Now Open: Three New Exhibits!


Playground / The Feminist Movement in Art / May All-Media
Through June 2

Opening reception & meet the artists:
Tonight! May 8, 6:30–8:00 pm

Tonight’s the opening reception for three exciting new exhibits here at The Art League:

In “Playground,” painter Courtney S. Hengerer has created abstract paintings with freedom, spontaneity, and light touches of color that fit the exhibit’s name.

The Feminist Movement in Art” asked our members to draw inspiration from the feminist artists of the 1970s, with reflections on women’s lives and experiences in the present day. Amanda Jiron-Murphy, gallery director at the Hamiltonian, juried this exhibit. You can find it on the blue walls of the Gallery, identified by the blue tags.

And in the May All-Media Exhibit, you’ll find a mix of artwork in all media, as selected by juror Mira Hecht, a DC artist and painting teacher at the Corcoran.

Tonight’s your chance to see these new exhibits and meet the artists behind them! The opening reception runs from 6:30 to 8:00 pm, and as always, it’s free and open to the public. Here’s a sneak peek at the Gallery for May:
