Two Blue Cities by Kathryn Mohrman

Woman in a Doorway-Jodhpur by Kathryn Mohrman

In Two Blue Cities, at Foundry Gallery, photographer and Art League member Kathryn Mohrman captures the many blue-hued buildings she encountered during her travels to India and Morocco. “In many cultures, blue represents spirituality and prosperity, as well as protection from the evil eye,” the artist says. “It’s no surprise, then, that citizens of Jodphur in India, and Chefchaoen in Morocco, have painted their buildings blue over many centuries.” Two Blue Cities is on view through February 25; 2118 8th Street, NW,
Washington, D.C.

Wish You Were Here by Medina Roberts

DC city central by Medina Roberts

“I’m speaking out through my work as we are not talking enough, not doing enough, not informing enough about mental health and addiction,” says Medina Roberts about her exhibition Wish You Were Here at Gallery Underground. Her series of large-scale paintings depicting DC’s City Center include the words “Wish You Were Here,” painted in dedication to Syd Barrett, the original front man of Pink Floyd, who, in 1968, left the group after his mental and physical health struggles due to heavy drug use. Roberts is donating a portion of her sales from this show to the Addiction Policy and Practice Program at the Georgetown University Master of Science department. Wish You Were Here is on view through February 23; The Shops at 2100 Crystal Drive (2120-A Crystal Plaza Arcade), Arlington, Virginia.

 

Enjoy the weekend!
