Jan Kirsh’s Artichoke has been selected for inclusion in a national juried exhibition opening June 25, 2014 at The Art Gallery, University of Maryland, College Park. The show, organized by Maryland Federation of Art (MFA), features 2- and 3-dimensional art by Maryland residents and MFA members. Kirsh was one of 107 artists selected out of nearly 700 applicants.

Kirsh, whose art made its debut in 2008, is also known for her work as a landscape designer. Her sculptures feature vibrant fruits and vegetables which can be displayed indoors or out. Kirsh notes, “My work provides opportunities for me to pay homage to nature and to appreciate the beauty of familiar forms. It also reminds me to not take life too seriously, to enjoy the whimsy in the day to day.”

MD Art @ College Park runs June 25 to August 2, 2014. A reception will be held July 11, from 6 to 8 PM, with awards presented at 7 PM. The Art Gallery is open 12 to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Friday (closed July 2 through July 5). The gallery is located at 1202 Art Sociology Building, University of Maryland, College Park, 20742. Ann Shafer, Curator of the Baltimore Museum of Art, will serve as juror for the show.
