PAST: ART: "People and Places: Four Distinct Views" at the Arts Club of Washington featuring works by Dana Ellyn and Three Other Artists! FRI, May 3rd - SAT, June 1st, Free

"People and Places: Four Distinct Views" on view at the Arts Club of Washington
On view Friday, May 3rd - Saturday, June 1st

The Arts Club May show features works by four artists - Dana Ellyn, Oenone Hammersley, Juan E. Hernandez Gonzalez and Paul Reuther - in the Monroe and MacFeely Galleries. Curated by Pat Moore, Chair, Arts Club of Washington Exhibition Committee.

Dana Ellyn - D.C. artist Dana Ellyn documents the political, social and cultural events of the day with the humor of a satirist, the mind of an informed citizen and the color and brush strokes of an engaging artist who is serious about her work. Ellyn's unique view of religion has made her bring her own torment upon herself; insults, damnations and death threats. And, with her political work, she is story-teller, a modern day town crier, documenting current events.

Oenone Hammersley - Best known for her rainforest and wildlife paintings, Oenone has spent the last three years working on this collection of semi-abstract oil paintings on canvas titled Magnificent Trees. Read more.

Juan E. Hernandez Gonzalez - This body of work depicts people working in the streets, markets and neighborhoods of Tegucigalpa, Honduras created from memory. Read more.

Paul Reuther - The pictures in this exhibition were completed between 2009-2012. During this time Paul was artist-in-residence at New Pacific Studio in Kaiparoro, New Zealand and Arte Studio Ginestrelle in Assisi, Italy. Read more.
