Artist's Proof Explores Monochrome April 14th

April 3, 2018

Artist’s Proof will be exploring the intricacies of color in ‘The Theory of Color’ - a two-part exhibition this Spring.

 

Presenting only white monochrome sculptures and paintings in April, they consider the philosophical, poetic and spiritual associates attributed to a color that is often perceived as ‘negative space’.  The paintings and sculptures presented in this exhibition predominately use white or black, which often draws attention to the other aspects of the artwork such as the techniques, materials, textures, and forms used by the artists. Each artist engages their technique to this concept of working within the monochrome, reducing their art to its elemental form. 

 

At the opening reception on April 14, 2018, from 4:00 - 6:00 pm, Washington, D.C. based artist Craig Cahoon will be conducting a workshop on the monochromatic interference paint he employs within the presented series.

 

Artist Demonstration to begin at 4:30 pm.

Kreeger Art Talks

January 30, 2018

It’s the museum you might forget is right around the corner. Well, around several corners but at 2401 Foxhall Road NW, so close.

 

Former home of David Lloyd Kreeger and Carmen Kreeger, the Kreeger Museum was designed in 1963 by Pritzker Prize winning architect Philip Johnson with Richard Foster. 

 

The Kreegers' love of art, music and architecture is reflected in their collection, with works from the 1850s to the present. The Impressionists are represented by nine Claude Monet paintings, as well as works by Auguste Renoir, Alfred Sisley, and Camille Pissarro. From his early work to the end of his life, Pablo Picasso's career can be traced through his paintings at the Kreeger. Other 20th century European artists include Edvard Munch, Max Beckmann, Jean Dubuffet, Wassily Kandinsky, and Joan Miro.

 

The permanent collection also includes outstanding examples of traditional art from west and central Africa and Asia.

 

The Sculpture Terrace features works by Jean Arp, Aristide Maillol, Jacques Lipchitz, Henry Moore, Isamu Noguchi, and Francesco Somaini.

 

Two upcoming talks, one on Kandinsky February 17th, and the other on Art in Embassies March 22nd, are worth a visit.
