Art League instructor Rosemary Luckett has a new exhibit of drawings, open through March 2 at the Ramp Gallery at McLean Project for the Arts! For the hours and location, click here.

“Virginia artist Rosemary Luckett makes works that spring from many diverse sources of inspiration, from wild American landscapes to Dutch paintings, to surrealism. Pulling these disparate factions and forces together into images that serve as metaphors for American culture and commerce, she explores and alludes to the connections she sees between and altered terrain and the absent people who have transformed it. Both playful and at the same time deadly serious, these images present a powerful commentary on contemporary life.”

Rosemary is teaching two classes at The Art League this winter: Sculpture From Scrap, which started Sunday, and Collage: Art of Transformation, which starts tomorrow (January 23) and runs for six weeks.

For this installment of “Art Bites,” we look into the diptych of America Remembers/The Lives by Hernán Murno in the July open exhibit. Murno’s strong, graphic lines are reminiscent of early American Abstraction art of the 1940s. American Abstractionist work rose from a time of political unrest in response to WWII, and looking at Murno’s piece, you have the feeling that the aesthetic choice was not only inspired by the abstract movement but also reflective of today’s unique political tensions.
