Strange & Beautiful by Teresa Jarzynski

Artists & Makers Studios hosts the work of Teresa Jarzynski in her latest solo exhibit Strange and Beautiful. Fantasy, skewed perspective and other elements of imagination interweave with impressionistic applications of recognizable subjects. Some more strange, some more beautiful, but every piece contains a bit of both for the viewer to take in. By focusing on flowers, inanimate objects, and people from various encounters in life, Teresa challenged herself to transform the ordinary into something more extraordinary. It is on view through August 24; 11810 Parklawn Drive, Suite 210, Rockville, MD.



A Space Between


Shadows by Kelly Postula (Digital Art)

The A Space Between at Del Ray Artisans gallery focuses on shadows, negative space, and often overlooked components of a scene. After two years separated by literally six feet—and many centuries of burying loved ones six feet under—the concept of space gave artists a chance to explore themes of isolation beyond the physical separations of our shared experience. It is on view through August 27; 2704 Mount Vernon Avenue, Alexandria, VA.



Conversations in Color

Martha Spak Gallery presents Conversations in Color, a collective exhibition featuring recent works by Jennifer Duncan, Octavia Frazier, Marthe McGrath and Kay Walsh. Bold, layered and saturated, the art conveys an emotional message each artist has cultivated through years of experimentation and artistic growth. It is on view through August 31; 60 District Square, SW.


Enjoy the weekend!
