10 Years of Silver Works: Looking Back and Forward Looking @ Popcorn Gallery Glen Echo Park

The Glen Echo Park Partnership presents “10 Years of SilverWorks: Looking Back and Forward Looking” by SilverWorks Resident Artist Blair Anderson. This exhibition displays a new collection of the silversmith’s works as well as a retrospective of the last nine collections, featuring a piece or photo from each. Anderson’s latest collection is a riff on her last 30 years of work. More than just wearable art, Anderson infuses her work with meaning. Each piece telling a story, making a connection to the potential wearer. Using relics, unconventional materials, as well as beautiful gemstones from around the world, this collection digs deep at the human condition, pokes fun at politicians, tackles social justice and honors science fiction all in beautiful adornments. In addition to student work, the exhibition will feature this year’s Exnihilo Residency Winner Noha Nader. Anderson first opened her studio in November 2009 with just three students in her Silver Saturday workshop. This year – ten years later – SilverWorks will have offered over 100 classes and workshops with a team of 10 instructors.

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.

Plein Air Workshop with Valerie Craig @ Sandy Spring Museum
Oct 25 @ 9:00 pm – Oct 26 @ 4:00 pm

Capture the beauty of autumn light on canvas while painting in the historic village of Sandy Spring. Master plein air artist Valerie Craig will emphasize simplification and organization of shapes, use of color temperature, atmospheric perspective and the benefits of painting on location. Students will learn what to select and what to omit to create a strong design. Participants will receive lots of individual attention and direction. Painters may work in oil, acrylic or pastel and demonstrations will be offered in oil. Come with your plein air supplies, lunch and a drink. This is a two-day workshop, but you can sign up for one day if necessary.

Known for her impressionist approach to color and light, Craig’s subject matter includes urban and rural landscapes as well as intimate still life paintings, and figures within a landscape. Craig has had more than twenty years in the field to date, painting in both watercolor and oils. Like most artists, Craig continues to be a student of art, always reaching for a higher level of excellence, while discovering and expressing her own voice.

In order to focus on her own painting, Craig is hosting fewer workshops than in the past. You won’t want to miss this one. Registration is limited to 15 people.
