AN OPENING reception for the exhibition “Rivers and Memories” with artists E.J. Montgomery and Lilian Thomas Burwell opened at the Brentwood Arts Exchange in Brentwood, Md., on Saturday afternoon, Feb. 4.

THE EXHIBITION features highly developed explorations into the expressive potential of color, space and metaphor. Visually engaging, the exhibition’s two- and three-dimensional works play on a careful balance between fluid and static motion that gives the viewer a sense of deep meanings created through time and place.

EACH OF THE works carries a sense of anticipation, excitement and nostalgia for what is, what was, and what is to come. Timed to coincide with Black History Month as well as Women’s History Month, “Rivers and Memories” brings together these two influential artists to form an exhibition and for talks.
