that includes pieces by eight different artists. A Sense of Place features works in oils, pastels, watercolor, and mixed media. Each artist expresses his or her own interests, but the collection shares an underlying theme of location, with subjects varying from boats in a harbor, to the Capitol, to scenes from abroad.
