Loudoun County artists Robert Friedenberg and Jeff Hall were selected by jury to be among the 190 national artists showcasing their work at the 20th annual Bethesda Row Arts Festival, Oct. 14-15.
The festival, considered to be one of the best in the region, displays the work of the country’s top artists.
Friedenberg, of Round Hill, started drawing in college while pursuing his doctorate in theoretical nuclear physics. It’s become a lifelong hobby and now a concentrated passion to record and manipulate his mind’s wanderings. His life’s experiences are woven into the personalities of his images.
