Home Away From Home opens at DISTRICT Arts Saturday, March 4, with a reception from 5 – 7 pm, and is on view through March 26; 15 North Market Street, Frederick, Maryland.
The Wind We Cannot See
“The wind can be fierce and graceful, sublime, and holy,” says Arlington, Virginia-based artist Sharon Malley. “It is our first breath, the source of earth’s weather, and yet elusive, transient, and intangible.” The Wind We Cannot See, Malley’s first solo exhibition at Touchstone Gallery, features paintings and mixed media works that evoke her deep reverence for, and connection to, the forces of nature manifested in movements of air. It is on view through March 26, with an opening reception Saturday, March 4 from 4 – 7 pm; 901 New York Avenue NW, Washington, D.C.
Oleg Kudryashov: A Tribute to the Life of An Artist
The iconography of Russian artist Oleg Kudryashov’s prints, whether it is a composition, relief or construction, focuses on the scenes and cityscapes of post-war Moscow. He created some of his strongest work from memory while living in London between 1974 and 1997. The Gallery Neptune & Brown presents Oleg Kudryashov: A Tribute to the Life of An Artist, an exhibition celebrating 40 years of showcasing the late artist’s work. It is on view through April 8; 1530 14th Street NW, Washington, D.C.
Enjoy the weekend!
