Loudoun County Artist MP Brown Exhibits New Paintings at Sterling Brewery

MP Brown is exhibiting a series of spaceflight inspired new works. MP Brown’s work is visual storytelling. The spaceflight series incorporates text and imagery into a blending of color to create works inspired by the history and lore of the American space program. From President Kennedy’s words challenging a nation to land a human on the moon to the playful attempt at levity by John Glenn just prior to the first American manned rocket flight, the artwork in the spaceflight series is a colorful representation of history.
