The Mitchell Gallery held its Members' Preview Reception for its latest exhibit, The Fantastic World of Ronald Markman: A Mini-Retrospective, on Friday, March 10th. The elegant reception, with wine and hors d'oeuvres, offered guests a first-look at the exhibition.  

Inspired by 1930s cartoons and popular culture, Ronald Markman explores intellectual and artistic journeys through literature, historic events, personal observations, and the absurdities of life in this colorful collection of drawings, paintings, and sculptures. This exhibition combines Markman’s dedicated academic training with George Grosz and Josef Albers with humor and the limitless possibilities of a nonsensical, fantastical world.

The “Ronald Markman” exhibition runs through Sunday, April 23rd. For more information, visit Sjc.edu/annapolis/mitchell-gallery.
