6:00pm - 8:00pm
Hemphill exhibits Thirteen Studies for Painting by Alma Thomas, a member of the Washington Color School. While many art historians have written an almost pejorative narrative of Thomas’ abstraction process, claiming that the artist painted randomly or by intuition, Hemphill Fine Arts’ exhibition attempts to dispel this myth by examining the depth of preparedness required to elaborate Thomas’ aesthetic and the underlying “intellectual power” behind her work.

James Landry’s show The Word Paintings and Music From The Film Blog Photographs features acrylic paintings, color photographs, and a “photoblog” exploring the ideas of size, space, and perspective. Landry abstracts traditional artistic subjects, such as portraits and still-life works, to make the viewer think twice about the ordinary.
