Brian Truesdale

Brian Truesdale's bold abstract work is featured at the Blanche Ames Gallery during the month of November. His solo show, "Hidden Wonder," will open with a reception and artist talk on Sunday, November 5 from 12:30-2:00 p.m. The show will run through November 26. Please call 301-473-7680 for gallery hours beyond the reception.

Brian is largely a self-taught artist, taking night classes at the Delaplaine Visual Arts And Education Center and studying privately with established artists in the Frederick area. "My paintings are a continuous search to find the meaning from the noise and texture that is built up in layers of under-painting, then finding and developing the focal point, like a beacon in the chaotic noise of life. I believe in balancing outbursts of spontaneity, which bring the painting alive, with deliberate refinements that bring meaning to the mess."

Mr. Truesdale has exhibited his work throughout the Maryland and DC Metropolitan regions. He has had individual shows at the Delaplaine and Frederick Community College in addition to several group shows. His work has been exhibited in Frederick and Montgomery Counties, Washington, D.C., Arlington, VA, Wichita, KS and soon in Hudson, NY.

Brian explains, "Why do I Paint? I paint because I need to paint; there is something inside me clawing to get out."
