Saturdays & Sundays, 12 pm - 6 pm and by appointment
Opening Reception & Juror's Talk: Saturday, April 8, 6 to 8pm
Presenter: Glen Echo Park Partnership for Arts & Culture & Washington Sculptors Group
The Glen Echo Park Partnership for Arts and Culture and the Washington Sculptors Group presents Sculpture REMIX: 2017 Craft/Technology/Art. This exhibition, juried by Allison Nance, brings together the diverse work of 20 artists from the D.C., Maryland and Virginia area in highlighting both the materials and the process. The dialogue of the show is aimed to re-establish the value and benefits associated with multi-tiered and cross discipline collaborations of artists, crafters and industrial designers. Building and constructing shared principles across these fixed boundaries has the ability to create poetic juxtapositions for cooperative projects.
During the weekend of April 8 & 9, artist Marc Robarge collaborated with Park visitors to develop textural rubbings for his piece "The Land..." included in the Sculpture REMIX 2017: Craft/Technology/Art exhibition in the Popcorn Gallery.
Marc Robarge's piece will be a compilation of textural rubbings that will form an American flag. This community project is meant to engage people working together to construct an environmental and socially relevant image. Unity, collaboration, dialogue, creativity, connection to the earth and one another are themes woven into the process and materials involved in making this piece, which echo the themes of process and materials inherent in the entire show.
The piece will be installed in the exhibition by Saturday, April 15.
The Yellow Barn Gallery presents Barry Galef. There will be an artist reception Saturday, April 15, 5 to 8pm. This show will run from April 15 to 16. For more information go to the Yellow Barn website.
