Prismatic Motion by Keeley Rae

Icarus by Keeley Rae; Oil

Step into the lively world of June Solo Artist Keeley Rae‘s latest collection, Prismatic Motion. Here, she diverges from her signature quiet stillness and muted hues for a striking exploration of life’s colorful dynamics. Her artwork captures subjects in a playful dance of twists, tumbles, and floats, each movement carrying a sense of grace and power. Rae has created a joyous gathering space where viewers can share in the jubilation of life’s exuberant rhythms.

June exhibits at The Art League are on view through July 7.

Artomatic, a sprawling, local art fair, accepts everyone who applies to show in it. Artomatic 2024, held this Spring in Washington, D.C ., featured over 800 artists. In this Athenaeum show, three representatives of the Gallery selected several artists they had not been familiar with prior to visiting Artomatic. This exhibition features these artists and explains why the curators felt they merited wider recognition. Curator’s Select: Artomatic 2024 is on view through August 4, with an Artists’ Reception on Sunday, July 7, from 4–6 p.m.; 201 Prince Street, Alexandria, Virginia.

 

 

PROGRESSION

Multiple Exposures Gallery presents PROGRESSION, a new fine art photography exhibition by MEG members.
The exhibition features a sequence of photographs, with each one chosen for its relation to the previous image. The relationships among the 45 included images may be based on composition, color, geography or other characteristics—the choice was left to each of the 15 contributing artists. Exhibition visitors are invited to observe each image as it appears in the sequence and consider what the connection to the previous image might have been. PROGRESSION is on view through July 28; Studio #312 in the Torpedo Factory Art Center, 105 North Union Street, Alexandria, Virginia.
