Brittany Sims is showing her work at Strathmore Mansion.
When Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, Brittany Sims was studying art at Tulane University. The school was evacuated as the disaster ravaged the city, and when Sims returned months later, she was stunned by what she found. "It was shocking," she said. "People's stuff was everywhere. Things were scattered around the city." Scenes from the recent tornado that devastated Joplin, Mo., brought back memories of Katrina, Sims said, and those chaotic images inspired many of the paintings she's showing at Strathmore this month. Sims, a Kensington native, just completed a six-month residency at Strathmore alongside three other artists. The artists will be showing their works at Strathmore Mansion through Aug. 20, and there's an opening reception…
