The December All-Media Exhibit opened yesterday, “The Street Sense Project” opens today, and starting Saturday, The Art League Gallery is thrilled to host a new exhibit from a special group of artists.
The ceramic art in the IMPART Ceramics Exhibit is by eight artists who are new to the Gallery. They’re all participants in the IMPART program — a collaboration between The Art League and the Wounded Warriors at Fort Belvoir to teach visual arts to Injured Military Personnel, and their escorts and caregivers, with an emphasis on personal enrichment, improving motor skills, relaxed social engagement, and expressive catharsis.
In this month’s solo exhibit, artist Thien-Kim Pham created portraits in the unusual medium of charcoal on canvas. The subjects are all people she’s met who live on the street, and Pham’s somber portraits call attention to their lives.
Portions of sales from the portraits will be donated to related charities, which are listed on the exhibit page.
See below for more images from the Gallery. We’ll have more on these exhibits in the days to come, and please join us next Thursday, December 12, for the opening reception!
