Last Chance to See Exhibition at CUA!

In Dialogue with the Elders, sculpture by Greg Metcalf and paintings by Champneys Taylor at Salve Regina Gallery, Catholic University, runs through March 2nd. If you have not seen this show yet, I highly recommend that you check it out! The show was curated by Phoebe Esmon, who writes: "The works of Greg Metcalf and Champneys Taylor that were chosen for this exhibition embody two unique but contiguous perceptions of art history and its relationship to working in the studio. Uniting these works is the fact that each artist is engaged in a dialogue with particular figures from art history-the "Elders" of the exhibitions title. Each artist invokes and thus engages with the creative forces that inform the artist's own art-historical movement, and this dialogic process both forms and informs the artist's work. While Metcalf overtly invokes the cultural figures that have interested and excited him, Taylor's references are more metaphorical, and often so subtle as to be subliminal." The show was reviewed in last week's Washington Post, Galleries section.
Catholic University is located at 620 Michigan ave, NE, Washington, DC Metro red line to Brookland/CUA

Christo's and Jeanne-Claude's Gates

I spent the weekend in NYC with my Aunt and Step Dad. Saturday was a great day to stroll through Central Park and wind through the swirling maze of saffron! It was amazing! There were so many people and so much energy. Late afternoon was really nice because the sun was showing through the fabric and casting wonderful shadows from the trees. We went to the Met and checked out the exhibition of Ruben's drawings and then back through Central Park on the way home after dark. Walking under the gates at night was entirely different from the daytime. It was quite a contrast, everyone had cleared out and the wind died down, so it was very still and serene. After that, we went off to Queens for some excellent Italian food and wine! Yummy!
