Each artist has a unique way of approaching a new piece of art. Inspiration can come from a thought, an object, a landscape, a figure, or the first mark made on a surface. The summer group show at Gallery 322, titled "Sketchbook", provides a window into the process of artmaking. 

As we celebrate our 10th Anniversary, Gallery 322 showcases the process of creating art with an exhibit that includes sketches, photos, and written explanations as well as the artists' work. 

The artists of Gallery 322 hope that in sharing our process we will begin a dialogue between the viewer and the artist. Sharing our methods and materials with visitors is one way an artist-owned gallery can inspire a greater understanding and enjoyment of art.

Gallery 322 has been showing fine art in a 19th century building in downtown Frederick since 2009, and exhibits paintings, sculpture and assemblages by artists Michael Douglas Jones, Jan Kaufman, Linda Kirvan, Ann Schaefer, Russ Schofield, Anne Gibson Snyder, Roberta Staat, and Homer Yost. 

The public is invited to the opening reception for "Sketchbook" on July 6 from 5 to 9 pm. The gallery is open Fridays 4 to 8 pm, Saturdays and Sundays 12 to 5 pm, and during the week by appointment.
