Our neighborhood artists are never still. They are busy creating and showing their work. Here are some updates on artists we’ve featured in Forest Hills Connection:
From Deborah LaCroix: “I am pleased to announce that my painting, “Saving Your Place,” has been juried into the group exhibition to be held at the Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art in Augusta, GA (506 Telfair St)… The opening reception will be on September 8, 2017, from 6-8pm and the exhibition will run through October 13, 2017. So stop in if you are in the area!
“Also, save the date of Sunday, October 22, 2017, when I will be having an opening reception at the LaCroix Gallery from 1 to 5 p.m. for my ‘Works on Paper: Archived and Recent.'”
Milton Shinberg: “I had a brief show connected to the Dumbarton Concerts in May. Now I’m working on a series of DC ‘monumental fragments’ for a solo show August 2018 at the Art League of Alexandria gallery. I’m hoping to end up with twenty-plus, but the work will emerge as it needs to. Not a fast process and quite a challenge.”
Karin Lithell: Her exhibition titled “Home Sweet Home: On the Move” opens at the Art League on November 9th and runs through December 3rd. The works are on “human migration from different perspectives and times….” The opening reception is Thursday, November 9th from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
And you can still find works by Lithell and seven other local artists at Soapstone Market. The Van Ness Artists Collective launched their first-ever art show in June, and their works will be on display until the end of August.
Setsuko Ono: “I have a series of three exhibitions coming up in early 2018 taking place in London. The exhibitions will highlight a selection of my paintings, feature several of my public sculptures in virtual reality, as well as two of my steel sculptures: Harvest Moon and Migrants. I continue to work in collage, painting and steel welding out of my studio in northwest Washington, DC.” View her work at setsuko-ono.com.
Dorothy Fall: “Since my solo show in September, I have moved my studio from Mt Rainier back to my home. To my delight everything fit, even my press and very large flat files. And my space compares favorably to the one I left. It is a happy environment. Above all, this studio is now accessible nearby to people wishing to visit.
“During my four years in Mt. Rainier I had three solo shows: BlackRock Center for the Arts, the Cosmos Club and Architect Kendall Dorman’s gallery 410 GoodBuddY. “Boundless: Age and Creativity” was a four-person exhibit at the Brentwood Center for the Arts. There was representation in group exhibits: McLean Project for the Arts, Greater Reston Art Center. Marlboro Gallery at Prince George’s Community College and others.
“It is good to work at home. My art is evolving from the large tree works to abstract monoprints of bark textures and other subjects. I look forward to showing it in Forest Hills.”
