Washington Post Review of 2012 WCS

76579

American Night / Neighbor & Orion II. By Herbert Simon. Etching, aquatint, and handcolored, 2010. Ed. 1/20.

This past Friday, The Washington Post published a nice review of our Winter Contemporary Show in their Style section. It was written by staff writer Mark Jenkins, and featured in Galleries review, page C8, along with two other reviews of local DC exhibits. They even used an image of American Night/ Neighbor & Orion II by Herbert Simon, to accompany the article.

 

Some of our favorite quotes from the article:

“…Prints can suggest much with a few lines, sometimes highlighted by blocks of color. Fine examples of this approach include Edward McCluney’s “OSSACIP,” a nude silhouetted against a bright yellow background; Peter Gourfain’s “Winter Light,” a domestic scene endowed with drama by its thick black lines and contrast of blue and orange; and Ellen Nathan Singer’s “Autumn Market,” which depicts fruit, flowers and wooden barrels with seasonal gold and bronze…”

“…Richard T. Davis’s “Hartling Bay,” however, shows that fanatical attention to detail can be just as effective as artful simplification. This photorealist color serigraph of the Nova Scotia coastline appears to capture every ocean ripple, blade of grass and glimmer of sunlight. It’s a simple scene, but with the depth of an entire world.”

We encourage our followers to read the review ( link right here) and then come see our Winter Contemporary Show. The group exhibit remains on view until February 9, 2013. To view the works in our show digitally, check out our website!

And a big thanks to The Washington Post and writer Mark Jenkins for featuring our show and artists!
