Pop: Sucker  - Cory Oberndorfer
presents objects of innocence in an age of maturity, as they have shattered or set over time. Delicious colors of paint provide a thin mask over hardened cement. Broken lollipops reveal the fabricated nature beneath the surface of the subject. Minimal in their shape, form and color, these pieces do not ask the viewer to consider the work itself, but their own nostalgia.

North West - Decoy
is a compilation of paintings and stories inspired by DECOY's life as an artist and art educator in Washington, D.C. She sites the children that she works with as a huge blessing - from picking them up after school to learning how to roller skate in Anacostia Park. She truly believes in them and is constantly inspired by their creativity, strength and style.
