Artist finds Frederick unique with its vistas, architecture, community

Walt Bartman founded the Griffin Art Center in Frederick, as well as Studio 322. He teaches at studios around the world yet says Frederick is unique and a great place for artists to be inspired. The Frederick community has also presented support for the arts, with a growing number of studios and galleries. His home in Jefferson is filled with paintings of cows, landscapes, people and more. He holds a master of fine arts degree from American University and had a Fulbright Grant to study overseas.
