Recovered Memory: New York & Paris 1960-1980

December 14, 2018 - January 20, 2019
Saturdays, 1 to 4pm and Sundays, 1 to 7pm
Reception, Gallery Talk, Book Signing: Friday, December 14, 6 to 8pm

The Photoworks Gallery is proud to host the first solo exhibition of work from Frank Van Riper's bestselling latest book, Recovered Memory: New York & Paris 1960-1980. The exhibition opens Friday evening December 14, 6 to 8pm and also will be accompanied by a lecture and book-signing. The show runs through January 20, 2019.

Recovered Memory: New York & Paris 1960-1980 is a meditation on time and place: before the internet and 24/7 news; when one could visit the Eiffel Tower without seeing police and automatic weapons, when a ride on the New York subway cost 15 cents, when the smell of fresh-baked baguettes wafted over nearly every Parisian neighborhood, and when the Coney Island parachute ride still thrilled thousands. Van Riper's striking black and white photographs, coupled with his eloquent text, capture the 20th-century romance and grit of New York more than half a century ago, and Paris, some forty years ago. It was a time when the pace of life was slower and somehow less threatening, people talked to each other instead of texting on their iPhones, and you literally had to stop and smell the coffee or freshly baked bagel.

Veteran photographer, author and journalist Frank Van Riper has been a Photoworks faculty for more than a dozen years. His award-winning career in journalism began in 1967 at the New York Daily News where for 20 years he served as a White House correspondent, national political correspondent and Washington Bureau news editor. After that, he was the photography columnist of the Washington Post for 19 years.

Somewhere Over the Sea: Pottery by Eunkyung Han

January 5 to 26, 2019

Mondays through Saturdays, 10am to 6pm

Presenter: Glen Echo Park Partnership for Arts and Culture

Location: Park View Gallery

Admission: Free

Contact Phone: 301-634-2222

 


The Glen Echo Park Partnership is pleased to present Somewhere Over the Sea, showcasing ceramic work by 2018 Labor Day Art Show’s Park View Artist Awardee Eunkyung Han. Han, originally from South Korea, started working in pottery as a hobby after moving to the United States and found inspiration with an influential teacher at Harvard’s ceramics studio who cultivated her enthusiasm for the art.  After a several-year hiatus, she relocated to Maryland and continued her pottery career at Glen Echo Pottery. Han always admired the curved line of architect Antoni Gaudi, who said, “La línea recta es del hombre, la curva pertenece a Dios.” [The straight line belongs to man and the curved line to God.] Han incorporates her own beautiful curves in her recent work, and she is inspired by intriguing natural objects.

The Glen Echo Park Partnership is pleased to present Ingrained: Sculpture and Furniture in Wood.  This exhibition celebrates the ways wood as a medium lends itself to diverse interpretations as both sculptural and functional forms. Three artists bring their own perspectives as they explore the beauty of wood. Alex Kasten’s wall-hung and sculptural forms explore transformation and reinvention, while Davrill Nash’s furniture lends a simple elegance to wooden forms.  Lynda Smith-Bugge’s sculptures reveal interior strength, spirit and timelessness, emerging from their rough-hewn original exteriors.

Capital Blues proudly presents weekly Thursday night blues dances. We rotate DJs and instructors each week to inspire and challenge you. A beginner workshop from 8:15 - 9:00 pm offers important partnering basics for new dancers. The class is included with admission; no partner necessary. Dancing runs from 9 pm to 11:30 pm to blues music from every corner of the genre. Note: the entrance to Ballroom Back Room is on far left side of Spanish Ballroom.
