Presented by the Glen Echo Park Partnership for Arts and Culture, Tower in Three brings an installation by Washington, D.C. artist Barbara Liotta and curated by Laura Roulet to Glen Echo Park’s Stone Tower Gallery. The work is inspired by the architecture of the historic Stone Tower.  
 
Liotta suspends dozens of shattered chunks of granite in three dimensions, creating an airborne inner tower, with its cylindrical shape echoed by a stone circle on the floor. The double suspended cylinder and ground circle become three forms of a tower.  In an Artist Statement, Liotta explains that she “…found the Glen Echo Park Stone Tower to be a uniquely challenging space....The piece is in three parts: the inner circle which reaches upward; the outer circle which plunges downward; and the separate bottom, the tower’s crashed echo across the floor. It is constructed from Brazilian granite, which compliments the stone of the building itself.”
 

Liotta lives and works in Washington D.C. In 2014, she was commissioned by the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities to create nine monolithic sculptures for Legacy Memorial Park in Northeast Washington, honoring those killed in the 2009 Metro crash. She has also been commissioned to create works for several embassies throughout the world.

The Glen Echo Park Partnership for Arts and Culture is pleased to present a solo exhibition of work by Walt Bartman. Inspired to face nature, Bartman is constantly searching for a sense of place. His work in Walt Bartman: Journey showcases his talent for capturing the light, color, and atmosphere in the landscape as he explores his journey as an artist.   Like Turner, to Bartman “The Sun is God!” and his search is for poetic spirituality. Growing up “out of the furnace” in North Braddock, Pennsylvania, a steel town near Pittsburgh that was then in its heyday, Bartman vividly remembers images of the mills at night and the energy of the rich colors emanating from the steel furnaces and reflected in the skies. It was captivating to see flames reaching toward the heavens. He has carried this imagery with him throughout his life, and it continues to inspire him. Bartman is known both nationally and internationally for his painting and teaching. He is the Founder and Director of the Yellow Barn Studio at Glen Echo Park in Glen Echo, Maryland. He has taught in the Washington D.C. area for more than forty years. Specializing in landscape and figure painting, he is known as one of Maryland's finest artist /teachers.

The Glen Echo Park Partnership for Arts and Culture is pleased to present Sara Dittrich: Arrhythmia of the BodyThe artist often takes a multimedia approach, incorporating elements of sculpture and performance to investigate the dynamic acts of listening, communicating, and moving. "Arrhythmia of the Body" features photographs and 2D mixed media works that meditate on the acts of listening, making, and moving. The main focus of the exhibition will be a series of photos that document the artist moving through space wearing gigantic prosthetic hands and feet. The prosthetics were designed to disrupt the artist's everyday movements, in order to make her more conscious of them. Supplementing this work will be a series of 2D mixed media panels composed of hundreds of tiny ears created out of clay. They will be arranged in ways that encourage the viewer to develop a renewed awareness of the human body.
