Haskel’s Palette, a group of eight artists honoring long-time Village resident Doris Haskel, exhibit its work beginning Monday, Oct. 16, through Saturday, Nov. 19, 2023, in the Friendship Gallery.
The exhibition celebrates the life and mentorship of Doris Haskel (1921-2019), who taught art to children and adults in Montgomery County for more than 50 years. For many years, she led a weekly art workshop at the Village Center, where the painters who later formed Haskel’s Palette met. Some members of the group painted together with Doris for more than 30 years. Doris also exhibited her artwork at the Baltimore Museum of Art and the Corcoran Gallery.
The exhibit includes vibrant abstracts, landscapes, and portraits by artists Justin Bobak, Christina Haslinger, Harris Leibergot, Gordon Lyon, Janet Mattson, Pratichi Shah, and Ellen Wilcox. Shah is a resident of the Village community.
Meet the artists during an artists’ reception on Sunday, Oct. 22, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Village Center.
The Village Center is open Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Friday, 9 a.m to 5 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Art in the auditorium is occasionally not available for viewing because of activities in that room.
