It's Steaming

Guido Harari's Photography at Italian Embassy Dec. 8

December 5, 2019

The Embassy of Italy in Washington D.C., in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute, cordially invites you to the opening of “Icons”, an exhibition by photographer Guido Harari on Monday, December 9, 2019 from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm.

 

Guido Harari has met and photographed the greatest music legends: B.B. King, David Bowie, Frank Zappa, Patti Smith, Kate Bush, Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen and - among the Italians - Luciano Pavarotti, Fabrizio De André, Paolo Conte, Gianna Nannini and Ennio Morricone.

 

Lou Reed said about him: "I'm always happy when Guido takes my picture because I know it will be a musical picture. And it will also have some poetry and feeling to it.”

 

With over 40 photographs taken over a period of 45 years, the exhibition features portraits of Italian and international musicians, as well as photographs of other Icons who have distinguished themselves in different fields, from cinema to fashion, literature, design, architecture and science.

 

On the occasion of the exhibition opening, Guido Harari will engage in a conversation revealing the stories behind each picture, and the highlights and drawbacks of capturing the unique personalities of his special subjects. The panel will be moderated by Dr. Dwandalyn R. Reece, Curator of Music and Performing Arts at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History Culture and will also feature Frank Stefanko, photographer and author of the books "Bruce Springsteen. Days Of Hope and Dreams," and "Patti Smith. American Artist". 

Embassy of Italy is located at 3000 Whitehaven Street NW.

Sited on over half and acre of land backing to the wooded grounds of the Hillwood museum, the home was built in 1992 by noted modernist architect Heather Cass. 

 

The open and airy interior is characterized by soaring ceilings and countless windows and skylights taking full advantage of the stunning woodland backdrop.

Georgetown Galleries on Book Hill Fall Walk Sept. 7

August 28, 2019

The Georgetown Galleries on Book Hill will have their Fall Art Walk on Saturday, September 7th from 5:00-8:00 pm. The focus this year is on abstract work, with solo shows by artists working in a variety of media. Seeing the exhibits at the same time will give visitors an opportunity to

compare and contrast the work, making for a thoughtful and entertaining evening.

 

The Georgetown Galleries on Book Hill is an association composed of six fine art galleries located on upper Wisconsin Avenue in the art and antiques district of Georgetown. The association was established to inform visitors about this vibrant neighborhood which offers the largest concentration of fine art galleries in Washington, DC.

Galleries in this group exhibit works from modern to contemporary in a range of styles and media including paintings, sculptures, drawings, photography, contemporary glass masters, cutting edge and emerging artists, Washington area-based printmakers, and artists from across the globe.

 

Carousel is Natasha Karpinskia's fourth solo exhibition at Calloway Fine Art. The show features pieces from multiple series that interplay form and composition while maintaining a captivating color palette. The pieces are curated to have the viewer move between pieces as if rotating on an axis of a carousel while images of the surroundings flash and elements linger from one piece to the next. The collection illustrates Natasha’s mastery of monotype through color, composition, and technique.

 

Addison/Ripley Fine Art welcomes Nancy Sansom Reynolds back to the gallery with her new series, “unwinding” inspired by rolled and unrolled origami paper. Like that paper, each of these sculptures has a lightness, and almost fragile quality which defies the presumed characteristics of the shaped plywood in which the artist works. As before, Sansom Reynolds cites as inspiration the clarity and sharpening of senses that life in the desert has afforded her and her work.
