Glen Echo Park Partnership is pleased to present Richard Weiblinger: Unique Visions. This exhibition showcases photographs from the self-taught artist Richard Weiblinger. Weiblinger prefers subjects that lead to images with chromatic strength and uses creative lighting to not only illuminate the subjects, but also to give them a dream-like, surreal quality. His photographs are most successful when they reveal either the subject’s vibrant colors or subtle elegance. Most of the subjects are photographed using a macro lens. This focuses on the intimate elements of the subject with a shallow and selective depth of field. Weiblinger’s goal is to have viewers look at his work and find a new appreciation of the world around them.

Glen Echo Park Partnership is pleased to present Stephanie George: Dream Visions. This exhibition features hand-painted monoprints by Stephanie George, an artist whose work has been exhibited widely in the Washington, DC area. George has always been a vivid dreamer. Some years ago, she started journaling her dreams when she woke up. George was fascinated at the bizarre images that came to her, like people having a conversation at a table in the middle of the road. Sometimes it’s a whole scene or narrative, sometimes it’s just a word or two, and other times it’s just an image. While initially for her own contemplation, gradually George began using these images in her work, which conveys their primitive, primal and naïve nature. After painting on canvas for years, George decided to try capturing these fleeting images in hand-printed monoprints; this method seemed more in keeping with the essence of dreams and their ephemeral quality.
