Glassworks: A 10 Year Retrospective @ Popcorn Gallery at Glen Echo Park

The Glen Echo Park Partnership presents Glassworks: A 10 Year Retrospective, celebrating the 10th anniversary of artist collaborations in glass with resident artist Paul Swartwood, director of the Park’s glassblowing studio. The show includes solo works from select series of Swartwood’s work over his 10 years at Glen Echo Park, as well as the work of six additional artists. Glassworks artists’ unique designs and techniques have been admired by many far and wide. Experience this unique artform by seeing the latest works and techniques in person, and meet and speak with the artists at the Opening Reception. Swartwood and his artists demonstrate that blown glass is an active, thriving, marketable art in which people take interest and support. (Opening Reception: October 12, 2019, 6pm-8pm)

In the Night Garden @ Stone Tower Gallery at Glen Echo Park
Oct 12 @ 11:00 am – Nov 17 @ 6:00 pm

Amy Sabrin’s bravura approach to color is on full display in her new exhibition, In the Night Garden. Inspired by late-autumn plein air painting excursions to fading community gardens, Sabrin returned to her studio to further explore this motif. Her increasingly abstract acrylic and watercolor paintings address themes such as the cycle of life, beauty in death, and all the secret things we cannot see at work just below a garden’s surface or in a garden at night. Sabrin’s vibrant palette is inspired by the radiance of the October sun warming up loamy dirt, zinnias glowing in the dusk, shadows cast by the full moon, and the ochre-tinged stalks of drooping sunflowers. Experience the joyous colors, bold composition, and glowing light of Sabrin’s work. (Opening Reception: October 12, 2019, 6pm-8pm)

“Glimpses” New Watercolors by Patricia Williams
“Glimpses” provides a tantalizing look inside the artist’s life. The vibrant watercolors take full advantage of the medium’s unique properties to breathe color and light into personal objects and rooms. The works are intimate, yet the viewer is kept at a distance by transparent washes and drips of color that partially obscure the images. The abstract quality of the drawing and application of paint raises the question of what is real, what is imagined and what is remembered.
GALLERY C
“On the Bright Side by Pamela Reynolds” by Pamela Reynolds
Color —vivid, fluorescent color, unfettered and free, is the subject of Pamela Reynolds’ most recent series of abstract paintings. Contrasting bold linear pattern with freely-wrought drips, splatters and pours, these paintings were inspired by urban signage, graffiti, psychedelia, tropical textiles, and the inner workings of the artist’s own mind.
