Introducing The Art League Gallery’s 2014 Solo Artists!

The Gallery’s schedule for 2014 is shaping up after last month’s jurying for that year’s solo artist exhibits. After reading proposals and reviewing artwork, three jurors chose eight artists to have their own show out of the 35 who applied. The artists will spend the next two years or so crafting work to fill up the solo artist room — but it’s never too early to start getting excited!

“Key Bridge Sunset,” oil by Web Bryant

Web Bryant will be representing Washington, DC at different times of the day in such scenes as Silver Line construction in the morning and food truck dining at night. The jurors called his oil works “atmospheric.” Bryant also won the Potomac Valley Watercolorists’ Award in our August “’Scapes” show —  here’s our Q&A with him then. Bryant said about painting Washington: “I spent more than 20 years on the 16th floor of the old USA Today building in Rosslyn. I looked out over the Potomac River and watched the sun move across this magic city. I want to capture with paint how I feel about this place.”

More previews after the jump!

“Ceiling,” paper collage by David Alfuth

David Alfuth, a long-time art teacher, makes 3-D paper collages incorporating architectural, narrative, and other elements. The jurors praised the surrealist imagery working in multiple layers.

“Dog Days of Summer,” acrylic and mixed media on wood by Courtney Hengerer

For Courtney Hengerer’s show, she hopes to create a “Playground” with her paintings on wood panels.

Here’s the full list of 2014 artists:

Jurors this year were Mary Cook, co-founder of the microWave project and former Target Gallery Director, Samantha May, Gallery Director at Hillyer Artspace, and Dr. Claudia Rousseau, of Montgomery College. You can read more about the solo jurying process and guidelines here and in this blog post.
