November Exhibitions at The Art League



“Oyster Feast, 2020” by Daniel Horowitz

All manner of edibles—from literal to abstract depictions—are captured in this delightful group show where our artists express the evocative and communal nature of food. See it in person, or online. Join us for the opening reception via Zoom on Thursday, November 12 at 6:30 p.m. EDT. RSVP here, and bring a friend!


David Carlson: Flattening Time

“Row Man Whoa Man” by David Carlson

“My painting process is a meditation on consciousness and time,” says abstract artist and League faculty member David Carlson. See his latest works in Flattening Time, his solo exhibition at Fred Schnider Gallery of Art; on view by appointment through December 20th, 888 N Quincy St #102, Arlington, VA.



Hamiltonian Artists Presents

“Railroad Tracks and Trains of Thought” by Madeline A. Stratton

Multidisciplinary artist and Hamiltonian Artists fellow Madeline A. Stratton uses vibrant color, irregular form, and multimedia textiles to represent personal spaces from memory in her solo exhibition Welcome Back. It is on view by appointment through November 28 at Studio 1469, 1469 Harvard St NW.


“Accumulations (21-24)” by Amber Eve Anderson

Eve Anderson assembled every advertisement that she viewed on Instagram over a one-week period for This Is Who I Am Now, her first Hamiltonian Artists exhibition. Her work functions as a playful, funny, and poetic critique in order to explore how identity is reduced by consumerism. It is on view by appointment through November 28 at H Space, 1932 9th Street NW, #C102 (Enter from 9 1/2 Street).

Join Stratton and Anderson for a virtual artist talk on Saturday, November 7, at 7:00 p.m.; register here.




“The Gem, 2019” by Antonio McAfee

Area artists Billy Friebele, Roxana Alger Geffen, Rania Hassan, Sebastian Martorana, Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann, Antonio McAfee, Brandon Morse, and Johab Silva mine the many meanings of “trace” as noun and verb, and engage the themes of displacement, connectivity and transformation in this group exhibition at The Kreeger Museum. Rich in representation and abstraction, TRACES encompasses painting, photography, mixed media, sculpture, sound, and video, and includes several site-responsive installations; timed entry viewing through January 21, 2021, 2401 Foxhill Road, NW.


Enjoy your weekend, wear your mask.
