Paintings by Angie Magruder
Drawings by Bob Biedrzycki

Angie Magruder, a longtime Reston resident, shows her many talents as an artist in this exhibit at Reston Community Center. Born in Germany, Angie has traveled the world, first as an Army daughter and then as an Army wife, living in 22 different homes across the United States and Europe. Throughout her many moves she has always painted and sketched, adding new dimensions to her artistic skills in each new area of the world.  

Angie has a BA in Education and Art and studied under noted international artists Dong Kingman, Zoltan Zsabo, Gary Akers, John E. Carter and Don Andrews. In addition to the many prizes she has received, she was honored to do a one-woman show at the noted Tubingen University in Germany. 
 
An active supporter of corporate arts programs in Fairfax County, especially in the Herndon and Reston communities, Angie has been involved in many organizations and art guilds during her career. She has taught painting classes in her Reston studio and at the Fairfax Retirement Center in Alexandria, VA. Her paintings have found their way into public and private homes and offices, both governmental and corporate, throughout the world. 

Asked about her multi-faceted art career, Angie says, “More than anything, I love to paint!”

Bob Biedrzycki has worked as a creative director in Boston, Miami, New York and Atlanta, designing catalogs for retail stores from Bloomingdale’s in New York to Marks & Spencer in London. Even while focusing on design and photography direction, his first love has always been drawing, and he has always been fascinated both by line and by the human figure. 

Retirement has given him the time to focus on his desire for figure drawing, line and incorporating his design skills into his work. His work, primarily in pen and ink, can be graphic, with multiple figures at times superimposed over strong black and white backgrounds. Other pieces on a toned stock with both white and black ink, or with backgrounds of gouache, add a dimension of tone, color and depth to his compositions. Whether he is working with a layered graphic design or a toned portrait, Bob says he “tries to capture the essence of my subjects and put them in a designed graphic space.”

Bob has exhibited at the Yellow Barn Gallery in Glen Echo and the Zullo gallery in Massachusetts. Contact him if you are interested in his special kind of portrait work.
