DC is alive again, it’s cooling down and the galleries are in full swing. Here are some openings tonight you should definitely try and stop by. Boxed wine and all = good times.
Hemphill Fine Arts: Journal Book One by Renee Stout. Stout’s autobiographical mixed-media collages are intriguing and beautiful. 1515 14th St NW Opening Saturday 15th.
Adamson Gallery: Not quite basket weaving. Art World Darling Chuck Close exhibits tapestry pieces made from daguerrotypes using a customized digital loom. This exhibit should have something for everyone: old school, new school, and Those-of-You-Who-Have-a-Subscription-to-People-Magazine. 1515 14th Street Opening Sat 15th from 6.30-8 pm
Randall Scott Gallery: Fellow PhotoEspana alum Nathan Baker exhibits his lush large scale photographs entitled Rupture. 1326 14th St NW. Opening Sat 15th 6-9 pm.
A little further afield and not opening tonight but open during the day on Saturday are E. Brady Robinson’s travel photographs at Flashpoint Gallery. 916 G St NW open from 12-6 Tues-Sat. Curated by Chan Chao.
And for the old school lovers in all of us, the incomparable Kathleen Ewing is showing August Sander among others at her new location at 1767 P Street. Open Tues-Sat 11-5 pm.
OH, almost forgot, I would totally be remiss not to mention the sleeper Sunday night opening at the R Street Gallery of buddy Tom Wolff and Tracey Friedlander’s portraits. Check them out at 2108 R St NW. 5-7 pm on the 16th.
Hope to see you afield tonight.
