Mini Solos at Touchstone Gallery
Mini Solos Exhibit
at Touchstone Gallery in Washington, D.C. was a wonderful exhibit that featured WCADC Artist Lynne Grossman. Her work was beautifully displayed an stood out amongst more overwhelming pieces nearby. Her textured landscapes captured serenity and vitality, drawing the viewer closer. The depth of her pieces closed the gap between reality and imagination. The exhibit was nicely put together, featuring paintings, drawings, photography, and collage. Most of the artwork displayed were done by women artists, such as Tina Learned a mixed media artist whose work has a "world beat" feel to it, used alot of repetitive imagery such as circles and organic shapes to create her paintings. The layering of imagery and color really made her work pop and grab your attention. The works of Nancy Abeles has a pop art feel to it. Encompasing repetitive imagery to bring the work full circle. Her sue of the female form as the focus, draws the eye in to take a look at the interesting dialogue created between the images within her work. Deborah Saks, collages are images that reflect moments of whimsy, girly fun, and gives a different view of a womens perspective in collage form. Pictures from the exhibit below.
This was an exicting exhibit that was well attended. The exhibit ran from August 4-27, 2011. The Touchstone Gallery is located at 901 New York Ave., Washington,D.C.
