PAST: ART: New Gallery - Harmon Art Lab opens it's first show, SAT, Sept 10th - SAT, Oct 1st, Free

New Gallery! Inaugural show features works by Randi Reiss-McCormack & Matt Hollis at Harmon Art Lab
Saturday, September 10th - Saturday, October 1st

About the artists:

"Randi Reiss-McCormack's work has been shown on both coasts as well as in Europe. A prolific artist, an educator, a wife and mother of three, her work involves themes of domesticity mixed with patterns of pop culture and impressionistic vibrancy resulting in a subtle social commentary that embraces the viewer, incites nostalgia, and stirs thought."

"Matt Hollis's work (pictured above) evokes a deep sense of nature, transforming and enlarging it into an artificial realm that gives the viewer a new perspective on how life interacts with itself."

About the new gallery:

Harmon art lab is the creation of artists Peter e Harper and Thomas Drymon. Harmon art lab (HAL) is a creative collaboration that ties art curator, artist and viewer into an interactive dialogue of ideas and engagement. HAL will exhibit the work of two risk-taking artists per month working in a variety of media that will help to redefine contemporary art in the DC area, one as a solo exhibition, the other as a site-specific installation influenced by the space and the content of the artist's own work. This will offer prospects for transformation as each artist creates something temporal and unique to the space.
