Art on the Walls

The New Deal Cafe provides a venue for local artists to exhibit and sell their work. We have a showroom and glass display cases, and every other month new artwork is featured. Join us at a reception to meet the creative talent behind the next exhibit.

If you're an artist, we'd love to talk to you about having a show at the cafe.

The cafe's art exhibits are mounted by the New Deal Cafe Art Committee and sponsored by the Friends of New Deal Cafe Arts with support from Prince George's County. Your tax-deductible donation to FONDCA supports art at the cafe.

Photographs by Michael Smallwood and Mark Wamaling

As the language or vocabulary of photography has been extended, the emphasis of meaning has shifted from what the world looks like to what we feel about the world and what we want the world to mean.
-- Aaaron Siskind

The photos if the exhibit represent the world of two artists who have known each other for many years and share an interest in nature. As artists both have worked in various mediums throughout the years but they have used photography to capture their vision of the American landscape as they have experienced it through their travels across the country.

June 2014

A public reception for this exhibit will be held on Sunday, June 8th, from 6pm to 8pm.

In conjunction with the 10th Annual Greenbelt Green Man Festival, Art that reflects the love of Nature and appreciation of the Pollinators has been collected from area artists for this exhibit. Meet the artists and share your thoughts on the works and on the nature of Art and the Art of Nature. CHEARS hopes this exhibit will inspire more of the urban dwellers to see these most vulnerable creatures as our partners in the bountiful harvest.

The Green Man Festival and Celebration is funded and staffed by CHEARS, the Chesapeake Education, Arts, And Research Society and it community of Volunteers.
