Enter a world unlike any you’ve known when you come face-to-face with the inner landscape of an artist’s mind hidden from view until now.
Face to Face: The Art of Madison Prince, 2004 to the Present opens Saturday, February 29th at 5:00 pm at the Watershed Café in Poolesville. The one of a kind show features an intimate biographical exhibit by Chad Prince, the artist’s brother, including a chronological glimpse into the style, technique, and motifs explored throughout Madison’s artistic career. A collection of more than 60 pieces will be on display through March 28.
Prince, a lifelong resident of Montgomery County, has been drawing and making art all his life, but remains largely unknown to the public. Diagnosed with autism at 4 years old, he is non-verbal, and faces great difficulty in finding effective means of communication within the context of typical social interactions. Prince, now 30 years old, communicates the landscape of his inner world through his art– expressing urgency, energy, humor and joy in ways that challenge assumptions made in the absence of common language. Unseen until now, Prince’s work will finally be unveiled to the public in this inaugural show.
With a current portfolio of over eight thousand original works of art, Madison works alongside Creative Director, Mike Farrell, in order to leverage his artistic talent for a variety of compelling applications. Their unlikely friendship forms the foundation of a visionary model for inclusive collaboration in the world of art and design. Featured along with his work will be the product of such collaborations, including displays by Three Pears Productions, a local design firm, and by ceramist Jennifer Hamilton of Dusty Road Pottery, a member of the Countryside Artisans of Maryland, demonstrating the power of art to transcend barriers in communication and enrich community life.
