Conner Contemporary Art is now CONNERSMITH. The gallery presents DC native Lisa Ruyter Let us now Praise Famous Men. Ruyter’s acrylic paintings derive from 1930s and 1940s era photographs. Her oeuvres lament the reduction of people who once lived to mere photographs. More info here.
Right next door to CONNERSMITH, G Fine Art will present the work of local artist Patrick McDonough. In his multimedia exhibition, all I want is to be a happy man, McDonough connects his work to Mark Linkous (aka Sparklehorse) resulting in an exchange between the visual artist and the deceased musician.More info here.
INDUSTRY Gallery promises gallery goers a Baroque Soirée. On view will be the work of Borek Sipek, a renowned designer, artist and architect who served as the court architect of the Czech Republic during the 1990s. More info here.
SCRAP-DC presents their second annual juried group show at the Tubman-Manhan Gallery where artists were required to create work using 75% recycled materials. This year’s theme centers around creating a shelter, a “Fallout Shelter” to be precise where DC’s scrap is reused and re-purposed. See website for hours. More info here.
