Foundry Gallery

"Celebrate the Child in You"
Works by Donna McGee

Wed, June 29 through Sun, July 31 Opening Reception: Fri, July 1, 6-8pm

Artist and educator Donna McGee creates acrylic paintings in the American abstraction tradition. McGee is inspired by Pablo Picasso who said, "Every child is an artist, but the problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up." Viewers are invited to experience a visual interaction to celebrate the child in you.

McGee's work is well known in the Washington, DC area. Her award winning work has been exhibited in New York and is in public and private collections. Her surfaces initially portray calmness, but they betray the possibility of implosion, as the many facades give way to the unknown beneath.
