Val Lewton Memorial Exhibition at Katzen Arts Center

June 20, 2017

"Val Lewton From Hollywood to Breezewood," a memorial exhibition of the artist's work at Addison/Ripley is on display at the Katzen Arts Center at American University through July 13, 2017. The show includes works from the artist's estate and from the gallery archives that span Lewton's long career. 


This retrospective of Val Lewton brings it all to bear: Lewton’s lifetime in front of the canvas, his knowledge of color, his unerring command of the paint-loaded brush and his certitude about how best to structure a painting. Lewton was born in California, the son of a film director, and moved to Washington to work as an exhibit designer at the Smithsonian American Art Museum (then the National Collection of Fine Arts). His paintings use the artifacts of traffic and run of the mill objects—cars, trucks, roadways, semi-demolished buildings, and paint cans—to create improbably beautiful and personal compositions.


The Katzen Arts Center is located at 4400 Massachusetts Avenue, NW.
