Carol Brown Goldberg at Addison/Ripley

Addison/Ripley Fine Art will be presenting Extravagant Edens, a colorful new exhibition of recent paintings and drawings by Carol Brown Goldberg. The exhibition will be on view from March 12 - April 14, 2016. An opening reception for the artist will take place on Saturday, March 12, at 5:00-7:00 pm.

Drawing on the more organic style of her earlier work, this new exhibition of recent paintings and drawings by Carol Brown Goldberg fills a space between the joyous Impressionism of Henri Matisse, particularly the cutouts and later works, and the Washington Color School, exemplified by Morris Louis, Gene Davis, Ken Noland, Tom Downing, Paul Reed and Howard Mehring.

Characterized by bold, exuberant color and imagined biology, the artist has already been paired with Matisse at the Phillips Collection in an intimate exhibition, curated by Klaus Ottoman in 2015. We are delighted to include in this exhibition one of Goldberg's paintings from that exhibit, "Maggie on My Mind".

With the legacy of the Washington Color School an important one for this city and the artist's long career here, it is unsurprising and gratifying to see some measure of that Washington Color School legacy in Goldberg's work.

Addison/Ripley Fine Art is located at 1670 Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown.
