Painter, sculptor, November juror Anki King was impressed with the quality of work submitted for Feast!. “There were reasons to include absolutely ever submission in the show, but that’s not how curating works,” she told us.  Read about her approach to art , and her observations about her prize-winning selections in this month’s Juror Profile.


Fairy Tails, Feathers, & Scales

“Anya in Color”

With whimsy and wit, charm and charisma, printmaker Veronica Barker-Barzel brings to life creatures from beloved stories and new imaginings. Influenced by fairy tales, folklore, and mythology from around the world, her solo exhibit features magical beings with fins, fangs, fur, and everything in between. Fairy Tails, Feathers, and Scales is on view in the Gallery through December 6. In this video short, Veronica talks about printmaking and her solo show.



Antonia Ramos Miguel: The Break of Rules

“Still Life with Glass Ball,” oil on canvas, by Antonia Ramis Miguel

Antonia Ramis Miguel returns to Watergate Gallery continuing her approach to Constructivist art  which combines the strength of structured line along with color and abstraction to create a dramatic visual effect that arranges the parts of a subject into a whole. The influence of her native Spain, particularly the use of saturated color, is however still visible in her work; on view through November 30 at the Watergate Gallery, 2552 Virginia Avenue, NW


Howard Mehring: Brilliance

“Brilliance,” by Howard Mehring, c.1957, magna on canvas
