Otis Street Arts Project is know for creating a warm, open, creative vibe at excting arts events in Mount Rainier, Maryland, a major hotspot for the arts in the DMV. The exhibition, Co-Exist curated by the incomparable DC arts maven, curator, impressario, life coach, and recipient of the WPA Alice Denny Award, Molly Ruppert furthers that reputation. With her deep connection to the DC Arts Community, Ruppert finds and brings together 3 unique artists bringing an enriching touch to their chosen media.

Glenn Richardson- Carves sculptures from fallen trees

Eric Celarier- Creates sculptures with found, made, and natural materials.

Albert Schweitzer - Recreates society with paint on canvas

Co-Exist looks at the way three artists examine their world using di
fferent materials to create works to express their inner vision

Albert Schweitzer’s paintings use color and image to show human emotions of fear, jealousy, hope, and joy. He exults in the world’s humanity and “the flux between life and death”.

Eric Celarier makes beautiful, elegant sculptures out of our trash. His use of spent electronics mixed with elements of nature and other garbage uncovers “hidden aesthetics”

Glenn Richardson sculpts with a chainsaw. His work begins with the wood which is from fallen tress or trees discarded by society to make room for progress. His work shows a depth of feeling about social issues such as gun violence though he is interested in the weird and playful as well.
