David FeBland at Susan Calloway Fine Arts

March 13, 2018

On view at Susan Calloway Fine Arts Gallery from March 23-April 21, 2018 is David FeBland’s show: Stories Red and Blue.

 

Opening reception is March 23rd from 6:00 to 8:00 pm followed by the artist’s talk on March 24th from 3:00 to 4:00 pm.

 

David FeBland’s work considers issues of privacy, conflict and isolation in contemporary urban life, employing a colorist’s eye and a strong sense of formal compositional structure. His paintings, drawing upon experiences over a wide range of geographical locations, are driven by a conviction that certain behavioral responses to ones environment are universal.

 

An internationally recognized artist, FeBland shows extensively throughout Europe, the UK and the US, where he is represented by galleries in Los Angeles, New York, London, Frankfurt, and Berlin.

 

This is David FeBland's first show at Susan Calloway Fine Arts. 

 

Susan Calloway Fine Arts is located at 1643 Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown.

National Gallery Hosts Exhibition of Heavenly Images

February 13, 2018

The National Gallery of Art is hosting images of Saint Francis at La Verna from February 25 through July 8, 2018. This show is in the West Building, ground floor in gallery 22.

 

The Descrizione del Sacro Monte della Vernia (1612) depicts the monastery and dramatic rocky terrain of La Verna, the site where Saint Francis received the stigmata. The gifted baroque draftsman Jacopo Ligozzi was hired to illustrate the volume and he cleverly designed overslips pasted on 5 of the 22 engraved illustrations in a before-and­-after fashion to demonstrate the changes to the topography since Saint Francis’s time. 

 

Drawing on the Gallery’s holdings of Franciscan imagery, spanning the 15th through the 18th centuries, this exhibition places the Descrizione del Sacro Monte della Vernia within its most significant artistic and art historical context by examining traditional representations of the experiences of Saint Francis on the mountain of La Verna and innovations on traditional Franciscan subject matter characteristic of the Counter Reformation.

 

The exhibition is curated by Ginger Hammer, assistant curator, department of old master prints, National Gallery of Art.

Passes: Admission is always free and passes are not required.
