New Light | DC Arts Studios | Washington, DC
Opening Reception: 6-9pm on Thursday, September 24
DC Arts Studios presents New Light, a juried show of DC Arts members curated by Damon Arhos. Join us from 6-9pm for the opening reception in our new Willow Street Gallery space on the first floor. Complimentary snacks and beverages will be provided.
The definitions of the word “light” are numerous. Electromagnetic radiation. Dawn. Spiritual illumination. Enlightenment. Truth. As images inspired by these and other diverse interpretations, the artwork included in the DC Arts Studios exhibit, New Light, investigates our endlessly changing perceptions of depth, color and form. We exist in an age where technology continuously reinvents our understanding of the behavior of light. By continuing to explore its properties, these artists create abstract and representational forms that reinvent our visual sensations. Via intensity or absence, each artist demonstrates the power of luminosity to attract and engage. Further, each presents light within a present-day context, understanding both its historic legacy in art while celebrating its potential to inspire and inform. As such, these material interpretations are a renewal — a way to see the light anew.
Featured Artists: Jo Ann Block, Pam Eichner, Bradley Gay, Julie Koehler, Leslie Goldman, Sara Levy, Megan Maher, Jim Maio, William Mitchell, Craig Moran, Nikkia K. Redd, Maria Simonsson, Sarah West, Jordann Wine and Sean Yates.
