OK, GENTLEMEN. You’ve waited patiently for your turn. Last month, we brought you our Ladies issue—it is ladies first, after all—and this month, we present our “Gents” issue, celebrating all things masculine. Of course, there’s Father’s Day on June 16, but there are so many more reasons why it’s great to be a guy this month. With the summer season underway, the long, sunny days can be filled with backyard cookouts, baseball games, camping trips, fishing excursions and so much more. To gather information for this issue, we looked to the experts: the men of Bowie! You might even recognize a few faces. Check out profiles from men we admire. Read about the best place to go to get your bicycle road-ready. We’ve also included a look at the sleek 2019 Jaguar XF Sedan.  So, gents, enjoy this issue full of inspiring men, from community leaders and artists to authors—because this month is all about you!

"Free Our Minds" (Bob Marley) by Rebecca Crouch

ART IN ALL ITS FORMS CAN BE MOTIVATING AND INSPIRING, BUT OVERDUE RECOGNITION ART GALLERY FOCUSES ON SHARING LOCAL AFRICAN-AMERICAN ARTISTS FROM THE COMMUNITY. The gallery recently celebrated its one-year anniversary since moving to its location in Bowie.  “We had Rebecca Crouch come in and do a social-conscience series," owner Derrick Thompson says of a recent exhibit. "She picked 10 different people for the 'Talented 10' project. We told her we were looking for something current and socially relevant. She chose people with a special message.” Derrick and his wife, Jacqueline,  chose to open the gallery in the Bowie location when they realized that not enough African-American art was being showcased in the area. “We are gearing up to do an emerging artist show this summer. We deal with local artists and choose one or two that we are going to represent," Derrick says. "We normally have about four to six different styles and different techniques to come to the show. We try to reach our artists, especially those who are trying to stay current in the world and social events."  Overdue Recognition also does custom framing, which Derrick handles. Each painting inside the gallery is framed. As an expert in conservation framing, he can properly preserve art so that it will stay pristine and hold its value. 15402 Emerald Way, Bowie 301.383.2875, OverdueRecognition.com

Dr . Dar ian Senn-Carter Dr. Darian Senn-Carter grew up in Baltimore and attended the University of Maryland College Park. He is a professor at Anne Arundel Community College and is a Bowie City Council Member. He is also an ICF-certified coach. “I am a change agent committing my life to connecting others with resources to succeed. Education is really our best investment in ourselves and our future. Education has the power to transform our individual lives and connect one another to transform our society,” he says. WHAT IS THE BEST-KEPT SECRET ABOUT BOWIE? The best-kept secret about Bowie is the gorgeous parks and trails. I use trails right here in Bowie that are connected to so many communities and parks. There are more than 70 miles in Bowie and 17 parks. Even though I run often, there are always so many different places to see. I enjoy going to the parks to have picnics and enjoy nature. Many of the parks do the summer concert series as well. YOU ALSO TEACH AT ANNE ARUNDEL COMMUNITY COLLEGE AND ARE THE COORDINATOR FOR THE HONORS PROGRAM. WHAT DO YOU HOPE TO IMPART ON THE STUDENTS  YOU WORK WITH? Have the courage to allow yourself the opportunity to explore your interests and to explore your talent. Enjoy the journey. When our talents and interests converge, we not only find our passion but we find our purpose. WHAT IS ONE LIFE LESSON THAT RESONATES WITH YOU? Life is full of beauty and opportunity if we allow ourselves to seek it. I have learned that it is so important to have a growth mindset. If you approach each and every day with the understanding that you can learn something new, you will learn something new every day.

JONATHAN SIEBOLD HAS ALWAYS HAD A PASSION FOR CYCLING. He was born and raised in Crofton and worked at another bike shop in Crofton before he started at Family Bike Shop. “I started riding a bike when I was a kid, and I never really stopped. I started racing around the time I was 14 years old. I have been doing this the entirety of my life,” Jonathan says.

The FADE

what it is There are many different types of fades, but ultimately a fade haircut is one that tapers in length the further down you go on the back and sides, meaning it isn’t trimmed to just one standard length all around. The level of fade (low, mid or high) depends on what point the shortest part of the hair begins to fade into a longer length. ASK FOR Taper fade, low fade, mid fade, high fade or skin fade


The man bun + what it is This popular style is good for many types of hair as long as you have a lot of it. You’ll need length in the front, back and sides generally long enough to at least brush your shoulders. KEEP IT CLEAN Be sure to keep your sideburns and neckline trimmed even as your hair grows out.

thick + curly long

The quiff

+ what it is Closely related to the pompadour, the quiff haircut requires longer hair in the front and shorter hair in the back. The longer hair in the front is brushed upward and back from the forehead and away from the face. This look can be sleek and shiny for a classic look or texturized and matte for a modern take. ASK FOR Short sides and a long textured top. Be sure enough hair is left on top to brush back instead of standing straight up.
