Seduction –Aug 10 – Sept 17
Opening reception Sunday Aug 13, 4-6 pm
Gallery Talk Sunday, Sept 10, 2 pm
The gallery talk will feature both me and Dr. L. Erich Keel. Dr. Keel served as Head of Education for the Kreeger Museum until his retirement in 2013. Currently he lectures on twentieth-century German art, leads art-themed study tours to Europe, and serves as a volunteer curator for the Arts Club of Washington exhibition program. Keel earned a Ph.D. in Critical Theory from Emory University.
Gallery hours are Thursday Friday and Sunday from 12-4 pm; Saturday from 1-4 pm.
These two new paintings will be featured in my upcoming August 2017 solo exhibition – Seduction – at the Old Town Alexandria, Virginia Athenaeum Gallery.
Both pieces, 36″x60″ acrylic on canvas, feature a man with great dignity and power, yet the images are infused with color and an other-worldly feeling. Ambiguity, uncertainty, perhaps fleeting glimpses of reality infuse these abstracted visuals of modern life.
In anticipation of the upcoming solo exhibit August 10 through September 17 at the Athenaeum in Old Town Alexandria,VA, working on some new paintings. So far, they’re all about the drip. Is there such a thing as too much? Perhaps, in fact, probably. But, my plan is to push the limits. Many thanks to Gallery Director/curator Twig Murray and the Northern Virginia Fine Arts Association for the sponsorship.

Some of my newest work that will feature in a solo exhibit at New York City’s Artifact Gallery during March 2017.
It’s always challenging to put together a cohesive, yet excitingly surprising exhibit. Style, canvas size, color, texture, pose, feeling, and theme all contribute to making a consistent message. But, it’s critical to shake things up with punctuation marks that give a rhythmic jolt to the whole. Like music, visual arts rely on surprise, sparkle, and the unexpected riff for interest and dash.
Once everything has been painted, the critical curatorial step remains: move the artwork around the space until the show taps out a lively beat with plenty of unanticipated punctuation.
Until then, find my artwork every day at Susan Calloway Fine Arts, in Washington, DC’s trendy, historic Georgetown.
