Local artist Dorothy Fall has been busy since we were first introduced to her in 2013. The fruits of her latest labors are now on exhibit through October 15th.
The exhibit at the 410 GooDBuddY gallery at 410 Florida Avenue NW features 31 works, large works in oil bar to smaller prints: monotypes as well as etching and woodcut monoprints. They include abstract portrayals of the bark patterns of different trees.
“In my travels I have been entranced by the indigenous trees from each country I visit,” says Fall. “I study their branches and roots coming out of twisted pock marked trunks, spreading their tendrils on the forest floor. I feel that trees are inhabited by mysterious spirits.”
The exhibit is called Transitions.
“In my current work I am exploring their transition from stationary entity to trees in motion,” says Fall. “Transitions also involve the vision from what we see to my interpretation and beyond.”
Dorothy Fall has been exhibiting in the Washington area and overseas for many years, but this is among the most varied and largest of her shows. She says she gladly accepted the help fellow Forest Hills artist Joan Danziger, who arranged the exhibit.
“Joan spent hours specifying where and how the art works would be placed,” Fall says. “Then she worked with the person hanging the works, so that they would be exactly as she specified. The result is outstanding. It is my best exhibition, one that I am proud of. I hope that Forest Hills residents will see it.”
