Emerging Light: Paintings by Denise Dittmar & Students September 6 to October 6, 2019 // Park View Galley @ Park View Gallery at Glen Echo Park

Emerging Light features paintings by long-time Glen Echo Park instructor Denise Dittmar and her students from Emerging Young Artists at the Yellow Barn, Young Creative Spirit, & other classes. The paintings in this show are strongly influenced by artists who work with light, including the classic Impressionists, as well as Walt Bartman and John Murray at The Yellow Barn. The detailed brush strokes and vibrant colors emphasize movement in each painting. Audiences will appreciate the reverence for the Impressionist genre by Dittmar and her students. Art Walk and Opening Reception: Friday, September 6, 6 to 8pm

Visual Poetry: A Collaborative Exhibit of Image and Word September 6 to October 6, 2019 // Popcorn Galley @ Popcorn Gallery at Glen Echo Park

The Glen Echo Park Partnership presents Visual Poetry featuring the work of Photoworks artists who were challenged to ponder the poetry in their images and to assign words to the photographs they chose for this exhibition. Fourteen photographers, Photoworks faculty and students, have agreed to challenge their vision by exploring two creative art forms – images captured through a lens and words that can describe, challenge and illuminate. Photoworks is the resident digital and darkroom photography studio at Glen Echo Park. Observe a mix of images and words that immerse the audience in the photographers’ challenge. Guests can think, ponder, and write in the quiet space set aside for reflection. Art Walk and Opening Reception: Friday, September 6, 6 to 8pm

Line of Sight: Paintings by Rebecca Coffin Anderson Ceramics by Jennifer Quie Coffin @ Waverly Street Gallery
Sep 8 – Oct 5 all-day
Line of Sight:  Paintings by Rebecca Coffin Anderson Ceramics by Jennifer Quie Coffin @ Waverly Street Gallery

Line of Sight refers to the direction in which a person must look in order to see a particular object. This conjunction of ceramic and watercolor works explores the interplay between nearness and distance, drawing out the impact of direction, and perspective on perception. Jennifer Coffin’s ceramic elements present the detail, texture, and immediacy of form experienced in entering a landscape. Rebecca Anderson’s paintings layer the effects of distance and proximity with the sense of atmosphere and space in abstracted landscapes seen from above, close to the water’s edge, through a copse of trees, or from afar.

In this joint exhibition, proximity, vantage point, and aperture transform the viewer’s experience of materials, objects, and landscapes. Coffin’s clay bodies and Anderson’s paintings are formed from foraged and found organic matter and are reconstituted as abstracted landscapes. Dimension and topography emerge from fossilized shells, mineral clay and grapevine charcoal.

Freeze Frame: Ethan Rochmis September 6 to October 6, 2019 // Stone Tower Gallery @ Stone Gallery at Glen Echo Park

Freeze Frame: Ethan Rochmis September 6 to October 6, 2019 // Stone Tower Gallery @ Stone Gallery at Glen Echo Park

Freeze Frame is an exploration into the interplay between materials and their environment by mixed media artist Ethan Rochmis. The science-inspired work is composed using variations of natural environments paired with water, ink, and paper that lead to an infinite number of expressible realities. The artwork is what Rochmis calls “Ice Inks,” an original style that he has practiced for 3 years. In each environmental setting the frost translates its own character and affects the expression of the material. We are excited to debut Rochmis’ first exhibition in this unique style. Experience the phenomenon when ink meets ice. As a bonus, Rochmis will also display his burl bowl collection. Art Walk and Opening Reception: Friday, September 6, 6 to 8pm
