Welcome to Artful Weekend, our guide to fun and interesting ways to enjoy art in person or virtually.
This weekend: July shows at the League; Lou Stovall’s retro posters at Hemphill; and a reception celebrating two new WSLP exhibits.
July 2021 Open Exhibit
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
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
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.
Opening Reception for Our Washington, D.C. and Richard G. Gray: Landscapes
Join American Painting Fine Art for the opening reception of two new exhibits: Our Washington, D.C. features city scenes by members of the Washington Society of Landscape Painters. Richard G. Gray: Landscapes highlights works by the centenarian plein air painter and WSLP member. The reception takes place Saturday, July 10, from 5 – 8 p.m. at Salt & Pepper restaurant in the same building as American Painting Fine Art, 5125 MacArthur Boulevard, N.W.
