Artist Biography
 
Adrienne Dixon was born May 25, 1989 in the small town of Avenue, Maryland. Growing up on her family’s farm Adrienne often found herself outside exploring nature, trying to build and craft things, fascinated with creation. These childhood fascinations led her to the fine arts; a love of art galleries, museums, and the power art can have over its viewers.

In 2011 Adrienne earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting from Savannah College of Art and Design. Her time in school lead to a continual practice in art making as a studio artist. Adrienne works in a range of different media such as watercolor, acrylic, and hyper-realistic oil paintings. The artist is also working on a number of conceptual mixed-media works, which are comprised of materials such as glitter, wood, acrylic paint and Resin. These works are playful, colorful, and shiny reflecting on the materialistic culture of western society.
Adrienne Dixon’s work has been displayed in numerous art galleries on the East Coast, as well as being in many private collections across the nation.

Currently Adrienne is making a variety of works in her studio, managing Off the Square Gallery, and teaching fine art classes to all age groups at Yellow Door Art Studio in Leonardtown, Maryland.

This Art Gallery is proof of the power of one woman’s hard work!

Candy Cummings had a vision to create an exhibit space in the Lexington Park Library, which would display the artwork of local artists.

The Library Board agreed that this would enhance  the library experience by exposing library  customers to the beauty and power of original art.

In 2005, the Lexington Park Library Art Gallery was created and through Candy’s hard work  and dedication her vision became a reality.


In 2014, the St. Mary’s County Arts Council agreed to take over the coordination of the Gallery and Candy donated funds to create an Arts Council Library Gallery Fund which will provide for its ongoing support.

THANK YOU to Candy Cummings!

One woman who has truly made a difference  to our library and to our community.
