Art Shows at Rare Bird Coffee
We appreciate creativity in many different facets, including the visual arts. Our café space was designed with the intention of sharing such art from local artists in a three month rotating art show to exhibit their work, bringing life to our walls and recognition to these very talented creators. We hope that you enjoy their work as much as we do when you visit us.

Maureen is an abstract painter and teacher in the Washington, D.C. area. She explores memory, local landscape, and fractured realities. Maureen uses acrylic, oil pastels, graphite, and ink on canvas or paper. An art historian, Maureen reframes the tradition of landscape painting with intuitive painting methods. Using a playful palette and layering of referential shapes, Maureen’s work rejects pressures to depict neat and tidy landscapes. Instead, she complicates the truth of our unique perspectives and recollection of the composition of familiar space.
