 About this Exhibit and the Artists

Maryland Art League (MAL) is a long-standing group of artists first organized in the 1970's. During its many years of existance it has accomplished many goals. MAL has been a supportive group of local artists who promote the arts as well as share their talents and artistic endeavors among themselves and to the public. Members reinforce and encourage each other in their development with critiques and discussions. Another goal has been education. MAL has featured many guest artists who have given talks and demonstrations of their own techniques and their personal journey in the art world. The organization has offered field trips to various exhibitions in the Maryland and Washington DC area. MAL has offered numerous scholarships to graduating high school seniors entering college in an art program. Members work in all art media including oils, acrylics, watercolors, pastels, collage, photography and various sculpture media. Subject matter ranges from realistic to abstract and may include anything from landscapes, portraits, still-life, cityscapes, and animals to nonobjective art. MAL's current emphasis is on displaying its members' art in various venues. If you are an artist who is interested in joing our group, please contact Elaine Hochreiter 310.490.0415.

The Art Ministry

The Woods Art Ministry was created out of the conviction that the arts have an important role to play in the life of the church. Throughout history, the arts have been one of the significant ways that people express and understand religious truth.

The Art Ministry is responsible for art exhibits in the Wood Gallery and, from time to time, offers programs and resources related to the visual arts. These have included workshops, field trips and tours to view significant art, as well as providing visual arts for use in worship (banners, projected images, etc.)
