July 2021 Open Exhibit

“Standing Guard” by Jane Podesta; photography on metal

Our July Open Exhibit, juried by painter and printmaker Toni-Lee Sangastiano, is now on view! Open exhibits are a great way to view the breath of mediums and styles of our member artists. See it in-person in the Gallery, through Sunday, August 8, or view it online.



Yasmin Bussiere: Eastern Light

“The Golden Storm” by Yasmin Bussiere

Mixed media artist Yasmin Bussiere works with metallic paints, pens, acrylics and oil pastels to fuse grandiose landscapes with spiritual reflections. Eastern Light, her solo exhibit, celebrates the beauty of the Central Asian landscape and is inspired by her memories living and traveling across the continent. Her work is organic, instinctive and transportive.



What’s Going Around: Lou Stovall & the Community Poster, 1967-1976

P Street to the People – Jefferson Place Gallery et al. 1971 by Di Stovall; multiple color silkscreen on paper

When D.C.-based artist Lou Stovall founded Workshop, Inc. in 1968, it became the source for colorful posters used to promote concerts, exhibits, and community events around the city. What’s Going Around: Lou Stovall & the Community Poster, 1967-1976 highlights the artist’s iconic works from that era along with those of Di Stovall (his wife), Sam Gilliam, Gene Davis, Paul Reed, and frequent collaborator Lloyd McNeill; on view through July 17 at Hemphill Artworks, 434 K Street, NW.
