The Glen Echo Park Partnership is pleased to present Federico A. Ruiz: Land, Sea & Sky: A Minimalist’s Caribbean. Federico A. Ruiz, a D.C. first responder and former military, gives a fresh perspective on the Caribbean landscape. As a descendant of Dominican immigrants, Ruiz is inspired by the Dominican Republic coast that was near his family’s estate. This body of work hints at his impression of the convergence of land, sea and sky. Relying on color, little to no texture and geometric shapes, Ruiz is able to convey distinct horizons and nature’s essence. These minimalist paintings find the visual abstract elements of the Dominican Republic’s Caribbean landscape.

Jeff Cooper & Rebecca Hirsh: Crossing Paths

July 1 to 30, 2017

Saturdays & Sundays, 11am - 6pm and by appointment

Art Walk Opening Reception, Friday, July 7, 6 to 8pm

Presenter: Glen Echo Park Partnership for Arts & Culture

Location: Popcorn Gallery

Admission: Free

The Glen Echo Park Partnership is pleased to present Jeff Cooper and Rebecca Hirsh: Crossing Paths. This exhibition pairs two-dimensional work by Rebecca Hirsh alongside three-dimensional sculptures by Jeff Cooper. Cooper admires the ever-changing properties of wood - always shrinking or expanding, darkening, lightening, or aging. Rather than carving from one piece of wood, Cooper assembles pieces of wood, combining the grains and figures. His sculptures attract the eye and invite the viewer to examine the details.

Originally a painter, Rebecca Hirsh explores the medium of wood for this exhibition. Using what she can salvage from Cooper’s studio, Hirsh constructs her collages by painting the pieces of wood and arranging them. She is inspired by color, shapes and lines, and how they occupy space.

Hirsh’s wood collages and Cooper’s wood sculptures reflect the influence each artist has on the other, truly crossing paths.

Amanda Spaid: Natural Wonders

July 1 to 30, 2017

The Glen Echo Park Partnership is pleased to present Amanda Spaid: Natural Wonders. This exhibition features Spaid’s intricate drawings on wood, highlighting birds that can be found in the DC area--from spectacular and elusive migrants like the Baltimore Oriole and the Scarlet Tanager, birds of prey such as the Peregrine Falcon and Eastern Screech Owl, to backyard favorites such as the Cardinal and Ruby-Throated Hummingbird. She uses the wood grain in a creative way; whether it is the design of the background, or the deciding factor on which bird goes on that particular wood piece.
A Maryland native, Spaid attended the School of Art and Design at Montgomery College in Silver Spring (formerly the Maryland College of Art and Design), and later the Columbus College of Art and Design in Ohio, where she earned her Bachelor’s in Illustration. Spaid specializes in colored pencils and other dry media on wood panel as well as digital painting/illustration.
