Get There Now
Church Street Studios presents the Art of Sara Ann Gallagher with an opening reception Friday, November 6, 2015 from 6:00 -9:00 pm.
Former Georgetown resident, Gallagher, now living in North Palm Beach, Florida, will showcase a series of twenty four paintings in cooperation with Q Street Fine Art.
A graduate of the School of Visual Arts (New York), Sara Ann uses acrylic paints to feature life in all of its complexities as her canvases feature colorful and geometric abstract designs.
Says Gallagher, “I feel that what's really inside of us is hidden by our outer appearance. We create a boundary much like being inside of a glass box where everyone can see you, but not get past the walls surrounding to see what's inside. For many that has become a way of survival. Our disguises allow us to surrender only what we feel must be revealed.“
The artist has paintings in many private collections, including actor Ethan Hawke, Kim Litton (Palm Beach) and others i Kansas City, DC, New York, Palm Beach, Jacksonville (FL), and Warrington, VA.
Church Street Studios is located at 1777 Church Street in Dupont Circle.
DTR Modern Galleries is pleased to welcome artist Matt Devine and his new collection of work. The free opening reception will take place on Friday, November 6, at 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.
Devine's painted steel sculptures are categorically abstract with the idea of organized chaos and bringing in light and shadows. He works with metals like steel, aluminum, and bronze to create his sculptures that appear remarkably weightless, mounted to walls or as freestanding sculptures.
The exhibit runs from November 6 through November 30.
DTR Modern Galleries is renowned for its selection of the Modern Masters, such as Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Joan Mirό and Salvador Dalí, along with celebrated Post-War and Contemporary artists, including Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Hunt Slonem, Robert Mars, Rainer Lagemann, and James Verbicky. Offering extensive expertise and client services, DTR Modern excels at building collections for both new and seasoned collectors.
DTR Modern Galleries is located at 2820 Pennsylvania Avenue in Georgetown.
