“Friend Me” / December All-Media
Through January 5
Opening Reception: Thursday, December 11, 6:30 pm
We hardly need to tell readers of this blog that 2014 has been a busy year at The Art League.
We’ve celebrated our 60th (!) Anniversary all year — at last week’s Artfête party, October’s Portrait & Figure Festival, the Influence & Inspiration Exhibit at the Athenaeum, and a year of special exhibits in the Gallery — starting way back in January with the Community Canvas and “Abstract Expressionism Revisited.”
December’s exhibits are now open, and our artists are closing the year on a strong note!
Marta Staudinger, a curator and artist based in DC, juried the all-media exhibit.
Whitney Staiger’s exhibit of jewelry explores online personas, offline relationships, and the assumptions we make about others. For “Friend Me,” Staiger interviewed dozens of her Facebook friends and then created modern cameos incorporating their profile pictures, vital stats, and quotes from their interview.
Come in and see these exhibits! And you can check out our tree full of ornaments, too.
