April 05, 2013

The Washington County Arts Council has announced its April exhibits, including “A Maryland Decade by Patrick Hiatt” and “The Eye Test 2: Photographs by Benita Keller’s Advanced Photography Class Hagerstown Community College.”

Patrick Hiatt studied art at the University of Wisconsin in Madison and the American Academy of Art in Chicago during the 1960s. After serving in the army, he worked as an engineer and graphic illustrator. Later he enjoyed a successful career as an IT consultant which brought him to the Washington area. Now retired, he is an award winning painter and exhibits regularly in local and regional shows. His work has shown in Wisconsin, Arkansas, Virginia, Texas and numerous galleries in Los Angeles, California and Maryland.

Most recently Hiatt received “Best of Show” for his painting “Rocky Ridge” at the Washington Count Arts Council Gallery, 2011 Juried Community Show and in 2012 the "Valley Art Association Award" for "Times Square" at the 80th Annual Cumberland Valley Artists Exhibition, shown at the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts.

“The Eye Test 2” exhibit will feature artwork by HCC students in Keller’s advanced photography class, “Photography for Public Discourse.” The course teaches students about various aspects of fine arts photography including portrait, event, and street photography with commercial applications.  

Students participating in the exhibition include Bonnie and Daniel Elgin of Hagerstown; Sherry Frey of Chambersburg, Pa.; Stephanie Glover of Hagerstown; Rebecca Hose of Williamsport; George Owens of Chambersburg; and David Stealey of Hagerstown.

The arts council will host an opening reception at its new location, 34-36 S. Potomac St. on Friday, April 5,  from 5 to 7 p.m. The exhibits will run from April 5 to 30.
