Born and raised in Baltimore, Michael A. McCoy picked up a camera as a young teen. It wasn't until his two tours of duty in Iraq and the loss of his mother, though, that McCoy took up photography as means of focus, expression, and escape. His instinct for light and composition combined with his curious mind and engaging personality produce tender yet powerful portraits of fellow veterans combating PTSD, individuals supporting the Black Lives Matter movement, men in barber shops, youth at play, and mother and fathers with children. In other words his portraits, and his camera, are his voice and they speak of both the struggles and the joys of life and deployment. 

 

Michael A. McCoy's work has been featured in Time, Rolling Stone, and The Baltimore Sun. In 2017, Time named McCoy one of the "12 African American Photographers You Should Follow Right Now."

Glen Echo Park Partnership is pleased to present I Draw the Line: Oil Paintings by Robert LeMar. In this exhibition of paintings, LeMar experiments with different approaches to outlining, while seeking to maintain a strong sense of realism.  Although done entirely with oil on canvas, every painting is really about the drawn line. Color also plays a major role in the work, as it conveys light and form. Even so, it all starts with a line drawn on canvas. In this work, LeMar seeks to champion that line. Le Mar was the recipient of the Park View Artist Award at the 2017 Labor Day Art Show at Glen Echo Park.

The Glen Echo Park Partnership is pleased to present The World in Infrared: Landscapes by Sheila Galagan. Local photographer Sheila Galagan offers a selection of photographs shot using infrared capture, an unusual method that when printed in black and white produces striking dark gray skies and white vegetation. Galagan's photographs, mostly landscapes, are taken in local natural settings often with some man-made components. Most of her images are shot with a digital camera modified to respond to near-infrared light. There are also some images taken the old-fashioned way with black and white infrared film. Some of the digital images have textures applied to them to add a further sense of depth. The film images have been printed using the lith printing technique, which uses certain papers and chemicals to produce a similar effect to textured digital images. Galagan has taught photography in several places, including Glen Echo Photoworks and Montgomery County Public Schools. She is also a member of f11, a Women's Photography Collective, which exhibits locally.
