Scientist Francois Le Gall has First Solo Exhibit

Gallery A is currently showing works by the artist Francois Le Gall, in his first solo exhibit “Multiple States,” closing February 8, 2014. 

Inspired by his international background and work as a scientist working to reduce poverty, Le Gall took his fascination with art to a much bigger scale in 2010 when he began to paint. His work utilizes simple gestures that generate complex visual results--and brilliant abstract imagery. Although Le Gall’s work first, engages the eye, each piece calls the viewer’s imagination to peer into and through the lines to a place that exists within the depths of the works. All are invited to come see the dynamic and forceful works by artist Francois Le Gall.

CORRINE RANSON: "CERF VOLANT" AT GALLERY A


Corinne Ranson’s series of mesmerizing paintings are being exhibited at Gallery A. The works in her show, “Cerf Volant”, capture the relationship between the known and the unknown. Corrine expertly conveys the comfort of familiarity and the anxiety of mystery by placing collages made out of photographs on backgrounds of random color.  The individual elements - form, color, space, and texture – of the pieces have recognizable qualities. When they are merged together they produce compositions of irrational images that require serious contemplation. By bringing the spirit of both the real world and the metaphysical world into consciousness, Ranson’s intellectual paintings encourage the viewer to develop a deeper understanding of the universe’s transcendental existence.


Corinne Ranson: "Cerf Volant" will be on exhibition through August. Gallery A is open Tuesday - Saturday from 11a.m. - 5p.m.

Judith Judy- “Beyond the Real” presented by Alex Gallery


Alex Gallery is currently showing 35 of Judith Judy’s incredible landscapes.  Local artist Judith Judy has mastered the ability to translate nature’s expressive power onto canvas.  In her show “Beyond the Real,” Judy captures the mystifying feelings of nature’s overwhelming and fantastic beauty.  Judy’s luminous paintings combine layers of oil paints with materials such as gold leaf, to become breathtaking compositions.  While the paintings’ images are grounded in nature, Judy’s scenes transcend their earthly physicality and take on a heavenly aura. 



Judith Judy: “Beyond the Real” will be on display until July 13.  The gallery is open Tuesday-Saturday 11a.m.-5p.m.

Foundry Gallery Exhibit: "Room for Blue"


ROOM FOR BLUE
 NEW WORK BY DONNA K. McGEE

EXHIBIT DATES: WED, OCT 31 - SUN, DEC 02, 2012
OPENING RECEPTION: FRI, NOV 02, 2012 6:00 - 8:00 PM
LOCATION: 1314 18TH STREET, NW, WASHINGTON, DC 20036
REGULAR HOURS: WED - SUN NOON - 6:00 PM

"Room for Blue"

ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
  
McGee’s medium and large-scale abstract works reveal an exploration in compositional qualities as well as a palpable sensitivity to palette. The intellectual yet profoundly emotive approach to painting emerges from McGee’s extensive background in early childhood education in the arts. Her paintings have won awards and are found in private collections in the US, Europe, and in numerous corporate establishments throughout Washington, DC. Donna K. McGee treats viewers to the wonder and richness of colors and uses color to create atmosphere and emphasize forms. The imagery that is present in many of the pieces is highlighted by the use of the color blue which speaks eloquently in a language all its own. There is much that is exciting in this collection, and the overall impression is one that allows the audience to feel themselves in the role of an adventurer, daring to venture further and to see more clearly. The result is sure to speak to both the head and the heart, and remain a lasting memory for those who see it. 
EXHIBITING IN GALLERY II

In addition to the main Gallery, Foundry Gallery II features member artists exhibiting work that has not been shown before at the Foundry.
