'Observations of Form' at Susan Calloway Fine Arts Gallery


"Observations of Form," photographs by Paul Jett & architectural watercolors by Michael Hampton will be on view at Susan Calloway Fine Arts Gallery from October 17-November 15, 2014.

Opening Reception is Friday, October 17th from 6:00 - 8:00 pm.

The relationship between the work of Michael Hampton and Paul Jett is one of both harmony and contrast. Hampton's watercolors highlight the absolute symmetry and precision of neoclassical architecture, which emphasizes exacting classical line and proportion. Jett's photographs capture flora he comes across while taking walks in the woods-like dangling tree limbs or Spanish moss. Yet both artists demonstrate the power of simplicity, the impact of a clean line, and the drama of using negative space. These qualities bring cohesion and unity to their very dissimilar subject matter.

Susan Calloway Fine Arts Gallery is located at 1643 Wisconsin Avenue. Tel: 202.965.4601
