Printed Art: The Potomac / The Influence of Fauvism
Through June 1
Opening reception: Thursday, May 14, 6:30 pm

This is the month to observe some local color at The Art League.

“Local” because printmaker John Gosling has captured the people and places around Alexandria in his solo exhibit, “Printed Art: The Potomac.”

And “Color” is the star in our group exhibit, “The Influence of Fauvism.” The Fauvists were a 20th century group of “wild beasts” famous for their lively, colorful brushwork. This month’s exhibit was juried by Alison Sigethy, a glass artist in the Torpedo Factory.

“The Influence of Fauvism”

John Gosling’s linocut relief prints in “Printed Art: The Potomac” draw on the artist’s knowledge of history, architecture, urban planning, and his own personal experiences. Be sure to check out the “Faces of Alexandria” series. You can read more about his artwork on the exhibit page.

We hope you’ll join us next Thursday (May 14) for the opening reception!
